Scenes From Our Weekend

Mar 12, 2012

Happy Monday Dolls! Several of you asked what Marshalls I shop at when I am in Charlotte, it’s the one at Cotswold. We always go to that one because it gets in pretty good brands (ie. Vince, See by Chloe, Paige, J Brand, Marc Jacobs, Prada- just a few they have right now). You still have to dig but you can find some great stuff there.

We had a good weekend, but they sure do go by fast! Here’s what went down:

I ended up staying in Charlotte til Saturday. I decided to stay and meet one of my oldest friends for a drink Friday night. Here is what I wore:

Tory Burch Cardigan, Micheal Stars Tank Top, Seven “The Skinny” Jeans, Halston Flats.

Got new lamps for our dining room buffet and a new Lucite chair for our desk. Thank you Mom for the lamps and thank you TJMaxx for the amazing Lucite chair.

We took Sterling on his first bike ride and he absolutely loved it!! Anyone know where we can find a cute kids Helmet? We just took him for a slow spin around the block because we couldn’t find a Helmet.

My mother-in-law gave me the most gorgeous Oscar De La Renta Coffee table book. I love it so much!

The tulips the hubs gave me for Valentines that we planted finally bloomed this week- look how pretty!

Tried the best flatbread ever from Trader Joes, Wild Mushroom and Black Truffle. This will be eaten on a regular basis around here (although I did add more cheese to ours, I love ALOT of cheese).

We cooked one of my all time favorite side dishes to go with our Burgers, Confetti Corn. See Recipe Here. I added fresh Swiss Chard from our garden and it was the perfect addition!

Lastly I am guesting posting over at Sam’s gorgeous blog “The Peak of Tres Chic” about my Monday Inspirations!
