Weekend Recap

I love our weekends. Not because they’re particularly exciting, but because I love our time together as a family! We usually do a lot of stuff around the house: cooking, cleaning, Pinterest projects, etc. This weekend was no different. We wanted to go the the Farmer’s Market on Saturday, but we got rained out (surprise surprise). So, after Turner’s morning nap, we opted for a Whole Foods trip. We planned out our meals for the week and made our grocery list. Whole Foods is always a good time!

Later that night, we had a super duper date night lined up. Stew’s parents got us a gift certificate for Husk a few months ago for our anniversary. We were thrilled! We’ve been trying to get in there for months! We got decked out and hired Gigi and Paw Paw (my mom and stepdad) to babysit!

Our dinner was nothing short of amazing! First of all, the restaurant is in this old Charleston house. When we walked in, there was a HUGE chalkboard (I was obviously excited) with their ingredients and which local farm they got them from! We sat on the second floor balcony. It wasn’t hot at all, and there was a nice breeze blowing. We started off with wine and some homemade rolls with bourbon infused butter (SO GOOD). My first course was an heirloom tomato and pole bean salad with local goat cheese and homemade ricotta salata. FLAVOR CENTRAL.

Stew started off with a sweet corn soup with blue crab, fennel, and squash. YUM

Then, we moved on to our main courses. I had the flounder with blue crab and local carrots. Stew indulged in a wagyu sirloin with fingerling potatoes.


We also got a skillet of cornbread which was cooked with bacon. Wow. We were stuffed! It was the perfect date night; eating great food in my favorite town in the world!

Sunday, we got a wild hair and decided to do some weeding in the backyard. We had a TON of mulch that we had to put down.mulchphoto
So off we went, on our hands and knees, pulling a zillion weeds out of the garden. I must say, it was a lot of work, but it looks amazing now! Just a side note, if you’ve ever wondered how to have your baby outside while you’re doing things, like lawn work, but don’t want him to get eaten by mosquitoes, put a crib sheet on top! GENIUS! My husband is quite a thinker.

So after a few hours, we cleaned up. Hmmm…how can we end our weekend? How about a trip to Target? So we packed up for a little walk around Target. As you can see, Turner was just as excited as I was!

I could walk around there all day. They have their back to school stuff out already! I always love this time of year. I’m already thinking of decorating for Fall…I know I know, it’s still Summer. I can’t help it if I Live in fast-forward!

We ended the night with our usual dinner, porch swing, bath-time routine. There was a little twist. Turner decided he didn’t want to sit down in his tub. He preferred to stand. And honestly, how could we say no to this face?!

    Sound like such a great weekend. You guys are making such fond memories. The food looked fantastic. You are my kind of people that love food as much as I do, By the way we tried the croissants from trader Joe’s with strawberries.( what a treat) Turner looks like he is enjoying himself so much, Love the canopy to keep away the bugs. It doesn’t take much to make him happy. He is the best. We love that face also. Have a good week. Love You.
