Scenes From Our Weekend

Feb 22, 2016

The weather here was so nice all weekend.  It made me excited for Spring and spending more time outdoors.  Vitamin D is good for the soul,  I swear I felt happier just having some warm weather and the sun!  My parents got in town Thursday and my sister and brother in law got here yesterday so we had lots of family time!

Thursday night I went to a party at Finicky Filly celebrating The Brown Box Club. Then afterwards we had dinner at Muse.

Friday my mom and I ran some errands- aka shopped at TJMaxx and Homegoods and then we had a small family birthday celebration for Sterling.  I made Feta Artichoke dip one of my favorites.

I mentioned before that my next door neighbors frequently take my pictures for my blog- if you need photos they are awesome to work with!  They stopped by to wish Sterling a Happy Birthday Friday.  This is Gary marveling over my giant rose pour and Rick with Frances. I could not ask for better neighbors! You can check out their photography site here.

Saturday night we went out to dinner with some of our favorite couples.  Our friends booked all 16 seats at R Kitchen and we had the best time.

I am kind of obsessed with the white blouse I am wearing.  I like that it is off shoulder but with straps and I love the detail around the top. I am wearing a size small for sizing reference.

The dishes at R Kitchen are always so fresh and innovative. This was my second time dining here and I loved every single dish again.   This sashimi was made with fish caught earlier that day.

We had a blast.  I love the intimate atmosphere.  The perfect spot to catch up with our friends. 

Sunday we spent the day with my sister and my nephews.  I love getting my newborn fix with Rutledge:) As you can tell Frances hates it when I hold another baby, she gets so jealous.  She likes to be the baby:)

I am wearing an Equipment Dress, I will be featuring it tomorrow on the blog, along with some looks for the guys too!

Today only Beauty Counter is offering a free angled brush with any purchase of their blush duos.  The angled brush is awesome for applying bronzers and blush. 

I love the Tawny/Whisper Duo it is the perfect bronzer/highlighter! 


I have mentioned on here before how much I love my Essential oils.  Well for the month of February they are offering 10% off all starter kits.  If you are thinking about trying the oils it is a great time to and take advantage of the discount.  With all the germs and viruses going around I have been running our diffuser like crazy!  If you are interested you can email my friend Nicola  She is a nurse and also a rep for YL Oils.

I also wanted to share one of my favorite Clover Canyon prints was just reduced to 40%.   I have the long sleeve dress in this same print which is now sold out but love these two versions.

    I love the off the shoulder blouse with the necklace on you! So chic! It looks like Sterling is getting a little glee from you holding the adorable Rutledge and looking at Frances! lol šŸ™‚

    Gary is so nice! I used to work with him when he was at the Wine Shop (my office was right above the shop!). I want to try R Kitchen. That green necklace is really pretty. Hope Sterling had a fab birthday week.

  4. I love the green necklace you wore on Saturday night! Having the whole restaurant to yourself sounds so fun!

  5. That white blouse is everything!!! Love the straps + the off the shoulder, adding that to my warmer weather wish list. That restaurant looks delish too, I'm a sucker for sashimi. Have a great week!
