So Very Thankful........

Is tomorrow really Thanksgiving?? I can not believe it is already here! Thanksgiving is absolutely one of my favorite holidays! It is the one and only Holiday that we don't travel, and spend it together with just our family of three(soon to be four)! We do it really laid back too, we go out to lunch and eat a delicious buffet at Bessingers! Then we head to pick out our Christmas tree, and watch Christmas movies the rest of the day! I am really looking forward to it! I just feel so very thankful for all the blessings in my life this year, and feel like the luckiest girl ever! I hope you and your family all have a fabulous Thanksgiving too!!!

Another Random Post??

Sorry about all the random post lately, it's just I have all these little things on my mind that I want to share with you guys!

On Saturday we are having pictures made by the fabulous Julia Ryan, then at 2:00 we have a 3d appointment to find out if we are having a Boy or Girl!!!!!!!!!
I have already picked out a few of my favorite layette brands from Kissy Kissy!!
They seriously have the sweetest softest clothes for your little ones!

Here are my girl picks for Summer


  
Here are my Boy picks for summer




On a total different note Todd and I ventured out Saturday and tried a new Italian restaurant La Fontana that just opened right down from our house. It was amazing, it was real Italian and the cheese O my word! Even better it was so crowded, "we" as in Carson Todd and I  all sat together on a one sided booth ha! Luckily Carson is a squirt and sat in the middle so it wasn't too bad :) I had the
Gnocchi alla Sorrentina Potato dumplings tossed with a homemade pomodoro and basil sauce.And Todd had the Pollo alla Parmigiana (Chicken Parmesean) Pan-fried Chicken Breast topped with marinara and mozzarella cheese. Highly recommend this place for my Charleston readers! 


PS On all my Loot yesterday that was my Happy Birthday, Merry Christmas, and happy pushing or cutting which ever this baby decides it would like to enter the world presents!

Thoughts on Monday..............

We had such a nice laid back weekend, are those not the best?

Saturday morning I had a baby shower to attend then Saturday evening we had a few of the neighbors over for dinner! So I did a lot of cooking!

Here are the appetizers I made

Easy Peasy recipe Via

 I also made The Pioneer Womens Perfect Potatoes!! 

These were made to accompany the steaks and asparagus my husband did on the grill! Our neighbors are awesome!!  One set had fixed our computer a couple of times, and the other set had taken care of our four legged baby while we were out of town. So dinner was the least we could do :)



 I think they were a hit ;)






Also I got a few surprises last week! I struggled rather to tell you guys about this with fear as coming across as spoiled!  I know these things are just material things and are not that important but,I am just so darn giddy, I have to share!


This baby is all mine now, and I must admit it was love at first sight!

Also this may have showed up in my driveway Thursday :)

One more little surprise, this pretty got all hung up in the laundry room! I have a feeling this is going to make clothes folding a whole lot better ha!


Happy Monday XOXO!!!

For the Baby....

So I have started making a little list of things I would like to get "for the baby".

1) Actually this is being made as we speak, and I can not wait to get my hands on it! I love all white linen!
 

2) The LV Totally MM Damier Azur
Every baby needs a stylish diaper bag, and this is my number one pick!
PS I put it on a 48hr hold at LV so get your booty up there hubs xoxo

3) I am really crushing on this infant car-seat
 
Via 
 
Carson has the bigger version in this same print, and I would love for them to match :) Silly I know!


4) Last but not least some new Pixie Lily in her new "Candy Stripe"
 Via

Anything else you think is a must for this new baby??

Trick or Treat 2011

This was by far the best Halloween we have ever celebrated! All of the little ones were so darn cute, and they were so into the whole thing! It was seriously priceless!



They were off to their first house of the night!

Ready to get their candy!

These two made it late into the night, just like last year!
 One tired puppy, but not to tired to eat some of that delicious candy he got :)


 Hope you and your little ones had as much fun as we did!
