Home Accessories and Style Weekend recap & update on my new mommy blog

Happy Monday!

Before I get into my weekend recap, I wanted to give a little update on The Mini Skirt (my spin-off mommy blog).  It is almost up and ready to go!  I have one more mommy related post to do on this blog, and after that, I’ll announce the launch of the new blog.  I cannot wait!

My weekend recaps will also start to be there as well.   But for now…here’s a recap of my weekend!

Addie 4 month well visit

Addie had her 4-month old well visit on Friday morning, and she did great.

The poor thing had to get three vaccinations though.  It really wore her out, as you can see.

Cheese free pizza

MT and I made it a pizza and wine night and watched more of The Sopranos.  We’re almost done with the series!  I am going to be so sad when it is over, but I cannot wait to find out what happens.

On Saturday morning, I took a long walk with the kids and stopped at our neighborhood playground, so Michael could burn off some energy before his nap.

MT and I had a date that night at a restaurant called Bravo.  They have a beautiful patio, so we asked to sit outside.  It was the perfect night for people watching with some wine in hand!

I got to wear my new starfish cuff bracelet.  I actually won it in a giveaway!  Isn’t it fun?

Dinner was delicious, and we were both completely stuffed when the dessert menu rolled around.

We still had room left over for some more wine and beer of course, so we headed off to Bradshaw Social House for some drinks.

Again, we sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful weather.  I’m so not used to going out anymore though.  I was exhausted by the time our check arrived!

I guess that’s what happens when the extent of your partying involves watching Elmo’s dance party with a toddler.

Kate Spade

Some new outlets recently opened up in Charlotte, so we went shopping on Sunday.

MP and Addie

Even though the Kate Spade, J. Crew, and Cosmetics Company outlets were all very tempting, I actually only ended up shopping for the kids.  I even got Addie’s Halloween costume!

I’ll give you a little hint:  It has to do with fruit. ;)

And as usual, we ended the weekend with a nice dinner, wine, popcorn, and a movie.

I hope that you had a great weekend too!



  1. Sounds like a Wonderful Weekend – your two beans are oh so CUTE :) Do they give mothers a little something, something when kids get their vacations?!? She is getting so BIG already! Nothing better than a great date night – love your pop of yellow and starfish cuff – Rockin the Style :)

    Happy Week!

    All they get for their shots are cute Band-Aids! LOL. It is definitely harder on mommy to watch the whole thing than it probably is for the little ones. Happy Monday!

  2. Sounds like a perfect weekend. Love that you and MT get date nights!! Makes me wish Tyler and I had more haha!! That’s so awesome that there are new outlets in Charlotte. I guess all the more reason for me and Tyler to come back and visit there!
