Thirsty Thursday: Touchdown Tequila Punch + Life Lately

Softest Pullover Ever! // Waterproof Wedges (not only are they great in the rain, but they’re super comfortable too!) // Twine & Twig Necklace (Their latest Low Country Collection was recently featured in Garden & Gun magazine.  100% of the first 100 necklaces they made in their collection will be donated to the Lowcountry Land Trust.) // Sunnies // Jeans // Monogrammed Capsule Crossbody

Because I had so much to share in these past few weeks, I had to break it up into two days worth of posts.  Don’t worry though, I still included a cocktail for Thirsty Thursday too! // Coziest PJs in the snuggliest of blankets (gray and ivory – both on sale).  Perfect way to start last Saturday!

The girls have already been to Disney, but we’ve held out to take the boys.  Thinking maybe next year.  But if Logan meeting Chase at Wonder Works on Saturday is anything like he’ll be in Disney, I can’t wait to take him.  I don’t think his smile could be any bigger.  As soon as he had the chance, he ran up to him and gave him the biggest hug!

Still one of our favorite spots to eat lunch – Taco Boy!

On Saturday night, we took a party bus out to celebrate two of our friends celebrating their  birthdays.  I’d never been on one before, but let’s just say it won’t be the last.  We had the BEST time!

I had some of you ask about my star necklace.  It’s the one I featured on Tuesday’s post.  Wore these earrings.

An unforgettable night!  Here, with our sweet driver, Herbert.

Love that Logan still loves to wear his dress-ups, just as much as the girls do.

My four.  On our way to church, we’ve gotten into a routine of snapping a pic before walking in.  Even the kids ask to do it.  Love this one from this past Sunday so much.

SEWE is coming up!  In just a few weeks, February 16th-18th, the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition will arrive at so many locations around town, like Brittlebank Park, Marion Square and the Gaillard Center.  My kids are mostly excited that Jack Hanna will be here!  And I just love the Dock Dogs competition.  If you want 20% off your ticket, use code: SWEET at check-out.  FYI, today is the last day for online sales.  Head over here to order your discounted tickets.
