Snippets from our weekend

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!  The weather here was so nice so we spent the majority of our time outside.  On Saturday, we even snuck in an evening swim after dinner!  Well, I should say Todd and the kids did, I just watched, because the water is still a little too cold for me :) 

// On Friday morning I had a breakfast to attend to celebrate the new Hatch X Buru collaboration!  It was such a fun start to my Friday.  I also walked away with this fabulous dress! 

What I wore 
Dress- same brand and style just different colors // Sandals // Bracelet 

On Friday evening we took dinner to our good friend's from across the street that just had their third baby.  This really is such a sweet baby girl!  They already had two boys, so this baby girl was such a special surprise, plus, they didn't find out during the pregnancy so it really was a big surprise!! 

And of course I had to slip on my new dress Friday.  All jokes aside, this is the softest, comfiest dress ever!!!  And even though you can't tell in this picture it also has pockets on both sides! 

// Saturday morning, Taylor woke up bright and early so she and I decided to head downtown while the boys practiced baseball before Carson's game.  We stopped by my favorite boutique, Simply J, and now I think it may be her favorite as well.  Sarah, the owner, had her two precious girls at the store that morning as well, and they had such a blast playing together!  

If you are local, you really need to drop in.  They have some great new pieces for spring, including a killer collection of Betsy Pittard Jewelry, plus, some amazing art by my girl, Ann Swartz's!  

After a little shopping, Tay and I decided to stop in at Cookies on King and grab a little snack!  Hands down the best cookies you will ever eat.  My favorite are the sugar cookies with mini M&Ms...oh my, they are so delicious! 

// Then it was off to Carson's baseball game, where our little man ended up earning the game ball!!  At the end of each game his coach pulls all the boys to the side and they talk about the game, and if he feels one of the players has done good enough, he gives his the game ball.  I can't explain how excited I was for our little guy, he was all smiles, as I am sure you can imagine!  He and his team played an awesome game, and in the very first inning Carson caught a line drive while playing second base with a runner on first, so he quickly jumped up and threw it to the first baseman (his buddy Mason) to make a double play. 

After Carson's game we headed out to pick up his best buddy Austin for a sleepover at our house. 
These two have the BEST time together, and it's so crazy for me to think that they have been best buddies since they were less than a year old! 

After dinner we all went for an evening swim! I know they had to bee freezing their butts off, but they weren't going to let that stop them. 

Especially this little firecracker! 

// On Sunday Taylor woke up again super early, and she ready to rock and roll! She went upstairs to play and after just a few minutes I heard her in Carson's room waking Carson and his friend up :) So, I made the kids a big Sunday breakfast while Todd took the boys outside to fish! 

All the kids gobbled up these pancakes so fast you would have thought it was their first time ever eating pancakes! I guess emoji pancakes just taste better than regular ones ha! 

// Then it was off to the the Celadon Sunday Flea. The kids had a great time jumping on the jump castle and running around, while Todd and I enjoyed the yummy food and the great music. 

What I wore 
Tee // Bralette // Jeans // Sandals // Hat (same brand just different banding) 

So needless to say when Sunday evening rolled around we were all pooped, and even Todd and I were in the bed by 9:00 pm :)

Shoe Twins.....Dad and son looks

Happy Saturday, y'all!  Looks likes it's going to be another gorgeous, sunny day here in Charleston! Carson has a baseball game, and after that, we are heading to pick up one of his buddies for a sleepover!  I am looking forward to a night of pizza, games, and movies!! 

 Yesterday I shared a mommy and me look, so now, I think it's only fair that I give my boys and their shoes a little shout out as well. 

And who knew Crocs could look so stylish?!?  Silly question I guess, because obviously my friends at Rack Room Shoes knew! 

I really love the fact that both of their shoes can be dressed up for a more preppy look, all while still having the comfort of everyone's favorite brand, Crocs

And again, Crocs are included in Rack Room Shoes everyday BOGO, so it's a great time to grab a pair for your entire family!

Outfit Details 

Carson's - Button down // Shorts // Shoes c/o  

Todd's - Polo // Shorts // Belt // Shoes c/o

Shoe Twins... Mommy and Me

Cheers my's Friday!!! 

Today I am teaming up with Rack Room Shoes to share some of their fun spring sandals!  And you know I couldn't resist shoe-twinning with my mini, so I knew Taylor and I both had to have these adorable braided sandals. 

Besides the fact that these sandals are super cute, they are also extremely comfortable.  Both pair have a light, cushioned lining and stretchy ankle straps.  That being said, we can both wear these all day long without worrying about sore feet, plus, getting them on and off is a breeze! 

All smiles sporting her new sandals. 

And don't forget Rack Room Shoes offers their everyday BOGO on almost all of their shoes!  This makes it so much easier to grab more than one pair or buy for shoes for the entire family. 

Taylor's Outfit Details //

My Outfit Details // 

Dress // Sunglasses (40% off) // Necklace // Bracelet // Sandals c/o

Going on around here

Happy Thursday love bugs...I hope you are all having a great week!  It's been a fun and busy week around here.  I feel like I've had more events and meetings in one week than I have all year long. 

// On Tuesday morning, I dropped by the warehouse of one of my favorite local furniture and home decor shops, Celadon!  Earlier this month they invited me out to preview their new arrivals and pick out a few of my favorites for their 12 week summer series, the Celadon Sunday Flea Market.  Their warehouse is jam packed with all kinds of gorgeousness, and I am already dreaming up all the pieces I would love for the new house.  So locals, if you don't have any plans on Sunday, I highly recommend you load up the family and head to North Charleston for this fun event!!  The time is 11AM-2PM and there will be over 50 locals artist and makers, a live band, jump castles, cotton candy, and my favorite beer and food trucks galore!  So without any more rambling, here's a little peek at some of my favorite Celadon pieces. 

What I am wearing 

// On Tuesday night, I had dinner plans with a few girlfriends at the Macintosh with Lauren, the beautiful face behind LBH and Company.  She and I have sent so many emails back and forth over the years, so I was very happy and so excited to finally meet her in person!  And she was, of course, even more lovely and sweet in person! 

What I wore //

// And last night it was another night out on the town with two fun events and double dinner date with Ashley and her hubs!

What I wore

The first event was hosted by Tara Guerard celebrating Eddie Ross and his new book Modern Mix! By the time we arrived all his books were sold out, so I promptly came home and placed my order for one here.  I can't wait to get my hands on it, especially after meeting Eddie in person.  He was so real and hilarious, I seriously could have sat and chatted with him all night! 

After that Ashley and I walked down a few blocks for a little blogger meet up that was being hosted at Zero George.  And it was so fun finally meeting sweet Erin and Allie!!

We ended the night with dinner at Michael's on the Ally with our husbands.  Or I should say Todd and I ended the night, because Ashley and Lanier had a concert to attend after dinner ;)  It was such a fun night and I loved seeing and chatting with so many wonderful people, but I am officially wiped out today...haha!!  I'm hoping I'll catch my second wind because I have a much needed date at the gym with my trainer....wish me luck!!

A Gift For Every Mom

As you probably know, I am a big fan of Modcloth and all of their clothing, but did you know they also have a really cool home and gift section?!  I spent the better half of my day yesterday browsing their site, and I was truly shocked at all the great stuff I found.

Below are a few of my favorites that I think would make some great Mother's Day gifts!  

This may be the sweetest book ever.  And how fun would it be filling this out and reminiscing on all of your favorite memories as a child (and as an adult) that you've shared with your mother. 

No more mascara stained washcloths with this bad boy!  I don't think any mom would have a problem receiving one of these! 

When in doubt, a candle always make a great gift.  The Green Fig and Bamboo scent sounds amazing!  The gorgeous ceramic holder it comes in is an added bonus.

176 pages of delicious ways to make toast......sign me and mama up for this one please! 

These may just be the most adorable measuring cups I've ever seen and I am not even a cat lover...ha! 

I think this would make a perfect gift for the expecting mom.
I wish so badly that I would have kept a journal when I was pregnant with Taylor and Carson.  I would love to look back and remember all the thoughts and feelings I had throughout each pregnancy. 

Funniest yoga mat ever!  And please tell me I am not the only one thinking about what I want to eat the entire time I am working out...haha! 

And below, I've rounded up a few more cute gift ideas from Modcloth

*Thank you Modcloth for partnering on this post.

New Shopbop Markdowns... Hunter, Joie, Parker and more!!!

Whoop whoop Shopbop just made TONS of new markdowns! 

There are so many good ones, but the ones below are my top picks from the sale!! 

If anyone has an upcoming wedding to attend, or a fun cocktail party please get this dress! I wish I had somewhere to wear it, because it's absolutely stunning! This color and print also comes in this wrap dress as well! 

The colors and the style of this blouse are simply stunning, and perfect for spring and summer!

I have a few pair of Rag and Bone jeans, but I have yet to get a solid white pair! I know everyone raves over these, so I am considering giving them a try while they are on sale! 

It's not very often you see the classic Splendid pjs on sale, and I love this beautiful blue color! 

This beach maxi is gorgeous, and I love the embroidered details too!  

This blue so pretty and perfect for rainy spring days! 

And because clearly I am having a thing for blue today :)
