I hope all is well on this overcast and chilly Monday. It's a perfect day to snuggle with a cup of coffee, under a blanket, on the couch, with a fire blazing in the fireplace. Let's all take a moment and go there in our minds.
Welcome back to the real world. That's not happening today in my house. We have our last mommy and me Little Gym class, grocery store shopping, bed stripping, and dinner making on the agenda. I know, those are thrilling plans. I can hardly contain my excitement. Don't be jealous.
I was, however, truly excited on Friday. Mr. BMJ and I got a sitter and headed out to Kiawah to look at a few
homes unbelievably gorgeous mansions with an architect we're considering. I've truly never seen anything like these amazing structures they design. Check them out here. We went in the Tadler home. We grabbed dinner at La Tela Pizzeria in Freshfield Village. The quail egg pizza is life changing.
Saturday was filled with pumpkin patch fun and a date night at the movies. Boone Hall Plantation stepped it up this year and the pumpkin patch is better than ever. Make sure you go on the hay ride if you make it out there. We're going to go back a few more times because we didn't get to do all of the fun things they offer.
Who's going to the Boone Hall Fright Nights with me? They have 4 attractions this year. Whoa. They even named one after me. You better wear ear plugs. I'm going to scream the entire time. Loudly.
We saw "Gravity" at my fave Cinebarre Theater. It was a great movie and we were on the edge of our seats the entire time. Clooney and Bullock were superb. Sandy has been to a few thousand spinning classes. Girlfriend is even more buff than ever! I watched her and her perfect body while eating chips and queso and drinking BMJ. Perfect!
On Sunday, I actually did get to lay on the couch with my coffee and watch an entire cooking show thanks to Mr. BMJ taking Baby Girl upstairs to play in the playroom. It was heaven! In the afternoon, we drove around looking at a few homes under construction and got busted snooping. Oops. We were just doing our architect homework.
I ordered a back-up dress for our November outdoor farm wedding in case my Carmen Marc Valvo couture dress doesn't make it in time. J.Crew was practically giving the dress away with the 25% off sale but today they're offering free shipping and 25% off. Grrrrr. That happens every time I order something from them. So annoying.

I'm wearing it with these tights I scored in NYC at Bergdorf and a pair of black patent heels. Does anyone have a black mink coat I can borrow?!

That's all for Monday folks. See you tomorrow!
p.s. Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice? Because it's family picture day on Saturday and I need my hair did and to figure out what everyone is wearing. Suggestions are appreciated!
