Scenes From Our Weekend

Oct 16, 2017

Happy Monday!  I have been battling a nasty cold all weekend.  Tis the season I guess.  I am drinking my hot lemon ginger water as I type hoping to feel better soon!  Since I didn’t feel well yesterday I spent most of the day at home and decided to tackle some projects.  My cookbooks had been spread out all over the house so I cleaned some out and organized them all in one spot.  Clearly, I am a cookbook hoarder.  I seriously love cookbooks though they make me so happy.  It is so nice to have them all in one spot now.  Would you guys be interested in a round up of maybe my top 10 favorite/ most used cookbooks?

Friday night Sterling and I had a Mommy/son date night.  I am wearing this Dress. I bought it a few years and its always a favorite for this in between weather.  It is now out in a really pretty pink and new black version as well.

Sterling wanted to eat at Smokey Oak and it was really good.  Their nachos were amazing.


Back home snuggled up in my new favorite loungewear.  This top and pants are the softest thing ever.  They also come in a black version. I am wearing a small in the top and medium in pants for sizing reference.

Saturday morning we did brunch at 3 Little Birds. Always a local favorite!

Saturday’s Outfit- I wear this tee shirt so often.  I now have 4 colors, the fit is so good and it is only $19.

Frances Moon went to a Princess Birthday party at Teacups + Trucks.  It was the cutest party ever.  She got a mani/pedi and was in heaven.  Plus she got to wear her rainbow unicorn outfit.

How adorable are these unicorn cupcakes??  Frances already told me she wants a unicorn party just like Maddie’s for her birthday next month!

The weather was so gorgeous so we hit up the park after the birthday party.  Sterling snapped this picture and makes me laugh because I am about to break the see saw.

Sunday morning we hit up Krispy Creme.

It was slightly chilly so I busted out a sweater for our Starbucks/Krispy Kreme run. By the way if you haven’t tried the bacon cheese egg bites at Starbucks they are a must!

Sweater | Tee Shirt | Leggings | Shoes

Did a little grocery shopping and put Sterling to work bagging our groceries.  He loved it and said when can I work here for real?

I made a batch of Kitchen Sink Pasta Salad for this week.  I used this recipe but added in small mozzarella balls and parsley.

Snuggle Sunday.  I felt pretty bad all day yesterday so the kids and I snuggled and watched Hocus Pocus.

Lastly I wanted to share this lip combo I am loving.  The lipstick and gloss are the perfect nude lip! The lipstick is a special holiday edition so get it while you can!  I am obsessed with it!

Have a great Monday!  xo

    If you are feeling crummy you should make this soup – http://www.biggirlssmallkitchen.com/2009/03/cooking-for-one-weekday-detox.html – it’s miraculous. I also love her lemony kale salad. Feel better soon!
