Scenes from the Weekend

Happy Monday Everyone!  Did you all have a good weekend?

If you follow me on Instagram then you saw I shared our painted cabinets on Friday. We decided to just paint the cabinets white and leave the brick alone. We love it!  As I mentioned before the beige walls are staying the same for now and the gold fireplace doors will be coming off soon. The previous owner graciously left us the TV above the fireplace (I don't love it but it's so practical for us right now) so we are still working on the cords situation.  I finally decorated the shelves a little bit this weekend so I will share more later this week. Shelf styling is hard!


I picked up this Lilly Pulitzer Tabbie Tank last week and I've been wearing  it non stop. Their tees are so soft. I'm also loving all the blues in their new line of prints


Friday night Kyle got home from work early so we went to our favorite local restaurant for happy hour and dinner. I cheated on my diet to enjoy some delicious Moscow mules and a big fluffy soft pretzel. #soworthit


Matthew loves getting to join all  of us at the table now and getting a bite of everyone's food.


On Saturday we ventured out to a Touch a Truck event. It was the first time we had ever been to one and Miller was in heaven.  If you have a little boy look for one in your area if you haven't been yet. Ours was at a local church and admission was free with a donation to their food pantry.





 My momiform on repeat this summer. T-shirt, shorts, and sandals. 
White tee (old but similar here) //J.Crew Factory 3in chino // Tory Burch Miller Sandal (old color but linked to similar ones)

Saturday night Kyle and I decided to have a date night after the kids went to bed.  We ate crabs and drank beers on the back patio while we reminisced and looked at old pictures. It was so much fun and so good for us.  Sometimes the day to day of parenting makes us forget who we used to be.

This is my favorite old picture of us. It was taken 10 years ago in August in OBX. I always wonder if those 23 year olds could have ever imagined what life would look like 10 years later.

Here's to a good week ahead of us and one of the last ones before summer is over!

  4. Looks like a wonderful weekend! I love the idea of a post-bedtime date. We eat dinner together as a family every night but maybe should start doing one night alone a week, after all kids are asleep. Preferably outside under the stars! Your mom uniform looks pretty cute and I love that LP tank!

  6. What a fun weekend! No babies for me and the hubs yet, but some of my favorite date nights are just spent at home. It's so nice to take a breather from the everyday crazy and reconnect :) I love going back and looking at pictures from when we first started dating-- after 8 years, we looked like such babies back then! Have a great week!

  16. Shelf styling is SO hard – that was one of the last décor tasks that we finished because I wanted to get it just right. I got a Lilly tank recently too and feel the same way – so comfortable for these overly hot end of summer days we’ve been having here! The date night on the deck sounds like the perfect way to relax!

  19. Love how the bookcases turned out! I think leaving the brick was the right choice. Sometimes those simple date nights at home can be the best for reconnecting.

  23. Shelf styling - especially around electronics is something I haven't mastered yet! I LOVE the white built ins, and they look fantastic with the brick fireplace! - Dorrie @ Rt 1 US 1
