Scenes From Our Weekend

Mar 14, 2016

I have such a love hate relationship with daylight savings time.  I love the extra hour at night but man I hate getting up while it is still dark out!  This weekend we were blessed with gorgeous weather again.  I have to say it makes me excited for Summer and the extra time outdoors. 

Friday while the kids were in school, I hit up the outlets.  I never really find anything for myself there but I wanted to get the kids some pjs, underwear and socks.  Nothing too exciting.  Since I was already in North Charleston we decided to eat lunch at Basico.  I had only been here once before.  I ordered the Basico bowl with half chorizo half chicken and it was so delicious!

Friday night we did a sleepover with my friend Ashley and her girls.  We like to do this every few months.  Us ladies stay up and chat and the kids have so much fun!

I am wearing Rebecca Taylor Blouse,  it is sold out but this style is the same.

We enjoyed dirty martinis and ordered pizza and the kid’s watched Billy Madison.  Fun for everyone:)

Saturday morning we strolled the marina.  Sterling always loves looking at the boats. 

and notice he and Effie insisted on trading shoes:)

Then we went to Park Cafe for breakfast. I dream about their avocado and creamy kale toast.

I love this picture of Sterling.  He can never have enough jelly. 

Saturday afternoon the kids insisted they wanted to put on their bathing suits and get in the water.  There is a park near our house that has small beach area the kids love.  I put my feet in the water and it was COLD but it clearly didn’t phase them! 

I am usually not one for matching outfits but I could not resist these leaf print swimsuits from The Beaufort Bonnet Company.

The kids said they wanted tacos for dinner that night so we switched things up from our usual and made fried flounder tacos with pineapple jalapeño relish. They were off the hook good.

Favorite outfit over the weekend.

The dress runs on the large side, I have an XS.

Sunday on the way to church I snapped this picture of the kids.  Pretty much sums up their personalities.

I wore this gorgeous Hyla Dewitt Necklace to church. I have fun post coming next week featuring her jewelry and a discount code! The dress I am wearing is old but this one is very similar.

Sunday night we went to the Yacht Club for Happy Hour.  We were happy to have the extra hour of light!

Sterling was so excited about the dead fish bones he found and we promptly made him was his hands!  He did manage to find all these shark’s teeth which he was super pumped about.  and it slightly terrified me- haha!

Have an awesome week!

    I used to read your blog when my little girl and Sterling were just babies, then I took a blogging break for awhile. It's crazy to see how much Sterling has grown and changed! No more baby, he is a full blown little boy!!
