LIFE | The Kierra Quinn Weekend, November 24 -27

Monday, November 28, 2016

Thanks to my #instagramhusband, a new lifestyle series has been added to The Kierra Quinn! We had a busy, baby free weekend, so I will be sharing snapshots of what we ate, experienced, + of course, wore. 

You may be surprised to know that we aren't huge Black Friday shoppers. We find deals pretty frequently throughout the year, so it's never been a big deal for us. That being said, this year we did end up doing a little shopping. We started at Carters. My sister in law works there + insisted we check it out since she was working that night. I'm so glad we did. Their entire store was 60% off with an additional 20% off by way of an online coupon code. I was able to find a lot of great pieces for Bentlee, but my favorite has to be this white fuzzy sweater she's wearing below. My husband was able to find great deals at JCPenney, including an *AMAZING* wine colored velvet blazer he has been eyeing for a while. It's safe to say I'm pretty jealous of his find. I also did a little online shopping when we came home. Colourpop Cosmetics, my OBSESSION, had all of their liquid lipsticks for $4.80 + 20% off their lip bundles. {I will be swatching my finds via my Instagram Story when I receive them later this week!}

This is when the Baby Free part of the weekend began! {Shoutout to my parents for taking BQ for a long vaca!} We spent most of our afternoon shopping at Tanger Outlets {can't believe it has already been open a year here in Grand Rapids}. We went to Old Navy, their entire store was 50% off + H&M which had deals as low as $4.99, including 30% extra off clearance. Since we were baby-free, we enjoyed a date night! We had dinner at Reserve, a wine bar in downtown Grand Rapids. {They have wine ON TAP!} It had been a long time since we ate there, but their new cheese + charcuterie plate was AMAZING!

One of the things I was MOST excited about was S L E E P I N G I N Saturday morning. BQ has been waking up as early as 6am since the time change, so being able to wake up whenever we felt like was MUCH NEEDED! {You don't realize how much of a luxury that really is until you have a baby!} My husband made breakfast tacos {he's an amazing cook} + we *screamed* I mean watched a disappointing Michigan football game. It was also Small Business Saturday, so we went to an event hosted by a good friend of ours, Adrian Butler. You may recognize him from a previous post. He's a local DJ that also has his own clothing line. We attended his pop up shop, at Lamb Bride, featuring new pieces from his line. I also tried on pieces via Iconoclasp, by Ashley Triêu. She's a self taught clothing designer + a MAJOR sweetheart! Her pieces are unique, high quality with a balance of throwback + modern vibes. One piece that I fell in love with was the Felicity Ruffle Bodysuit. I was able to try it on + it fit like a glove! I could already picture at least three ways to style it, so that will be a future purchase! Another vendor at the event was Fox Naturals, a skin care line. This was my first time experiencing their products, but I am so happy I did! We purchased a few items from them. My favorites so far are the lavender + aloe face lotion + the peppermint + tea tree shampoo bar!

Since we did so much so far, we decided to take it easy on Sunday. We slept in *again* + my husband made breakfast *again*. I lounged around in my new tee {worn below} courtesy of GR Made Clothing! Next thing we knew it was time to pick up Bentlee from my parents. Even though we enjoyed a weekend together, we still missed our baby girl, + she was excited to see us too! {Crazy how we have spent the last 5 years of our marriage the two of us, but are so lost without BQ the minute she leaves!}

So that's the first edition of The Kierra Quinn Weekend! I hope this post told you a little more about me/BQ + our personal life. I would love to know how you spent your long weekend + if you enjoyed this post! Feel free to comment below. Thanks for reading!
