Scenes From Our Weekend

Aug 8, 2016

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.  It is hard to believe Summer is coming to a close.  We have had a really good one though.

Friday the kids and I headed back from Charlotte bright and early.  I had a lunch date with my sister in law.  I wore this chambray dress perfect for traveling.  I love the silhouette.   I am wearing a size small, it runs slightly on the large side.

We had lunch at Bambu and after lunch I stopped in Bottles.  I have never been in there before and wow, what a great selection of wine.  I picked up a few new ones to try.

Friday night we had to take Frances to urgent care, I thought she broke her wrist.  Luckily after a few X-rays they told us nothing was broken.  We got home in time to catch a gorgeous sunset.

Our neighbors brought over the most delicious homemade egg rolls.  They had chicken, black beans, corn, onion, and spinach and were so tasty.

One of my favorite dresses from this Summer is back out in a new stripe color for Fall.  I found it when I bought my chambray dress in Charlotte.  Sizes sold out pretty quickly last time and a few are already sold out.  I am wearing a size 6 for reference.  I am usually a 4 in dresses but the 4 was a little snug at my hips.

Saturday morning the boys went fishing so I got to have some one on one time with Frances Moon.  We went to get doughnuts and to the Farmer’s Market.  I didn’t order a doughnut because I was trying to be good and I asked Frances for a bite of hers and this was the face I got- haha don’t mess with her food!

That afternoon we went boating with a few friends over to Morris Island.  I always love bringing fun snack on the boat.  I made pimento cheese sandwiches and Antipasto Roll-ups.  I will share that recipe Wednesday!

We had such a blast on the water. 

We even managed to get a few family photos of everyone together.

No one wanted to look at the camera.

Matt + I.  My bathing suit is now on sale.  It has the prettiest low back.  It runs TTS, I am wearing a medium.


Sunday we went to church and back to school shopping and then the pool!  My swimsuit and hat are on sale and I love the new pink/blush color of Tkees.

For dinner we made veggie plates.  I love this easy Summer Salad and it is only 4 ingredients.

Cherry Tomatoes + Fresh mozzarella balls + basil + pesto.   Also add a little salt and pepper:)

This wine was a favorite from Bottles.  Super light and refreshing. 

Have a great start to your week.  Sterling is doing tennis camp this week, it is his favorite camp.  This is our 3rd year doing it.   Looking forward to getting organized this week before school starts back!

  1. Hi Natalie- love your suit but I only see a S and M featured on Everything But Water, not numerical sizes! Can you confirm your size as I'll order the same? Thanks, Sarah
