Nothing could be finer...

I love we have been to the NC State Fair every year we have been together.  I didn't realize I had a picture captured from each year and so happy I do! It is funny to see how different the weather has been even though its the same time of year everytime.

We love a traditional funnel cake

It finally feels like FALL

Now, that it is mid October, it is finally starting to feel like the right season - FALL.  I couldn't be more excited to wear booties and sweaters.

Friday: My gentleman and I decided to stay in, share a bottle of wine and watch a movie in comfy clothes.  It was PERFECT!  We watched an older movie 'Runaway Jury' but I have never seen it before and it was so good.

Saturday: Of course, college football was on the TV all day and then later we headed out to celebrate my brother in law's birthday.  We had a great time and ate at Buku and then had a few drinks at Anchor Bar downtown.

Sunday: We headed to the farmer's market so I could decorate our outside for FALL.  The farmer's market has every color mum you are looking for and any size and shape pumpkin you may need.  Later, Keith watched is favorite NFL team, The Browns and we had a great day!

Goodbye September, Hello October

The last weekend in September, my sister and I decided to go to Busch Gardens for the day.  The hot summer days were behind us and most kids were in school, so we figured it would be a good idea.

Friday:  My gentleman surprised me with dinner and drinks at Vic's Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria.  While, I hate surprises, I have never eaten at Vic's so I was excited! After dinner, we had a drink at Lynnwood Grill before calling it a night.

Saturday: My sister and I woke up early and drove to Williamsburg, VA to spend the day at Busch Gardens.  We didn't have to wait for most of the rides and the weather was perfect!Some of the rides were super scary and we felt dizzy or got a headache right away.  BUT we had a great time, and remember when we went with dad years ago.

Sunday: Sunday Funday consisted of watching football and I decided to start a cross stitching project.  It is coming along nicely!

Flower Arranging Class

For my birthday, my bestie gifted me a class of my choice with SkillPop.  I have taken a few classes before but never a flower arranging class.  I found an upcoming class at The King's Daughters Inn in Durham so we signed up.  I learned a few new things about flowers and had so much fun!

Anne-Stuart Turns 35!

My best friend, turned 35 and we celebrated this weekend at Lynwood Grill.

Friday: Keith and I didn't do much just stayed in and watched movies.

Saturday: We did a few chores around the house and went to Lynwood Grill to celebrate Anne-Stuart birthday.  It still doesn't feel like fall here in NC hence why I wore a romper in September.

Sunday: We had our family pictures taken and I am dying to get a sneak peak.  We always use these pictures for our Christmas cards.

Lilly Pulitzer Lover

I can't say no to a pretty Lilly Pulitzer dress and then add a pretty pink back drop, SOLD!  I love adding a new Lilly dress to my wardrobe because I can wear them year after year. 


Labor Day Weekend - St. Augustine FL Edition

Sam, Annie, Anne-Stuart and I talked a few weeks back about all meeting up in St. Augustine for Labor Day weekend.  We made a plan and stuck to it.  We got so lucky the weather was amazing because its the start of hurricane season.

Friday: Anne-Stuart and I woke up at 5am and hit the road.  We made great time, and arrived at lunch in St. Augustine.  We hung out and then had dinner at Breakaways on the water.

Saturday: We headed to the beach as the weather was perfect.  Later, we had people over at Annie's house and swam in the pool and grilled out.

Sunday: We were all lazy and hung out at the house for most of the day.  We ended up going to the beach for a few hours before heading downtown to check out Old Coast Brewery and then dinner at Conch House.  After dinner, we went to Social Lounge for a few drinks.

Monday: We decided to leave early to avoid all the holiday traffic. We made really good time and were lucky to avoid all of the traffic.  You can never avoid traffic when getting …
