Weekend Recap 6.26.18 Family Reunion at Lake Burton

Hey friends!!!  I hope you all had a great weekend!! We had so much fun at the lake with family.  It was so relaxing and just what we needed.  Like always, it went by way too fast. 😦 

We left early Thursday morning and arrived in the afternoon.  For dinner on Thursday night, we went into town to our favorite restaurant, Fortify


I got the scallops and they were AMAZING!! 


My husband and my brother-in-law on a boat ride!


Sunsets at the lake are the best!


Callie loves them too. 🙂


Evening boat ride!


Friday was spent hanging out at the lake house after a long walk with the pups.  More family arrived Friday afternoon and some of the boys spent the morning playing golf while the girls lounged at the house.  

Saturday morning after a quick walk with the pups, we headed to the boat dock to hop onto a pontoon boat for the Lake Burton home tour!  We got to tour 4 amazing homes on the lake and it was so fun getting style inspiration.  They were fabulous!


Beautiful day!


The rest of Saturday was spent lounging…Callie’s tongue cracks me up. 


Playing ping pong and water pong in the boat house!  Riley found the perfect resting spot.


Callie did really well with the family this weekend.  She is always a little timid around strangers, but she warms up pretty quickly these days, which makes us just so happy.  


Riley getting some love. 


Riley got a few paddle board sessions in this weekend.


This dog just LOVES the water, unlike most small dogs I know.  We seriously have to drag him out of there or he would be in there all day long.


Lunch on Saturday was leftover grilled salmon, fresh berries and a costco quinoa salad! yum!


Saturday night we boated over to the marina for dinner with the family.  


I got the red snapper special and it was really yummy.  I cleaned my plate!


The family. 🙂


My sweet husband.


We spent Sunday morning packing up and saying goodbye to our family. We had to get a few more family photos before we left!

The whole crew!


The cousins.


Us with my in-laws.


We arrived home in the early afternoon and quickly unpacked, did some laundry, my husband went grocery shopping, and we meal prepped for the week.  Dinner was burgers, a new green bean recipe and a carrot salad recipe we love.  We spent the rest of the evening catching up on The Staircase on Netflix.  Have any of you seen it?

  1. Highlight of my weekend was heading North to Minnesota to spend time with my parents. The weather up here is absolutely gorgeous.
    My go to side dish would have to be carrots and/or broccoli with some type of seasoning. I also LOVE me some BBQ chips AND Pretzels BUT those are usually kept for when I have burgers or sandwiches.
    I am looking forward to celebrating my 28th birthday next month. I am also participating in a charity ride for St. Jude’s children’s hospital. I am struggling to find people to sponsor my ride but I’ll figure it out!
    Happy Tuesday!


    1. Oh that sounds so nice.. I bet the weather was amazing. It is way too hot (and humid) here in Nashville. I love broccoli and have it as a side often.. and carrots too. What are you going to do for your birthday!? That is so awesome of you!! Can you email me the link? I would be happy to donate to the cause!!


      1. Taylor … you’re too sweet! Please check your instagram if you feel so inclined. I know that if we all work together we can help make sure that no child is turned away for cancer treatment. 🙂


      2. Taylor you can’t know how excited my friend is to have this Charity ride be a success. She lost her only son a year ago last sunday so this is something she really needs right now! When you donated she texted me with such excitement! 🙂 THANK YOU!
