Scenes From Our Weekend

Nov 9, 2015

Dear Monday.  I wish it was Friday again.  This weekend flew by.  I am off to get a cavity filled this morning and dreading it.  It is my first cavity in probably 15 years.  I have only had one other cavity before.  I hate needles and the numbing aspect most off all. Wish me luck!

We had a fairly low key weekend.

Thursday night I went out to dinner with some girlfriends.  We ate at The Grocery and I forgot how amazing that place is.  Everything we had was delicious.  If you go definitely try the broccoli, okra and Churros for dessert.

Wearing Joie Dress (40% off)

I found a new sandwich I love at East Bay Deli.  The Carolina.  It is turkey, cheese, sprouts, tomato, bacon + avocado and so good.

Frances Moon looked so adorable I had to snap a picture.

Friday night we enjoyed an early happy hour at the Yacht Club.  The sun finally came out Friday afternoon after several days of rain and gloom.

My little family.

Teaching Sterling how to make a wish on a dandelion.

Miss attitude.  I swear the terrible twos are starting early here. Frances Moon has temper tantrums all the time now.

Saturday morning we enjoyed brunch at our favorite spot The Variety Store.

Another view of the dress.   I wore mine during the day with flip flops but it is also cute styled with booties too.

The kids love to go see this dog after we eat at The Variety Store.  He is always chilling near the docks.

Sunday the kids and I hit up the grocery store bright and early and we found the cutest Christmas hats at Publix.

The weather got chilly and rainy again on Sunday, so it was perfect to bust out my new sweater.  I bought this a few weeks ago and had been waiting for colder weather to wear it.

 I love the swing style and pockets. I am in a size XS.

Sunday Matt took Sterling to the Stringray Hockey game and Frances Moon and I want to Baptism celebration for baby Ellis.

He is quite possibly the sweetest baby ever.

How beautiful is sweet Ellis??

I love this picture of Frances and Taylor I snapped.  They are such good friends already just like their Mamas.

Ended our rainy Sunday night with some delicious French Onion Soup with Gruyere Croutons.

I use this Tyler Florence Recipe it is really good.

Have a great week.
