46th Birthday

Happy birthday to my husband!  I returned home the night before his birthday! 
We had a yummy dinner (filets, steamed asparagus and rice pilaf) and I made him his favorite cake. 
I love cards from Papyrus.  They have the best selection cards for any occasion.

While in Charleston there was a Tommy Bahama store in our hotel.  I had already bought him this Seahawks shirt, but thought I'd buy a few more for him.

Charleston, South Carolina

I just returned from for Charleston, South Carolina.  I can't wait to return!  It was so beautiful.  We stayed the Belmont Hotel in downtown historical Charleston. 
The hotel was in the heart of the city.  Easy to walk everywhere. 
We spend time on Kiawah Island, which is a small island boarding Charleston.  It's such an amazing place.  Homes are amazing, golf course/country club are over the top and shopping is darling.
My besties friends have a home on the island.  They gave me an amazing tour of the island.  The beaches are to die for.... I want to go back and take my family. 
Me and my bestie heading out to see the beach and have lunch.
We ate lunch here.... this is the famous Ocean Course.  The golf course is one of the hardest courses but has the most amazing view of the beach and ocean.
Here is a panoramic picture I took from the deck. 
We sat here and took in the amazing views.
On the way home, we stopped by another golf course to check out the alligators that just hang out.  So creepy!  There were probably ten just hanging out on the side of the pond. 
Heading out to dinner.
We walked around the city checking out all the famous areas. 
The houses are so charming and such beautiful colors in downtown Charleston.
I was lucky enough hang out with this little stud all week! 
Right before this picture was taken we watched an alligator walk across the golf course!  So crazy, because the golfers just kept playing.  No thank you!
Thank you to my bestie and her husband for letting me come and experience your favorite place!  I can't wait to come back and visit.

Rite of Passage

Last Friday night was a rite of passage, I took Hayden to her first concert!  I surprised her with the tickets in her Easter basket.  We attended the concert with another mom and daughter friend. 
We danced, sang, laughed and but the end of the night we were exhausted!

Art Walk

Each month at Hayden's school parents volunteer and create an art lesson with her class.  I've been lucky enough to be part of the team.  It's been so fun watching the kids create different art pieces.  At the beginning of May they shared all of the students art at the Art Walk.
Hayden and her kitty cat.
Such a great night for ice cream and an Art Walk.

Mother's Day

Mother's Day I'll be in Charleston, South Carolina with my bestie.  We've always wanted to visit this together but the timing was never right.  Her husband has business there over Mother's Day weekend and we decided it would be the perfect time for me to join her as the "nanny/aunt."  I'm so excited about seeing this beautiful state! 


Here are a few things that any Mom in your life would like....

I want two rocking chairs for our front porch.  I love sitting out there and drinking my morning coffee, afternoon iced tea or evening cocktail. 


These scents are amazing!  I love the roller ball design because they make them very easy to travel with or have in your handbag.


Kendra Scott love necklaces are the perfect way to complete an outfit.  I have a white and gold one that I received as a Christmas gift.  I love it.  I'd love another one!

Bride Besties

This past weekend Katie hosted a bridal shower for her best friend.  They used our house but her and her friend planned the entire shower!  It was over the top beautiful. 
Katie and her high school best friends.
The decorations were so beautiful!  They used black, white, gold and pink as their colors.  We had so many flowers in my house to celebrate the bride.
 
The mimosa bar with yummy juice and fruit was a huge hit. 
After the shower was over we heading downtown to pick up Katie's wedding dress!  It came in early and of course she wanted to go and try it on and pick it up!  I cried, she cried and we laughed about it! Can't wait for October to be here!

Girls Weekend

This past weekend Matt had his annual spring fishing trip to Crescent Bar with his PLU buddies.  Hayden and I had a super relaxing weekend at home. 
I was off cooking duty for the weekend.  Here is what my "snacky" dinner looked like on Friday. 
We were to see Zootopia at Ipic on Saturday night. 
Sunday we chilled and watched movies.  Hayden left Nina the monkey at a friends last weekend.  She was so excited to have him back and asked if they would take a soak in the tub together.
