Scenes From Our Weekend

Nov 11, 2013

How was everyone’s weekends? Mine was busy and fun! I am trying to stay busy and forget about the fact that it is looming over my head I soon have to push a baby out.

My parents came in town for one last visit before baby girl comes.  I just love having them here.  I of course put my dad to work and mom and I did some Christmas shopping.

Friday night they took us out to eat at The Lot one of my favorite restaurants on James Island.

I snapped this picture right before dinner, look at the size of that belly!

Me and my rents.

Outfit details if curious:

Rebecca Taylor Tie Dye Maxi Dress | Vince Leather Coat

 Me and my boys enjoying one of our last weekends as a threesome.

Dinner at The Lot was amazing, two of our favorites,  the Market Plate and stuffed Pumpkin Blossoms.  We also had a kale soup that was incredible!

Saturday was project nursery day, we are finally done with everything.  My dad helped me install these awesome star decals from Urban Walls– more details coming soon.  My friend Brook is coming over today to snap nursery pictures so I hope to be able to show you guys the finished room very soon!

Shopping wise I finally snagged this 10 Crosby Derek Lam Dress I have been stalking forever on major sale.  Can’t wait to wear her post baby.

Available HERE, HERE

Took long walks both days trying to get this baby to come out.  I think she has dropped some my belly is lower.

Sunday night we made homemade Big Macs that were incredible.   They were super easy, happy to share our recipe if peeps are interested!

Have a great Monday!
