Scenes From Our Weekend

Mar 10, 2014

Can I just say it is amazing what a weekend with good sunny weather does for the soul.  All the rain and cold here was putting me in a serious funk.  I feel rejuvenated!  

We had such a great weekend.

My parents were down here for the food and wine festival so I got to spend some time with them which I always love.

Sterling loves his Big Poppie!

My mom brought a bottle of the most delish Chardonnay- I really recommend it!

Friday night we ordered pizza- we really do this every Friday.  This week we tried out a new pizza, The BLT Pizza.  It was sooo good!  Locals it was from Pasianos our favorite pizza place on James Island.

Frances and Sterling have been so sweet together lately.  Melts my heart.

Saturday the weather was so awesome I took the kids for a picnic at Normandy Farms.  Sterling is like,  really mom I am trying to eat put the camera down.

We got our new shipment of Honest Diapers and I m pretty sure these leopard ones are my favorite!

Saturday we had a couples dinner out to celebrate all the birthdays in March (including mine)!

I was pumped to fit back in my regular jeans!

My jeans are old but the current Rag and Bone version can be found HERE.

I have been obsessed with distressed denim lately!

Rag and Bone Skinny Jeans also here in lighter wash |Shirt is old Theory | Necklace Christina Jervey | Shoes


I also carried my favorite Gigi New York Clutch!

The Uber clutch is amazing, it is all I carry these days.  It is awesome because you can fit so much in it!


We had the best time with our friends.  A great way to celebrate my upcoming birthday!

Sunday I went on my first run in basically a year.  It is time to tighten this body up!  It was painful but also felt so good!

Then we went on a boat ride the weather was just amazing!  It was Frances Moons first boat ride and she loved and yes she has a life jacket we were docked this was right before we took off:)

It was a fantastic week!

  1. We love Paisanos! I wish I could convince my husband to let us order a blt pizza. He's a typical man and wants meat meat and more meat! It was such a great weekend! So glad the rain finally left us. I got the Uber clutch when Gigi had their big sale and I can't wait to finally use it this weekend!
