V-Day Wear – Day, Evening, At-Home

I’m not a big V-Day advocate or anything, but I do like to make it a little special just for the sake of mixing things up a bit with the hubby.

I’m not sure what our plans are this year, but honestly, I’d be happy curling up next to him in some comfy {but sexy} PJs with a glass of wine and a romantic comedy. I think many of us women that are in relationships would much rather go that route than deal with the restaurant waits and fuss. {But maybe that’s just me?}

Anyway, here are some suggestions for V-Day wear:

Valentine's Daytime Date

Valentine's Evening Date

ISSA London short a line dress, $865 / Oska short sleeve cropped cardigan, $100 / GUESS high heels / C. Wonder c wonder / Jon Richard white pearl necklace, $55
Valentine's Movie At Home

Hope you and your honey have a lovely Valentine’s Day. xoxo

Monday Musings

Another weekend free from work! {I could get used to this…}

Hubby and I kicked off the weekend by taking up his mom’s offer to babysit the kids for a few hours so we could have an impromptu date night.

We decided on sushi – it had been a while since either of us had enjoyed some!

And of course with our sushi…we did multiple toast over a half carafe of sake…

Saturday I got up long before the sun did to set up for our yard sale. I had been long awaiting our HOA to announce the community yard sale date as I had been stockpiling items in the garage for months. It felt good to get rid of it. We didn’t do too bad…then I hauled a load of leftovers to Goodwill and kept the bigger, valuable baby items to post on Craigslist later.

We didn’t do much else on Saturday because this little guy was down and out with a fever…

Oh, that little face…I would do anything to take that feeling away from him.

On Sunday, Breckin had a little more pep in his step, so we decided to head to Boone Hall Pumpkin Patch. We had a blast:

Hope y’all had a great weekend! xoxo

Monday Musings

I hope y’all had a splendid weekend! Aside from working at 5am on Saturday, the weekend turned out to be pretty nice…

As soon as I got home, I got changed and ready to take my baby on a bike ride. He has been asking for a couple weeks every time he sees my pink beach cruiser on the front porch and there just had not been an opportune time until this weekend.

After that, my husband surprised me with having coerced the neighbor girls into babysitting so we could go out for a date night. It has been much-needed. Here’s what I wore – I kept it simple:

Blazer / Top / Jeans / Black Pumps (not shown) *similar*

{Yes, I did recently add some highlights…still some more to do…and will be posting a tutorial on at-home highlighting soon!}

We went to Taco Mamacita on Sullivan’s Island for some fish tacos and margaritas…then we headed back to Mount Pleasant and finished off the night with a few cocktails at O’Brien’s Pub since it was on the way home. I wish I could say our first date night in a long while had been super-exciting, but I was just so exhausted from having gotten up for work at 3:30am all week, and including that day…so I told him we should try it again next weekend when I’ve had a chance to have normal sleep hours. {Two date nights within a week? Somebody pinch me!}

Sunday was nice…Jake did some more work on the project we have going on {gave you a sneak-peak here}, I played with the boys, took Breckin on a bike ride, helped Tanner with some reading homework and also got around to finishing a few projects that were looming in the half-finished state for far too long {can’t wait to share all of them with you here on the blog!}

I also finished my first week sans dairy. I won’t lie, I did have a little bit of cheese…hubby cooked lasagna one night {he had completely disregarded my dairy-free efforts}, so out of pure hunger, I ate a little. And I actually did feel the effects even after only having been dairy-free a few days. So it was probably good that I tried it so that I would know…if a few days made that big of a difference, imagine what a few weeks or longer would! I definitely feel better…less of that womanly bloat going on…so I think I’m going to stick with it. And I still plan on starting Whole30 on October 1st with Grit & Glamour, but I need to get to some serious meal-planning in order to stay on track.

Speaking of getting back on track, it’s Monday and I’m officially one week out from starting my half marathon training for the Charleston Marathon in January. I’ve been working on my running regardless, but will be sticking to a program begining October 1st. The weather has been so perfect for running – I’m loving it! This week I’m sticking to my workout plans and goals and it will start today after work with the gym. Gym bag in the Jeep and ready to go – no excuses!

Happy Monday, y’all! xoxo.

Downtown Date Night

I’m craving a sweet date night with my hubby…

Here’s what I imagine what I’d wear would look like when that happens {and it had better soon!}
