Life Lately

Happy Monday.  

We lucked out this week and had some pretty incredible weather.  It always puts me in a good mood when the sun is shining! 

Spent a lot of time outdoors with these two.

I bought sidewalk chalk which I thought was a genius idea to occupy the kids til found this beautiful drawing all over our front door.  At least chalk washes off:)

 Then I busted this little lady chugging all her brother’s chocolate milk.

Love that guilty little face though.

I tried roasting purple cabbage instead of green.  I also brushed it with Dijon mustard and olive oil, it was so tasty.

Thursday night we out for a girls dinner since one of our best friends Amanda was back in town visiting.

Snapped the cutest picture of Frances Moon sleeping.  I swear it looks like she is wearing lipstick.

Friday night we had happy hour with some friends and I made the most delicious and easy 5 ingredient app||

Layer Cream Cheese | Onion Relish ( I actually used a local apricot jalapeno jelly that was awesome) | Black Beans | Crumbled Bacon | Chives

Serve with crackers


Visited with my sweet niece Avery this week, she is such a doll!  Love seeing her in Frances Moon’s old clothes!

 wearing my tie dye dress again it’s a favorite already.


On Saturday we went to a birthday party for my friend Krystine’s two sons.  The kids had a blast.  She had a shaved ice truck come in, the kids were in hog heaven!

Saturday night we went out with some friends in town from Charlotte.  If you are looking for a great white blouse, I love the one I am wearing.  The embroidery and tiny pom-poms won me over!

We ate the Rarebit, which I had never eaten at before.  We all really enjoyed our food and drinks.

I had the Patty Melt and Onion Rings + Succotash and it was so good- no dieting on the weekend.

Found the cutest embroidered tunic/dress from F21.  It also comes in white/orange.

Sunday after church  I made a big batch of chicken salad.   The secret ingredients are celery seed and dried basil.  They give it awesome flavor.

Spent Sundays outside.  Sterling would not eve pause to be in a photo, he was off running the whole time!

Wearing her Tarjay Dress:)

I am really enjoying the book Diane Von Furstenberg wrote, I have been reading it at night.  Love this quote and I think it’s pretty true.

    Sterling looks so grown-up all of a sudden. I can't handle the cuteness factor of FM, too. Love her little hair growing out. She too is getting so grown-up!
