Weekend Recap!

Hi Friends! Last week I spent the week with my mom in Boone & worked from there all week. It was SO nice to be there. The weather was cold cool & we had some really pretty days. Really the main objective of the trip was to meet my mom & dad's new puppy Lincoln. Just warning you that this post will be puppy picture heavy.

I have always loved the Boone & Blowing Rock area. I grew up visiting there & I just love the charm of Blowing Rock and the college town atmosphere of Boone. It really is the BEST place & awesome for exploring (hiking, fishing, eating & shopping).

I was pretty much tied to my desk during the day working but we got out a little bit and of course played with Lincoln until he could barely keep his eyes open.

We made Banana Pudding one night & it was sooooo good. This one is made with Chessmen Cookies instead of Nilla Wafers. Try it. You won't be disappointed. You can find the recipe on my Pinterest here.

We hit up the Local Lion for coffee and donuts one morning. The donuts were great & the coffee was just ok to me. I would definitely go back though!

 That next weekend, my grandparents were there as well as my dad and sister. We did a little shopping at Mast General Store in Valle Crucis, an all time favorite of mine. I love the creakiness when you go in of the wood floors and the rocking chairs outside. Don't forget to get yourself a glass Coke and a little candy on your way out.

We ate lunch right down the street at a new to me place called "Over Yonder." Do yourself a favor and go. This place was oozing with charm and the food fantastic! My sister and I split the Affogato dessert and it was SO yummy. So good I forgot to get a picture.

We ended the weekend with corn hole of course, rounds of Speak Out, and more puppy snuggles.


It was so nice to get to see my family. I wish that B had been there but alas he had to work and take care of our pup. I will say, it was nice to get back to him on Sunday. I've got some planned outfit posts coming up that I'm excited about and hope to shoot those this week or weekend for y'all! Be sure to check back!!


Five on Friday: Life Lately

Happy Friday everyone!! This week has gone by pretty quickly for me. Thank goodness!

Last weekend we celebrated one of my best friend's with her bachelorette weekend in Asheville. It was SO much fun. We took in the sights of Sierra Nevada Brewing & The Grove Park Inn, drank lots of wine, and laughed a ridiculous amount. When you get all of us together, it's just crazy. Here are two of my favorite pictures from the weekend.

I have been watching Downton Abbey for a while now. Yes, I am behind. Y'all, I just can't get over it. I am head over heels in love with like every character. I think my favorite is the relationship between the grandmothers & Lady Isobel Crawley. Their quick little comments just kill me.

Spring is practically here. I am loving the warm weather and the spring clothes coming out now. Give me ALL the blush. Here is a little arrangement I made this week. All the flowers from my HEB...white roses & pink & white ranunculus.

Here are some things I am really loving lately. Can I just add ALL of them to my cart please?

St Patrick's is next Friday. What are your plans? I can't remember the last time we had it on a weekend. It will for sure be lots of fun. I fly out next Saturday to stay with my mom so I won't be doing too much that Friday...but green will be on the agenda.
