I hope everyone had a fabulous Mothers Day whether you are a mom yourself or were celebrating with your mom. I was lucky enough to be in Charlotte for the weekend so I actually got to the spend the day with my mom! It was a special day.
I tried out a new juice recipe that is amazing. After all the crap we ate last weekend I told Matt we needed some green juice each day to start our day off right. I swear I have more energy the days I drink my green juice- may just be in my head but either way its extra energy!
We decided to add a jalapeno in per my sisters suggestion, she had just finished a juice cleanse and loved the jalapeno juice. It gave the juice a perfect spice.
Just juice kale + spinach + 1 organic Fuji apple + 1 baby cucumber + 1 lemon + 1 inch piece of ginger peeled + 1 jalapeno seeded and sliced in halve
I have been wearing my tassel necklace from Furbish Studio nonstop. I love it.
Miss Frances Moon finally rolled over. Not gonna lie I was starting to get worried since we are approaching the 6 month mark, but she finally did it!
We celebrated my soon to be third nephew this weekend in Charlotte with a baby shower for my sister in law. I am so excited for my brother and her. They will be such awesome parents!
We snapped this picture before we left of me, my mom, and sister.
We didn’t plan to all wear animal prints but somehow we did- great minds think alike.
Here we are with my sister in law who is the cutest pregnant person ever.
I enjoyed my first martini since before I was pregnant. My dad makes the absolute best martinis and he hand stuffs the blue cheese olives. Pure heaven I tell you!
I admired my mom’s peony bushes all weekend. It has inspired me to want
to plant my own- anyone know if they will survive and thrive in
Charleston like they do in Charlotte?
Crazy story. This week marks the one year anniversary of my grandfather’s death. You may remember the story of how my mom found a frog in her kitchen the day after his funeral. Well she has not seen a frog again until this weekend Sterling spotted one on their patio. It looks exactly like the frog she saw on her table a year ago. We all knew it was grandfather back to tell us he was OK (and probably sneak a peek at Frances too since he never got to meet her) we were all laughing and in tears.
Sterling was so excited. and yes those are Christmas decorations we cleaned out from my grandfathers house he wanted to keep. I think that was probably the original elf on the shelf. Christmas in May!
Mothers Day we went to church which was nice but chaos with the three kids!
Then my dad took us all out to brunch to celebrate Mothers Day. I had the most amazing lobster Cobb salad- I am still thinking about it. It was from McCormick and Schmicks, and actually all our meals were excellent.
Ended the day thankful to spend it with these two precious babies.
I am one lucky Mama.
Have a great week!
