Friday Favorites and Happenings

This week was such a busy week. Between my friend being in town, prepping for travel and trying to get everything set at my house, I feel like I was a chicken with my head cut off. Plus I was loading up on all of the Emergen-C, so I didn't pick up the cold that Rory and Avery had. I felt like I had something coming on earlier in the week, but fortunately, I caught it in time.

Onto Friday Favorites and Happenings.

ONE. Last weekend I went to my best friend's baby shower. She flew in from Norman, Oklahoma to let us shower her and baby Charlotte. She lived here for a long time, but had to move to Norman with her husband for his job. We are crossing our fingers that they move home soon.

Anyways, this baby shower was held at the Beckwith Gallery which was a beautiful venue. Everything was perfect. We had champagne (fake champagne for the mama-to-be), amazing salad, fruit, coconut macarons, cookies, cheeses  and cake.

We each sat by Nathalie as she opened her gifts from that person and then took photos. She gave a beautiful speech about how much love she and baby Charlotte felt and we spent the afternoon catching up. After the baby shower, some of us went to another place and spent the rest of the day catching up. It was perfect!

Here is a glimpse at her shower.

Nathalie and I. Nathalie and I have been friends for about 13 years now. Our friend introduced us in a bar and we became fast friends. She was my maid of honor and I was a bridesmaid in her wedding. Rory and I set up her and her husband. She is seriously the most amazing person.

TWO. Did you see my post from Wednesday on my beautiful new business cards from Basic Invite? I am soooo loving these business cards. You can use Basic Invite for your thank you cards, invitations, stationary and so much more!

THREE. Last weekend I went out with one of my twin mom friends. We had drinks and some snacks at a bar while finishing the Nevada Wolf Pack basketball game and then headed to another bar to watch an amazing band play. It was a lot of fun. But the best part? I broke out those heels I bought from Nordstrom Rack and an older J Crew silk tank top. I loved the look of the entire outfit, so I went back on J Crew (Factory this time) and found a similar top and bought it in a bright pink for the Spring/Summer. I plan on wearing this shirt to Rory's birthday dinner. I will pair it with a black blazer, some jeans and my black Vince Camuto heels.

FOUR. I have been wanting some white jeans for Spring. I am probably crazy since I have four year old twins who put their dirty hands on everything, but I haven't had white jeans in forever. Last week, American Eagle had a sale of 30% off all of there jeans, so I took the opportunity to add a pair of white jeans to my closet. I was hoping they would have been here in time for the baby shower I went to last weekend, but they didn't make it on time. But you best believe that I will be wearing these all Spring and Summer.
