|A little sneak peek of one of the custom designed printables!|
The summer event of the season is finally here… B's Very Jersey BBQ! That's right, she's trekking out to my territory and hosting a fabulous neon themed BBQ this weekend! So not only does that mean lots of gal'ing at the actual party, but bonus gal time leading up to it with all of the party prep - yay!! We're kicking things off today with some last minute crafting, cocktail taste testing, and lots and lots of catching up, thanks to the running list B has been keeping of all things that we must discuss when we are reunited! And not to worry, there will be a fullll post with all of the neon-y details of this amazing event.
TWO | Baby M's Monster Mash
|My little monster|
Now that it's August, I'm officially in hardcore party planning mode for Baby M's big first birthday extravaganza! We've decided to do a monster theme, mainly because I found tons of cute monster-y ideas on Pinterest. So to kick things off, I designed some Monster Mash invitations, and decided to include a picture of Baby M dressed up in his finest monster gear. The above is a couple of the adorable pics from our photo shoot and I'm already obsessed with the theme!
THREE | Beach-y Weekending
This past weekend I was finally able to get to the beach which also meant it was Baby M’s first official trip to the beach! GG and I had off from work on Friday, so we headed down to the shore on Thursday night and met up with friends on Friday. It was such a great day, and Baby M absolutely loved it! He had a blast splashing around in the water, taking in the sights of the boardwalk and dining al fresco with an ocean view (oh and eating the sand by the fistful!). All in all it was a really great weekend and I’m counting down the days until we have another free day and can go back!
FOUR | Nordstrom Sale Picks
I know I’m suuuper late to the party, but I placed a big ole order on Nordstrom.com in honor of their amazing anniversary sale, and I just received my goodies this week! While I did some initial browsing in store, I find that their selection is much better online, plus I can never resist getting an added bonus from Ebates when ordering online. And as a final bonus, since I ordered a beauty item, I snagged 3 free product samples too.. seriously while I love the instant gratification of shopping in store, you really can’t beat the amazing deals you can get online! The above is a collage of my picks.. I may have gone a bit overboard, but it is their trademark sale, and I just had to take advantage of it!
FIVE | New Alex & Ani Bracelet
I know I've professed my love of Alex & Ani before, so I was so excited to pickup a new bangle to add to my stack! I was picking up a couple for my two sisters' birthdays and just couldn't resist getting one for myself (and luckily they are pretty reasonably priced, so I didn't feel too bad). I picked up my birthstone gem of Amethyst and I love the way it gives a little color to my gold stack!
So excited to be linking up with Amanda, Jennie, Amy, Karli, and Lauren - thanks Gals for hosting today's link-ups!
