Scenes From Our Weekend

Sep 14, 2015

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend.  The weather was amazing here this weekend.  Crisp and cool in the mornings and not too hot during the day.  It made me so excited for Fall.

Friday morning I witnessed the most beautiful scene.  Firefighters, police officers, and residents walking the bridge in honor of 9/11 victims.  It was so moving to see this 14 years later.  We will never forget that day.

Friday night we took it easy and grilled out.  We did Shrimp kabobs and I made Ina Garten’s Crispy Iceburg Salad.  The recipe is under my recipes tab.  The homemade dressing really makes the salad.  I love the crunch of the radishes and celery.  It is one of our favorite salads.

Saturday morning I headed out to the Wild Dunes Resort in Isle of Palms with two girlfriends.  Sometimes when you are a local you forget about awesome spots in your own town.  I am trying to make more of an effort to explore local spots.  

The interior of the resort was decorated perfectly.  I loved these lights.

The weather was overcast but we decided to eat lunch out at the Cabanas anyways.  It was not too hot and the Cabanas were covered so it was such a nice spot.  Living the good life lounging in our Cabana.

Rocking my new Jcrew Sunglasses

Sandals are 50% off in gold version

We ordered several different things from The Sea Island Grill to try off their menu and they all were awesome.  We had the lobster rolls, pimento cheese toasts and charcuterie board.  They were delicious and the presentation was gorgeous.

After lunch we all had massages.  The last time I had a massage was 2 years ago when I was hoping it would induce labor with Frances Moon.  Massages are such a treat.  It was the most relaxed I have been in forever.  I loved this cool rain wall in the spa.

Rows and rows of Oribe.  I love their products. 

My favorites are the Texturizing Spray and Hair Masque

After our massages we headed back to our cabana for a glass of wine and afternoon snack.  

Such a lovely time with these two!!

Saturday night I headed to Kiawah to spend the night with a few of my best friends.  I put my phone away and didn’t take one picture all night but we had a blast!  We ate at Jasmine Porch and had cocktails at the Sanctuary.  Such a dreamy spot.

Sunday I was so excited to see these cuties.

Breakfast at Bagel Nation has become a weekly thing for us.  We love that place.  Matt and I are hooked on the Denver Bagel.  Their homemade cream cheeses are all so good.  My favorites are the Veggie, Spanish Olive, and Jalapeno Cheddar.

I have to share this picture of Frances Moon with her baby doll.  She takes it everywhere, it is so sweet.

Have a great Monday!
