Scenes From Our Weekend


Ladies, thank you so much for the out pouring of support on Friday.  I was honestly a little nervous to share my journey but something pushed me to do it and I am so glad I did.  I appreciated every single personal email and comment I received.  I am still trying to respond to all the emails I got so if you have not heard from me I am working on it!  It made me feel hopeful to know I am not alone and there are others trekking down the same path as me.  So thank you from the bottom of my heart for listening to my story and sharing yours.  Here is to 2013 being a great year for all of us.

Now on to our weekend.

If you live in Charleston you must hit up Hampden Clothing.  Non locals they have a great website  too, so you can shop online!   They are having their annual 75% off sale and there are some amazing deals there.  The prices are incredible!  I scored this fabulous red dress that I just may wear next weekend for my sister's baby shower.


Thank you for all the fab hair suggestions.  There are so many I want to try out.  To start off I hit up Target and picked up all the Suave Keratin products.  They were the most recommended products by far.  I will try them out this week and let you girls know what I think.  I am also going to start taking the Biotin pills.


While we were at Target I decided to treat Sterling to his first Icee and he loved it- and so did I.  I forgot how darn good these are!  I demolished half of it and wish I had gotten myself one.


Speaking of Target their dollar section is such a great place to find activities for kids.  I picked up this Valentine banner there and Sterling and I had a great time coloring it.  He loved it so much he insisted we hang it in his room:)


 I got my first pedicure since last summer- seriously it had been awhile since my feet had been pampered.  I used Essie Macks and love it.  The perfect transition color between winter and spring, not too dark and not too light.



Saturday night we tried our hand at making our own pizza.  I picked up dough from our local pizza place and we made this terrific Thai Chicken Pizza.  Recipe coming to blog this week.  It was ridic, the flavors were so fresh.


Sunday night Matt went to bed super early (like 7:30) so I let this little guy get in bed and cuddle and watch the SAG red carpet with with me.  Nothing better than cuddling in bed with your little one.  Perfect end to our weekend.  and FYI I don't normally lounge in bed in a mink hat, Sterling insisted I wear it.


 These ladies were a few of my favorite best dressed from the SAGS.  Side parts and strapless dresses were in full effect last night!


Happy Monday!
xoxo

So glad you're feeling better about things Nat! You look amazing in that red dress, total celeb!

More than anything, I love Sterling's appearances in the back of your dressing room photos. He always looks like he is up to no good and I love it! You are rockin' that dress. And your pizza looks phenomenal!

Nat said...

Such a cute dress! Sterling looks too happy with that Icee- now I kind of want one!

I use the Suave Keratin shampoo. It's awesome and CHEAP! I wrote a review about it last summer when I discovered it. I have the dry shampoo. Not a big fan. :( I didn't realize Hampden was having their sale. I got a dress from one of their sales for like nothing. Makes the dress even prettier!

You are so pretty in that last picture with Sterling. Pure joy is beautiful.

Chicago Mom (Heather) said...

That dress is perfect on you! Um, am I the only one that thinks that the gal modeling it in the pic has her shoes on the wrong feet? Such a gorgeous color, though!

Yum!! That pizza looks so good right now. (I am so hungry! HA)....and that Essie nail polish is awesome. I love the picture of you with the red dress--haha..sterling looks so cute in the background.

Christina said...

I love how in the background of the dressing room pic, Sterling is clearly digging in your purse for more candy. LOVED Amanda Seyfried's look. That mink hat? Want. I had to laugh at you wearing it in bed. If it keeps the boy happy, might as well do it.

Serena P said...

you look great in the red dress!! I had to laugh, I think the model has her shoes on the wrong feet!!! I hope you have a great week!!

Charlotte said...

Totally agree with you on the picks for Jessica Chastain and Amanda Seyfried as best dressed. Was Amanda high though? She seemed loooopy on the E's red carpet interview.

Taylor said...

I'm so sorry to read about your struggles. God has a plan sometimes we just don't realize it. I'm glad people commenting who have been in the same place can help.
