Weekend Happenings

Can ya’ll believe Christmas Eve is two weeks from today?  Pure craziness I tell you. 

Matt’s best friend from Charlotte and his fiance stayed with us for the weekend and we had such a great time.   She is a wine rep (hello dream job) so we drank some fabulous wine all weekend.  We started Friday night off with a bottle of Tattinger Champagne and it was amazing.  I may never drink the cheap stuff again.  I have been spoiled, thank you Alice.

Saturday we took Sterling to see Santa at the Yacht Club.  My child does not like Santa.  Check out his face- pretty priceless.  I think it is the beard, he does not like men with beards.  And this Santa’s beard was huge and obviously fake.

Here is our picture from last year.  We are starting to build a pretty impressive collection of I hate Santa pictures.

Somehow the past two years I have been roped into to sitting on Santa’s lap.  Santa this year was extra frisky.  He was insistent I sit on his lap too and then he proceeded to rub my back.  Akward…..

This is us having a moment.  I should have told him what I really want for Christmas is a Goyard bag.

Saturday night we had a fabulous dinner out at High Cotton.  It had been years since I ate there and it did not disappoint.

 I rocked my Joie Dress again.  Telling you such a perfect LBD.

This is Matt’s standard face when he doesn’t want to take a picture.  Total cheeseball.

In other news did ya’ll see Serena and Lily is having 25% off everything online!!  Just use code SHIPTODAY25

 Thinking it is a sign I need to order these things I have been eyeing.
{Coro Glasses, Nova Napkins,  Throw Pillows,  HA Kids Fish PJs, Bookends}

Have a great Monday.  I am off to the gym for the first time in weeks, seriously it has been awhile since this body got a good workout.  I have been way to busy eating, drinking,  and watching Lifetime Christmas movies to work out:)

    On the plus side it looks like the response to Santa has gotten slightly better over the years 😉 and we have some of this bookends in our little ones nursery and he looooves them! Definitely a must-have!

    Rose champagne is the BEST! Ivey is all talk. She had the exact same reaction that Sterling had last year. I haven't gotten the courage to take her yet this year.

    I received a large Goyard in black almost 2 years ago as a gift. Best gift ever. That bag has been around the block and back including being used as a book bag for grad school.

    You NEED one. 🙂

    I can't Christmas is that close either…where has this year gone?? Ahhhh!!! Those pictures of Sterling's face are priceless…I am sure he will just LOVE those pictures when he gets older! haha

    Let me know if you are coming to Charlotte!!!

    Oh my gosh, those photos of your son and Santa are great!! He'll love them when he gets older 🙂 Your LBD is amazing and I would die to be a wine rep. I think that would be a pretty much awesome job.

    I love the way that little kids bookshelf is styled!

    Just have to say again, love your blog! It's so refreshing knowing there are other moms out there with style, class, and creativity all while trying to control a two year old. Thanks for all the ideas and sharing your life with us! Your an inspiration!

    Ok Sterling is the cutest boy eva!! Am I weird that I think his opposition to Santa and pictures is cuter than him being into it? Obsessed!

    I need to pick me up some champagne ASAP! It's been awhile! And that kind, I'll just have to try! And love everything else, but I need to pick up those pjs for little L. So adorable!!
