Scenes From Our Weekend

Jan 11, 2016

Hello second Monday of 2016!  We had a really nice low key weekend.  I have been on a mission to clean out and organize every corner of our house.  This past week and weekend I focused on our kitchen and dining room.  I filled up the entire back of my car with old pots and pans, dishes and silverware we never used and hauled it to Goodwill.  It was such a good feeling and now when I open our drawers and cabinets they are so organized and I love it! 

Next up I am going to clean out everyone’s closets- I may do an instagram sale in the next week or two with clothes that I clean out.   My account there is @shopsnoopnattynat closet if you are interested in following.

I decided on some new silverware since our old silverware had been mysteriously disappearing. I am talking we were down to only 4 forks.  I have no idea what happened to it all.

I choose this gold set from Target and love it!! I honestly was surprised by the quality and it is so beautiful in person.  Such a great deal for the price.

I went for a run both days this weekend.  The cooler weather makes for such perfect running weather.

I thought this picture of the bridge covered in fog was so cool.

Snapped this picture of Sterling looking so grown up.  I love his style that is starting to emerge.

Frances Moon had her 2 year old check up this past week.  She is the size and height of a 3 year old.  Just like her Mama.  I was always big for my age:)

Speaking of Frances all she ever wants to sleep in and wear is her Paw Patrol night gown.  She is slightly obsessed.

Dreaming of warmer weather since it has been chilly here.  We are in the midst of booking our trip to the Caribbean again this Summer,  so resort wear is on my mind!

A little sneak peak at our new couch that was delivered this week.  We are starting to re-do our den and the couch was the first step.  Stay tuned for a fun make-over.  We have a new rug on the way and hoping to replace the mirror with a large abstract painting.  

Sunday we went to brunch at our favorite spot, The Variety shop.  I had the fried green tomato benedict and Matt had the shrimp hash browns.  They both were incredible.

The kids snuggled up with Daddy:)

I spent Sunday night on our new couch sipping rose watching the Golden Globes.  The tee shirt and leggings are my favorite lounge wear- Tomorrow I am planning a post featuring all my favorite loungewear! I am wearing a small in the leggings and tee shirt.

Here is another view of the tee and leggings on.

Two things I am really loving this New Year are my Bon Appetit Food Lovers Cleanse Cookbook and my Emily Ley Planner.  The cookbook is filled with so many amazing healthy recipes and I love the layout of the planner!

I always love watching the red carpet more than the actual awards.   These 4 ladies were some of the best dressed in my opinion.  I think Jennifer Lawerence’s look was my favorite.

Have a great Monday!
