Scenes From Our Memorial Day Weekend

I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend.  I am always so thankful for all those men and women who fearlessly serve and protect our country everyday.   Land of the free because of the brave. 

A few snaps from the past few days.
A little happy hour spread from Thursday night when we hosted our neighbors Rick and Gary for dinner.  This Sauvignon Blanc is a new favorite.  Super light and crisp.
We just adore Rick and Gary.  If you ever need a photographer they rock, they snap my blog pictures often we always have a blast!
What I wore:
Tee Shirt Dress (use code WEEKEND to save 30%) | Necklace | Sandals | Tote

Friday I spent the day organizing my jewelry in this new acrylic case.  It is so nice to have it all organized and in one spot.

This dress I ordered last week arrived.  I wanted to wear it over the weekend but of course all it did was rain.  It is made out of really light cotton and it is fully lined with a built in bra.  I just love the bright, bold colors. 

That night we took the kids to the yacht club because we knew the weather was going to be yucky the rest of the weekend.  So happy we got to spend one evening outside enjoying the beautiful weather. 

I am wearing the Mara Hoffman Swing dress I shared over the weekend.  It is still on sale!

We managed to catch a stunning sunset.

Saturday morning Sterling and I went on a quick run before the down pour started.  This beach is about a mile from our house so we frequently run (well I run and Sterling rides his bike) here and stop to look for shells and shark's teeth.
That afternoon I took the kids to see the Angry Birds movie.  I have to admit I was dreading seeing that movie I really don't like the angry birds but I was pleasantly surprised it was really cute.

Sterling had a friend spent the night that night and I snapped the cutest picture of them in bed.  It almost looked like they were holding hands while they slept.

Breakfast at our favorite spot Bagel Nation the next morning.
I love the Denver Bagel.

That night we headed to my parents for happy hour with a few of their friends who were in town visiting and then to dinner with our friends.
I made this easy app:  Prosciutto + Melon + Mozzarella.

My mom snapped the best picture of us, I swear it is rare that we are all looking at the camera.  This one is a framer!
What I wore:
Blouse | Necklace  (if you love local the blouse and necklace came from Beckett Boutique)
Monday morning I tried out another new recipe from Chrissy Teigan's cookbook.  French Toast Casserole with Salted Frosted Flakes.  It was good but so rich and heavy.  We did however love the salted frosted flakes on top! 
I also wanted to share one of my favorite cover-ups is back in stock this year.  I packed it last year for our trip to St Maarten and I will be packing it again.   I can't believe in 3 short weeks we will be back there!

Have a great day!  I am off to the gym and starting a detox diet before our vacation- too much indulging lately!  Lots of clean eating ahead:)

How does the swing dress fit? I'm pregnant but won't be at the largest stage during the summer. Should I stick with my regular size or size up? Thanks!!

So nice to be just a mile from the beach! I am hosting some gals for a Stella & Dot garden party Thursday night and might have to try your melon skewers!
