Work wear

I'd love for this to be the last time I share tights and winter clothes for a while!! 

(wishful thinking, right?)









I feel like I need to explain this next one because it's a little outside of my normal realm of "looks". Gap.com tricked me into buying a funky leopard print/neon'ish final sale dress (tricked me with little tiny print that didn't show up until I was on my check out page and I hastily submitted my order, as I'm so used to just adding things to my Gap and ON orders willy nilly thanks for free shipping and returns. I do a lot of trying on and sending back)


The fit is a little loose and long but after I accessorized it up, I didn't think it was too bad. Gave me a chance to break out the gray tights I bought forever ago that hadn't gotten a wear year.

Five on Friday

Happy rainy Friday yall!


One. 

This little swinging video of Lawter makes me smile. I watch it a few times throughout my work day and it makes me happy.

Two. 

My little lucky leprachaun was too busy on St. Patrick's Day morning to sit still for a picture. This was the best I could do. A baby in a cardigan... I die. 





Three. 

I got to meet one of my best gal pal's sweet new TWIN girls this week!


Camden and Riley are two weeks old today and I can't wait for them to get bigger (much bigger than their teeny tiny 4'ish pounds they're at now!!) so they can play with Lawtie girl and grow up being buddies like me and their mama!


Four. 

Warmer weather makes me want Mexican. Like allllll the time. 

Nachos and our favorite stuffed sweet potatoes have made the menu this week. 


Five. 

My sneaky husband got me involved in his office March Madness pool so that now I'm constantly checking games and my bracket. He knows I'm competitive and that he'll get more Sports Center time this way. Stupid one point games yesterday had me all fired up. He thinks it's hilarious.

Bath time cuteness

I love the miscellaneous bath time shots we take of Lawter.

So happy and sweet and innocent, just a baby playing in the tub.

Here are a few from the collection.

Five on Friday

One. 

Yay for another plan free weekend! It was so much fun to spontaneously skip town last weekend so now I'm looking forward to sticking close to home and getting some things done this weekend.



Two.

We had homemade happy hour for dinner last Friday night. We may be doing a repeat tonight. 




Three. 

Mommy for the win.

Intentional? Don't know, don't care. 

I love it and play it on repeat.


Four. 

These. Holy deliciousness.


I've made these Caramel Heavenlies twice now and they're super easy and if you keep a semi-stocked baking pantry like I do, you probably already have everything you need to make them.


Five. 

Last Friday's naptime.

Winter Beach Weekend


Our little family made a super random and super fun last minute decision to get out of town this past weekend. 

Saturday morning I got home from torture class and Anthony asked what we were doing the rest of the weekend. I shrugged my shoulders and started gathering laundry from around the house when he asked, "Wanna go to the beach?"

Ummm YES!

We dashed around the house packing up bags for us and baby and hit the road, to visit one of our favorite places - a place that holds so much history and so many great memories for us- the Outer Banks! 


I can never remember what I've shared on here that happened pre-blog, but long story short, Anthony and I met and fell in love in the Outer Banks and lived and worked there for a bit post college. We haven't been back to the beach together in several years. 

I'll go ahead and admit that we took our baby to a lot of bars, but that's just kind of what you do in the obx when you want to visit friends : ) 


Brewing Station, Lucky 12, Tortuga's, Sam and Omie's- we got in a lot of favorites in a short amount of time. (We missed my beloved Mama Kwan's seasonal reopening by 5 days- booooooo). It was so much fun to catch up with so many friends around our old hangouts. 





Sunday was the most gorgeous day for outdoor strolling and we got to put our feet in the sand, breathe in some salty ocean air and enjoy some glorious sunshine. 






Coffee catch up date with Meredith, Brandon, and Lawtie's new little buddy, Fin!

 


Gorgeous sunrise over the ocean from our hotel room





Side story: Lawtie had a baby cold over the weekend with a runny nose and woke up SCREAMING mad at midnight then at 4 am. I was so scared we were going to get kicked out of our hotel room. It was awful. Playing with/snuggling this dasani water bottle was the only thing that calmed her down and we cracked up in the morning when she was all snuggled up with it still. 

Poor thing. Later in the day, we noticed her ear was dripping dark liquid and sure enough, another ear infection. Ugh. 


Didn't stop her from putting her boot on her hand and waving to everyone at breakfast with it. What. a. HAM!


hehe


A sweet, refreshing weekend getaway with my favorite people.
