Shop 'til you drop!

This past weekend, PC and I headed out with some good friends (shout out to the Sellers) on a weekend shopping excursion in Syracuse, NY. The trip did not disappoint... we shared a lot laughs as per usual, and the shopping was filled with good finds!

Many Canadians from this area head to down to Syracuse quite often to shop. There are great savings, and just a lot of things accessible that we can't get in Canada. It's been a while since PC and I have gone to Syracuse, but we've been saving our pennies for a quite some time and we were definitely excited to spend them on some great things!

We left early Friday morning, and our first stop was Watertown, NY at Kohl's. We did a little bit of damage there! Then we trucked onto Syracuse and did DSW and a few stores at the Carousel Center, and finally an hour or so spent at Target before hitting Dinosaur BBQ for dinner (more good friends were also in Syracuse doing the same thing as us, so we met up for dinner - BONUS)!!

We saved our 'shop til you drop' attitudes for Saturday, when we were up at 6am, showered and out the door (with coffee) by 8am! We tackled (no pun intended) Bass Pro Shop and a second Kohl's in Auburn, NY, and then braced ourselves for a FULL day of shopping at the Premium Outlets in Waterloo, NY.

After a long day, we opted for a quick bite at Heid's of Liverpool, as we were EXHAUSTED, and then had a good night's sleep before heading for home on Sunday.

Sunday we managed to hit The Christmas Tree Shop, TJ Maxx (x 2), a party store, Wegman's Grocery Store, and Price Chopper. We capped it off with a meal at Panera Bread in Watertown, and we busted through the border with no troubles!

It was an all around good trip, and a much needed get away from the stress of November!

Thanks to this trip, I have my Christmas shopping well underway, and some new clothes to head back to work in, in the New Year.

When we stopped to unload our passengers, this is what the back of our car looked like...


All around great weekend! If you are thinking of a shopping getaway for yourself or with friends and family, Syracuse and surrounding area is great place to do it!

I am already starting to save for late spring, when I'll need to spruce up my summer wardrobe!
