Thoughts For Friday

This past weekend I turned 39. Entering my last year of my thirties terrifies me a little but also I have to say I love my 30’s! I have learned so much about myself and grown and evolved as a person. Here is to embracing my last year of my 30’s and having my best year yet!

We did a really fun wine tasting the night before my birthday that my neighbor Rick hosted!

I was in charge of the charcuterie my speciality.

My sweet parents who stayed in town to make my birthday extra special. I love them so much and I am so incredibly grateful for everything they do for me and my kids!

Gotta love the selfie my Dad took of us all.

I took the kids to Beaufort for a few days for Spring Break and we had the best time. If you guys are interested I can do a full post on beaufort and where we stayed and ate but wasn’t sure how many people would want to see that.

I can’t get enough of this picture love it so much! Robes are by The Loomia, they come in several colors and are so soft!

I can’t quit this Amazon dress I now have 3 colors. It is under $30 and looks way more expensive.

I attended a really fun lunch for the launch of Patricia Nash’s new handbag line.

I bought this travel kit right before the Bahamas and just love it. It is so spacious for toiletries.

When two of my favorite foods collide tacos + pizza. And that is doritos crumbled on top.

I just started Grace and Frankie on Netflix and I am loving it. Such a funny show.

Have a great weekend.

    Hi Happy Birthday! Just wondering if you are considering changing the name of your blog now that your children are getting older. Always enjoy your recipes/food styling and have actually made a few of them and they were excellent! Maybe a name that encompasses your talent in the culinary arts?
    Be well!

    Happy Belated! Question- where is Caycee? She has been on a very long hiatus!

    • Kris says:

      I have been wondering the same thing. Hope that she is okay? I know it really isn’t your place to say, but I think her readers are very concerned about her.

    Yes please do a post about Beaufort! We live in Columbia, SC and on the bucket list. We have two boys – 4 and 16 months and it might be a nice weekend getaway.
    I’m actually eating your sausage, kale, zucchini quiche dish – love your recipes and blog! Happy birthday!
