a baby shower and a birthday party

Yesterday, I hosted my best friend of almost 18 years, baby shower. It was special not only because this girl is my sister, but it was also on her 23rd birthday! What a wonderful memory. Here are a few pictures.

Elizabeth and her sisters + her mother (who might as well be a sister!)

Together since we were 5!

us + the mamas

23rd birthday cake = strawberry cake, coconut flakes around the bottom + cream cheese icing

Elizabeth has only been craving grilled cheeses and spinach dip in her pregnancy. For her shower, I thought we should do a panini/grilled cheese bar. Here is some of the desert options. Dark, semi-sweet, and milk chocolate. 

A hit: dark chocolate and parmesan cheese... who would have thought?

So thankful for my friendship with this wonderful lady! It was a special day that I could help celebrate not only her birthday but also the future of her soon-to-be beautiful little girl.

I feel like a neglectful mother! Orange you glad I will be back?

Get Your Tights Out

Tights are no longer just for the 3 year-old ballerina heading to dance class or the Sunday church-goer. Tights come in all shapes, forms, and fashions - and they are one of the best accessories for fall.

pretty textured fishnets (not of the tacky kind) on miss Olsen

colors! colors! colors!

accents - here a wonderful kneepad embelishment

polka dots!

Add some tights to your wardrobe this fall + winter. So many ways to wear them.
