Weekend Notes 21

Cheers to it almost being friday. Ha! Sam and I are headed to a wedding on the beach this weekend and looking forward to some alone time. It's the first time in over three years. Can't wait! We are headed to Gulf Shores so if there is somewhere we need to eat/ something we have to see... I'm all ears. My friend Sally recommended The Gulf. Tried it? I found a dress to wear to the wedding that I love at Dress Up. I had never been there before and they had so many cute (and affordable) dresses.

Some little takeaways from this week:

Kristin shared the garden party that she planned for her daughter Chloe's fourth birthday (you may remember it from instagram). It was just as pretty in person! That's the cake above that she made. She colored the icing with raspberry juice and it was SO yummy.

12 photos that look like they came from a fairy tale. Those baobab trees!

I just downloaded this book to read and it's intensely thought provoking.

Tomorrow is the last day to purchase wooden prints or canvas banners from Lay Baby Lay. I love this one!

How great does Jess Connely's new site look? Makes me want a makeover. :)

Speaking of new sites... my friend Stephanie (remember her amazing tree house?!) just launched Her New Tribe. She has impeccable taste and style and the sweetest girls. You will love her.

Went shopping for bras the other day (let's just say I was still wearing a nursing bra ahem) and I went home with this one. So soft and comfy!

I wish, wish I was going to Pick with a Pro. Only a few spots left! It's going to be magical.

Pinned these AMAZING looking strawberry shortcake popsicles.

Have a great weekend!

  1. those popsicles! omg!

    the good humor strawberry shortcake popsicles are one of my long-time childhood favorites. maybe these will come close.

  2. My family has been going down to Gulf Shores/Perdido Key for 25+ years. If you haven't left yet, King Neptune's is a small, family-owned restaurant in Gulf Shores. Their crab and corn chowder is delicious and their shrimp are THE best! Also, Hope's Cheesecake is great if you need a sweet tooth fix, and Pirate Island Adventure golf is close by if you want to make a whole night of it. Hope y'all have a great time!

  3. Thank you for the popsicels link. They are looking delicious!
    Sounds like you had a great week-end :)
