North Carolina Christening Weekend

This past weekend, I was in North Carolina visiting BFF Meg for Elizabeth's Christening. From the minute I stepped out of the airport, I had a blast. The weather was amazing and a very welcome relief from the Miami heat. Right from the airport, we headed to South Park and did some shopping. I tried to take some pics during lunch but someone wasn't in the mood to pose..


Then she flashed this sweet smile...I put my camera away for a while..not to overdo

little Elizabeth

We headed to Cornelius and settled in with the girls. Meg made yummy dinner and we sampled some Skinny Girl Margaritas. After several of them, we started to question how much alcohol is really in them..don't tell Bethenny but we called shenanigans.

Friday morning, we took care of morning naps and then headed to Birkdale..my favorite outside mall North of Bal Harbour. A quick peek inside Poppies and a dash into my favorite Gap and then we went back and got ready for a little trip.


Next stop..Statesville to Meg's parents' home. We had a big steak dinner that night..cooked on a crazy big new grill. It took the whole grilling process up a notch for sure.




Me and Tef, the grilling expert. He came to North Carolina with his own special rub for the steaks..and he didn't get caught by any TSA agents.

Meg's Dad at the bar

This situation here is my perfect setup..icemaker, nice glasses, sliced lime wedges and an endless supply of diet coke.

The next morning, the horses were saddled up and we headed off for a ride.

Heading back to the barn..I was trying to snap pics and kept messing with the reins and then my horse would start heading the wrong way..you shouldn't try to be a horse riding photographer




Max with Sassy the lamb and Buster the goat..they are bff

Then the pony came out...

and then..a dance party on the porch



Sunday morning, we all got up and ready for Church. Elizabeth's big day! We got there with plenty of time to take some pictures. During the service, she was a perfect angel.

Elizabeth is such a gorgeous baby! And, that grill looks suspiciously like something one would find at the South American cannibal camp. Feel like I tried on your friend's dress somewhere. Billy Reid??? XXOO

ps...finally made it to the FABULOUS Rooster's Nest but didn't see your pieces. I saw some jewelry but none with your tag :(
