Memorial Weekend Recap....

I sure hope you all had a great long weekend, I know we sure did!!! It was really one of the best  weekends we have had in a long time! We really loved having an extra day of having daddy to play with us!


On Saturday we had Baby Ellies first birthday party on Kiawah! It was beyond gorgeous out there! The weather was perfect, and the kids had a fabulous time playing on the beach!





On Sunday Todd and I got some things done around the house. I finally recovered my chairs, and changed out the art work in the breakfast area!( Pics soon) Then when Carson woke up from his nap we headed to the neighbors for a cookout! Have I mentioned that I absolutely adore our neighborhood, and adore the people even more?? Well I do, so so much! Check out the cool water slide Lauren had set up for the kids! It was a huge hit, and the kids were worn out by the end of the night! I on the other hand didn't make it back to our house until around midnight. Good thing its a short walk ha!




So Monday we just chilled! We actually went to the neighborhood pool twice, and grilled out, but it was relaxing none the less!

Last Days.....

Wednesday was Carsons last day of MMO for the summer! I am not sure who was more sad me or Carson? No worries though, I will still get some mommy time alone this summer. Carson will start with Miss LuLu on June 7th! Miss LuLu keeps a few of the sweet kiddos on our street, so I am supper excited he will be there with his buddies ;) It gets better, he will go on Tuesdays and Fridays ALL DAY! I have the option of dropping him off as early as 6:30 and picking up at 6:00. Now I have no intentions of that, I am thinking for us it will be 8 until 3 or so, but it's nice to know I have the option ;) My plans for these two days, is to run errands, work on a few projects, and relax preferably by poolside :) I am excited, I so love being a SAHM, but I also still enjoy just me time! please tell me some of you other SAHM moms feel this way! O yes and speaking of last, I am pretty sure Wednesday was our last days of the bubbles. Seriously how cute did he look in it though!

Weekend Recap............

So besides me getting really sick on Sunday, we had a fabulous weekend! Friday night we got to my parents kinda late, so we decided to just hang out with them, and their new dog!!! She is such a sweet puppy! More on that later ;)


Saturday my niece and nephews came over to visit  for a few hours! This is always such a treat to me,because I do not see their sweet faces enough! Plus Carson thinks they hung the moon ;) Here is a picture of Carter and Carson playing in "their" room! I love watching these two together, they seriously crack me up!


Todd and I also slipped away for a little lunch date on Saturday while the babies were napping! We went to one of our favorite Florence restaurants, and believe me the food was amazaballs! Don't get me wrong I am aware we live in Charleston, SC with some of the most amazing food on earth! But I swear those little small town restaurants can some times be the best!


Then on Saturday night Todd and I attended his cousins wedding! We had a lot of fun! The reception was outside, and the weather was just perfect! We may have drank a few too many and danced a little rowdy, but hey isn't that what you do at weddings ;)

It was a good one.....

But all you get today, is a little sneak peek! We did have a great weekend in Florence! We had another wedding, (story of our lives these days )! But I got really sick on Sunday morning, like the kinda sick you think you are not going to make it. Luckily my mom and daddy took great care of me, while Todd and Carson visited his parents. Today, well today I feel weak and out of it so I am going to get some more rest!

Dear Rocky,

Dear Rocky, I thought it appropriate since I have been talking about weight loss lately, to show you some love! I am so proud to call you my fur baby, a little cocky and stubborn you may be, but you really are a sweet dog! Over the years and lots of table food you became a little chunky :) Luckily for you we found a new rock star vet Dr. Sauls!  He nicely suggested you go on a diet, so we listened. I have to be honest I thought you would just starve before you ate "diet" food, but Dr. Sauls had a little more faith in you, and said if you got hungry enough you would eat it! He was right, you did, and didn't even complain too much ;) So I am happy to report you lost 6lbs, and seem to be one happy "little" pup!!

My First Vlog!

video
I hope this helps you guys out! Please excuse my voice, and the rambling :)

PS I totally forgot to mention my girl Leslie who helped me with all my nutrition! She rocks, and really helped me to learn what was healthy and what was not!

Must Have these.....

Can you guess??? Yep that's right more Lily Pulitzer, I just never get sick of her stuff! When I saw these two dresses, I just knew we were made for each other ha! But at over $300.00 a piece looks like it may be a while before we get together ;)

On another note, thank you all so much for your sweet comments on my last post! I could just eat you guys up! Also I had a lot of questions, that I plan to answer for you guys! So tonight I am going to do my fist Vlog for you all, where I will give you the down low on how I lost my weight.

It's Official!!!!!

I have met my goal! I now weigh 115 pounds! I know many of you are probably so tired of hearing about this,as I am starting to bore myself :) But this had to be documented, I made this goal almost two years ago to the day, and have finally reached it! This is such a big deal for me, because I am that girl, when things get tough I quit! No more my friends no more!



Now because I know we all love a good before and after........... or in this case after and before!






Just for laughs, and so you can roll you eyes here it is, in just the sports bra ;) and if you look close, actually, you don't even have to look very close you can see all those beautiful stretch marks! Hey I am slowing trying to embrace my flaws, because after all I have one handsome man to show from them!

Seriously you guys with your sweet comments and encouraging words totally rock my world, and put a big smile on my face ;)

Mothers Day Weekend.....



I could not have asked for a more relaxing and beautiful weekend with my boys! Believe it or not I actually took pictures of everything we did ;) So instead of giving you all the details in words I will just show you the pictures!

This is what Saturday looked like, beautiful flowers, Starbucks, and lots of goodies from Sugar! Could a girl ask for more??

 Yes I ate everything you see in that box all by myself!! Holy diet killer Batman!


On Saturday evening we had a Kentucky Derby party at our friends the Hendons! We had a great time, lots of good food, good wine, and great company!



After the party we were all pooped, so I got some good snuggle time in with one of my favorite boys :)


Sunday morning was just beautiful, another morning with Starbucks, and some really sweet cards! Todd did an awesome job to make my day special! I asked that we just hang out, and not really make any plans. That we did! We took Rocky to the new dog park in our neighborhood, which is just beautiful by the way, and the boys were in heaven with all that space to run free :)   We even saw our sweet neighbor Mia while playing, and her and Carson were cracking us up in their cool shades! 


After the park we put Carson down for nap and enjoyed mimosas and lunch! Todd grilled some amazing chicken on the grill!

Now that's what this mama calls a Happy Mothers Day!

Out with the Old......

In with the new! Since selling all of my Lily dresses, thanks to you ladies by the way :) I have had a little Lily withdraw ha! So I thought I would show you what I plan to replace the old ones with! Or at least what I would like to replace the old ones! I swear if I had lots of money I would wear Lily Pulitzer everyday, I just loves it!
