Friday we had a low key evening. I made a big pot of Paula Deen's French Onion Soup. It is always amazing! The recipe is under my recipes tab if you have never made it. I highly recommend it, it is cheap, easy and so tasty!
Saturday we had some pictures done for our Christmas Cards by my girl Julia- sneak peek to come later. But here is one shot of Sterling in his adorable outfit. We had to bribe him to cooperate with raisins so if you get one of our Christmas cards it will mostly likely have a box of raisins in it!
Later that day we had a birthday party for one of Sterling's friends Oliver. The kids got to go to the fire station and had so much fun. Not sure who loved it more Matt or Sterling! I'm not kidding Matt talked to the firefighters forever and was pretty eager to hop in the front seat!
Then I was off to a Bachelorette party for my dear friend, Alissa. We started with Champagne and pureed fresh strawberries- amazing. I highly recommend you try this instead of mimosas, such a great twist. My sister in law pureed the strawberries in her juicer but I think you could use a blender too.
Then we headed to my favorite wine bar Bin 152.
They have an amazing wine list and the most delicious Cheese and Charcuterie plates. I was in heaven.
Somehow later on into the evening I ended up doing alot of these! I mean that's what Bachelorette Parties are all about right?? It was a good idea until the next morning....
We had such a fun time and I was super happy to have my sister in town to hang with us. She is always my partner in crime!
I will leave y'all one with one OOTD from this weekend. Ladies if you don't have a Tory Burch Cardigan you need one. I have one in brown and red and they are my favorite sweaters. So versatile and always look chic!
Tory Burch Cardigan, JCrew Talia Blouse, Seven "The Skinny" Black Jeans, Micheal Kors Pumps
Oh, and thanks to the time change this nugget has woken up at 5:30 the past two days. I was not a happy Mommy this morning! But it is hard to stay angry at this sweet face. Any suggestions on getting kids adjusted to the time change are welcome!
