Red White & Blue

Happy Memorial Day weekend! This holiday is one that gets more meaningful as I get older. I feel so blessed to live in such an amazing country. Without the men and women who make such sacrifices, we wouldn’t have the freedom we do! For them, I am thankful.

We have had a great start to this holiday weekend so far. Saturday morning we started our day as usual with coffee and milk in bed. Then we went downstairs for a festive breakfast of waffles with homemade strawberry jam and yogurt with berries.


Turner loved it so much that he wanted to do some finger painting with his yogurt. Him feeding himself is teaching me a lot about letting go!

After breakfast, we cleaned up and headed to World Market to find a new rug for the kitchen. We didn’t have any luck, but I’m obsessed with that store, so it was fun nonetheless. We came back home for lunch and a nap. After Turner woke up I made him a little snack. He had a strawberry and banana smoothie with some fresh fruit.

That afternoon, my mom and stepdad came over to babysit so Stew and I could go have a date. We started at our favorite little spot in Charleston, Kudu Coffee and Craft Beer. I’ve been going to this place since I was in college. Hands down best coffee and beer I’ve ever had! My pick was the Stone Smoked Porter with Chipotle Peppers and Stew picked the Stone Collective Distortion IPA. Delicious!

Then, Stew and I walked down the street to Monza which has the BEST brick oven pizza ever! And, of course, we ended the night with some ice cream. It was an awesome day! I’m so excited that I get two more days with my boys! Happy Memorial Day!
