Scenes From our Spring Break

Happy Monday Friends!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  We have been in Charlotte for the last week and it has been glorious.   Sometimes it is so nice to have a change of scenery.  Here is a little peak at our Spring Break.

We got in town to await the birth of my nephew.  This is my sister two days before she gave birth, she looks amazing right??

While I was home Mom and I did what we love best, shopping.  We found some great deals at The Gap, all on Super sale!  You can 15% off everything online with code GAPSTYLE.

{ Neon Stripped Tote |  Stripped Tee |  Blue Tunic Dress }

The next day my sister went into labor.  I have to admit I was a bit envious of her labor.  I was in labor for 32 long hours.  She arrived at the hospital at 8am and had her baby at noon.  A super fast delivery right?  and she looked amazing afterwards.  Even my dad joked how rough I looked post birth compared to her!  I cried the second I met my nephew- who they named Finley Wilburn Powell.  I was so overcome with joy.  I was filled with so much emotion seeing my sister become a mom and welcome this perfect baby into our lives.  Witnessing a newborn enter the world reminds you there is a God and babies are such miracles.  I am such a proud aunt and filled with so much love for this sweet fella. (No pictures of my sister she didn’t want hospital pics of her floating around the internet).

We decided to surprise my sister with some of her favorite cake.  It is the caramel cake from Reids.  If you live in Charlotte you must try it.  It is hands down the best cake I have ever tasted.  It is 13 layers of icing, enough said!

I rocked my new Baublebar necklace alot.  It is the perfect statement necklace to wear with a tee!

I also wore my Camilla and Marc Dress from Social Dress shop.  It is on major sale,  somebody needs to snag the last ones left.  I got so many compliments all day!  I have been living in it since I got it.  It is the perfect Summer Dress and so comfortable!

Sunday we hit up Freedom Park.  I forgot what a great park it was.  Sterling absolutely loved it!

We definitely had a great and relaxing Spring Break!  Cheers to Monday!

    What a beautiful baby!! Your sister is so lucky. That was a short labor!! Just holding a newborn I have a hard time keeping it together. I can't imagine if it were my sister's child…

    I really wanted the GAP tote. I might still have to get it. 🙂

    You are SO right about witnessing a birth and being reminded that God is great and babies are perfect miracles. I am doing an OB rotation right now and am in awe each and every delivery I am in on. It is such an incredible thing. How exciting for your sister and family!
