I am so sad this weekend is over! It was so amazing to spend it with the most amazing women I know. There was a ton of laughs, lots of catching up and even more shopping. I only have one more gift to pick up and then I am done Christmas shopping. I luckily have Monday (today) off from work to wrap some gifts, get caught up on laundry and other chores. Since we have a lot to get to…
Friday: I headed up to my friends house so we could drive together up to Stonewall Kitchen where we meet up with the other girls. Since we were about 40 minutes early we decided to hit Ogunquit beach which was a few miles down the road.
After leaving Stonewall Kitchen we went to Big Al’s. This dollar store is something else but it has the most random stuff ever.
We headed out to catch the parade but ending up missing it trying to find parking so we decided to just go shopping, duh?! We hit a bunch of little shops in the town and also a place called Reny’s which is a discount store similar to an Ocean State Job Lot. It is only in Maine so not surprisingly I found a lot of Duck Dynasty items.
We then hit up Applebees for dinner. They have a good special for Margarita’s and 1/2 price apps. I have never laughed so hard. Mom T. never really drinks and she tried a Sangria. We may have ordered one too many apps!!! We couldn’t finish half of it but they were all so good!! Proof that even non-bloggers take selfies!! (So caught girls!!!)
Saturday: We started the morning with breakfast where they make donuts fresh every morning. So yummy. The High school craft fair was next. I got a hand painted ornament, then we went to the town center for a few smaller shops.
Lynn and I decided to hit the Farnsworth Museum and they happened to be showing the Wizard of Oz exhibit. You can’t take pictures but I did snap the decal that were on the bathroom doors. Too cute.
Then it was off to Home Goods/TJ Maxx and the Hallmark store. After that we were hungry so we stopped for lunch. We rested a bit at the hotel and then it was time for the bonefire where we sing carols and Santa comes in on a fire truck.
We went back to the center of town for a bit more shopping until the fireworks display. My good friend Heather also helped a boy buy a nutcracker for Christmas. He wanted one so bad and she went in an told him she found the money on the ground.
We went back to Applebee’s for dinner and then headed back to the hotel and watched Christmas movies and laughed till we cried. Sunday came way to quickly and we headed home. Another wonderful trip and memories with my girls. I am forever grateful I have such amazing women in my life that I can count on, you make each get together even more memorable than the last one.
How was your weekend? Have you gone to any Christmas weekend festivals?
