Scenes From Our Weekend

Aug 24, 2015

This weekend flew by.  How is it possible we only have one weekend left in August?? Just crazy. This is a short week for us, as Matt and I leave for NYC Thursday. I am super exited to explore the city!

After school Friday the kids and I headed to Charlotte for the weekend.  Saturday was my nephew Maxton’s first birthday and we didn’t want to miss it!  I was so proud of Sterling for having such a great first week at kindergarten.

Joie Blouse | Jeans | Necklace

These 3 always love to be together.  Sterling and Finley both love the Minions.

One of my favorite parts of going home is the breakfasts my Dad always cooks us.  His pancakes are the best ever and he never skimps on bacon:)  It is such a treat to have someone else cook for you!

Saturday we celebrated my sweet nephew, Maxton’s first Birthday.  Sometimes I still can’t believe my little brother is a dad!  He will forever be like 16 in my mind.

My mom and dad with the birthday boy.

They had food truck come which I thought was the most genius idea.  I may try and do this for Sterling’s next birthday.  It was a cheeseburger and french fry food truck- if you live in Charlotte they were awesome.

Frances got soaked at the water table- hence no dress:)

What I wore:

Topshop Dress | Twine and Twig Necklace | Joie Sandals

Frances Moon looking adorable before the party and before getting soaked.  She loves to accessorize with a necklace.

Tea Dress | Little Twine and Twig Necklace

Got back in town in time for happy hour with Matt.  Jalapeno Margarita + Pizza was the perfect end to our weekend. For those who requested the margarita recipe:

Jalapeno Margaritas (makes 2 )

4 oz tequila

2 limes juiced

about 1-2 tablespoons honey or agave nectar

1 jalapeno sliced

place all in shaker with ice and shake up

Have a great start to your week!
