Scenes From Our Weekend

Did the time change mess everyone up yesterday??  I swear the day yesterday flew by!  But I have to admit I do love it staying light later.  This morning however was hard to get out of bed!


I tried  a new to me restaurant for lunch this week, The Americano in Mt Pleasant.  The exterior and interior designs are so cool.  The food was awesome. I had the fried oyster taco, ground beef taco and the chopped salad.  So good, I will be back!


My friend Krystine snapped this picture of me and Frances Moon outside the restaurant, the grass wall was so neat.  Perfect back drop for a picture!


I took this picture Thursday night before the weather turned frigid Friday.  You can almost see the cold rolling in with the dark clouds.  Sterling loves to walk to the end of our street and watch the water.

We spent most of Friday indoors since it was so cold.  I worked on cleaning out and organizing closets.  I found this old dress of mine and had to try it on Frances.  I love that my mom saved so many of our things.


My dad made the most delicious martinis for happy hour Friday night.  It is vodka + Charred Grapefruit Bitters and a splash of soda.

Wearing my cheapie F21 Blouse.


Saturday morning I took the kids to Chick Fila and Barnes and Nobles to pick out some new books. It makes me so happy that my kids love books as much as I do:) 

Saturday night we had a couples date night with 6 other couples.
Outfit Details:


We went to a hibachi grill and I have to say it was the most fun.  I had not had hibachi probably since college.  We had a blast!

I did the veggies meal and it was actually delicious.


We definitely had a little too much fun!


Made some delicious juice Sunday morning.
Blood Oranges + Carrots + Ginger.  


Sunday the weather was just gorgeous.  We took the kids on a long walk and enjoyed some much needed time in the sun.  Sterling actually took this picture of us, he is getting good with my phone!


Happy Monday!  Since yesterday was International Women's Day I thought I would share this amazing quote.  Thankful for so many strong women in my life and hope Frances grows up the same way surrounded by confident and strong women.

Looks like a great weekend! That happy hour martini looks delish, I've been trying to experiment with bitters so I'm definitely going to keep a look out for that one!

Such a fun date night!! We rarely think to go to hibachi too, but when we do we always have a blast and the food is always so yummy. No matter how much I try to mimic their fried rice at home, I never succeed!!! Love seeing FM in your childhood dress. So sweet.
