Wednesday's Brain Dump


Good morning friends, and happy hump day!! 

 Todd and I celebrated 11 years of marriage this past weekend! We had already celebrated in Palmetto Bluff last month so I didn't think we would too much on our actual anniversary, but Todd surprised me by booking a little overnight trip downtown complete with flowers, dinner plans, and an overnight sitter for the kids. I was so excited and we had the best time! 


We headed out early Saturday afternoon and enjoyed walking around downtown while also hitting up a few bars for happy hour before checking into our hotel. 


What I wore 

Adjustable Bohemian Stripe Tank (only $20) // Shorts // Wedges (on sale) 

Tank runs big, and for sizing reference, I'm wearing an xs. 

Our first stop was The Watch at the Restoration Hotel. The hotel has a really nice rooftop bar, but the patio was filled when we first arrived so we sat at the bar inside and enjoyed a cocktail. If any of you ever visit, I highly recommend ordering the Romero's Bad Habit cocktail...it's so delicious and refreshing. 


After our first cocktail it cleared out a bit and we were able to enjoy an appetizer and a glass of wine on the rooftop patio. It felt so amazing outside, and the view was incredible. 


After leaving The Watch we walked around a little more, and then headed back to our hotel to check in and get ready for dinner. We stayed at the King Charles Inn, and I can't say enough wonderful things about it. The hotel inside and out was beautiful, and the location was perfect for walking to bars and restaurants. And while we didn't do any shopping, it's just a short walk to King Street. 



Todd made us reservations at Anson, and I was really excited being that we had never been there before. 



I didn't take a lot of pictures, but Todd and I enjoyed everything we ordered. Our favorites were the beet salad, fried green tomatoes, and the fried pork chop. Clearly, we were craving all things fried...haha! 



// On Sunday, we took our new inflatable boat out for the first time. You guys, this thing is so cool, and the quality is amazing. Neither Todd nor myself could believe how nice it was for the price! And the kids had a blast, and have asked us after school the last couple days if we could take it out. 





// I know a lot of you guys prefer to shop my outfits from my blog instead of the Liketoknowit app, so here are all the details on a few of my recent looks. I also updated my "shop my looks" page here with some new fall arrivals. I'll be posting these on Instastories as well, detailing the size and fit of everything. 



Dress runs tts and I'm wearing a small. 




Stripe Romper (only $17)  // Earrings // Tote // Wedges // Watch

Romper runs tts, and for reference, I'm wearing an xs.

Linen Dress also on sale here // Earrings // Sandals

Dress runs tts, and for reference, I'm wearing an xs. 

// And last, here's the recipe for the easiest, most delicious chicken carnitas ever!! So many of you guys sent DM messages on stories last night, asking what the sauce was on our bowls. It's Tessemae's creamy ranch! Todd and I discovered this stuff when we did Whole 30 back in January, and we've been hooked every since! I order mine here off Amazon because we also love her habanero ranch and I can never find it in any of our local grocery stores.
