My birthday fell on Thursday last week so a few girlfriends and I decided to go out Wednesday night to celebrate. Usually I would celebrate the day of my birthday but I had promised the kids we would go out to dinner as family. Little did I know I would awake at 5:30 on my birthday to Sterling sick as a dog with the stomach bug. It was honestly the sickest I have ever seen him. I spent the bulk of my birthday cleaning up throw up and then promptly collapsed into bed early that night, so I was thankful for a night out Wednesday.
My outfit Wednesday.
I switched purses at the last minute for a smaller one. I bought this Tory Burch one last year before I went to NYC and it is such a great size.
We tried out Darling Little Oyster Bar. Such a cute new spot. downtown on Upper King Street.
The Paloma drink was so refreshing. They use fresh squeezed juices and fresh herbs for all their drinks.
I had the fried shrimp basket with kale slaw and vegetable salad. I loved it all!
Thursday and much of Friday was spent with a sick child.
This was Frances before her Easter Egg hunt at school, she was clearly very excited:)
The weather so gross and rainy Saturday so I baked my favorite cupcakes for Easter + my Birthday. Recipe is Here– they are so easy and seriously delicious.
Saturday I took the kids to Gwynn’s to see the bunny rabbits. We do this every year, they love it- and I love to shop afterwards:)
I was lusting after these two purses. I didn’t buy either but loved them both!
Saturday night Matt took me out to dinner for my Birthday. I picked The Lot one of my favorite JI restaurants.
We sat outside which is covered and heated and got to watch the coolest rain storm.
Our entire meal was amazing but these two salads were my favorite part.
Sunday we woke up and did Easter Baskets and then hit the road to Charlotte.
We arrived in time for an Easter egg hunt! My dad made these Easter baskets for us when we were kids and the kids love them! He actually made us new versions for our kids but I have left ours in Charleston!
Frances is wearing my favorite Lilly dress, I want it every color for her it is so cute!
My little Easter bunnies.
Enjoying the Veuve, always our favorite champs of choice.

My sister is the wearing the Vince Camuto dress I blogged about a few weeks ago. She and my mom both ordered it and it is even cuter in person! My mom bought the other color option.
My feeling after an indulgent weekend:)
