Friday Highfive

It's a beautiful Friday in Charleston!
Here's a highfive for making it through the week.
Picked up a cinnamon broom at Trader Joe's yesterday.  The house smells like Fall!
This bearded dragon is a regular at the West Ashley Farmer's Market.  We went to say hi and he kept running towards EB.  She was (rightly) terrified.  
This is my favorite boxed macaroni and cheese.  I made it with a succotash to go with K's pork butt last Saturday.
Library Fun:
The Clemson Master gardeners had a fun craft for the kids this week, nature masks!
3rd Birthday invites are out!
Have a great weekend!

Our Weekend

We had a nice weekend!
On Saturday K slow smoked a pork butt while I took the kids to a school friends' birthday party.  And then we stayed up late playing in the backyard.
 Sunday we made our debut as a family of 4 at church.
 And then celebrated a new baby girl coming soon to our squad.
 And just this morning, I got to catch up with a college friend!
Have a great week!

Hurricane Dorian

A week ago today we felt the effects of Hurricane Dorian here in Charleston.  While nothing in comparison to the damage in the Abacos, it was a storm worth stressing over.  We stayed here and hunkered down with the kids.  We were without power briefly and lost a shutter on the house.  We had a limb come down and spark over the high voltage power lines in our front yard, which resulted in a late night fire department visit.  But overall, we were safe and it's great to be back to our routine this week.  I pray for those affected whose "normal" is forever changed.
Hurricane Snack:  I made these homemade bang bang shrimp on the recommendation of April at Smidge of This.
Couch snuggles:
EB colored this solar system mobile while we were stuck inside:
Friday morning clean up:
K worked tirelessly on the yard. We are so grateful for him!

I don't know if we'll stay in town for the next one.  It's a whole new ballgame with young children.  I hope you and your loved ones were safe.

Back to School!

 We're back, baby!  I am looking forward to quiet mornings with little sister...and watching my EB grow and learn and have FUN!
Cousin W is also at the same school this year, which is so fun and gives me the perfect excuse to visit with EB's teachers from last year!

Labor Day Weekend 2019

 I hope y'all had a nice Labor Day weekend!  Here in Charleston we've been watching and worrying over Hurricane Dorian's track.  But we still managed to have some fun over the long weekend...
Saturday was the Gamecocks first game of the season. 

Sunday my parents watched the girls and we had happy hour at Gene's. 
We don't get out much: 

Last night we grilled filet mignon...Didn't want it to go bad if the freezer goes out ;)

Today feels like a normal Tuesday.  K is at work but we are expecting bad weather on Thursday.
Prayers to the Bahamas!!
