Weekend in Pictures

Our weekend was exactly what I needed. We spent the weekend at my parent's beach house with them and my younger sister. When I say we go to the beach house, it is very convenient. As in, it's a five minute drive over a bridge! Very nice for an easy getaway. We spent the weekend going out for nice dinners- once with Stephen's family and once with mine. Saturday was absolutely gorgeous. Perfect for some shopping with the girls. This picture really doesn't do any justice, but I snapped it as we were going over the bridge in Emerald Isle- we ventured down that way for some shopping and lunch.


After we got back from shopping, my sister and I took our dogs out on the beach. There is something so therapeutic about the smell of salt air. Here's my sweet girl doing her best to pose. Yes, she has to be on a leash on the beach. Stephen and I made that mistake once and I thought I would never see her again as she bolted down the beach.


This is my sister's golden, Teddy. I've never seen a dog lie down and dig holes at the same time, but that is what he did. He's still quite the puppy and this was the least bit of sand that he had all day on his nose.


Last night we had another amazing dinner. This fresh crab dip came from a market that sells food from one of our favorite restaurants, Beaufort Grocery. We also picked up a frozen lasagna that you better believe I am fixing for dinner this week! 


I'm really hoping after being spoiled with 60 degree weather this weekend that we don't plunge into a really cold February. I have the itch more than ever for spring and summer! 
Hope y'all had a wonderful weekend!! xo.
