Stilettos and Diapers: Birthday Weekend


Birthday Weekend

Saturday was the hubs birthday and his only request was to spend it on the lake. Easy enough for me! We went out early that morning and all had a blast. 

Um, yes. That's me out there with Cooper. He kept giving the hubs the thumbs up to go faster and I just screamed for the majority of the time. 
The boys had enough after a few hours and curled up with me  on the way back in. The rare moments they let me hold them close are the best!
Birthday dinner request was "some kind of fish at home". I made chilean sea bass and scallops that I picked up fresh from our farmers market. It was amazing!
After dinner, we decided to head back out on the lake. I can't tell you how many times Cooper jumped off the back of the boat!
It's so gorgeous to be out when the sun sets! 

Sunday, we went to church, then we were off to a party! Our friends have, arguably, the best backyard on the lake and won a contest through the local radio station for a backyard barbecue and concert. We spent the whole afternoon there while the kids swam, DJ played tons of music and we sweated buckets!

Katy Tiz (The Big Bang) preformed a couple songs and took pictures with everyone.

Needless to say, we all slept very well last night. Who knows how long we'll live here, so we're trying to take advantage of every bit of time we have living by the lake! 

To my sweet hubs, happiest Birthday! I'm so grateful for you and our life lived together. I love you!


  1. Hey girl, What farmers market do you usually go to? I've never seen one around with scallops and need to hit up the one you went to... Davidson???

  2. Looks like such a fun weekend and you're right that backyard is gorgeous!

  3. Looks like a blast! We're actually moving to Charlotte in a few weeks, and I'm super excited to have a nice lake nearby. I'm used to living next to the ocean, so it'll be weird not to have a beach right down the street! I'm super excited, though. :)

    Do you guys live close to the lake? With my husbands job, I'm pretty sure we'll be South of Charlotte, so probably in the Matthews area. Do you have any idea how long it would take to get to the lake from there?

  4. Happy Birthday to your Hubby!
    What a wonderful weekend celebration you all had
    I'm so jealous of that pool, that is amazing :)

  5. What an awesome birthday! And you're right- they have a perfect backyard!!
