FoF: worst blogger ever

You guys, I am officially the worst.blogger.ever. Life has been so busy and the first thing to go is always this blog. I refuse to cut back on time with my husband, family, and friends to make time for blogging. And I also refuse to lose sleep to find time to blog. I truly hope to get back into regular blogging soon because there are so many exciting things to blog about! This will definitely happen once summer is over and I'm not traveling every weekend.

Speaking of traveling, we have been going to the beach every single weekend. My happy place! It does get tiring living out of a suitcase and driving every Friday and Sunday. We are home this weekend because I'm on call for work and I am looking forward to being super lazy, avoiding this awful heat, and doing some projects around the house.

Last weekend our best friend couple traveled from western NC all the way to the coast to spend the weekend. They were in our wedding and we were in theirs so it is always SUCH a good time when we get together! We had the best time and I was so sad to see them go :(

I am usually too scared to wear white on white or cream on white but it has been a popular trend this summer so I decided to bite the bullet. I paired this cream linen top with my white skinnies, added a Twine & Twig (duh.. outfit staple) and I loved the final look.

I've recently read these three books and they were all great! Perfect beach reads. I love finding new book suggestions so figured I'd pass my latest good reads on!

Does anyone else watch The Real Housewives of Orange County? I have been addicted to this show for years! This season it follows Meghan Edmonds' IVF journey. It's so awesome watching her go through it on national television… brings so much awareness to infertility! And another fun fact… Heather Dubrow and her husband Terry (Dr. Dubrow from the show Botched) also did IVF!

A good, old fashioned date night

Thursday, July 7, 2016

Sometimes you just need an old fashioned date night, am I right?! Last weekend we picked up my dad's convertible, got dressed up, and drove 45 minutes to my cousin's well-known restaurant, On The Square. Before checking in for our dinner reservations we stopped at the new brewery that my cousin also just opened which is right down the road from On The Square. It was such a neat place full of delicious and unique beer, puzzles, corn hole, and ping pong. With no tv's on the walls, it forces you to share a drink and engage in conversation with your date, which I just loved.

After enjoying a flight of beer we headed to dinner. I had the most delicious strawberry mojito, almost too pretty to drink! I believe that the presentation of a drink totally makes or breaks it. Throw some garnish + fresh fruit on my drink and make me feel like I'm getting my money's worth!! We shared calamari for an appetizer and it was the best I've ever had. I had shrimp & grits for my meal and hubs had lab chops. We were both equally pleased!

And no date night is complete without a stop by Krispy Kreme for hot doughnuts.

4th of July

Wednesday, July 6, 2016

Happy Wednesday!! I had yesterday and Monday off so this is a super short week for me (praise!). It was sooo hard coming home from the beach yesterday. I wanted to stay forever!

We had the best long weekend at our happy place. With a big family and 2 toddlers running around, it was equal parts relaxing and stressful. But the good type of stressful where the toddlers are climbing onto everything and there isn't one second of peace and quiet. We left the babies home one night and the grown ups went out to a yummy dinner. Besides that we stayed home and hardly changed out of our bathing suits the entire weekend. And I was an awful blogger and only took a few pictures.

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July! So very thankful for the men and women and their families who sacrifice so much so that we have the freedom to do what we want, when we want. I am hoping to start getting back into the swing of things soon with this poor blog… life has been SO crazy lately!
