Our Weekend + Baby M is a....

Monday, August 25, 2014

This weekend involved a lot of brunch, naps, and some delicious Jeni's ice cream to top it all off.

On Saturday my husband and I headed to Poogan's Porch for probably the most delicious brunch we've had in Charleston. If you are in town, please don't miss this place! We started with pimento fritters, which were so good! Steve got the chicken and waffles, which despite my aversion to chicken, was amazing. I ordered the french toast with strawberries and pecans, which was equally delicious.


We did some shopping and picked up some baby clothes. I was happy that the new H&M here carries some maternity clothes so I can find some cheap pants when I decide I'm sick of busting out of my current ones.

On Sunday, I met up with Ally and Jillian for day 2 in a row of brunch downtown! We went to Leaf and it was delicious! I went the healthy route with eggs but topped it off with "brown butter almond brittle" and "buckeye state" ice cream from Jeni's afterwards. I don't regret it one bit. So good.


Ruby helped us with Baby M's gender reveal! In case you missed it on Instagram or Twitter, we're having a baby BOY! We could not be more excited! More details to come this week :)


And because no weekend is complete without some sort of shenanigans, Ruby barked nonstop at the balloons and wouldn't take a step near them until we tied them to the baby's Jellycat stuffed animal. All of a sudden she grabbed it and took off! Guess her bionic puppy knees were feeling a-okay.


I hope you all had a great weekend! Don't forget to join the football kick off week link-up tomorrow!

  6. Congrats on your big news!! And a tidbit I wish I would have though of act maternity pants. Get them NOW. I held out as long as possible, but you have to buy them anyway, so may as well get as much use out of them as you can! I bought a ton of stuff when I couldn't wear regular clothes any more, and felt like I only got to wear it for a couple months. Should have done that earlier instead of walking around uncomfortable all those weeks. Just a suggestion :) Congrats again!
