… Getting to try out the new Sweet Tea Surrender spa services at Soul Spa in downtown Jackson’s The Westin hotel! This new line of spa services incorporates relaxation, a beautiful spa experience, and sweet tea in the products used! Does it get any more southern? It was a heavenly day the day I got to experience Sweet Tea Surrender. And as I was touring the spa, I really was blown away with all the amenities and just the simple beauty of the place! Like this beautiful pool nestled into the corner of a private little courtyard for spa guests to sit in and sip mimosas 🙂 Read more about my Sweet Tea Surrender pedicure here!

… Family movie night upstairs over the weekend! Despicable Me 2 was the film of choice. We all loved it! And had a ball with all the blankets, pillows, and stuffed animals we could carry upstairs!

… Pairing a blazer with my bump. Have LOVED this blazer I got recently from Nordstrom. Highly recommend! I wish it came in more patterns! I ordered my normal size, so because it’s made to fit more like menswear to a non pregnant person, it works well as more of a fitted blazer now, but will also be beautiful once I’m back down to a more normal weight. I love the menswear look so I’ll feel like a have a whole new piece once this baby makes his appearance!
