Friday Highfive

FriYAY!  Here's a highfive for getting through the week!

Last week I had a much needed Girls Night Out.  We tried the new Cane Rhum Bar on East Bay Street and I was pleasantly surprised.  I expect to fall into a tourist trap anytime I try somewhere new downtown but the food was delicious (I had the tipsy chicken with the coconut rice) and reasonable.  The mojito was pricey and not worth it in my opinion (so much ice!), and I will stick to my wine if we go again.

We are headed to an Oyster roast on Sullivan's tonight, and it is 80 degrees outside.
I picked up this fun jacket on the Belk Clearance rack a couple weeks ago with tonight in mind, but I suppose it will stay in the closet with the hopes that we will have at least ONE wintry day this year. Please Lord let me turn off my AC in February, I beg you!

Quick/Easy/TASTY meal alert.  I added a pound of shrimp and a couple tablespoons of our favorite teriyaki sauce and dinner was served.  I am putting this on the regular rotation going forward. These stir fry blends are frequently BOGO, we also love the pepper and onion mix, perfect with this chicken sausage.

Little lifeguard on duty!
I had to get creative on Monday when my aunt came over to help me chalk paint the dining room table.  EB did fairly well in this shady set up, but I still can't claim much painting was done on my part. Thank you Aunt Jerri for your help painting my table for me :)  I am going to try my hand at distressing and waxing it tomorrow.

In other home news, we are finally getting to work on K's office.  This was the one room left untouched before baby girl's arrival and we just got the blinds up and the art on the wall this week.  I am grateful for the layout of this house giving K his own "man space" and I think it is looking great so far!

I hope y'all have a great weekend!

Friday Highfive

Happy Friday!  I hope your week was good.
Here's a highfive for getting through...

Little Valentines for EB's girlfriends.  In case you were wondering, I refer to my baby by her initials on the blog so that her name will not be "google-able" now or in the future.  You just never know these days...

Oh Alfie, ya killing me!  Between how loud he snores, his stink eye when he doesn't get to walk any further... pooch needs to cut me some slack!  It really feels like I have 2 babies sometimes.

Avondale strolling, love that we live so close.   
 Interesting community meeting coming up this week:

I want this rug SO BAD for my kitchen, but it's $400 and I can't swing that.
It's taken me so long to find anything close to my vision, so flipping over the pricetag was painful on this one!

Our Weekend

A quick recap of last weekend coming at you this Wednesday afternoon.
Hope y'all are having a great week!

On Friday we grabbed cheapo Mexican before calling it an early night.  EB was more preoccupied with batting her eyes at a group of Citadel cadets at the table across from us than taking a pic with her momma:
On Saturday morning we strolled over to a cul-de-sac yard sale in our neighborhood.
 I picked up this miniature peacock chair for fifty cent...
And this cute little pillow for the glider in the nursery.  I haven't shared photos of this glider before, but it was a new purchase about a week after EB was born.  I didn't want to spend the money not knowing if I would really use it but quickly realized HECK YES.  New glider is a MUST for new moms.
We grilled out Saturday night, some steaks from the freezer that were a Christmas gift.

On Sunday we went to Hometeam.  My cute lunch dates:
Ended the weekend with leftover steak in the form of tacos.  YUM.
We also watched the movie Burnt which I'd highly recommend.  
And that's a wrap!
:)
