Scenes From Our Weekend

I hope everyone had a good weekend!  

I snapped this picture of Frances Moon Friday morning when I was trying to get ready.  She was ready to tackle Friday in her heels and lipstick, no pants needed:)

Friday my dad and I went car shopping and I bought a new car!  My current car was about 8 years old so I was so excited to get something new.  I went with the Honda Pilot and just love it.  I really wanted something with three rows and it has lots of space.  Of course we had to celebrate with champagne afterwards.

Several people wanted to know about the fit of this dress.  It is loose and swingy.  Here is a full length view of it.  I am wearing a size small.

Had to include one picture of my new ride! 

Saturday I made the most delicious veggie sandwich.  I had lots of comments on instagram wanting the recipe so here you go:
Use whole grain bread, then layer one slice with chive cream cheese and the other piece with sun dried tomato tapenade.  Then pile on veggies,  I used tomatoes, cucumber, bell pepper, avocado, red onion, and provolone cheese. 

Another day in her bathing suit:) We have really enjoyed these Native shoes this Summer.   They are more light weight than the regular Natives, but they can still get wet and are easy to clean.  
Natives - on sale in a few color options HERE
Saturday afternoon we went to a really fun crabbing party.  There was a crabbing contest to see who could catch the most crabs followed by a party with lots of great food and drinks.  The party was held at a gorgeous house on the water.  I could not get enough of the views. 
 We managed to snap a winning family photo. 
This kid loves crabs.  Can you tell he is just a little excited to crack some open and eat them??

All the kids, they have been friends since they were babies.

Me and my girl Caycee. 
Outfit Details
These cotton shorts are the best!  I bought two pairs last year in solid colors so when I saw the print version I was so excited.  They have an elastic waist so you just pull them on and they are so comfortable!  

The most gorgeous sunset and perfect end to our evening on the water.
Sunday we went to my parent's pool to swim.
Stripes + Stripes and both are on sale.  

Sunday night we had our neighbors over for dinner.  Matt was in a fishing tournament this weekend and he didn't win but he did come home with lots of fresh fish, so we made fish tacos.  
I made a yummy Mexican Salad to go with the tacos.
I honestly just made this salad up with what I had at home:
Arugula, 5 ears of corn boiled and shucked, diced cherry tomatoes, sliced red onion, 1 jalapeno diced, 1/2 bell pepper diced, queso fresco crumbled.  
The vinaigrette was just olive oil, garlic, lime juice, and red wine vinegar. 

Have a great Monday!

Congrats on the new car! My sister has a Pilot and loves it. Love your outfit for the crab feast, those shorts look so comfy!

Ms. Natalie:

I don't know exactly how long I've been following your blog (it might've been when Frances Moon was just a dream for you!), but today's posting of your girl in lipstick, heels, sans pants - and your caption! - had me literally laugh out loud and want to comment.

While I'm here, I'd like you to know that your blog is as enjoyable through your humbleness, your sense of humour, your appreciation of wine, and your endeavour for positivity. (Many times, your memes at the end of the post are ones that I have not seen and end up making note of.)

As a non-mother, thank you for being real, not just a mother, and for continuing to share.
