My Current Favorites- All on Sale!

Handbag: Kate Spade | Top: Piko | Sandals: Jack Rogers | Sweater: JCrew | Striped Sandals: Boden

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!  We had a great family day yesterday.  We tried a new taco place which was really good then went to Pullen Park to let Mary-Grace play and get some energy out.  She rode the carousel for the first time and cried, poor thing.  We think the different animal rides scared her.  She also got to ride the train again, check out the baby swings and kiddie playground which made the trauma of the carousel all better.  Our little one year old sure has a lot more energy than us!  Today we're doing a fantasy football draft... the second one I've been talked into by Josh.  Hopefully I won't completely stink this season.

As far as my favorites, the Piko tee is sooo soft and the Jack Rogers Lauren sandals didn't have to be broken in for me. The other items are just on my wish list and I think the Boden sandals are fun!

My Current Favorites- Fall Transition Pieces

Shirt: JCrew (Love both colors available)  | Denim Dress: Boden | Jacket: Old Navy | Sweater: Zara (also in black) | Flat: Yosi Samra (on sale!) | Boot: Sam Edelman (many color choices)

I know it's little early to be transitioning to fall but I can't help think about it since I'm tired of the heat and there are now fall clothes showing up everywhere.  Now, I just have to save up for these!

As of lately...

Happy Tuesday!  We've had a couple of busy weeks around here.  We got back from our trip to SC and then spent a few days unpacking and getting ready for Mary-Grace's birthday party the following weekend.  That same weekend we attended a baby shower for our good friends.  They had their baby boy a little early and he was born the day after her birthday!  We got to go visit them Sunday and I held him as long as I could.  He's so tiny and adorable.  I forgot what it was like to hold a newborn after holding Mary-Grace. We've also been staying busy with doctor appointments, Josh having food poisoning (thank goodness he's better now!), and catching up with stuff around the house.

Our trip to Charleston was relaxing and fun... just what we needed.  We rented a house in Folly Beach with my mom, stepdad, grandparents, aunt, uncle, cousin, and my aunt's sister. My uncle, cousin, aunt and her sister all live in Georgia so we thought it'd be a good place to meet in the middle.  Josh and I had never been to Charleston or Folly Beach so we were excited to see everything.  We've also never been on a vacation with everyone before so we were looking forward to spending time with them. We went to the aquarium, city market (which going on a 100 degree day wasn't that great of an idea), the beach of course, and toured around looking at historical sites.  I've posted a few pictures on Instagram of what we did/saw and a few more below.  We also had a lot of relaxation and down time... taking naps, playing cards, cooking, etc.  Josh and I were also able to get a date in since we had several babysitters.  We went to lunch at Husk, which I highly recommend if you happen to go to Charleston.  We love having Mary-Grace with us but it was nice to not rush to eat or worry about keeping her occupied.  Charleston is such a beautiful city and I definitely want to go back again!
