Mama in London!

Well it’s been quite some time since I’ve visited the blog and I have no good excuse other than – where does the time go!?

Oh yes, and my laptop died, which can make this whole blog thing a bit tricky. Luckily, my brother agreed to trade his laptop for my iPad…and a few dollars and saved me from emptying my savings account on a new shiny laptop.

And guess who else was in town, MAMA!

Bit by the Homesick Bug

This week has been a bit of a challenge. I’ve caught the homesick bug, cough cough.

Homesickness is such a strange feeling. It’s easy to forget that little pain in your heart when you’re distracted, but when it hits, it hits hard. Maybe the feeling is more like a mosquito bite? When you forget about it, you’re fine. Once that bite starts getting itchy, forrrgetttt about it, you’re done for. No matter what you try, it only seems to get worse.

Wahh. I miss home dammit.

Bachelorette in Boston: Part Two

9AM came pretty quickly, along with a wake up call from the hotel.

Completely relaxed, I probably would have gone back to bed if it wasn’t for our brunch reservation.

Ahhh, good morning Boston.good morning boston

The Bridal Shower

My best friend is getting MARRIED!

MARRIED? She’s going to be a wife to a wonderful man (soon to be hubby). I couldn’t be more thrilled, happy, tearful (happy tears) and excited to celebrate this beautiful day with such a beautiful couple.

I am also the MOH. YEAHHHH, MOH baby! (Maid of Honor or Honour)

How do you begin to plan a shower for the most beautiful, stylish and chic friend? Pinterest.

I created more boards, pinned for hours and overdosed on DIY project ideas and well, I would say, the shower was a success. The bride was gorgeous, the groom, elated, and lots of happy guests. What more could a MOH ask for?

Step one. The theme.

Garden Party Glam: Golds, mint, pinks & lavender with a touch of garden chic.

Step two. The prep.
