Weekend Recap

Baby Shower || My amazing friends threw me my first baby shower this past weekend and I was seriously blown away! The amount of thought, love, time and hard work that they put into it was unbelievable and I am so incredibly thankful. Plus, it was the most beautiful party I’ve ever been to. I can’t wait to do a post about it to show off my friends’ creativity and talent.  And can we talk about the food? They had all of my favorite foods as of late including donuts, tomato soup with grilled cheeses, macaroons and more. Now I have that day after Christmas depressed feeling which totally blows, but I have another shower this next weekend and then of course, I’ll be having baby in a few weeks! Ahhhhhhhhh

Shoe Shopped || After being showered and spoiled by my friends, I decided to do a little harmless “browsing” at the mall and found about 85 pairs of shoes I wanted to buy. I decided I needed a pair of motorcycle boots and these Nike high tops at J. Crew, but I have been spending my life savings on the nursery so I don’t think I should be splurging on shoes for myself right now. Fortunately, my birthday and Christmas are around the corner so they have been officially added to my wish list!

Girlfriend Time || One of the best parts of my weekend was having tons of girlfriend time. I was super happy to visit with so many at my shower and  was lucky enough to have some of my best friends come in from San Diego and Houston for the weekend! We’re usually lucky if we can fit a girls night in on the weekend, but to have a full two days was amazing.

Hair Obsession || I realized a long time ago that my hair is lame and there is no point to bother with it! It doesn’t hold curls, it has no volume and if I don’t wash it every 24 hours, it looks like I I just took a grease bath. But, I got my hair cut at the Songbird Society this past weekend and they used this R + Co Sea Salt spray on my hair before drying and a miracle happened. I actually had volume! I thought, well I can’t repeat this miraculous look on my own, but I went ahead and bought the spray along with some dry shampoo {which will be my best friend when baby comes} in wishful hopes that I could achieve the look again. I still need to practice, but I used the sea salt the night before the shower, slept in a little bun and in the morning, I actually had beachy waves! I mean, not Lauren Conrad beachy waves or anything, but still, she better watch her back. ha

NOW DECORATING || Dining Room Reveal

The Now Stylebook Dining Room Moulding BeforeIt’s been quite some time since I did a dining room update and I am happy to say that after five years of procrastinating, unsuccessfully working with decorators, scouring the internet, local shops and looting my parent’s home, the room is complete {well we need a few pieces of art and curtains but 95% complete}!!! The last time I posted, we were in the middle of adding moulding to the walls of the dining room and connecting living room. Since then we have had it painted, hung the mirror and started working on the aforementioned living room. Oy!   Read more to see the finished look!  Continue reading
