Fridays Confessions....

It's Friday, can I get a hell yeah!!

I am kinda hungover today. We had the Cynthia Rowley event last night, and it was a real good time. As always mama drank a little too much ;) 

I have kinda been in a funk all week?  But today I am choosing to be happy ;)

So this may be kinda gross, and obviously not very common?  But I never floss my teeth!! I hate it, and it hurts. But after my chat about flossing last night and realizing everyone needs to and most likely already does, I am jumping on that bandwagon ha! Please tell me some of you gals hate to floss too?

I am obsessed with my both my new VS lounge jackets!!!
I wear these suckers all the time,and they are both insanely comfortable!
Green jacket here and cream one here
(they run on the big size, because both of mine are smalls)

Thoughts on Tuesday............

We are going to see Santa tonight!!! We plan to get there early cause that place gets crowded!!!!
Here are a few past pictures, Carson has always loved him some Santa.
(lets hope Taylor feels the same).

It's roasting marshmallow time again!
Seriously one of my favorite things to do at night with our little man.

Last thought............. and sorry this is all about the kids, but they are my life, and the little things that make me so happy :)

And together they make each other happy. Melt Me.

That's about all I've got today!

Round Here......

We have been seriously decorating!

Carson is all into it this year which makes it even more exciting!

I like to get it all done and just sit back and enjoy!

I have my Christmas cards ordered, and my favorite candles are on the way.
(don't be too jealous cause I haven't even started shopping yet).

And today I need to be high tailing it to the gym! But instead I am dropping the kids off at school, and I coming home to sit on my arsh, and watching tv. (Cant believe I just admitted that).

Happy Monday sweet cheeks!

Calling all Charleston Ladies........

Me and some of my favorites are co-hosting a girls night out!
So get your babysitters lined up mamas, cause I want to see all your sweet faces there!!
It's going be fabulous, I mean free champagne, sweets, and a sale what more could a girl ask for? 

On another note I will be spending Thanksgiving with just my sweet family of four tomorrow. We will dine out for lunch, come home to Christmas music, hot chocolate, and Christmas decorations. As much as I will miss our sweet families, I will enjoy making new traditions with mine. (And for one holiday not traveling)!   

In advance Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

Daddy Duty............

This past weekend Todd was on some major daddy duty. Of course he said he said it  was all peaches and roses, but come Sunday I am telling y'all I saw a tear when I went to leave again.

Mama was busy, I had friends to see and a special baby to celebrate!

Friday it was not so bad on him, I was at a little wine/play-date from 3 until 11. He joined us about 8, and lets just say he took over from 8 on. Plus he had to drive the little munchkins back home. I have a good excuse for keeping my babies out so late too.
See Below.........
 If you haven't figured out my excuse yet, my girl Julia was in town. We had some laughing and catching up to do so totally excusable!

Lets just go-ahead and assume the obvious. I was useless the little time I was around on Saturday. My head hurt and I knew I had to get it together for another night of fun with more fabulous ladies!

No worries I did. We started the night off with an amazing dinner at Macintosh.

Then we bar hopped the rest of the night. Good Lord Charleston bars are crazy crowded on Saturdays! It was kinda hard to find a seat all together.Next time pjs, cheese, and wine sound like a go to me. The night ended great though, we snatched a seat at the bar and finished with a nice big pour.

No rest for the weary (or the mama who parties too much). Sunday I was back up and on the road. Gave my kids and hubs a quick kiss and I was off.  On the way I called to see how everyone was doing(my babies) and Todd was at the grocery store shopping with both in tow!!! What the hell, such a showoff!

I was on the way to go and help celebrate a new special baby boy that should be here real soon.
My best friend of 13 years is having her first baby boy!!!! eek I am so excited! Sweet baby Coleman was showered with lot's of goodies!

It was a great weekend, and I had no mom duties! That was nice. Thanks Todd for pulling up your sleeves and taking charge daddy style!

The Pretty Blouse

So recently I have really started loving a good blouse. Thanks for giving me another reason to shop Natalie ;)
Want to know one big reason I am loving them? Because they are not tight or clingy. 
Can I get an Amen since mama has quite the muffin top these days.

Plus they really dress up any pant that you have on including jeans.

Now for the good stuff. 

You know this mama likes a good deal, cause I am probably not dropping over $60.00 a top!

Get it Ann Taylor with you new fashionable clothing, so glad you guys stepped out of the granny gear.

So here are my new two favorites that I recently purchased.

Get this...... you get and extra 40% off  Sale tonight until midnight!!!!! Luckily for you both my tops are on sale. No code necessary  just pop it in your cart and the discount appears!

Here are a few more I will be grabbing up tonight before the sale ends.
( I would defiantly say size down in AT I wear a 4 in a blouse and XS in most of their tops).

ps made sure all my above favorites were already on sale for you too, your welcome :)

Happy Monday Ladies!

Fridays Confessions.............

I am insanely happy about today being Friday, because tomorrow night me and my girls are partying like rock-stars!!!(I use rock-star loosely, because lets be real we aint 21 anymore and we have kids that will be waking us up at the crack). None the less it going to be pure fabulousness!!!  

This ones probably going to get me some snubs, but mama hired some new help. The deal was I find someone to clean and do the laundry for the same price or cheaper. Done and for cheaper! So this means I no longer have to do my childrens laundry!  I freaking hate laundry it's the root of all evil around here.

My children have no school next week! I am not gonna lie I am scrambling to find a babysitter for at least  one day. Me + 2 kids and no break all week= Crazy Mom!

We officially have a sitter around here. Tear, she is growing too fast.

 2 weeks ago we took Carson to the State Fair and it was questionably one of the best nights of his life. The boy was in pure heaven. looking back at these pictures makes me so happy. Fun was had.

And I leave you with this wonderful quote.
I am calling it wonderful because this is me looking on the bright side. the bright side that my almost 7 month old still doesn't sleep through the night!!!

Through their eyes............

I plan on doing it up this year!

Christmas through a child's eyes is so very special. 

With Carson being almost 4 and really getting it this year, I want to really pull out all the cards.

Here are a few of my ideas, and some things I plan on grabbing up to make it a little easier.

How fun is this time of year, especially with our little ones!

A Recipe and Shoes...........

Seriously I just made the best salad ever. Granted, I love a bean but this one is bursting with all kinds of flavor.

Thanks for the amazing skinny dish Pinterest!

Cucumber Black-Eyed Pea Salad

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano, or 1 teaspoon dried
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 4 cups peeled and diced cucumbers
  • 1 14-ounce can black-eyed peas, rinsed
  • 2/3 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup slivered red onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped black olives
  • ( I used fresh avocado instead of olives)

And can we talk about these new tiny Botas.

I know I am a little bias but how stinking cute do they look on my little man?
I promise he was not mad, we told him to give us his serious face ha!
 Go get the little person in your life some here.
(as far as sizing goes they are pretty tts, Carsons are a size 10 and he still a some room).

Happy Hump day!

Our Weekend...........

 Friday I got hair highlighted, so that in itself made for a Friday fabulous!
We also had a date night which is always a plus around here. Date night was complete after a lovely dinner and a trip to target. (my how our dates change after kids).

We started off Saturday right too! Brunch with the kids. I wish I could tell you The Early Bird was delicious, but sadly I think Taylors puffs would have tasted better.

No worries Sunday was the best day of all! 

We made it to church!!! Can I get an Amen!!

It was so nice to go back, and I am kinda kicking myself it has taken us this long. Seeing all those sweet faces and hearing such a great message, that was a good feeling.

Last and get ready for picture overload!!! We decided to hit up the Holiday Festival of Lights! I know it's November, and hot outside. Yet is was still so much fun. Got the pictures to prove it.

 (Todd looks high, and Carson totally looks like the Grinch).

The End.
