Scenes From Our Weekend

On Thursday I cut and colored my hair for my trip.  I have almost gotten a bob the past three times I went to get my hair cut, but I always chicken out.  I never know how to style it long and I always end up putting it up in a ponytail or bun, so I finally decided to pull the trigger.  I'm loving it so far!  I go to Rayna at Smoke and Mirrors salon.  I asked for the "Caroline Stanbury"!


On Friday night we had a Hello Fresh dinner called Sugar Sweet Pork Chops with Mixed Root Veggies. The glaze on the pork was amazing - spicy and sweet. I added zucchini and extra carrots to the roasted veggies and served a beet and goat cheese salad on the side.  (I'm trying to get rid of all the veggies in the house before my trip because I know no one's going to be chowing down on carrots and zucchini while I'm gone. "Sadness," as Darby would say.)

On Saturday Darby and I had girl time and got our nails done.  We had so much fun chatting that I forgot to take a picture. 

We had Christian's Pizza for dinner, put the kids to bed, and then Mark and I watched multiple episodes of Big Bang Theory.  He doesn't normally watch anything other than the Golf Channel, so this is a big deal that he'll watch this with me. I'm on season five and I'm already starting to get sad about running out of episodes to watch. 


On Sunday I wore my white bell sleeve top (similar under $60) to church with my favorite pants from Banana. (And, no, I did not name my daughter after them. It's just a coincidence.) I bought these four years ago and I'm still wearing them. I also wore this necklace which is so simple and goes with everything. My shoes are four years old, but I found these black ones that I'm loving on sale! They also come in nude. My girlfriend has the suede version and loves.  I would get the patent ones because I'm so hard on shoes.


The high was 81 here on Sunday (so glad I'm flying to St. Maarten this week to escape this terrible winter we're having!) After church we had brunch at the golf course and the Mark and Darby took off for 18 holes with Mark's friend and her daughter. And I got to go home by myself and watch Big Bang Theory all afternoon while Sloan napped. Heaven.


Have a great week! I'm hoping to write a post or two while in St. Maarten, but I'm not promising anything. My plan is to park it in the pool at Villa Namste all week and read a book or two!
