Scenes From Our Weekend

Two more Mondays til school starts back (not that I am counting or anything).  Today the huge Lily sale starts but confession- would you believe I don't own one single Lily piece?   Others look cute in it but it just isn't my style- so happy shopping to all you Lily fans hope you snag some goodies. You can shop the Sale HERE, after 8am:)

I have been working with GDC Home to find some fabric for our wingback chairs.  I love that they will let you take the whole bolt of fabric home it makes such a big difference.  I was thinking a  big scale pattern til I brought this home.  Gorgeous fabric but not right in our room.

Now we are thinking of doing a solid with some brass nail heads.  Classic look then I can jazz it up with fun pillows.  Narrowed it down to these 4 although the tan is out too much neutral with my walls and sofa.

I have been obsessed with Blend Juice Bar in Mt Pleasant.  If you have not been you must check it out.  Their green juice is so good!

I am also obsessed with my new ankle JBrand jeans, seen in the above picture too.  They are the perfect transition jeans from Summer to Fall.

Friday night we out to dinner with some good friends.  We tried out Big Belly Kitchen and Tap House a new restaurant that opened right down from our house.  It was amazing.  All the food was delicious.

 I had the braised beef tacos, fancy fries, BBQ Chips, and Arugula salad.  If you live on James Island you gotta try this place!

Saturday morning Matt watched Frances and I took Sterling to the pool.  It is rare I get one on one time with him these days so it was so nice to have some time just the two of us.

Saturday afternoon we headed to a Birthday Party for one of Sterling's friends.
There was a jump slide, snow cone machine, and fire truck!  Sterling was in hog heaven.

Sunday Sterling and I headed to church together, for some more one on one time.

Sunday after church I took the kids to the park for a lunch picnic per Sterling's request.  I was eating my salad and looked over and saw this, it was the sweetest thing ever.  Sibling love at its finest.

This look on Frances Moon's face was priceless. She is like Mom no more pictures, I am not smiling.

Sunday night I tried out a new recipe from Callies Biscuits and Southern Traditions Cookbook.  Springtime Succotash with Bacon paired with some lobster tails and Rose.  Delish Sunday dinner.

A bunch of Rag and Bone stuff got marked down at Saks- some great deals!

Happy Monday.

Are either of the 2 blue fabrics a velvet?? If so, do that. If not, I still like the idea of a blue on that chair. And I cannot get over Frances' face either. That is too cute!!

Can we talk about how delicious those fries look?! Yummm! And I love the idea of the blue fabrics, velvet could be pretty in there too and it's still super durable! Can't wait to see what you do!

Looks like a fun weekend! We went to that restaurant for lunch on Saturday. I had the KFC bahn mi. It was good.

Nat said...

I think the top left is my favorite-love the idea of blue with a nailhead trim on the chairs. Those fries look so freaking good-yum! Glad you got some one on one time with Sterling.

So sweet that you and Sterling got some one on one time this weekend. I also am loving the picnic picture of both of them together!

That pic of your two little ones on the picnic blanket is the most precious thing! How sweet!
