Snippets from Our Weekend


Happy Monday everyone!! I hope you all had a lovely weekend! 

// On Friday, Todd and I picked the kiddos up from school and headed to meet our good friends at the Coastal Carolina FAIR!! I have so many happy childhood memories of the fair, and all those memories come rushing back while watching our kids have so much fun. Carson is just like my brother was as a child, and he doesn't want to ride anything thing that is too high or that spins too fast.  Taylor, on the other hand, is a mini-me...the higher and faster, the better...ha! 






What I wore
Tank (on major sale) // Jeans // TB Flats



// Saturday morning, Todd headed out super early to run the Spartan Race - Carolina Beast with my brother and two other friends. Todd said that is was by far the hardest mud run/race that he has ever participated in. The run ended up being 14.27 miles long, had 35 obstacles, and it was up and down hills the entire time. I am so proud of all four of these guys for finishing. 



// The kids and I enjoyed the morning just chillin in our pajamas. They slept in pretty late because we had such a late night at the fair, so I took advantage with a big cup of coffee and I planned out our meals for the week. 

I am in love with these new pajamas I ordered last week! They are super soft, and I just love the fitted bottoms. For sizing reference, they run a little snug in the bottoms. I am wearing a small. 



// Saturday evening, the kids and I headed over to hang out with one of my dearest friend's and her family. We had planned to head out for dinner, but decided with the kids and our new lifestyle change that ordering would be easier. So, we all enjoyed some yummy, gluten free pizza from Marcos! I didn't take any pictures, but I did snap this one of my outfit before we left. 

Gail Jacket (similar here and here ) // Tank // Jeans // Booties


// On Sunday, we did a little pantry and fridge cleaning/organizing. And after that, I headed to Whole Foods to stock up for all of our meals and lunches for the week. We have tried lots of the non-dairy, gluten free breads, but there were none that we loved so I decided to make my own. I used Danielle Walker's recipe from her book, Meals Made Simple. If you don't want to buy this book you can also find the recipe online here. Everyone except Carson LOVED this bread, but I will say it was almost $13 to make one loaf! The only raw cashew butter that I could find was $11 for a small jar, and since Carson didn't love it I am still going to continue to search the paleo breads. 



// And last, I wanted to share this outfit I wore on Sunday. These jeans are so awesome y'all, and I can't get over how soft this cold shoulder tee is! Jeans runs small, so size up one or two sizes depending on how you like your fit, and the shirt runs tts!

  1. I don't know if you follow her or not , but the blog full hands full heart follows a gluten and dairy free diet . She posted some treats this morning that are both dairy and gluten free. In case you are looking for some more ideas.
