Sweet Friday

I drove to the beach last night after work-I was banking on a snow day yesterday and an earlier start-but per usual the weather man got my hopes up wayyyy too high!  Excited to hang out with my two besties Megan and Kippy-my friends since forever!  We are celebrating our birthdays together with a relaxing weekend at Figure 8.  Side note-I am loving Nick Jonas, first he caught my attention with "Jealous," which my brother turned me onto (he was calling it his jam there for a while-hahaha).  Well now, he has captured me with his new song, "Chains" helloooo on repeat!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

If it's mean to be, it will be.

Georgia On My Mind......

My friends and I got back to Charlotte late Sunday night, just in time to watch the Oscars-sorry, not sorry the Oscars were a complete let down and waste of me being super tired yesterday!  My friends and I had the BEST time at Sea Island!!  Friday, we arrived in time to kick off the weekend with cocktails in the River Bar or as us Southerner's refer to it, the Rivahhhhhhh.  We then checked into our fabulously upgraded Suite-thanks American Express!  We took a shuttle to their other property, the Lodge and watched the bagpipe player while having champagne.  Dinner was at the main hotel at the delicious Italian spot followed by a dance party in our room-we have re-discovered Missy Elliott and she was on point on Pandora Radio!  Saturday was spent at the spa and walking on the beach-the Cloisters has the most relaxing spa!  We had a fancy dinner in the Georgian Room and ended the weekend with more great food, another walk around the property and just soaking up the sunshine!  We all pinky swore that we will plan our next trip back in the fall, so until the fall-or until I find a way to become Eloise and just move in permanently!

Inside the Rock Garden in the Spa.....trickling water

The Foyer of the hotel-we lounged here with our drinks before dinner

Back Porch relaxing after our 5 mile walk

Walking in the low country-beautiful trees and Spanish moss

We loved these beautiful teapots and called them Mrs. Potts and may or may not have hummed a few notes from the Beauty and the Beast ;)

Completely in my happy place!

Sweet Friday

It's been a crazy week-we had an ice storm that started Monday, which meant I worked from home Tuesday in cozy yoga gear, hello dreamy!  I finally started the process of redoing my closet-installation in March-woop woop!  I am headed on a road trip this morning with two of my fabulous friends Erin and Catherine.  We are headed to Sea Island, GA to continue my birthday celebration and to chase the warmer weather.  By now, you know I'm obsessed with the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack, this is one of my favorite songs so far, Ellie Goulding, "Love Me Like You Do."  Have a great weekend!

The Selwyn Crew kicked off my birthday celebrations with dinner at Good Food and then we dumped Stephen to see 50 Shades of Grey-the three of us thought it was a great movie!!

Besties at the Jason Aldean concert in Greensboro on my actual birthday!

This sweet babe turns 2 today-so we bought him a tricycle that mom and I put together-he loves it!!

My little Valentine

Chilling by the fire pit 

He loved throwing the ball to the dogs, but was not happy if they just took it from his hand..... 
Mimi's boy-they love each other so much!

Things I Love

Here are a couple of things that make my heart go boom boom......

The Lone Bellow-killer vocals, killer harmonizing, just do yourself a favor and give them a listen!!!

 These awesome boxes from Anthropologie, I am storing extra jewelry that has been overflowing in my large jewelry box

Shea Butter Lotion
 This body lotion and whole line of goodies is ahmazing!  It's all made from organic ingredients that are grown on a Colorado farm and the smell is divine!  I discovered this line at Sea Island, they carry it in their spa!


This travel wrap from White & Warren-I literally wear it everyday to work since our office is freezing! I think I need to invest in another color!  On a side note, it's super cozy to travel with and can double time as a blanket!

Dee Keller Portia 
These pumps by Dee Keller-the dreamy color makes me wish for spring!
