Weekend Recap

Happy It's Monday, yay, said no-one ever. Well this was definitely a doozy of a weekend, mostly because I worked through it all. I guess it sucks, but my wallet sure will appreciate it. So I wanted to do my weekend recap a little bit differently this time, just to try it out. Here are some of the things that went down this weekend.

wowsa, there's my face double time for y'all. Well on Thursday evening my friends and I had a small bridesmaids makeup & hair trial and we quickly turned that into a girl's night in. I asked the makeup girl to show me how I would look for the daytime & evening since I was going to do a change of face for each. She decided to Jekyll & Hyde me up (with my permission of course). In the top image, the right side of my face is the daytime look and the left side is the nighttime look. I am loving both sides of my face and can't wait for the day of getting my full face! With the hair, the bride-to-be wanted us to try out some romantic side updo's. Now I'm not a huge fan of updo's, but I agreed because it's her wedding. Of course we turned to Pinterest for some "pinspiration".

I think she did a pretty great job working with the inspiration that we were looking for. What do you guys think??

I got these beauties (from the Nordstrom shoe sale, thanks Niki for the heads up)! I really wanted the grey suede ones, but I chose these because I had to have these shoes and boy am I glad I went with these!!! They fit like a glove and I cannot wait to wear them out real soon!

Later that evening, my friend and I met up to watch Wolf of Wall Street.  I thought it was such a good movie and so worth the long wait I went through (my friend was traveling in Southeast Asia and wanted me to wait for him to get back before we saw it). I did think it was too long, but that just meant more Leo time!! I highly recommend you watch this if you haven't.

Saturday was spent at work pretty much half of my day, then I came home and took a much needed nap. I woke up to the surprise that my dad had ordered my favorite deep dish pizza from Georgio's!! So. much. sauce!!!

Later that evening (yes I am way more productive at night), I baked and decorated these lovely cupcakes for my coworkers baby shower for the next day. She is obviously having a girl (if all the pink didn't give it away). I made these as a part of the party favors (just put these bad boys in a Chinese take out box that I found at the Targs).

This was my OOTD for the shower. Went for a flowy top, jeans, and boots since it was a gorgeous day. (excuse the unmade bed in the back).

The glowing mama-to-be in the middle with some of our coworkers (bad blogger not pictured because I was playing photog for the day).

Opening gifts and admiring her cake (it was delicious, thanks Costco!)

Cake cake cake!

I had such a blast planning this baby shower for my coworker & friend, she is so sweet and can't wait to finally meet her little bundle of joy in just a few weeks!!

Ended my night in the best possible way with a big bowl of Lucky Charms!

Hope all of you lovers had a fantabulous weekend.

  1. Those cupcakes look so good! I love your boots too.

  2. Yumm I love Lucky Charms!! Would you believe I've never had Chicago deep dish pizza? I love sauce so looks good to me...

  3. That pizza looks BEYOND delicious! thanks for linking up!

  4. I like that updo a lot! That's so cool that you guys get a test run before your friend's wedding. At both of my sister's weddings they just booked all of their bridesmaids appointments with hairdressers they didn't know. I got lucky because the lady that I happened to get did the best job out of everyone!
