Happy Monday guys!  I swear it was just Friday.  We had such a good weekend - it was full and we saw so many good friends!  Friday night we attended our bi-monthly steak club!  We really had so much fun.  It seems like all of our friends are the best chefs and the best hostesses.  Our friends spoiled the group with beef tenderloin, grilled asparagus and the best summery cucumber salad.  We all had way too much wine and homemade birthday cake for dessert!  Our friends came up with the most clever new game that we'll share.  We all sat around the table for over an hour after we finished up dinner playing.

Saturday, we hit the road to Columbia to celebrate the engagement of one of our best family friends.  His parents live on Lake Murray on what has to be the most beautiful lot on the lake - huge yard perfect for a bbq cookout, music, volleyball and games.  If Virginia sees water there's no chance she's not trying to get in it.  She stripped her clothes and took a little dip mid party.

Sunday, the LaRoque team came to town with their adorable LaRoque Mini Fall Show!  We had the best time.  Virginia picked out a few (adorable!!!) dresses and we made a few new friends over the course of the afternoon.  It's hard not to enjoy an afternoon of dessert, champagne and shopping for cute kiddo clothes. 

We finished the weekend with pimento cheese burgers and called it an early night.  We're trying to savor these last few weeks of summer, and this weekend really felt like the perfect hot, summery weekend.  Have a good week guys!  Heath moves into her new house this week! eeekk!
