I hope everyone had a great weekend!  We ate at our favorite thai restaurant, Bhan Thai (pictures above), on Thursday and then had sushi at Sekisui on Saturday.  We also went to Studio on the Square and saw Grown Ups 2 in theaters.  It was hilarious.  I can't even remember if we ever saw the first one, but I don't think it even mattered.  It definitely isn't afamily movie at all, but it was so funny.  It had a great cast, and it had us laughing the entire time.  Then on Sunday we went and visited one of my grandmas, my parents and my nephews, Carter and Caleb.  We did lots of swinging and jumping on the trampoline with the boys, and Shane and I were both in a full-on sweat and were dizzy in about 5-10 minutes.  Apparently we just can hang like we used to.  = )  On our way back home we stopped by Jones Orchard and bought tomatoes, peaches and nectarines.  And I MUST tell you this story; just don't tell Shane.  We both use chapstick a lot.  I usually always carry some with me, but lately I have actually been wearing more tinted lipbalm instead.  We were almost to Jones Orchard, and Shane asked if I had any chapstick, and I said yes.  I gave him the bright pink one and told him it would go on clear.  I think I was crying under my sunglasses I was laughing so hard when he looked in the mirror.  The best part is that he forgot and was going to wipe it off when we pulled up to buy fruits and veggies.  I hopped out of the vehicle and the guy started asking me what kind of fruits and veggies I was looking for.  I looked over at Shane who had walked up beside me, and apparently he had completely forgotten to wipe off the hot pink lip balm.  I just wish I could have got it on camera.  = ) 
 
Today I'm wearing a fun new purse from Pink Slate Boutique.  It has a pretty neutral tan and light blue print on it, but I love the bright pop of neon yellow on it.  Right now Pink Slate Boutique is offering 20% off any purchase to my readers with the code WALKINGINMEMPHIS.  I am also wearing one of my new Urban Philosophy skirts.  I have worn a couple of their pieces quite a few times on here already.  Since the skirt is so bright, I wanted to tone it down a little with neutral, classy heels and a pretty blue silk blouse.  Today I am partnering with Urban Philosophy to giveaway a $30 credit to Urban Philosophy to one lucky reader!  The giveaway will end this Sunday, August 4 at midnight CST.  In addition to the giveaway, they are also offering 10% off any purchase with the code MEMPHISINHEELS!  To enter the giveaway:
 
1.)  Make sure you're following me via GFC.
2.)  Like Urban Philosophy on Instagram.
3.)  Like Urban Philosophy on Facebook and message them there letting them know what your favorite item is and that you came from my blog. 

Good luck and thanks for entering!  What is your favorite item from Urban Philosophy?  Did you enter the $1,000 cash giveaway?
