Hello Monday | Randoms

Aug 31, 2015

Happy Monday!   

We just got back from a really fun weekend in New York.  Later this week I will share all the details of our trip including where we ate and what we did.  We had such an amazing time in the city.  We got back late yesterday afternoon and I didn’t have time to upload and organize all my photos so stayed tuned for a NYC post coming soon.

One of our good friends let us stay in his apartment for the weekend in NYC.  This was our view every night.  I just love the energy of the city.

Wanted to share my maxi dress I am wearing here was just reduced | Joie Maxi Dress 

also on sale here but only a few sizes left

Two of our dining room chairs arrived last week.  The other 4 are back ordered but I am so excited where the space is going!

How cute are Frances and her cousin Drew??  Love that they are so close in age.  I am also loving her red converse shoes from Rack Room.  They are her favorite shoes, she brings them to me everyday and says ” shoes Mama”

This Tory Burch Dress is a recent purchase I am loving.  It is cotton and such a great fit.  I love that you can dress it up or down. I am wearing a size small for reference.

Speaking of Tory Burch a ton of stuff just got marked down on her site.  

 These are some of my favorite Summer sandals. I did find they ran on the small side so I recommend ordering a half size up.

Lots of great deals.  50% off and more.  Scroll thru to see my favorites.

 Someone at school told Sterling about putting cucumbers on his eyes and now he always wants to do it after school.  It trips me out.

New favorite cookies, Grey Ghost Bakery Cookies.  They are a local shop here in Charleston  I loved the lemon sugar and chocolate cayenne.  I like that are individually wrapped with two small cookies, the perfect serving size.

Lately I have been cactus obsessed. I picked up this round one at Lowes the other day and plan to use it in the middle of our doing room table.   

Have a great week.

    Those cookies were in my Treatsie box this month and I have been meaning to find where I can order them. Thanks!
