Day to Night + a few Links

We were at the beach earlier this week, so I'm currently unpacking and wearing all the "bottom of the barrel" clothes because of all the laundry happening over here, but here ^ is a fun Day to Night outfit and a few links for your Friday!

*I'm currently in to all things with ruffles and tassels and this shirt from SheIn is the perfect match for just that.  (I've found with items from SheIn, I like to go up one size from my normal size.)  I also think this top, this dress, and this skirt are super cute!

*My boys LOVE these guys and thought this was hilarious.  (I'm the sunscreen lady btw.)  As great as these scripted videos may be, nothing beats this classic home video.  We just revisited it the other day and laughed just as hard as we did the first time we saw it.

*One day, I want an island in my kitchen that's so big I can lay on it.  I don't care about the rest of the house....just that island in the kitchen.  This is a pretty great one (and I love how it has the desk space in the kitchen as well.)  Ahhhh dreamy!

*These turns!!!! Also dreamy.

I hope y'all have a GREAT weekend!!

Bald Head Island

Noel and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary on June 1.  Both of these pictures were taken at the Raleigh LDS temple.....10 years brought a lot of fun changes for our family!

Noel and I always said, when we first got married, that we'd spend our 10 year anniversary in London or on some fancy island.  Those years went by pretty fast.  Being fresh out of law school and having 4 little children, one of them a newborn, that London/fancy island trip didn't happen, but we did take the whole crew down to Bald Head Island.

We loved it so much that we're planning on going back every year from now on.  The island is beautiful and so nicely secluded from everyone and everything.  When we were leaving the island, and came up on all the restaurants and people and traffic, we realized just how nice it was to be away from all of that for a while.

Here's a short little video of our trip full of fun, sand, and dabbing.

Baby Sae's Blessing Day

We had baby Sadie's blessing on Mother's Day and it was such a special day.  Our family and friends joined us at church where Noel gave our sweet precious girl the most beautiful blessing and afterwards we had lunch at our house.  Here are some pictures from the day.

^Crew boo was NOT having any kind of pictures.

^It was so awesome having all my siblings with me

^I had to document that my brother brought his own Pepsi to my house.  The sign of a person from New Bern. (New Bern is the home of Pepsi btw)

Read with Me

I had the great privilege of hosting story time at Read With Me yesterday.  Read With Me is a children's book and art shop in downtown Raleigh and it is the CUTEST shop you will ever see. The owner, Christine, was absolutely delightful, and her shop was a beautiful reflection of her creativity and kindness.

During story time, the children and I read books and sang songs about animals, and afterwards, there was an option to stay for a craft.  The craft went along with our animal theme and was hosted by their fun, in-house art teacher.  There were so many smiles that morning!

I'm always looking for fun things to do with my kids and neat places to take them.  I'm so excited that this wonderful shop is now open! They are offering summer camps all summer long.....I was so happy to see that there will be some offered through August.  I feel like most camps end in July and it's way too hot for even the pool by the end of the summer, so these will be perfect! 

Here are a few pictures from our morning.  What a happy morning it was!  A huge thanks to those of you who came out for was so great seeing you and your sweet kids!  

And thank you to my sweet friend, Katelynn, for coming with me to sit with my sweethearts and for taking these pictures!

Mother's Day Lunch

It's become a tradition for these boys (and now their sister) to take me out for a Mother's Day brunch.  I prefer experiences and moments over gifts, so this is perfect.  I want this tradition to continue for forever and ever!  Noel made a reservation for us this year at Mandolin Restaurant and it was fantastic!

During our meal, an older gentleman came over to our table and told us that he loved seeing how the boys dressed and acted liked southern gentleman.  So sweet.  Also, Sadie was covered up in her carseat, and when I took her out, the family beside us squealed out loud and said, "it's a girl!!!". So fun.

I hope y'all have a great Memorial Day Weekend!!!

NC Zoo

We took a family trip to the zoo about 3 weeks ago, and it was such a great day.  When we first arrived, there were about 10 million field trips going on, but about an hour into it, they left for lunch and things got a lot quieter.  Here are a few pictures from the day!

Our favorite animals were the adorable. I wore my Fitbit to the zoo and tracked over 10,000 steps.  I was feeling it, too! 

I hope y'all are having a great week!
