Fabulous Girls' Weekend!

Hello blog family!! My apologies for not telling you all about my kick ass weekend that was coming up! I just kinda disappeared, didn't I?? When Rasha text me on Friday night, I was like, oh snap, I forgot to mention my fabulous weekend! But here I am with details and pictures!!

First, though, speaking of Rasha, lookie what I got in the mail on Thursday! This adorable card and beaded ring. They're going to be blog friend rings!!!

The inside says 'You always know how to put me in a happy place' Love you, ladycakes!

Ok. this past weekend my bff Lauren and I hosted a lingerie shower for our bff Kelsey who is getting married in a couple weeks. It was so nice to be reunited, you remember Kelsey and Lauren from this post? My heart and soul. Well, Kelsey thought that I was coming early on Friday morning, like I usually do when I visit. But I was a sneaky one and surprised her Thursday evening at work!!! I have never surprised anyone like that before, but it was the best feeling. She was so excited and so was I!

Then Friday night Lauren and I organized and set up for the shower at one of the other bridesmaid's house. I will let the pictures speak for themselves...

The Lilly plates and napkins were a huge hit!

Kelsey's sash

Hostesses with the mostesses!!

Guest of honor cheesin' for the camera!

Lots of gifts for the honeymoon!

Bridal party minus one

My beautiful best friend bride-to-be!

Then the party moved here!


Let me just say that some of the pictures from The Melting Pot are quite incriminating! Let's just say a good time was had by all, especially the bride and me ;)

Then on Saturday one of the bridesmaids hosted her Second Annual Girls' Day! It was fabulous, complete with delicious food, wine tasting and giveaways. Not to mention she sent us all home with a bottle of the best red wine ev-er!
Wine tasting! There were nine wines. Kelsey and I were a little late for the party so we did wine-tasting on speed. Do you know what that means?? You get a picture like this.....

Ok, so the picture is good. However, we are sitting down for a reason, lol.

Cute wine glasses Carletta had made for the girls day

Lipstick reapplied, check. Standing up, check. 

Pretty fabulous weekend, huh?! And I get to be back with these ladies in two weeks for the wedding!! I did a little shopping this weekend too, and got this adorable dress at Target.

The ruffly top

And the yummo wine? Here it is!

If you don't know it, you need to!

Ok, I think that's enough for now. Tomorrow the second installment of 'welcome to my crib' will be here in blazing glory. Hope you all had a fabulous weekend! I missed youuuuu!! I'm going to catch up now!
