My Weekend Lookbook: September 27-28, 2014

Good morning and happy Monday to you! Here is just a peek at what I was up to this weekend…

 

Photo 1. Okay, first off, I love to cook… honestly, I love it! And, ever since we got back from our honeymoon, I’ve gotten all Leave It to Beaver and have been whipping up some pretttttty domestic menus. If we are giving out awards, the whole chicken I roasted this weekend gets the gold metal. Also, I’m not sure there is anything more June Cleaver than this dish!

 

Photo 2. On Saturday I attended little Sadie’s first birthday party! I cannot believe she is one, and I cannot believe B is a mom! It’s crazy!! Seriously, it feels like it was just yesterday when I was in that hospital room cuddling my new best friend! There is nothing quite a sweet as witnessing your besties become moms! Happy Birthday Miss Sadie B! P.S. Sadie’s invites were just the CUTEST! P.P.S. Also, we gave her that little bumble bee scooter, which I thought was the cutest thing ever, but Sadie has mixed feelings… I’m thinking they will become best friends soon, but right now she is playing some major hard to get!

 

Photo 3. Last but not least, I attended and spoke at Blog Fete this weekend! I was so excited to return this year as a speaker alongside Mandy, Sarah, Carmen, and Kori! Not only did we have the best time chatting about what we do best, but we also had so much fun getting to know all of the attendees! And, if that wasn’t enough… I brought a whole table of ABD goodies and my girl Charlotte worked the table like a pro! Honestly, sometimes it’s hard to call this work!

P.S. See more of the conference here–> #BlogFete2014 & #BlogFete ! I hope your weekend was equally as lovely, but for now I am off to go get this week started! Cheers to an extra fabulous and productive week!! xx

My Weekend Lookbook: September 14-21, 2014

Happy Monday, friends! I know this post is a little tardy (with it being 5:00 in the afternoon and all), but I thought, better late than never! Plus I just HAD to share a few photos from our honeymoon!! And, oh! If you didn’t know… I got married last week to this dreamy guy! So, here is just a peek at what I’ve been up to the past week…

Photo 1. Our first stop on our week-long California honeymoon was the Ritz-Carlton in Halfmoon Bay. It was, as you can see, something straight out of a fairytale. And to put icing on the cake, the team at the Ritz sent us over a very special delivery that included a hand written note on the custom stationery I illustrated for them. Pretty sure I died and went to heaven.

Photo 2. Our second stop, was Napa Valley! We stayed at the tiniest bed and breakfast and vineyard hopped! It was the best. The weather was incredible and the people in Napa are just the sweetest! And to put a cherry on top of our Napa trip, my sweet husband surprised me with a beautiful sunset dinner at Auberge du Soleil. Not only was the food amazing and the surprise incredibly thoughtful, but his comment on why he picked this place really made my whole night … “I saw that you pinned it, so I thought you must REALLY want to go there!!” The sweetest.

Photo 3. Our last stop was San Francisco! We had the best time being coffee snobs (hello Four Barrel Coffee… why are you so delicious!!!!???) and sight-seeing until our little feet couldn’t walk any further! Neither of us had ever been to San Fran, so each had a few things that we really wanted to see, and on the tippity top of my list were The Painted Ladies, and oh my gosh are the pretty! I studied The Painted Ladies in Interior Design school, and of course being a child of the nineties, I absolutely NEEDED to see where the opening scene in Full House was filmed. You know, #priorities.

Anyways, I hope your weekend/week was equally as lovely as mine was… and hopefully you enjoyed our #ABDTakeoverWeek as much as we did, but for now I am off to go get dinner in the oven!! Cheers to an extra fabulous and productive week!! xx

My Weekend Lookbook: September 6-7, 2014

 

Good morning and happy Monday to you! Here is just a peek at what I was up to this weekend…

Photo 1: This weekend I attended one of my best girls’ bachelorette party! We did it up big: from a beach day in matching “Ally + Nick” tank tops, to a very fancy slumber party with homemade ice cream sundaes. Not sure we could have had more fun if we tried!!

P.S. My ABD Ice Ice Baby Tumbler is PERFECT for the beach…it’s the first time I have taken it to the beach, and gosh was it cuuuute.

Photo 2: After all day at the beach, we came home and got all gussied up for a fancy night out on the town, and of course… a round of margaritas!!

P.S. Doesn’t the bride-to-be look adorable in her Space 46 tutu!?!

Photo 3: Let’s be honest, a slumber party would not be complete without fresh donuts from our favorite local bakery! These poor donuts didn’t stand a chance… they were all gone in 3 minutes flat, but then again, who can resist a chocolate glazed with sprinkles!!?

I hope your weekend was equally as lovely, but for now I am off to go get this week started! Cheers to an extra fabulous and productive week!! xx

My Weekend Lookbook: August 23-24, 2014

Good morning and happy Monday to you! Here is just a peek at what I was up to this weekend…

Photo 1. I went and saw Peter Pan! First off, how have I never been to Peter Pan? I have seen the movie of course, but never the actual show! It was so stinkin’ cute!! And now I want to carry glitter around in my pockets and fly!!

Photo 2. I had a little slumber party at my parents’ house this weekend–is there anything quite as fun?!

Photo 3. I have tons of little cousins, and I just L-O-V-E buying them birthday presents… seriously, it’s my favorite! Inside this pink fluffy package is a princess tent. I repeat: a princess tent. Honestly, I wanted to keep it.

I hope your weekend was equally as lovely, but for now I am off to go get this week started! Cheers to an extra fabulous and productive week!! xx

My Weekend Lookbook: August 16-17, 2014

Good morning and happy Monday to you! Here is just a peek at what I was up to this weekend…

Photo 1. I love all things girly, which we all know… but one girly item that I am not super fond of is perfume! It always gives me an INSTANT headache and so I never wear it! Over my birthday my sweet friend over at Space 46 Boutique sent me over a whole Jo Malone sample gift set of TONS of different scents, and I instantly fell in love with Wild Bluebell and used my sample bottle til it was dry! So, over the weekend, you can imagine my excitement when this little box was all wrapped up and sitting on my coffee table from my main squeeze! Now I smell as girly as I look! Ha!

Photo 2. My sister threw an ADORABLE “Lilly and Donuts” themed bridal shower for her bestie over the weekend! There is nothing better than getting all dressed up and showering your favorite bride with trinkets for her new home, all the while sipping champagne and having girl talk! It’s the best! I’ve never met a shower brunch I didn’t like! And, per usual, my sister killed it!

Photo 3. I stopped by my favorite little antique shop this weekend and picked up this pretty little hand painted trinket box! It’s so sweet and dainty and the perfect size to hold my new favorite piece of jewelry!

I hope your weekend was equally as lovely, but for now I am off to go get this week started! Cheers to an extra fabulous and productive week!! xx

My Weekend Lookbook: August 8-10, 2014

Good morning and happy Monday to you! Here is just a peek at what I was up to this weekend…

Photo 1. Okay, so first off…. there is only one photo in my Weekend Lookbook today, mostly because Friday night was so magical that I completely forgot to take photographs the rest of the weekend! Also, let’s be honest, I was distracted by this guy! Anyways, as you might have gathered from last night’s instagram, I got engaged over the weekend–and we couldn’t be any more smitten. Ryan proposed on Friday night, and it was both incredibly beautiful and romantic. Also, I was completely surprised, hence my little red nose from all my happy tears. This is officially my favorite Weekend Lookbook ever.

I could totally babble on and on… but apparently it’s Monday, and I have a list 3 miles long, so I am off to go get this week started! Cheers to an extra fabulous and productive week!! xx
