What's Hap-"Pinning" Wednesdays {#18}

Happy Wednesday, friends! Hopefully you're surviving the week back after Thanksgiving weekend ok. I was MIA yesterday because work was super busy on Monday and I got home to Cooper having been sick (again) all over the kitchen, so I didn't really feel like sitting down to write a post after cleaning that (and him) up. Hopefully he's almost done with this thing he caught from my in-laws' dog...it's not been fun for any of us.
Anyway, on to more fun things, like what's hap-"pinning" lately! Remember you can link up about ANYTHING--it doesn't have to be Pinterest related!

The first thing that's hap-"pinning" is MG's birthday today! We'll be going out to dinner tonight, somewhere casual, and then having a double-date/double-birthday dinner celebration with another couple friend of ours which should be so fun!
You all already know how much I love MG, and how thankful I am for him, so I'll spare you and just share a pic from the first birthday we celebrated together, 4 years ago:

The second thing that's been going on--like most of you, I participated in the Black Friday (online only) and Cyber Monday shopping events. Not only did I get some great deals, but I went through ebates, and earned 10% cash back on every one of the purchases I made through big retailers!

Here's some of what I got, for myself my closet, because I don't want to share what I got for MG since he may see this and then my surprises will be ruined.

Old Navy had 50% off, so I stocked up on these two vests:
{found here}, currently $17                                               {found here} currently $18
I loved the herringbone vest which is similar to the J Crew one, but the reviews on the recent J Crew vests have been less than stellar in terms of quality. The reviews on this one were awesome. 
And the white vest will pair well with just about anything!

I snagged these two tops:
                                {via}                                           {via}, $32 (or $16 in two of the colors)

I got the yellow plaid shirt, currently $26.94, since I have the same flannel shirt just in another color and love it. I figured I'd venture out of my normal color scheme with the yellow.

And I've been ALLLLLL about the tunics lately (because, hello leggings!) so I grabbed this one, in cream, to wear with any of my colored fleece lined leggings for some comfy cozy-ness.

And because I wanted another active wear top, and pullover, I got these two:
{via}, $14.94                                                          {via}, $20

I love the fun back of the top, but they only had it in a medium in this color, so we will see if it fits me when it arrives. And I liked the dark cranberry color of the pullover (you all know my obsession this season with that color). 

These prices are more than what I paid on the 50% off sale, but even at these prices, they're still a great deal.

And now, not only is it time to get back to shopping for other people, but it's also time to link up with Jessi and I below to share what's hap-"pinning" with you!

  14. I hope you guys have a fun night celebrating! I did a ton of online shopping during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales and made all my purchases through ebates too.

  20. I totally hit up Old Navy on Black Friday too!! I got an off white vest (the thinner one!), another sweater, and a plaid button down shirt! I was super close to buying the Herringbone vest too but put it back at the last minute. Which I regretted as soon as I got home! lol
