Friends!  It has felt like so long since I blogged - I have missed my late night computer sessions dumping out my latest home decor loves with all of you!;).  We finally made it back from our 11 day vacation, and I know everyone says this when they get back from a vacation with kids, but I 100% needed a vacation from my vacation.  Everything was perfect, we were extremely lucky to not be affected by Hurricane Matthew, good food, good family time, all was well.  But, for those of you who have kiddos - you just know, and I don't need to say anything further.

Because we decided to come home on a has been balls to the wall since we stepped foot off of that plane.  Jumping back into work, school, meetings, school mornings, lunch packing, real life, etc. - it is no joke;).  Because of the timing, I decided to take the rest of the week off from blogging to try and clear my head and re-focus on some ideas for the rest of the year.

We had a super busy and super fun weekend, but I couldn't wait for Sunday morning!  Sunday morning was my day to hit up the Pottery Barn Outlet that recently opened up in St. Louis.  From what I have heard this is a pop-up shop only, and will not be around forever.  If anyone knows of a timeline - please share.  I was also told they receive shipments every week on Wednesdays and Fridays.

My Mom has already been a few times and snagged some awesome deals, so my expectations were pretty high.  Be prepared to dig and possibly bring a pair of scissors or a pocket knife to open up boxes.  There was a ton of merchandise there, and a lot of it was still in it's box.  It did have the name of the item on the side, and I was spending quite a bit of time on my phone googling to see what was inside the box.  But, if I would have been by myself (I had Gwen with me) - it probably would have been easier to just open up the boxes to see what was inside.  Because they get shipments each week, I am assuming their inventory changes.  This week there was a ton of PB Kids items...tons of comforters, duvet covers, sheet sets, curtains (they had those awesome pom pom curtains!), a lot of the Emily and Merritt collection, and various other decorative items.  I was a little disappointed with the prices of some of the furniture items.  A few of the items had significant damage to them, but they were still not marked down to what I would classify as a clearance sale price.  I am all for repairing small dings/scratches, but these were more like deep gashes or grooves...

I loved these, and they were only $130/each - which I thought was decent -

I have an obsession with owning a pair of trunk style end tables...I search for them everywhere I go.  These were gorgeous, but still $250/each - so no go today...

 LOVED this rug...

And this one too -

Is there a PB outlet near you?  This is the first I have heard of one, and feel lucky it is so close to me;), lol.  If you have been to one - did you find anything you had to have?!  And if so, was the price right??
