The long weekend was wonderful. It makes going back to work a little bit easier. Theo went out of town from Wednesday till Sunday so it was just my girl, the bump, and me for 4 nights. 

Every afternoon Pixie stands at the window and waits for her daddy to drive up. I would have to tell her he isn't coming home tonight, it broke my heart! She loves Theo so much. 

I made Annie's delicious Tomato Pie and ate off it for a few days. Theo doesn't eat tomatoes so I was kind of happy I could make it for once and not have to worry about him!

Speaking of eating, because that's all I can think about these days, I've gotten into a routine of eating the same things for breakfast.  I always eat yogurt with granola and either bananas or peaches, whatever I have. 

And THEN for my second breakfast about an hour later, I've been loving this cereal that tastes just like Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

The baby must of had a growth spurt or I haven't been eating enough because this past week I've been STARVING all day long. 

I tried a new restaurant on James Island called Ellis Creek Fish Camp and got the Oyster Po'boy. It was pretty good, the restaurant opened only a few weeks ago and you could tell they still had some tweaking to do.

I saw a couple of movies this weekend. First I saw Ricki and the Flash which was decent. I think my mom enjoyed it a lot more than me but that didn't surprise me! I thought it was kind of corny at times but my mom was rocking out so I'm glad someone liked it!

Then on Labor Day Theo and I saw No Escape. It was really good, kept you on the edge of your seat. My hormones are so out of whack I almost started crying during it. I've started to get really sentimental when I see kids in danger in movies! 

We ended the long weekend at my parent's house for my Lowcountry Boil /  Frogmore Stew / Beaufort Stew, it has a couple of different names but it's all the same thing and it's always good!

And just an update, I LOVE my MIRA water bottle. I got the 25oz one so it's huge but I like that I can take a lot of water with me and it stays really cold. Such a great deal for $21!

How was your Labor Day weekend? What did you do?

  1. We made a tomato pie this weekend too - it was the first time I'd ever had one!! I wouldn't think that movie with owen wilson would be good, but I'm glad you liked it...and I could see my mom liking the Meryl Streep movie more than me too lol! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. Ahhh now I must make a tomato pie!!

  3. Ohh that pie looks delicious! So does that mac and cheese from Ellis Creek Fish Camp. It's always nice to try out new restaurants but never a good thing when you can tell they still have kinks to work out. Glad you had a good weekend!
