My Life Lately in Pictures

Hey guys, I haven't been updating you on what's been going on lately, so here's a recap of the last two weekends through pictures.
Over Labor Day weekend, my husband went to his parent's house for a big gathering for the opening day of dove season.  It's a pretty big deal to them, and while that's all great, it's not necessarily my cup of tea.  So I chose to stay at my house and invited the girls to join me while our husbands did their hunting and gathering.  
My girl's weekend started off with a happy hour at a friend's house.  It was kind of a last minute thing, but we ended up having so much fun.  We had some great snacks to munch on and did a little wine tasting.  One of my friends is much more sophisticated in her wine than I am, but she brought the Cyrus wine, which is in the $40 per bottle range I believe and then the Alexander Valley Vineyards wine, which is the more affordable bottle at $15-20 range.  They are made by the same winery, and while we did like both, we all agreed the Cyrus was better and delicious, hence the higher dollar amount.  It was such a nice treat!  I would recommend both depending on how much you are wanting to spend.
{side note: We are going to Sonoma/Napa at the end of this month, and I'm so excited to be exploring the wineries in this area.  So, I feel like this was a nice kickoff!}

When I got home that Friday evening after happy hour, my husband had left a note with flowers and a bottle of nice champs.  He can be sweet like that sometimes! :) 
The flowers lasted for almost two weeks.  They got even prettier as they all bloomed.
So the girls that came for the weekend were my sister and two nieces, my sister-in-law and mother-in-law.  While we were playing games, my youngest niece and mother-in-law did some finger painting.  My MIL was drawing a stick figure here of my father-in-law and it really tickled my niece.  This was such a cute moment to witness.

The we had a pool day.  Yes, a huge dolphin is necessary in the pool in case you didn't know that.  They actually find it challenging to stay on, so it keeps them busy for a while.  Good for us! ;)

What is a girl's pool day without Cupcake prosecco and gossip magazines?!

This past weekend we attended my cousin's wedding. 
This is my mother and grandmother in the picture with me.  Aren't they beautiful?

So that's what's been going on around here. 
This weekend we are gearing up for the BIG A&M vs. ALABAMA game.  Go Aggies!  WHOOP!  My husband is just beside himself about this game.  You should see how intense he gets when they even mention it on ESPN.  :)
Then Saturday night, we'll be hitting the town to celebrate a friend's birthday.   On Sunday, we'll be visiting some friends that just had their baby, and we can't wait to meet her. 
Hope all of you lovelies have a wonderful weekend.

  8. I am swooning over your gorgeous kitchen. Drooling over here! Sounds like you had a lovely weekend- here's to hoping the next one comes quick! ;) xoxo

    1. Thank you so much! But I have to say the kitchen in the pics of the wine tasting is not my kitchen. Sad, I know. But it's the kitchen of a friend that remodeled her home this year, and she did amazing didn't she?! Her kitchen is gorgeous! I swoon every time I see it too!
