Scenes From Our Weekend

Jun 3, 2013

It has been awhile since I did a scenes from our weekend post because in all honesty our weekends have been kind of boring lately.  Lets be real, I am so tired most of the time and I can’t drink so I am not the funnest person to be around.  Most weekend nights we are in bed by 9 reading- so lame I know!  We finally made some plans this weekend and had friends over for dinner.  Here are a few snapshots from our weekend.

My weekend started off right when my Rag and Bone booties arrived.  Ladies, these are even better in person.  I am now convinced I need a black pair too.  Get em while they are still on sale.  My mom got a pair too and loves them- great for all ages:)

Rag and Bone Booties in Painted Leather

 Friday night we hit up the Yacht Club to let our wild man run around.  

Saturday morning, Sterling and I did our favorite activity and hit up the Farmers Market.  He played on the jump castles for like an hour.  I was slowly dying in the heat.  This is his tough face.

I did manage to snag these gorgeous flowers.   I have been trying not to buy fresh flowers lately to cut costs but these were too good of a deal and too pretty to pass up.

That night we had our friends over for dinner.  Here is what I wore.

[White tank top | Black Maxi Skirt (similar)]

We cooked up some amazing food.  We did our Kabobs with Hash Brown Casserole and then I tried out two new recipes- which one do ya’ll want for Recipe Wednesday??

Caprese Salad or BLT Dip.  Both were amazing.

We finally joined our neighborhood pool this year (thank you Mom and Dad) and hit it up for the first time this weekend.  The pool is nothing fancy no concession stand- but you can BYOB and it has some of the best views in town.  I think Sterling and I will be spending alot of time here this summer.

We spent alot of time walking around the block on Sterling’s scooter.  This thing was the best investment ever, Sterling loves it and I like to think it counts as physical activity for him.  For all you locals I got it at Wonder Works- it comes in pink too.  Sometimes he gets lazy and makes me pull him as seen in the pic below.

Lastly I spent alot of time in this Vince Dress.   It is the perfect dress to throw on for errands.  I am starting to become obsessed with the Vince brand.  They are such nice pieces that fit really well. They are great pregnant or not.

This particular pattern is sold out but the same style dress is available HERE and HERE.

Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend, now it is back to the grind.

  21. Hey, Natalie!
    I remember you asked a while back for suggestions for post, and I've got one. I remember you did one a while back about cooking for kids. I have a 2 year old, and he struggles with meals daily! Wondering what you cook for Sterling, and whether or not he eats with the two of you for dinner?

  22. You look fantabulous and have the cutest baby bump I ever did see! I am dying for that BLT dip recipe…it looks like heaven!! I can only imagine it was a huge hit, especially with the men!

  23. Salima says:

  24. Birkley says:
