:: tuesday things ::
all over the place today….. like most days…..
I wanted to finally share the cabinets yesterday so today I’ll share about the weekend. My weekend was one of the busiest I have had in a long, long time but all with great things!
Friday was an afternoon with one of my best friends kicking of her 30th birthday weekend with nails and things. Then Friday night was my brother in laws birthday dinner at Bar Cocina (I love it there – casual and always good) and then a night of stand-up at The Laugh Factory.
Saturday I was back to celebrating my friends 30th and we ended the night with dinner at STK.
It was even better than my first time there – incredible music and food and great ambiance and people watching. I am obsessed with this place.
We were going to go out to a bar afterwards but the bar was so fun at STK that we stayed. And thank goodness we did because it got NUTS in there. People were dancing on the tables and the waiters were nothing but encouraging of it. The best people watching was that 2 tables over from us was skinny ass JAMES KENNEDY with a blonde on either side of him.
this marks the second bravo sighting for me in 3 months….. I think 2016 is going to be my year people!!!
I am so mad at myself for not going over and taking a picture with him but I figured A. he’s just the WORST (aka the best to watch on TV) so why would I want to make his ego bigger B. sure, he may be like “of course darling” in his accent and take a picture but he could also very easily C. be a total jerk and reject me and then I would have been embarassed even though WHO CARES.
I had lots of liquid courage in me at this point….. and by the time I had build up mayyyyybe enough to go over, he was leaving.
Ugh. Next Bravo Celeb Sighting *please let there be one* I am DOING IT.
Sunday I had
a hangover a baby shower for my girlfriend and then a family birthday dinner in the suburbs. it’s so fun and crazy to have your best friends having babies. It feels like two years ago we were in the dorms in college, not 10. (insert tear steaming down cheek). The shower – and the mom to be – were so beautiful.
thank you to dina for the pics 🙂
3 birthday dinners in 3 nights wore me out, and I am happily eating clean this week because I had some delicious food and booze ALL weekend long.
Yesterday was the 16th Birthday of *NSYNC’s No Strings Attached.
For those of you that didn’t know how in love with them I
this is the shirt I slept in the night before I got married, and then wore all morning before putting on the cute-monogrammed-shirt that most normal adults who are getting married wear.
I would camp out for days for a reunion tour. Dayssssss.
Thank you for the sweet words on our Kitchen Cabinet DIY.
I’m so glad its over….. and now on to the next projects.
Particularly thank you to reader Rayna for sending me this post about the best gray’s to use in your house. It is so helpful, and also so amazing that it is all Ryan Gosling related.
She, and Emily Henderson, swear by Benjamin Moore Gray Owl so I will definitely be getting a sample of that to throw up on the walls!
the grey we sampled up on the walls went Baby Blue RULLL QUICK when the white was next to it. #fail
Dancing With The Stars started last night and it was SO GOOD.
I love that year round I have either Bachelor/Bachelorette/Bachelor in Paradise or DWTS going on for Monday nights.
This should hold me over until Bachelor in Paradise, quickly followed by The Bachelorette 🙂
weekend outfits :
this zara dress has been a favorite winter go to
zara dress – it’s still in stores, but I couldn’t find online!
and this kate spade has been a great fall to winter to spring pick.
the fabric is lighter so it can work for a bunch of different seasons.
kate spade dress : same print, just slightly different cut
oh, and when you’re not feeling you’re best about your appearance, use that filter in snapchat and be like DAMN. I look better than I thought.
who needs botox and wrinkle creams when this erases all of it for you!?
why can’t my forehead always look like that?
where has this been and how did I not find this sooner?!
(slash why can’t the world see me in this filter, but ya know, whatever….)
