Weekend Happenings

Oct 17, 2011

We had the most lovely weekend. Here’s what went down.
We finally took Sterling to the Pumpkin Patch! He absolutely loved it and tried to lift all the big pumpkins. He was hilarious!

After the Pumpkin Patch my sister and I hit up a cute bar in West Ashley to grab a beer called the Oak Barrel Tavern. The owner was super nice and let us sample a few beers before we decided what we wanted. They had a great beer and wine selection with a laid back atmosphere. You must stop in this cute bar if you live in Charleston!

Sterling loved it at the Oak Barrel and the owner assured us we were not the first people to bring a baby to a bar in the afternoon!

We had friends over for dinner Saturday night and I made the Pioneer Woman’s Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos. They were amaze to say the least.

We also enjoyed some festive Halloween Drinks my brother-in-law made that were delightful! Recipes for both to come Wednesday!

Sunday we took a family boat ride. We are trying to get in as many boat rides as we can before it gets too cold!

And our lemon tree sprouted a big lemon! I can’t wait til we have tons of fresh lemons!

I hope you all enjoyed your weekends! xoxo

  3. Dear Sterling,
    I know you are betrothed to our dear sweet Lily and that I am also spoken for with my future husband Shepard. But perhaps we could go to prom together one day just to satisfy my mom.
    Love, Baby Wells
