A November Weekend With The Family

This weekend we celebrated my sister's birthday ALL WEEKEND LONG! I sure hope she felt special, because she is and we love her so very much. Friday night, Magnolia and I wore our comfy clothes over to Haley's house. My sister Mallory came down with her babes and we lounged around, talked, & ate tacos! Our conversations ranged from the Kardashian sisters' pregnancies to more serious topics like bullying.

Magnolia isn't up running around with her cousins yet, but she watches them with bright eyes and soon enough she'll be part of their cool cousin squad!

On Saturday I took family photos for my sister at the trails behind our home! I got some amazing shots and we think they turned out great. Mylene and Addy hopped down onto a few creek rocks and made us all nervous, but the photographs by the water are my favorite.

After their family photos we went out for Mexican, yet again, I might have a small obsession with tacos!!!

And then Sunday came so fast! We had our whole family celebration at my brother Joey's restaurant, Louie's Wine Dive in Waldo. He spoiled all of us with appetizers, like freshly made guacamole, calamari, and fried cheese. I enjoyed the most delicious salmon, while everyone else had pulled pork. We all sang her Happy Birthday at the end of the night as my sweet brother brought out "his version" of apple pie with goat cheese & a sparkling candle on top.

Ryan and I took some photographs before we left and Magnolia is just a little hoot. She makes the funniest faces when she's laughing. 'Tis the season for shimmery sweater dresses. I can't help but see her like the little snowflake baby that she is when I look at her in these photos.

Is she really mine!?! Nine months in and I still find myself thinking this is all a dream. Being her mommy is nothing short of a dream come true.

We have some pretty serious conversations. 

Goofball, she loves to make us laugh.

My world in a little square right here. 

We had such a merry little weekend, and I hope you did too!

I have many things on my to-do list for the week, but the funnest thing to do is check out Chip & Joanna Gaines' Hearth & Hand with Magnolia collection at Target! I'm ready to decorate for Christmas, I'm not sure I can wait until after turkey day.

Have a great week friends.

I cannot wait to shop for all of this! All the heart eyes.

  1. I just love reading your blog Wen! I didn't know your brother was the chef at Louie's! We love that place - it's walking distance from Chris's shop too!


  2. I saw Forte on the way to dinner and thought about you & Chris. Joey just started working at Louie's recently & he loves it. xo
