Life Lately

I hope everyone had a super special Mother’s Day.  I know I certainly did.

A few snippets of life lately.

Monday after school I took the kids to Sugar Bakeshop.  I had not been there in forever and forgot how amazing all their treats are.  The kids were in hog heaven with their cupcakes.  We sampled 4 different ones and they all were delicious.  My favorite was the mint.

Last week’s repeat outfit.

Potted some new plants for our front porch.

Found a new lunch I am addicted to, thanks to my friend Liz.

Lettuce wraps.  Layer lettuce with mashed avocado with lemon juice and red pepper flakes + roasted white beans + hard boiled eggs + radishes.  So easy and tasty.

To roast white beans- just toss in olive oil with salt and pepper and roast at 350 degrees about 20 minutes.  It gives them great flavor and a bit of crunch.

 This maxi dress arrived that I ordered.  It is such a steal under $85 and the colors are amazing in person.  This would be great for a Summer wedding or event.

Could not stop laughing at Frances as she tried to casually steal a chocolate milk at Starbucks.  She looked so guilty like who me??

Friday night we ordered pizza and played games.  Sterling picked Go Fish. We love our Friday pizza + game nights.

I am getting so excited about our vacation in 4 weeks!  I finally busted out of my comfort zone and bought a bikini.

 Saturday we went to Taylor’s 3rd Birthday Party.   I swear my girl Caycee hosts the best birthday parties. She gets every single detail right.  

How gorgeous are the flowers??

All the ladies had a blast catching up!

I spent Sunday with the family. I hate I didn’t get to spend it with my mom but grateful for these two angels.

We enjoyed a lunch picnic.

Then Matt took Sterling to go swim since our pool just opened and I got to enjoy some time alone.  I actually read a few magazines it was so nice.

Then we headed to the Yacht Club for happy hour and to let the kids play.  After rain for a few days it was nice for some sun.

Sterling snapped this picture of me and I love it, I was so happy I had such a special Mother’s Day.

I requested hot dogs for my dinner.  I love a good chili dog and these were amazing.

Perfect ending to Mother’s Day.

Happy Monday

    I have the BB Dakota dress with last year's colors. It is great. Wear mine all the time, especially on warm weather vacations.
