Scenes From Our Weekend

Happy Monday!  Thank you all for all the awesome comments from my post Friday!  I felt a little vulnerable sharing all that stuff but loved reading every single comment I got!  You know how to make a girl feel loved on her Birthday.  Today marks my first day as a 34 year old and I am ready to embrace this age and have a fantastic year!

I have been wanting to go do a tasting at the Firefly Distillery forever and finally talked Matt into going for my Birthday weekend.  We went with Caycee and Todd and had the best time.  They do vodka and wine tastings for only $6.  It was fun to taste the different vodkas and wine they make out there and see where it was made.  Such a fun thing to do if you are a local.

Afterwards we all bought a bottle of wine and sat outside and enjoyed it!  It really is gorgeous out there!

Afterwards we hit the Fat Hen for the most delish jalapeno margaritas, fried pickles and burgers.

My mom and sister surprised me with a camera for my Birthday.  I seriously use my iphone for all my pictures.  I never wanted to invest in a big camera because I knew I wouldn’t take it anywhere with me.  This camera is small, has incredible zoom features and you can upload right to instgram, fb and the web straight from the camera.  It kicks ass.  A great camera if you are looking for a new one.

The weather was so warm this weekend I was finally able to wear my new Lauren Lail Library Josie Shorts.  Her shorts are my favorite because they are comfy and can be dressed up or down!  I love the new floral pattern this year.


 The kids were so adorable this weekend.  I love now that Frances is getting older she recognizes Sterling and just loves him so much.   She gazes at him and just giggles when he talks it melts my heart.


My in-laws gave me a vase of the prettiest azaleas from their yard.  I just love azaleas.

Ended the weekend with alot of snuggles with these two.

Have a fantastic week!

    Happy birthday!! Love the idea of that camera. I hardly ever bring out my "nice" camera because of how convenient taking photos are on my phone these days! 🙂

    Happy birthday Natalie! I loved reading your 34 things, and your wine tasting looked so fun. You will definitely have to get out to California soon to try it! My husband and I just did Carmel and it was great!

    Happy birthday!!! I so enjoyed reading your '34 things' post. I'd always wondered about Frances' second name…if Moon (which I just love, btw) was a family name – and it turns out it kinda IS in a very special way. Glad you enjoyed your birthday weekend with your beautiful family :-)'

    Happy Birthday! Would you mind doing a post on the camera at some point? I am curious to see the difference between your iPhone photos and the camera's pics. In the same boat; I really want a nice camera but doubt I will lug around a big one with large lens. Thanks!
