The Best Kind of Girl’s Night

 

Perfecting the “Grown Up” Girls Night!

The older I get, the more I look forward to girl’s nights! During college we were all constantly together, we rolled in a pack and were 100% inseparable. We went out together, got ready for parties in one big bathroom together, we studied together, we just did all of life together… and it was the best. But over the past few years we’ve each gotten married and most of them have already had little ones of their own, so our girl’s nights look a lot different, but to be honest, they are so much better.

B’s Baby Shower!

 

It’s A Girl!

Over the weekend I threw Betsy, my bestie who just so happens to also be our wholesale and customer service director, a baby shower! Betsy is having her second baby girl (eek!) and I couldn’t have been any more excited to whip up a special day just for her. 

The shower turned out so lovely and the food ended up being amazing (I always get nervous about the food! I make Ryan taste everything, twice.) and she was showered with ALL of the monogrammed gifts a momma-to-be could ask for! It ended up just being the best day!

Let’s Be Real, Milkshakes are ALWAYS a Good Idea! 

Growing up, milkshakes were one of those things we rarely had, but when we did it was a BIG DEAL, and always initiated by my dad. I have a soft spot in my heart for a good ole’ fashioned milkshake, so I thought it would be fun to whip up a milkshake with a twist for you today!

So, if you didn’t already know… Father’s Day is THIS weekend. I can’t right now with June. It’s literally FLYING by!
