This past weekend we threw a Birthday party for Sterling. My sweet boy turned 5 Monday and I am still in shock. I love both my children the same but there is just something about your first born. He came into my life and made me a mom for the first time and changed my life forever- in the best way possible. I love him more than words could ever describe.
We decided to have a few of our closest friends over to our house for a Valentines Oyster Roast and Birthday Party for Sterling. It worked out perfectly because in my opinion Valentines is usually lame ( like New Years).
Sterling of course wanted a Spongebob Cake so I had to oblige.
He also wanted a mask decorating station. I actually found all this stuff at the Dollar Store!
My whole family was able to come in town minus my brother and sister law who we really missed!
I can only hope I am as much fun as my parents when I reach their age.
Love them so much.
A few of my favorite ladies. Always thankful for my best friends.
Still can not believe this guy is 5!
Thanks to my friend Nicola, I am now addicted to this yogurt. It is hands down the best yogurt I have ever had. This week at Harris Teeter they are buy one get one free.
Ladies what should I read next? I just finished Jane Green's Saving Grace which I loved, always love her books and now I need something new. Thinking either: The Kitchen House or The Girl On The Train. I want something that sucks you right in.
Or any other recs?
I can't stop thinking about this Alexa Chung dress. I think it is so cute. Wondering if it would be flattering in person, but I love the chambray and off shoulder detail.
My blouse I ordered from Piperlime arrived this week and I love it!! The embroidery is so pretty in person. It is light weight (made of gauze) so I think I can wear it all Summer. I think it will be great with jean shorts. I am in a size small runs TTS.
Made the most delicious blueberry muffins this week. The recipe is from Martha Stewart and you can find it HERE. I cooked mine a touch too long so don't cook them as long as the recipe calls for, I think they would have been a little better not so done.
I splurged on a new Chanel nail polish. You can see it in the above picture. It is the perfect gray that I think you can wear anytime of the year. Chanel polishes are pricey but they last forever and are formaldehyde free.
I got so exited when I saw the preview for the new Housewives. Apparently they are going down under to Melbourne. Always love a new cast.
All the Gigi New York Date Books are 50% off. This is my second year using one and I love it!
I have the Rose Gold Metallic version and what I love most is there is a calendar at the front and then lots of space each day to write my do-to list.
Happy almost Friday!
