Life Lately.

Happy Monday Friends.  Sorry for the lack of post Friday but I was traveling and could not get my act together beforehand between packing and taking care of my kids.  Life has been busy lately in a good way:)  Get ready for picture overload today.

I finally tried the Butcher and Bee house salad last week and it was so delicious.  Local friends check it out!  I paired it with a side of their homemade hummus which is always so good.

I stopped in my favorite entertaining store Open Door Shop last week and was in terrafirma heaven.  These serving pieces are my favorites.  They are dishwasher safe and I love all the fun patterns. You probably recognize them from some of my recipe posts.

Sweet Frances Moon has become obsessed with showing off her belly.  Every time we ask her to smile for a picture she shows her belly.  This could be a bad thing in 15 years....

New favorite outfit on repeat. I wore it 3 times last week.

I stopped in Old Navy this week to return a few things and found these fabulous shoes.
Sold out online so check your stores!

One of the things I love most about Sterling is his honesty. He recently told me " Mom I love you, but when you put me in time out I love you a lot less."
This is his best attempt at Blue Steel ( and how excited are we for Zoolander 2??)

Thursday I headed to Dallas for a blogger conference.  I flew out with my girl Caycee.
I got brave towards the end of the flight and looked out the window.  The layers and layers of clouds were just gorgeous.

This was my second year going to Dallas for the Reward Style Conference and it is always a fabulous weekend.  Best part is meeting up with friends from across the US that we only get to see once a year.
Night one was a roof top pool party.

Saturday was filled with meetings during the day.
I carried this purse all weekend and starting today Gigi New York is offering free personalization for Mothers Day:)
 Lunch with my mommy blogger friends
Carly, Sheaffer, Cassie, Courtney, Caycee and Megan.

Friday night was a fun party at the eye garden (minus the torrential rain)

Saturday we got lucky enough to spend some time at the pool.  After pouring rain for two days it was welcome.  This was my favorite day because I was able to relax and have lots fun girl talk by the pool.

Finally got the chance to wear my black one piece.
I apparently need to find a good two piece though because I was the only one in a one piece!

That night RS hosted a fabulous party at the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge.  It was such a cool idea to host a party here. 
Complete with fireworks!

I have been loving all of Mara Hoffman's fun prints for Summer so I wore one of her maxi dresses that night.

The best part of the weekend is always connecting with blogger friends.  Courtney and I have emailed and been friends for years and finally got to meet in person and that was such a treat.  She is stunning in person and has a heart of gold. 

I came home to a girl who used to be Mama's girl and now is all about Daddy.  Not gonna lie it hurt my feelings a bit but made me super happy they bonded. 

Nothing better than coming home to these sweet faces.  I know time apart is good but man did I miss them.

You can shop some of my favorite pieces from the weekend below.
