I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend! Did you guys miss me Friday? I usually never skip a day blogging but I had friends coming in town and a CPR class that morning so I was crazy busy! We had a great weekend filled with lots of fun. 

My friend Melissa and her son Colin came in town to visit and we had a blast.  We were roommates in college and it is so fun to see our boys together now!  We always joke that Sterling and Colin look like they could be brothers.

Sterling has decided he no longer needs to wear clothes when he is outside.  It is becoming quite comical.  Our friends have started referring to him as “Naked Boy.”  Thinking it is probably a sign I should start potty training.  This is him at the beach weekend after stripping off all his clothes.

We took all the kids to the Yacht Club Saturday night and I got to catch up with some of my favorite ladies.

Cooked up my favorite Tomato Pie for dinner.  You can find the recipe under my recipes, tab it is amazing!  It will not disappoint, one of my favorite meals.

My C&C California Colorblock Maxi dress came in the mail and I love it.  It is so soft and long enough for me which is always a plus!  I highly recommend it, you know how much I love a good maxi dress!

I hit up JCrew on Monday to do a few returns and stalk the necklace my friend Weezie was wearing this weekend (you can see it in the picture above).  It was my lucky day because I got a credit and it was on sale, so this beauty came home with me!  It looks even better on!  For some weird reason it was not on sale online just in the actual store.

Bauble Cascade Necklace

And a big thank you to JCrew for the giant lollipop they gave my little man so I could look around.  He was a hot mess afterwards but it kept him happy for awhile!

I ended my weekend with some Prosecco and Magazines.  If you are not drinking Cupcake Prosecco you should be it.  It is delish for the price.  I added fresh sliced cucumber and mint in my drink.  And the new House Beautiful is good, real good!

Lastly, while browsing Pinterest last night, I came across this recipe for a homemade CrunchWrap Supreme.  Tell me I am not the only one with a strong love for Taco Bell.  I don’t eat Taco Bell often but I freaking love it.  I will so be making these Crunchwraps.  Recipe Via
