Can y’all believe this is the last Monday of August and that Christmas is 4 months away?? Holy wow this year is flying by!! Friday morning Frances Moon and I did a little shopping downtown. I picked up this adorable blue and white ruffled blouse. This was right after she told me my stomach was fluffy like a pillow:) I got a size 2 in the blouse it ran on the large side.
Friday night the kids and I did a family dinner at Smokey Oak. I love their chicken and bacon quesadilla- and nope I didn’t diet this weekend:)
After dinner we headed to Magonlia Bakery for some ice cream. I was beyond excited when I saw they had a cinnamon toast crunch flavor. It did not disappoint.
Saturday morning we did our usual stop at Glazed Doughnuts before the Farmers Market.
I am obsessed with the Bee’s Knees coffee at Glazed- so tasty!
Sterling loves to help me pick out my tomatoes. It makes me so happy my kids get excited about gorgeous produce like I do.
I stopped in a new wine store that I adore- Monarch Wines. They had an awesome wine selection and the owner Justin was so nice and helpful. They offer wine tasting classes which I can’t wait to do!
Ready for Fall with this stripe peplum tee that is only $35.
Saturday night we had some friends over to grill out. If you have never done crab legs on the grill it is a must!
I made Ina Garten’s Parmesan Chive Smashed Potatoes which are always a hit!
I also made this Summer Salad was amazing and so easy to make.
Arugula + fresh peaches diced (I used 3 large ones) + 1 yellow onion caramalized (sautee in olive oil 10 minutes or until browned) + gorgonzola + crispy pancetta (dice and cook in a small pan with olive oil until cripsy, pat off extra oil) + fresh basil. Layer all then drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
Sunday we went to church. Sterling dressed himself and I loved his outfit choice.
Wore this Mara Hoffman dress that is now on sale
