Happy Birthday Emerson Grace!

Life

I had to work on Thursday, but my mom was able to be at home to meet the carpet cleaners and mosquito guy so that my house was ready for the birthday party (and the market…). Work days always fly by, but I tried to stop and think about my labor and visited Emerson in the nursery IMG_5970.jpg IMG_5971.jpg IMG_5975.jpg IMG_5986.jpg

Garden Wedding in Cville

Travel

Hello, hello. I’m sorry it’s been a while. There’s a lot going on, which I’ll tell you about soon. As I’m sure many of you saw on social media, my sister’s wedding was last weekend! We had a fabulous time, and I’m thankful our travel went smoothly! We arrived in Charlottesville on Friday, and had a lovely cocktail party with the family that evening. Saturday, we ate a fun lunch on the downtown mall, and by late afternoon, it was…

Weekend in Ojai

Travel

Hello! We had the privilege of attending a wedding in the beautiful Ojai, California this past weekend. We stayed at the Ojai Valley Inn and the resort was stunning! I think I was so focused on packing for this trip plus all the wedding festivities, that I wasn’t anticipating how gorgeous the surrounding area would be. Expectations exceeded. We arrived on Thursday afternoon, and there was a welcome party at a neat little picnic shop. Everything was outdoors and the…

La Jolla Bachelorette

Pregnancy Travel

Do you get a friends baby moon too? If so, I had an excuse to take one for my bff’s bachelorette party last weekend. Sadly, I can’t uphold my duty as a bridesmaid since the wedding is so close to my due date. Matt headed to Nantucket for a guys weekend, so we each got one more ‘party’ before we sit in our house for at least 6 months:) I can’t say I’ll miss getting on a plane. We rented…

NC Shower

Durham Restaurants Pregnancy

Hello! It’s been a while since I’ve posted, as I’ve been out and about before I hunker down for these last few months. Matt and I traveled back to NC for a quick visit with my parents and a shower put on by the lovely ladies of the church I grew up attending. On Thursday, my parents took us out to the new Durham Hotel’s rooftop bar, and we met up with my good friend, Brooke and her husband! My,…

Scenes from NC

Life Pregnancy Travel

Hi friends, We are back at home in Texas after a lovely trip to visit friends and family in North Carolina, both at our alma mater and at the beach. As we traveled back from the coast to Charlotte to catch our flight, we learned of the horrifying news in Orlando on Sunday. It’s such a sad time for our country, and it’s disheartening that things only seem to be getting worse. We also learned of my dear aunt Pat…

Spring Weekends

Amazing Restaurants

We’ve had a fun couple of weekends over here. First, we had a local wedding to attend, which is such a rare occasion. I loooove going to weddings in town because it makes the whole event much more relaxed when you don’t have to travel. Our friends Alex and Akshay got married right around the corner from our house at the beautiful Robert E. Lee park. Though it was a chilly day out, it was absolutely gorgeous! The ceremony was…

Reliving the 90’s

Clothing

I had a blast last weekend celebrating my friend Liz’s 30th! It’s such a fun year of big birthday parties. A bunch of friends flew in for the occasion, and after a mimosa brunch on Saturday, we got blow-outs in preparation for the event. The theme was 90’s, and this is what my stylist came up with. Apparently, it was inspired by Married With Children, which I’ve actually never seen. Afterwards, we ended up going next door to grab drinks…

Boys Weekend in Hill Country

Travel

Matt has been planning a reunion of his college friends in Texas for almost a year! I’ve gotten to know the wives over the years, and it makes for a really fun group. It was a weird weekend, because of the sad news abroad. I wanted to be present, but my thoughts were with the people of Paris often, and we were glued to the TV on Friday. We rented a house on Lake Travis through TurnKey – they actually…
