I warned Rob to wear comfortable shoes because my plan was to "shop til we drop" and we definitely did. We covered every inch of Mistletoe Market and then headed to Bass Pro Shop and the outlets. After knocking out 3/4 of shopping list (and being exhausted!), we decided to call the shopping day a success and head to dinner.
Dinner was the start of my love affair with Jackson, Mississippi! I did a little google search and came across a bunch of great reviews for Babalu.

After dinner, we headed to Whole Foods (with our cold bags) to pick up a couple of staples to bring back to Meridian.

After a super productive weekend, it was nice to relax on Sunday. We did the usual meal prep, Sam's Club run, and yoga and then spent the rest of the day relaxing, watching football and reading.
