Thoughts For Thursday

Mar 31, 2016

I can’t believe today is the last day of March! This year already seems to be flying by faster than the rest.

We have been enjoying our Spring Break week in Charlotte.  I jump at any chance to spend more time with my family especially my newest nephew, Rutledge. 

Sterling has especially loved holding him and it melts my heart.

How sweet is his little smile??

Wore my floral swing dress for happy hour one night.    It is a great causal dress made out of thick cotton.  I like that it is loose and not clingy at all.  It also comes in a gorgeous dark blue color.  I am wearing a size XS, runs on the large side.  Would also work while pregnant.

We have been spending a lot of time at Southwark Mall, my favorite spot when I am back in Charlotte.  Enjoying Chick Fila in the food court.  I so wish Charleston had a good mall.

I have been reading Jennifer Weiner’s book, All Fall Down and I am totally sucked into it.  It is about a woman addicted to painkillers.  I always like Jennifer Weiner’s book because all the characters are always so relatable.  She is such a fantastic writer.

 I used a birthday gift card for this blouse, currently 40% off.

I really liked the floral print and smocked style.

We all love Mexican Street corn and make it every taco night.  I came across these 2 recipes on Pinterest and can’t wait to try them.

Mexican Street Corn Zucchini

Mexican Street Corn Nachos

We celebrated my birthday while I was home with a lemon raspberry cake from Reids that was amazing!  We usually get their caramel cake but I sampled this lemon one and loved it.

The kids having a picnic in their “secret garden” aka the area where the picked all the flowers off my mom’s bushes.

I stopped in JCrew this week and picked up the best tee shirt.  These are so super soft and come in so many gorgeous colors.

Have a great Thursday!
