The beginning of deer season begins the first weekend in November, and you can love it, or hate it. I, personally, do not like that my husband goes hunting to kill deer, but on the other hand, I eat chicken, beef, fish, etc. So really- who am I to judge?
When opening weekend for deer hunting rolls around, I’ve decided to embrace the fact that I’ll be a hunting widow. How do I do that? I shop!

Because my mother-in-law, Mathew’s aunt, and his cousins all have husbands who hunt, we’ve made it this fun tradition that while the guys are out hunting and attempting to kill deer, we shop til we drop. Not to mention, it also rolls around the time of my sister-in-law’s birthday, so we kind of make it this one big huge ordeal where we go to Dallas or Austin and eat delicious food, shop, and basically do whatever we want. It’s a win-win for us all!
Here are some shopping faves I’m LOVING right now:
1. The Stump. If you’ve never heard of this and you have an iPad, you totally need this. I’m not lying- it’s totally changed my life. Mathew and I love to watch shows we’ve missed (like Grey’s Anatomy) online. We use our silicone Stump to keep the iPad still while we watch our show, and it’s awesome. I also love to FaceTime my bloggy friends (like Laura and Becka), and so instead of holding up my iPad for 3 hours, I just put it in my Stump. My stump is hot pink, and it’s my new favorite toy. They’re really not a bad price, and would be a pretty good Christmas gift if you ask me.
