Scenes From Our Weekend

Jan 18, 2016

Happy MLK Day.  So thankful for all that Martin Luther King Jr did for our nation.  The kids are out of school today so we are off to the gym and then downtown to play around.

I mentioned Friday but the kids and I headed to Charlotte this weekend to meet my new nephew Rutledge.  Since they were out of school Thursday and Friday it was the perfect long weekend to get away!  I am always so sad when I have to leave my family but thankful we are only a few hours away.

My mom had recently bought a coffee table at Slate Interiors so we stopped in to browse.  I swear I wanted everything I saw.  So much gorgeous eye candy for the home. I really want to find a spot for those hot pink chairs.

I spent a lot of time cuddling with sweet Rutledge.   It sure made me miss having a newborn but not the sleepless nights!

My other nephew Finley was such a ham trying to fit in the Moses basket.

No trip to Charlotte is complete without a trip to SouthPark Mall.  Why oh why doesn’t Charleston have a good mall??  The shopping is so much better there.  I snagged these two beauties.  And yes I know it is only January but I am over Winter clothes and dreaming of Spring.

The Topshop Dress is so cute on, I love the drape front detail.  I had been eyeing the RM purse online and was so happy to see it in person, the perfect Summer purse!

The kids always love Nordstrom because of the fish tank.  They both found cute winter hats on super sale.

Enjoyed one of my Dad’s delicious martinis for Happy Hour!

My blouse is 40% off right now, making it only $36 šŸ™‚

All the cousins minus Rutledge chilling. Maxton was clearly overwhelmed with the older crew!

On Sunday we saw snow!  Charlotte had a few snow flurries in the morning and Sterling said ” See Mom wishes really do come true.  I wished for snow last night and its snowing. You should make a wish it will come true, but don’t wish for a fire breathing dragon that will ruin the town.”

Then we cheered on the Panthers to victory!

Serena and Lily is having a huge sale right now, most of the items pictured below are 70% off.  You can also use code NEWLOOKS to take an additional 20% off all bedding and bath times even ones on sale.  I just ordered the star baskets! You can view the sale HERE and shop my favorites below.

!function(d,s,id){var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? ‘http’ : ‘https’;if(!d.getElementById(id)) {e = d.createElement(s); = id;e.src = p + ‘://’ + ‘’ + ‘/js/lookbook.js’;d.body.appendChild(e);}if(typeof(window.__lookbook) === ‘object’) if(d.readyState === ‘complete’) {window.__lookbook.init();}}(document, ‘script’, ‘lookbook-script’);

    Hi there! I just love your blog, it always makes me happy. I mean to write every time your nephew, Maxton, is mentioned. We named our now 3 year old son Maxton also. I've never heard anyone else with the name. I love that your nephew has it!
