A Trip to Fernbank Museum and a Green Sweater Outfit

My boyfriend Matt does a wonderful job of gifting me with fun outings for us to go on. It's true that an experience gift is much more memorable than most object-based gifts. He gave me a double outing gift for my birthday with the Zoo Atlanta day and then Fernbank Museum of Natural History. He used to go to Fernbank Museum in Atlanta when he was a little kid but since I didn't live in the Atlanta area back then, I never got to go on a field trip there! It's always fun stepping out of the usual routine and going on a mini adventure. Especially with Matt. I'm a big fan of museums too so it was kind of weird that I'd never been to this one right in Atlanta.

We took our sweet time walking around the museum and taking pictures with the various dinosaur statues. They have an IMAX theatre and we got to see a really neat film about the diversity of animals on the Galapagos Islands. I was super intrigued by the museum's floors too. They're made of rock with tons of fossils scattered throughout and you can actually find Trilobites under your feet. (I do realize that everything I'm saying sounds ultra nerdy. Feel free to judge me.)

Anyway! I wore a slightly festive outfit since we were heading into holiday times when we took this trip. This green sweater I thrifted is nice and light for our usually mild fall days. I added my gold mini skirt since it hadn't been worn in a while. It's actually a really comfortable skirt and doesn't look too dressy when worn with flats.

Did you guys have a good weekend? Mine went by really quickly especially since the entirety of Friday was spent traveling. I'll be getting back into the swing of things today and also probably speed read a library book before I have to take it back. I hope you all have a great start to your week!

The sweater you were wearing is a beautiful shade of green and has me starting to long for Saint Patrick's Day. Your eye-makeup is beautiful. Your look back over your shoulder in the fifth (fourth to last) photo and your wide-eyed look in the second to last photo are both adorable. I couldn't help but think of the movie "Jurassic Park" seeing the realistic looking dinosaur behind you. I don't think it's nerdy at all. Actually it's fascinating. I'm just glad the big flesh-eating dinosaurs aren't around today. Crocodiles, bears and and Hilo monsters are scary enough.
