life lately.

Hi there! I thought I'd pop in and share a little update on what I've been up to lately:Loving: South Carolina sunsets... I can't get over how gorgeous they are!Eating: Cuban food at The Americano in Mount Pleasant. They have one of the best Cubano sandwiches I've ever had -- the steak and chicken tacos were tasty too. I wasn't a huge fan of the sweet beef empanadas, but everything else was delicious. I can't wait to go back.
Watching: Parenthood -- I just started season two and I really like it, but I have a feeling it's the kind of show that'll make me cry.Exploring: Last week we went to The Charleston Museum. It was H's first time visiting, and I haven't been since I was a teenager. The Charleston Museum is one of the first museum in America -- it was founded in 1773 and opened to the public in 1824. The Museum has a collection of Charleston furniture and silver, Lowcountry textiles, including costumes, quilts, and needlework (and when we visited there was a Wedding Fashion and Traditions in the South exhibit). Violet was a fan of the taxidermy animals, which makes me think we really need to get her to a zoo or the aquarium soon. 

Shopping for me: This eye serum (I tried this cheaper cream and I wasn't really impressed). And a black Madewell belt (boring but I really needed one).
Shopping for baby: I can't get enough of this adorable Etsy shop (I just ordered the ballet pink and buttercup single flower headbands). They will look cute with the pink seersucker ruffle bottom bubble and yellow ruffle trim tank I bought her for summer.

  9. Those outfits and headbands are SO cute!!! That museum sounds fun and so does the zoo. I'm looking forward to when it's warm enough here to walk to the zoo. I also tried that Neutragena eye cream and it didn't do anything. :-/ Let me know if you try that other one though!! :-)
