Let’s Catch Up: April/May

Happy Wednesday friends! Since I’ve been on a roll with the blog as of last week (see my travel posts from California here and here), I figured it was time to catch up on everything thats been going on lately!

It’s been a long time since I’ve done a post like this (January maybe?) so it’s totally overdue. The last two months were absolutely hectic, in all the best ways possible though. So I thought it would be fun to share what I’ve been up to via my iPhone pics. Some of these pics you might recognize from Instagram, but others never quite made it on there…..

Grab a cup of coffee because this is a long one, I hope you enjoy!

My sister and I took a trip to Upper Shirley Vineyards towards the end of March. It was my first time visiting, and I couldn’t get over how beautiful it was! The food of course was delicious (hello ham biscuits <333), but the property itself was just lovely. For those who live in Richmond, this vineyard is just a short drive away and worth the trip! And for those planning a wedding…this place really is a dream!

The first weekend in April, my friends and I met up for a MUCH needed girls day. We went to brunch at “Supper” (which is TO die for…please check out how big that biscuit is above!) and brewery hopped around Scotts Addition. Of course we all were twinning in white….

When Myles and I weren’t bouncing around all weekend, we were spending a lot of time with my sister and her boyfriends’ dogs. Dogsitting is literally the best of both worlds. Zeke especially is such a clown!

If you don’t already, be sure to follow me along on Insta – I’m always posting videos of these pups!  I especially can’t wait for our trip to the Outer Banks in 1.5 weeks. These two have no idea the fun they have ahead!

We toured a few rehearsal dinner options and I think we finally found a winner.  More to come later this year once everything is finalized….

Random- but I finally caved and purchased a Chanel classic flap bag from Snobswap. This has always been a dream bag of mine, so when I saw a used (but practically new) one on sale I took it as a sign (ha!) Needless to say I’m in love, and I can’t wait to carry this bag for years to come…..

Myles and I made the trip to Atlanta one weekend in April for the most beautiful wedding! Everything from the hotel, to the rehearsal dinner, the ceremony, and reception was beyond perfect.

We’re so excited for the happy couple and so glad we got to celebrate them all weekend. I really wish I could share some of the pictures I took, but I’ll let the professional pictures speak for themselves. (I seriously can’t wait to see them!) Congrats to the Carrolls!

While Myles was off hanging out with the groomsmen, I brunched with my bff from college. Hey Stro!

I took off work on a random Wednesday to celebrate my 28th birthday with my parents (in Lilly of course!) Our birthday lunch tradition at Brio might be one of my favorites (the salmon is SO good!) As always, my mom gave me the cutest gift-  how adorable are these signs?!

And to continue on with the birthday celebrations…. My college bffs visited from ATL and DC for a weekend of catching up and wedding dress shopping! I can’t even explain how blessed I am for these girls in my life, as well as my mom and big sister <3

We had the best day full of champagne, dresses on dresses, lunch with views of the James, visiting the most gorgeous boutique I’ve ever seen (seriously, that chandelier deserves all the heart emojis), and of course pizza 😉 I’ll be sharing more on my dress shopping experience later….but all I can say is I’m pretty sure we found the one!!! The day honestly couldn’t have been more perfect- basically as cliche as that sounds. So thank ya’ll for making it so special!!! Can’t wait until 5/5/18

And last but not least, lately I’ve been addicted to Jcrew/Jcrew Factory…

Well friends, I think that’s about it. I hope you enjoyed this post and I can’t wait to get back into the swing of blogging. I have so many fun things planned ahead that I want to share – including the rest of my California travel posts, a family beach trip this month, wedding updates (I’m thinking of doing these monthly?), more J Crew Factory finds (I definitely did some damage…), as well as a big trip Myles and I have planned for early September!!

It’s going to be a great summer and I can’t wait to have ya’ll along for the ride.

Thanks for reading <3

XOXO
