I hope everyone had a great weekend. We are still in Charlotte, while our house didn't weather too much damage several power lines are down in our neighborhood in addition to some flooding. We are hoping to have power restored Tuesday and be able to get back in town then. I am sending my thoughts and prayers to all those affected by Matthew. I know many people are still without power and have had major damage to their houses, cars and property. We were lucky enough to have family nearby to stay with but I know everyone was not that lucky and many of you have been in and out of hotels.
This is picture Matt sent us of our backyard, lots of limbs and debris that thankfully did not land on our house. Lots of yard work is in our future.
The kids have really enjoyed being out of school and spending time with their cousins.
Friday my mom let the kid's get out all her Halloween decorations and decorate her house. We used a few for Happy Hour. This red wine is a constant favorite. Oh that snack mix pictured below is from Reid's and it is a must if you are in Charlotte!
I had several questions about my lip and nail color on my instastories.
Also several of you wanted to know about my glasses, they are from the website Coastal eyewear and the brand is Joseph Marc. I actually found the exact same pair HERE.
A closer look at my nails, I love the green for Fall. Ignore the bad paint job I painted them myself and I can't see- still waiting on my new contacts to arrive:)
Friday night my sister and I went out for a girl's only dinner. We were laughing that the last time just the two of us went out was probably 10 years ago before either of us were married! We snapped this picture before we headed out.
We headed to Rooster's one of my favorite spots in Charlotte. The food is always on point.
Taylor talked me into ordering bone marrow which made me want to gag but the kale salad was really good. We also love Rooster's mac and cheese it is the stuff dreams are made of.
One more pic of the two of us.
Several of you wanted the recipe for Cheesy Olives. They are so easy and so darn good.
|| C H E E S Y O L I V E S ||
- 1/2 cup margarine
- 2 cups shredded cheddar
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- green olives
Let margarine and shredded cheese come to room temperature. Add in flour and salt and mix. Mold around each olive and place on baking sheet. Place in fridge for at least 30 minutes or longer. Bake at 350 degrees 15 minutes.
The next morning Bojangles was in order.
Saturday was super dreary in Charlotte as the out skirts of Matthew brought lots of rain and wind. We spent most of the day inside. These are the leggings I went back to buy another color in I love them so much.
Sunday we took the kids' to a small pumpkin patch.
What I wore:
These over the knee boots are the best and on sale until midnight tonight. Use code FRIENDS25 to save 25%. I wore them Friday night with my dress as well. The color goes with everything. They also come in black and burgundy. I found they ran TTS.
Have a good Monday.
