Friday Highfive

Hey y'all!  I feel like I've got so much to catch up on around here! 
Here is a highfive for getting through this week...and on to a long holiday weekend!

My absence the last week or so is partly due to being busy "teaching" VBS last week.  I was the Music Leader and it was so much fun!  My girl had a blast hanging in the nursery and also being mommy's assistant with the big kids.

Haps around the house.
Let's see.  We ate our first homegrown tomato last week.  K sliced it up with salt and pepper and it was the tastiest!
We had a food truck park on our street last Friday... and dinner was served!
Also, a tree fell in the backyard last Saturday night and we had to have it removed this week.
  Summer fun with friends.  
We have had a great time getting out in the sun and enjoying Charleston.
Pool Days:
Pineapple Fountain picnic:
I am pulling together some fun stuff for my gf's Bachelorette at the end of the month (July!?!)
I am still looking for a pizza float and perhaps a hotdog.  ;)
Oh and this is the dress I am ordering for the wedding in September...we were given free reign in shades of purple.  We'll see how it looks!
Not five, but SIX TEETH!!!
And currently cutting molars.  Lawd help me.
I hope y'all have a fantastic holiday weekend!!

Best Day Ever.
EBN, We simply could not love you more!!!!!

Our Weekend

Hey y'all!
Some snaps of the haps this weekend going up...on a Tuesday.
Friday I did the grocery shopping with my girl. We also swung by Barberitos and picked up burritos (and queso!!) for dinner.  I shared on my instastories (@lauralnielson) that we tried the Costco prepared margaritas and they were perfect for our Friday night fiesta.
On Saturday my mom and I took EB out to the mall for a little shopping trip.  
Omg, someone please pinch me: 
Saturday night we grilled out.
On Sunday we were out the door to church...
We had lunch on the roof at Carolina Alehouse.  EB slept the whole time...this hasn't happened in months!!
Then we took a stroll through Marion Square and browsed the Spoleto Tents.
For dinner I made quick and easy tacos and we hung out on the porch...this June weather has been wonderful, albeit a little wet.
I hope y'all had a great one!

Friday Highfive

Happy Friday!!
Here is a highfive for getting through the week!
EB's Baptism is next weekend!  We are really looking forward to it.  It's especially fitting that it's happening on Father's Day because she sparkles brightest for her daddy.
On Wednesday I made Pad See Ew for dinner and it.was.epic.
I went to the Asian Grocery store to get a few ingredients and followed this recipe.
The only change I will make next time is to add the broccoli sooner, because it was still basically raw and I removed it.
Front porch sprucing.  
I painted our bistro set navy this week and added the lantern.  Remaining on my list:  cut back the azalea that is covering part of the porch, punchy cushions for the chairs, and a wreath.
I took a chance and ordered this top from Shein last month.  It took a while to come in, but overall I'm happy with it.  Quality is on par with price.  I have been curious about the cheap clothes for years and I've noticed several bloggers pitching them recently so I figured I'd give it a try.  Now I just need a fun date night occasion to wear this!
Don't let this sweet (fake) smile fool you, gf was NOT HAVING library storytime yesterday and we had to leave halfway through.  
 Doesn't she look like she's ready to punch someone?!
Chill out, chick :)
Hope y'all have a great weekend!

Summer Days, Driftin' Away

The days are longer and have started drifting together over here.  I had to go back and check in on my last few posts to see where I left off...
So they had a little graduation ceremony at the Little Gym a couple weeks ago.  Too cute.
We have been trying different solids.  I ordered EB a scrambled egg at Bagel Nation and gf was like Gimme that everything bagel, momma!
Pool days...Lots of fun.  We joined Kristina and Emma at a swanky pool that had it's own putting green....perfect spot to let the babes go...
This girl is ON THE MOVE.
Crawling everywhere!!  It is the cutest thing I've ever seen.
A few snaps from Memorial Day weekend...
Aquarium chillin'
Visit with Opa
Bringing it around to this weekend...
EB turned 8 months on Saturday!!!
Here is the darling outfit of mine that I put her in for the "photoshoot"
And then a family cookout on Sunday.
That catches us up!
I've got a few fun updates for the Friday Highfive this week.
Stay tuned.
