Happy Weekend

I found a fab new upbeat song by Max called, "Mug Shot" which seemed totally appropriate for this weekend!  My two besties from FOREVER.....Kippy and Megan are coming into town for a meet up in Charlotte!  Love these girls, our meet ups may be getting more sporadic, but every time we get together, it's as if no time has passed-that is a testament to true friends who know you sooo well!!  Cheers to a fabulous weekend!!!

Canvas Totes

If you've been reading this blog for even a hot second, you will figure out quickly that I am obsessed with monogramming pretty much EVERYTHING!!!  My new fave website is Iomi they have canvas totes with a variety of prints that you can monogram....they have classic prints and fun ones with animals like monkeys and elephants (Another love of mine and a major trend right now in retail).  The entire website is one to peruse, with stationary, totes, home items like lacquer trays, it is the perfect gift giving website...even if it's for yourself!!!

Weekend in Charleston

Mama Jill and I.....besties foreves!

All Chocolate-even the white shell was white chocolate!!!

Mama Jill and I along with her friend Kim headed to Charleston to celebrate my birthday.  We stayed at the Charleston Place Hotel, where they gave us a bottle of wine and lots of chocolates to celebrate my birthday-superior service!!  We shopped until we dropped and walked our way around Charleston seeing the sites.  If anyone is a foodie, they should definitely check out Charleston, some of the best Southern restaurants with fresh seafood!  We were broke by Saturday afternoon and hit up the Thoroughbred club in our hotel for wine and cheese, the perfect way to end our shopping expedition!!  See below for some fabulous shops and restaurant ideas-to name just a few obvi!  Thanks Mama Jill for a fabulous birthday weekend and a very memorable trip into Louis Vuitton....sigh!!!

Weekend Celebration

I am headed to Charleston with Mama Jill to continue my birth month celebration.....I'm sure my parent's are both super thankful that the month of February is short!!  We go to Charleston every year for my birthday, a yearly tradition of walking one of the most beautiful, historic cities in the South! Eating delish Southern food, drinking good wine and did I mention shopping on King Street?!?!?  In honor of our trip and all the wonderful memories we make each year, here is Little Big Town's, "Sober" a moving song that encourages us all to live a little and take chances!  I hope you have a sparkly weekend, if your down South, enjoy this warm, spring weather!

Weekend in Review

Mimi and M3

Big Pappy, Mimi and M3

My godson/nephew M3

Sunday, my nephew M3 was finally Christened at our family church in Greensboro-Holy Trinity.  The first challenge-finding him a Christening outfit that would fit him....he's a beast of a kid (24 month clothing is how he roles) who is about to turn one, which is way past the time in which this babe could fit into a sweet Christening gown.  Luckily, I found him a sweet white linen sailor looking outfit to be Christened in....sigh!  Second challenge-he is definitely finding his voice and gave a few shrill screams in church....I told them to high tail it out of there into the waiting room with our sweet screaming demon.  Shockingly enough while our minister was performing the ceremony and pouring water on him, he was extremely calm and quiet, thank goodness!  So this sweet babe has finally been Christened and is the fourth generation of Murray's to be a member at Holy Trinity.  Mama Jill and I were plum wiped out after hosting a luncheon at our house and hit the back patio and fire pit with a bottle of wine....we totally deserved it!  We thought we were due for some peace and quiet, but my bro showed up with the fam, so we got to hang out more with the cutie above, who was perfectly content to bust a chill by the fire pit....thank goodness!

Saturday was the kick off to my birth month, something I take quite seriously!  I love birthdays, the cake, the candles and just being with great friends and family!  Saturday I went out with four of my girlfriends for dinner at Good Food, a delicious tapas restaurant in Charlotte. It's a great spot to try different dishes and drink great wine, it was the perfect way to kick off this month!  Cheers to a great week!  I know, I'm super relieved we have closed out our fiscal year and can focus on the new year!
