Normally Friday's are Dress, Drink, Dine territory, but I don't know, I wasn't feeling it this week. Instead, I'm sharing a bit of what's happening behind the scenes and what I'm loving lately.
Okay, in instagram life, because that is where we all really live these days, amirite? Top row shows my adventures in Gatsby world. I decided to dress up in 20's inspired garb because, well I was bored. I made the headpiece out of a stretchy headband and a vintage bee pin I had lying around since I purchased it at the Alamada flea several years ago. Was happy to put that baby to use. In case you weren't aware, those mini cans of Sophia champagne are perfect for sneaking into a theater. Totes amps the whole theater experience up a notch. Overall I thought the movie was superb. A true feast for the eyes- and I didn't even see it in 3D! Ain't nobody got time for that. No but seriously, that is too advanced for my granny ways. Those darn 3D glasses give me watery eyes. Have you seen it? What did you think?
Moving on to Mother's Day festivities...I attended my last preschool Mother's Day Tea (sob) with my youngest Kara. Next week she graduates from preschool and it leaves me wondering-when did these kids decide to grow up on me? Kara turns five next week and her big birthday shindig is this weekend. The tea party was a western theme, so we donned our best denim, and looked pretty darn cute if I do say so myself. The fam treated me to some yummy treats over the weekend-and like the true selfless mother I am, I let the girls devour over half of what you see there. Lastly we had a fun dinner on the patio of one of my favorite bay area mexican restaurants, El Burro.
There have been a few things I have discovered this week that I feel are worthy of a share (really, it happens less often than it used to, so listen up!):
I don't know where I have been, but I just discovered the blog "How Sweet It Is". This girl crawled into the recesses of my brain and wrote out all my culinary desires in blog form. Also, I think we could totes be best friends IRL, speaking from a total stalker status. I mean, whipped feta? Crispy buffalo oven fries? CHOCOLATE MERLOT CUPCAKES??
These Charlotte Olympia zodiac flats blew my mind- of course they are nearly $700 a pop, what is up with my ridiculously expensive taste?
My long-lost sorority sisters (yeah, I was a sorority girl, don't judge) are planning a weekend getaway in July, and I found this article to come in very handy. Recipes for a Friday night through Sunday brunch (plus cocktails!), all packed in a cooler...great ideas here!
Marina and the Diamonds. This girl is everything. So obsessed with all her music right now. Plus she is from Greece, like me! (Okay, my maternal Great Grandparents were from there, so I'm like 1/4, but whatever). Are you on Spotify? I have her whole album, Electra Hearts, saved there, and eventually bought it on iTunes it's that good. Primadonna, Lies, Homewrecker, How to be a Heartbreaker, Fear and Loathing-all my faves. Peep her out.
Okay, I'm done with my spiel, now it's your turn. Leave me a short story in the comments about what has been going on in your life lately. Trust me, I wanna know.
