Fourth of July Recap + Birthday Wishes

We ended up spending the entire week + some at the beach house last week. We knew we would be over there a lot with most of my family in town and we just ended up staying all week! It's hard to turn down a week on the water with lots of additional babysitters, right? It's much more than that though. I appreciate the family breakfasts, lounging on the porch in your pj's, happy hour, sandy flip flops and beach towels, quilts to curl up in for the evenings, the collaboration to cook dinner, the sea breeze especially at sunset, and the love of everyone with you. Here's a few snapshots of our Fourth...

hydrangeas + chardonnay

I swear he has already changed so much in a week! His hair is so much longer this week! Craziness.

Cupcakes + Cool Whip Cookie Cake 

And, last but not least, a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my dear sweet hubs. You are my rock, my best friend, a wonderful father to my baby boy, and I'm so lucky to call you mine. I can't wait to enjoy the {several} days of birthday celebrations to come. All my love honey! xoxo.

It's my birthday y'all! It's been a fun last few days kicking off the birthday celebrations with friends and family, and we are continuing them on tonight. I'm a lucky girl. My sweet husband has made me feel very special over the last few days. Always a good thing :) I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend! 

Don't forget to have a drink for me!

West Bound

We are in Raleigh already and headed west to Asheville, NC for the next several days. I am hoping to escape extreme heat (fingers crossed), shop lots, and enjoy great times with my fam. On top of that, we are celebrating my Grandma's 90th birthday!! We are all so excited to celebrate such a remarkable birthday. Visiting the mountains in the middle of summer is the perfect escape too!

And if you are curious like me, you can check my instagram feed between now and then. If you haven't already, find me at missdixie30. I would love to follow back! 
See you back here next week...xoxo.

Birthday Wishes for Two!

If you have been reading for a while now, you might realize that all of my family has birthdays in the fall and winter and I love sending a special birthday message. This one is no different, and this is actually to TWO people: my sister Sara, and her hubby Manu. 

Today is Sara's birthday and tomorrow is Manu's. If that isn't wild enough, would you believe me if I told you he is from Spain and they met each other in Thailand while vacationing? Wait, hold on a second...they actually saw each other in China first, then met again in Thailand...and have been together since. True story. 

This was their wedding this past summer in Spain, which was a blast for all of us. They did the whole long distance thing at first {like, really long distance!} but that didn't last long. Manu has lived in the US for several years, has graduated from grad school and now, they are happily married and living in Charlotte, NC. 

Happy Birthday Sara and Manu!

Food, Drinks and Dogs: My Week in pictures

I'm sure like most of you/all of you, I have been crazy busy over the past week. In between the prepping for the holidays and other craziness, I took a bunch of photos {via iphone, it's always so handy} and here we have it. Bear with me, this is the old iphone-I get the new one as an early Christmas present tomorrow:)

Hubs started my birthday in a delicious fashion- bacon, egg and cheese on an English muffin. 
It was my birthday, and I indulged.

My older sister and her hubby gave me a beautiful gift set from L'Occitane and the box was amazing. I am currently finding a place for that pretty Hermes Orange color I love.

Night #2 of celebrating with friends at Amos Mosquitoes, their signature dessert is s'mores at the table with your personal campfire. So amazing. A little birthday treat from them.


 My sweet girl making the trip with me to Raleigh for my sister's birthday. She travels well.
 {husband was hunting so this was a girls night}

Dinner at Flemings Steakhouse- I ordered a Christmas Margarita- it was so good!

Normal camera pics- me and the hubs before birthday dinner with his family.

And one with our pups! Tucker looks so happy.

And, my latest appetizer craze. I saw these on A.Liz Adventures a few days ago and I had to make them. Her blog is one of my favorites to read. If you haven't checked it out yet, head on over now. These are "Parmesan crisps" and are amazing. Stephen was in shock when I whipped these out in a matter of minutes. 
They are little piles of Parmesan cheese heated in your pan.
 Check out her details here. And, thank her later after you make them! 

Well that is enough random photos for the week, did you get through all of that?! 
 We are going to spend the rest of our night watching Home Alone 2...tis the season! xo.

Happy Birthday Sis!

Happy Birthday to my sweet little sister! 
This was us this past summer touring Europe for my oldest sister's wedding in Spain- Cheers!

We are definitely the sisters that have the matching handbags, the same style Lilly Pulitzer top, wear scarves on the same day, enjoy the taste of wine and Dirty Shirleys, have an affinity of love for our family, dogs and clothes, and so much more! I surprised her with a visit to Raleigh last night for her birthday dinner with the fam. Hope it's great tonight!! xoxo

Pop the Champagne Darling!

My birthday is tomorrow and I cannot believe the month of November has flown by (oh, and the fact that I am a year older!) It has been unseasonably warm here for weeks, and it figures today it would cool off and rain! I really hope we have another beautiful sunny day tomorrow, I just don't do well in the rain! So...the weather got me thinking, how fabulous would a little party full of pink, peonies and champagne be for a break right here in the middle of the holiday season!?

Happy Tuesday!! xoxo

Birthday Wish List

Wow, I cannot believe it is already the second week of November! Since it is my birthday month, I wanted to share my lust list at the moment. This year for my birthday, I am asking for only "practical" things- like shoes, clothes, accessories for the home, and money towards a new sofa. Very practical, right? Things I will use EVERY day! No more jewelry for me this year! Here's the list.

Frye Boots
a new watch is practical, right?

New end table for the sofa

Tie Neck Blouse

I'm sure there will be more to come (just being honest!)....
Sweet hubby- those are actual links you can follow through to ;)

Happy Birthday Mom!

Happy Birthday to my best friend, a fabulous, wonderful, beautiful, caring and lovely mom! I am so blessed to have her as my mom and she deserves a wonderful day today. We had a great time together this weekend and I wish I was still home today with you! Love you Mom!

I also want to wish my sweet, beautiful friend Ashley a belated Happy Birthday, also. We were
 fast friends from the minute we met at orientation at Meredith, roommates, bridesmaids in each
other's weddings and now she is a fabulous mom herself.
Somehow in the craziness of last week I lost track of the date!
Happy Birthday Ash! Love you!
us back in the day!!

I am trying to fend off a cold and hopefully will be feeling 100% soon. Have a great day!
