Weekend Recap... The Good, The Great, and The Food Poisoning

Hello, hello! I had a wonderful weekend... although it ended in food poisoning tragedy last night! I truly can't think of a worse experience, sadly, and after being up all night I'm now home from work trying to recover.

Now that I've gotten that out of the way... the rest of my weekend was fabulous!

My best friend from kindergarden came to visit from NYC (the greatest treat!), and we took my new ride out for a road trip! There's nothing better than a road trip, in my mind.

Our adventure was out to the Eastern Shore of Maryland for some antique shopping. Not only is that area beautiful and quant, but we found lots of treasures for her shop on Etsy, Octavia & Brown. Above is Mason's, a delicious lunch spot in downtown Easton where we enjoyed a light bite before heading to Oxford for more finds!

While I'm feeling pretty low now after battling through last night, I have great memories from our adventure and feel so lucky to have such an old friend in my life!

I forgot to mention... we had the BEST luck at the J.Crew and Kate Spade outlets on our way home! Jackpot!

Ohh, this looks like so much fun! The bf and I have been looking to have a little weekend getaway. You'll have to let me know your suggestions!

Ohhh sounds like such fun! I love the little I've seen of Maryland and am eager to explore more. Your friend's shop is darling. Wish I had a sweet girlfriend like you to accompany me on my shopping trips!!! XOXO
P.S. Hope you feel better : (

I would love to make some suggestions! There are so many wonderful options in that area... I love the Inn at Perry Cabin (although it is pricey), the Tidewater Inn (in Easton, but a short drive to the water)! Also, Annapolis historic inns have some great deals this time of year.

Thanks, Kate! Still not feeling great, but I think the worst is behind me.

Anytime you need Eastern Shore antiquing recommendations, I'd be happy to help. There are some great finds out there!

My friend LOVED your shop as well when I showed her! I'll pass along the compliment!

that last photo reminded me of what Latitude 38 used to look like. Chestertown is good spot to wander about in, & there's a good museum in Columbia.

I'm definitely planning a trip to Chestertown...

Latitude 38 is still there, although a bit different than what it originally looked like when first opened. Love Oxford!

Thanks for the tips, Clarke!
