{Feathers, Food, and Fall}

It's Monday...boo...

So to make me feel better, I'm going to remissness about my awesome weekend!

Sound good? 

Awesome! 

This weekend was busy, busy, busy but so much fun! 

Let's start off with Friday night, shall we?

We were honored to be invited {by Wendel's cousin} to the Cincinnati  Zoo's big fundraiser, Zoofari. 

Ya'll...it was a blast! Amazing food, lots of cool people, and animals around every corner! A preschool teacher's dream, right?

Oh and did I mention it was black tie so we got to get all dressed up? 

Yup...most important fact, right? 

I kind of went all out and had a father head piece made by a woman I follow on Instagram...can't wait for our daughter to rock this out someday! 


Dress: White House Black Market/Feather Awesomeness: A Tiny Arrow/Shoes: DSW/Earrings: Etsy/Bracelets: J.Crew and White House Black Market 

Ya'll...this dress...I love! I can't wait to wear it with tights and boots this fall!



Sorry for the rest of the photos...all iPhone and bad lighting! 

But can I just say...Wendel cleans up quite well :) 



So we had our own little cabana...I'll be honest...it was awesome! 



The perfect spot to come and relax for a bit!






The food was "dinner by the bite" All of the amazing Cincinnati restaurants were there passing out little plates from their place. It was so fun to walk around and take a taste from the best of the best! We hit some of our favorites, and tried some new places as well! 

I just thought these were so cute...it was beef brisket with a little gravy-filled syringe to squeeze on top...so cute! 


These were tiny ice cream cones that they were dipping in liquid nitrogen so they were all steamy...the picture didn't capture it, but they were amazing. The only thing I went back for a second time. 


It was rainy...like really really rainy, but it was an absolute blast! Crossing our fingers that we get to go again next year!  


Saturday, we got to go and spend some time with some incredibly inspiring married couples at our church. It felt so much like fall, so I pulled out my new Target cowgirl boots and we went to town!

And of course a pumpkin spice latte was thrown in the mix!


Sunday was church, then a Dewey's lunch date, then the Bengals game...and we won! Who Dey!




Then it was family dinner time. We are so blessed to have most of our family within five minutes of each other. Pretty much every Sunday we get together for family dinner, and it's one of my favorite days of the week! Love getting to catch up with everyone and squeeze on the kiddos!  


Few...I'm exhausted just reliving it!

And now it's off for another busy week! 

Happy Fall ya'll!
