Hello pretty ladies (and gentlemen...if there are any guys that read this blog), and happy Monday!
We had such a great weekend around here filled with lots of fun with friends, plus, a lot of family time! It finally felt like real fall weather and we soaked up every second of it outdoors.
On Saturday, we ate lunch at one of our favorite spots, Angel Oak Restaurant. The weather was perfect so we decided to enjoy it by eating out on the patio. If you visit this restaurant, Todd and I both highly recommend their fried pickles. They are so good, plus, they are gluten free for anyone who is allergic or is gluten free by choice.
What I wore
After lunch, we headed to the Halloween store to complete the rest of the kid's costumes. Both Carson and Taylor threw us a curve ball this year and wanted to dress up in something that couldn't be bought as a package deal or just one costume. Taylor requested to be a zebra puppy (and I have no idea where this came from), and she knew exactly what she wanted it to look like. So, a zebra costume, puppy ears, a puppy tail, and a puppy nose later, we have a real zebra puppy my friends! I can't wait to show you guys this costume...haha! And Carson's request was to be a zombie baseball player. Finding all the things necessary to complete this look was much easier!
While at the Halloween store, we spent way too much time playing with all the funny glasses.
And I've got to tell y'all the story behind the glasses. When we first arrived at the Halloween store, Taylor had to potty, so Todd took Taylor to use the porta potty outside. Well, when he bent over to help Taylor, his new pair of Rayban sunglasses fell in. They got sucked down to the bottom and could not be retrieved (or maybe Todd just didn't have it in him to go digging them out). Taylor could tell that Todd was a little bummed about his glasses, so the first thing she did when they walked back into the store was find him a new pair of sunglasses. She was so proud that she found him a new pair that Todd decided he had to buy them. And being that Taylor has the biggest heart ever, and doesn't like to leave anyone out, she also picked out these lovely blue sunglasses for me...haha :)
On Saturday evening, we had our neighborhood "haunted hayride". And when I say haunted, all the dad's dress up as something scary and they jump out along the ride to scare the kids. And y'all, this year was the best, because not one kid was scared at all. They were all quite bold actually, and they laughed and laughed trying to figure out which dad was dressed as what. It was so much fun seeing all the kids so happy and laughing together.
Needless to say, we were all dragging a little on Sunday...we didn't even make it out of the house until noon. When we finally got up and rolling, we headed over to the island to grab lunch and check on the progress of the house.
This is the kids sushi bowl from The Islander, and y'all, it is so so good! I always eat whatever Taylor can't finish. If it weren't only on the kids menu, I would totally order it for my meal!
And we ended the night with my favorite thing ever......s'mores by the fire!! Oh, how I love this time of year.
Last, but not least, here are a few new fall outfits that I have been rocking recently.
