Scenes From Our Weekend

I met my Mom Thursday in Columbia so she could take Sterling for the weekend.  Let me tell you it was a long weekend without my little nugget and I missed him like crazy.  Mom and I did a little shopping in Columbia because that is what we do best.  I found this great silver pumpkin for our front porch.  Nothing wrong with a fake pumpkin:)

I made the Compost Cookies featured on Glitter Guide last week.  Wowza, they were good.  I loved the potato chips in them but next time I may leave out the caramel rice cakes I didn’t like the consistency they made the cookies.  But I loved the salty sweet combo.

Friday I worked on cleaning and organizing Sterling’s Room.  And I finally took pictures so I will reveal his big boy room this week:)  It is much easier to photgraph a room without a two year old throwing toys everywhere!  Here is one more teaser- how adorable are the whale sheets from PB?

Friday Night we went to the best Halloween Party at my girl Caycee’s house. We had so much fun. I went as a Hippie and Matt went as a Hot Dog.  My dress was true vintage,  it was my mom’s from when she was in college, I love that I have so many of her old clothes.

 Here are a few shots from the party….

We had such a fun time, Caycee always throws the best parties.  Saturday we slept in and enjoyed a leisure kid free lunch.  We tried out a new spot on James Island called the Sloppy Cow.  I loved my Black Bean burger, but Matt had mixed feelings about his stuffed Spicy Burger.  I would still eat there again.

After lunch Matt and I went a long boat ride for the rest of the afternoon.  It was the perfect weather for a boat ride and since we had no baby with us we could take our time and enjoy ourselves.  I caught up on a stack of magazines I had been wanting to read and enjoyed some delicious vino!

Sunday I was thrilled to be reunited with my little man.  It was crazy how much I missed that sweet face!

Happy Monday Dolls!

    It's crazy how we pray for a break and then miss them like crazy when we get one! It is nearly impossible to take get a room clean and tidy and take pictures with kids under your roof. Can't wait to see his room!

    Love your hippie costume dress! You could definitely get away with wearing it in a non-costume way, looks Lilly-esque.
