Is it just me or are 3 day weekends exhausting?! I’m so wiped from all of the activities we attended that when the boys started asking for breakfast at 7am I just wanted to hit snooze!
Here is what we were up to this weekend!
We attended an adorable outside bash for an equally adorable 1 year old! This year I started renting a desk in a studio share and not only has it been amazing to work outside of my house. No, doing laundry and juggling a client project while I’m there, but it’s also introduced me to new people! As an adult it’s so hard to make friends and being in the studio space has bought about many new friendships with fellow creative mommas. One in particular is Jackie from, Sincerely Jackie and The Everyday Mother. We got along immediately when we went and the days we are in the studio together we do a lot of chatting while we work. During those chats I learned that Jackie HELLP Syndrome while she was pregnant with her first child. She had to deliver 14 weeks early and her son, Richie was in the NICU for 99 days! Richie was a total miracle so, I was honored to attend his 1st birthday party!
Fellow studio mate Allison from Allison Vaz Designs did the beautiful calligraphy on the chalkboard sign.
Beautiful color filled photobooth back drop. I was in awe of the pretty shades she had, because I had never seen rolls of it in those shades and Jackie let me in on a little secret! She had actually bought crepe paper, which has a lot more color options and then sliced them into the width of traditional rolls. Genius!
The party was outdoors, so the perfect party menu was burgers and hot dogs plus all of the fixins! I loved the cute signage and giggled a little too much with the part about nibbling Richie’s buns. Hehe. Yes, I’m a 5 year old.
On Sunday we had a big BBQ to attend and I got dolled up in my new favorite skirt, from Zara! I tried to keep my phone away and be present so, that’s literally the only shot I took!
On Monday the parties kept coming! We headed out to brunch to celebrate Jon’s sisters birthday! She loves her dog Harry and requested a dog stroller for her birthday! I wasn’t sure if she was serious, but I got confirmation, that she did in fact want one, so I picked up this dog stroller and this dog carrier as well.
They both loved it. Harry is obsessed with Jenn carrying in so, while he was confused at first once he settled into it he actually fell asleep in it!
