Don't judge us, but it's been a minute since we've been to The Village at Meridian. An unexpected detour took us out there this weekend and we discovered that there are a bunch of new projects underway! 

We'll be honest, it's been about two months since we were spent time at The Village at Meridian. Once our lash artist moved out of one of the suites there, we really haven't had a reason to make that drive from Southeast Boise. That was until Saturday when our trip to buy shampoo at the Ulta by Boise Towne Square failed.

Like a lot of other businesses, they're having a hard time keeping the store properly staffed so we were greeted by a sign on the door saying they were doing curbside orders only and that people who wanted to shop in-store should visit the location in Meridian.

So, off to Meridian we went for the first time since the end of October. When we pulled into the Village, we got curious about all the construction we saw underway. After we were done shopping, we decided to check up on the "coming soon" section of their website to see what was happening! Here's what we found out.
