Scenes From Our Weekend

Happy Tuesday y'all!  I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July!  As I mentioned Friday we have been in Figure Eight for the weekend.  We are having such a great time here.

Friday morning Sterling finished his last day of nature camp.  This camp was so awesome we will be doing it again next year.  He was so excited everyday to tell me about all the cool stuff he saw and learned about.  We signed up through the Charleston Museum for any locals interested.

After camp we packed up and hit the road.
What I wore for the drive/first day.
The kids were super excited to arrive and check out our house and amazing view for the week!
Several of you asked about Frances Moon's blouse- you can find it here and also in a dress version.
Our deck and view is pretty amazing.

We have been spending lots of time at the beach swimming and building lots of sand castles.

Love that my sweet Sterling is such a Mama's boy.

Loving this off shoulder dress with straps.  It is cotton, has pockets and is so comfy!  I wore it for dinner one night over the weekend.
We have all spent lots of time cuddling with cousin Rutledge.  
and cousin Maxton.

We celebrated my Dad's birthday over the weekend.  So special we were all able to be together.
I wore my Mara Hoffman dress that is now on sale.

We always love the 4th of July in Figure Eight.  They do a fun parade and then have a party with jump castles, face painting, food and a band.  We were able to watch some of the parade from our front deck.
We left Rutledge at home with my parents and just took the older kids to the party.
The highlight for Sterling and Frances was the face painting station.

That night we grilled out and watched fireworks.  Wearing blue and white- just missing the red!
I am wearing a size one in this dress for reference.
We couldn't end the night without sparklers.

 We love DD and Big Poppie.

Thoughts For Friday + Best July 4th Sales

TGIF and Hurray for the long weekend!  We are off to Figure Eight with my entire family for the next week.  It is one of my favorite spots.   Sterling and Frances are at such a fun age this year and they are so excited about building sandcastles, swimming and playing on the beach!

Frances Moon's obsession with lipstick continues.  Take a close look she opened up every single lipstick I own trying to find the perfect shade of hot pink.  Girl knows what she likes.

Frances Moon and I twinning in our Mara Hoffman.  I bought these probably 2 years ago on clearance and her dress finally fits her!  

Right before we left for St Maarten we made one of my favorite salads- Chopped BLT.  It had honestly been almost a year since I last made it last and I forgot how amazing it is.  Such a great Summer Salad.
My friend Ann originally painted these paintings for our bedroom but we got a new rug and they no longer matched so I gave them to my sister.  She hung them in my nephew Rutledge's nursery and they look so good!!  You can check out some of Ann's other work HERE, she is super talented.
Speaking of Rutledge, how precious is he??   Gives me major baby fever, but at least I can get my snuggles with him.

I tried on this dress recently at Anthropologie and now I am wishing I bought it.  Loved the print.

I mentioned before that I read both The Weekenders and The Nest in St Maarten.  I highly recommend both.  I am now halfway through The Nightingale and loving it.  I was hesitant to read a book based around the war because I usually like a light hearted Summer read but it is so good so far.

A fun new appetizer to try is skewers with Mozzarella, Peaches and Basil.  Like a Caprese salad but with ripe peaches.  Really light and tasty.  This would be great drizzled with a balsamic glaze too.

Love this.
