Boy did my weekend start off interesting! Friday after work I ran up to the mall to grab a few things. The weather was not looking too good, but I checked to see where the storm was going to hit and it was going to miss Fayetteville, so I ventured to the mall. Well what i didnt know is that there was TWO storms. While I was shopping I was getting weather text message alerts saying Severe Thunderstorm warning, and I thought it was the storm that was going to hit north of us. Then I went into Dillards and saw that a lot of the employees were looking outside and then I saw some smaller tress spinning from the wind.. ummm not good. THEN I get another text message alert stating TORNADO WARNING…… uh oh! Of course I would be at the mall during a Tornado warning! So I call my family to see where they are and then the manager comes over the intercom stating that there is indeed a tornado cloud RIGHT ABOVE THE MALL and that it is showing signs of dropping, but is going back up into the sky. Cue Tara freaking out. So we all venture to the Dillards basement to wait out the storm. I call Drew and of course, he doesnt think its that big of a deal (even though the tornado sirens were going off) What he didnt know is that I was where the epicenter of the storm was! Luckily nothing happened and the storm passed over in about 3 min. I think next time I should probably stay home!! Needless to stay I stayed home the rest of the night and hung out with Drew and Sadie : )
Saturday morning I went to a baby shower for Erin. My brother in law’s mom, Becky, threw the shower at her home. It was beautiful! We had so much fun and ate a yummy brunch. I cant wait to meet Little Sam! Here are some pics!
Becky and my mom
How scary! I would have freaked out. I’ve only had a tornado experience once in college, and boy was it scary. We were all moved into my sorority’s basement for the storm.
The table is gorgeous!!! And your white shoes, precious!!!
Those white shoes are super cute!
I love those white shoes!!! Please tell us where you got those beauties, I need some cute white heals for a wedding this summer
Um, we are soul sisters, I swear! Two years ago, I was stuck inside a spa during a tornado. I just had to get my facial. Thankfully, the spa had a hallway where we all hid for about 30 minutes. Nedless to say, my hubs will never let me live that one down. ever!
p.s. Love all the pictures! The mommy to be is just glowing.
Oh my goodness I hate tornadoes!! I would have been freaking out too! You must be one dedicated shopper – HA! Love your shower outfit and the flower in your hair! So adorable!
I’m so glad you guys came out Saturday night. We had so much fun. Next time we will start out at Fix so we don’t miss out on dancing time!!!
Also, I can’t believe that now you know how close we live to each other, you are moving. But, I am glad you are moving somewhere nicer at the same time. Let us know if you need any help.
Im so glad youre ok!!! and omg how amazing are your white shoes with the bow and the matching one in ur hair!! xxooo
I can’t belive that tornado story! I would have been so scared! Love the outfit you wore at the shower, you look beautiful!
I would have been panicking too…hope you at least picked out some fun stuff 🙂
love the coral dress…is it forever? I could NEVER wear a white flower in my hair either…you are too cute!
I guess I missed the post about why you are packing…did ya’ll buy a new house?
glad you had a great weekend!
You look cute beyond words in that red dress and white accessories! Love it!
Only you Tara – Shane and I were laughing since we knew you were okay =)!
well good luck with the packing/move! sounds exciting!
I want to go to Francesca’s right now to get that dress!

im in love with your shoes!! where did you get them?
glad dillards didnt collapse on you!
have fun packing this week.
those shoes are FABULOUS 🙂 I love them!!
i would have been scared to death at the mall 🙂 glad you are ok girly.
cute photos! I would have been freaking out too!
The table is gorgeous, i have the same flowered F21 heels, and i would SO prob. be stuck at a mall while a tornado is going on as well..lol!
Sounds like a great weekend! (Oh, minus the Tornado!) I’d also be the one who’s in the mall on a wonderful day like that!
But you look fabulous in all the pictures! xoxo
pretty table, pretty girls, & i know you're not supposed to be jealous…..but i am so jealous you are moving!!
UMMMM, I would have FREAKED over the tornado!! Crazy!! Love the shoes, dress, accessories…as usual!:)
Only you, Tara, would be at the mall during a tornado!! None of your family was surprised and hasn’t stopped laughing yet! I am amazed that you didn’t have Sadie with you!
Scary! Scary! Scary!! That is one thing I do NOT miss about living in the midwest (and in tornado alley). Colorado rarely gets tornadoes, and if they do they tend to be reeeeally weak, since we’re so close to the mountains here. Some of the towns on the eastern plains of CO have to worry a bit more, but not us near the Rockies! They don’t even have tornado sirens here! Husband (who grew up in Colorado) doesn’t even know what to do in a tornado- I had to demonstrate how to crouch low with your hands over your head. LOL. I’ve been trained well from years of living in South Dakota!
Do your white shoes have flowers on them??? OMG! They are so cute, where on earth did you get them??!?!?? As always, you look super cute!
oh my god that tornado story is like my worst nightmare ever ever ever!! I am absolutely terrified of tornadoes!
What a pretty table setting! Love the colors!
And of course, you look amazing as always!
Good luck with packing!
Um, wow. Too funny that would be stuck in a mall during a tornado, though, I’m sure it was anything but funny at the time!
You poor thing!! I would have freaked!!!!! Love the beautiful pictures, as always, and those shoes are too fabulous!!!!! So cute!!!
I would have been freaking out! We’ve had quite a few tornado warnings since I’ve lived in Austin, and it always worries me to no end because I live in a top floor apartment! Glad everything was ok!
Your mama is a hottie!! Haha! So good to know that you shall keep your looks in yearssss to come. 😉
Great story about the storm! I remember a few years ago Chad and I were in Bass Pro in Branson and that happened to us! I would have much rathered been in Dillards than in a hallway with a bunch of rednecks! HAHA! 😉 Cute pics, the shower was beautiful!
That sounds SO scary!!! there is crazy weather EVERYwhere!!! we are going to get 30 mph winds tonight! yikes!
PS I can not believe you are going to the Derby next year!!! how cool !!!!!
i would have been freaking out too! i love your dress and shoes for the shower! you all look soo cute!!
I would have had an anxiety attack! Weren’t you scared?
Great shower pics!
I am always amazed that I can’t stay out as late as I used to! It’s shocking really, but we’re probably better off going home a bit earlier now!
Ahh That is so scary about the tornado!
Cute table & super cute dress!
