Life Lately

I tried out two new food spots this week, Callies Hot Little Biscuit and Jeni’s Ice Cream.  Both were awesome.  I am a long time fan of Carrie who created Callie’s biscuits.  I love her cookbook, biscuits, and pimento cheese in a major way.  I was so excited for this little spot to open. I had the chive and cheese biscuits with country ham- freaking amazing!!  You must stop and try the biscuits.   Oh and pick up some of her Dilly dip as well, it is such a tasty dip.

I took the kids to Jeni’s Ice Cream and was really impressed.  I am not even a big ice cream fan but this ice cream was so innovative and delicious.  I had the Brown Butter Almond Brittle, it was drool worthy.

 Sterling had the Lavender Wildberry and I swear it tasted like fruit loops.

I am basically obsessed with this top Blair From Atlantic Pacific is wearing.  But then again does anything she wear look bad?  

of course it sold out, but the dress version is still available and how awesome is it?  The price is not bad either.

 As you know I have really gotten into my morning runs.  I go every other day and it such a great way to start my day.  In order to track my miles and calories burned I ordered a GPS watch and I am loving it!!  It keeps track of my runs, miles, pace per mile, and calories.  If you are a runner I really love this watch.

My view yesterday on my run, not too shabby!

Last weekend at the Farmers Market I picked up some fresh pasta.  I buy the Ravioli all the time, but not the pastas.  I bought a basil spaghetti and it was amazing.  I roasted my cherry tomatoes and served them over the pasta with olive oil, fresh basil, and Parmesan cheese.  Super easy, fresh and delicious.

  I took the kids to the small beach near our house Sunday while Matt worked.  I love how close we live to the beach.

I found these shoes at Old Navy for, a whooping $18.  I swear they look just like a Joie Pair I wanted for $300.  The bone color is the perfect nude color.

Last night I hosted a blogger event with Caycee and Sidney from EclecticEclectic is one of my favorite home shops in town.  Sidney carries the coolest stuff.  Case and point:

Cool lamps and artwork

I loved this twin bed set up, so cute for a little boys room.

I loved every single piece of artwork.

Me, Caycee, and Sidney the owner.  If you live in Charleston you must check out her shop!

Oh and Ryan Gosling was there too, don’t be jealous.  We were obviously over excited.

I wore my Pink Stitch Maxi Dress from Scout and Molly’s in Charlotte + Candy Shop Vintage Rice Beads.

    I love my Garmin GPS watch!! I can't run without it. Not so much for the calories I'm burning (although it's nice to have a number), but for the mileage. I also love that turquoise dress on you!

    Your running view aint too shabby! I have an old garmin watch that is no where near as cute as that little pink one, but I love it.

    I also use the app Map my Run which is awesome because it tells you though your headphones every time you hit a mile, and what your pace and split times were.

    Everyone keeps coming in the shop telling us about Jeni's, I don't know how I haven't gone in yet, this will be good motivation. That pasta looks delicious and I love Frances giraffe outfit, so cute!!
