Weekend Recap {Birthday, Bachelorette & A Break}

What a whirl wind of a weekend. It started Friday with a marathon session of homework, piano lessons & finally a much deserved night out at Bestie H's house for a Park Lane jewelry party. I placed quite a few lovely pieces on order including this  necklace

Saturday morning Belle & I had our library date. Getting the chance to meander through the aisles of books without two younger brothers in tow is quite a special treat. After selecting an assortment of titles, we ran back home to pick up the boys & Hubby for a birthday party.

Bestie B's beautiful daughter E turned 5 and celebrated at the horse ranch we visited over the summer. The birthday girl looked beyond darling in her fall dress and cowboy boots. She was perfectly dressed for the hayride.

Sadly, Belle had to leave early for ballet class as she is now an assistant in the class preceding hers. She is beyond thrilled to be helping, but it means she doubles her time at the studio on Saturdays. 

Once Belle & I returned from ballet, she headed out to YiaYia Terry & Papou Yiannis' house with Hubby & the boys while I prepared for a night out at Bestie A's bachelorette party. I can not believe that the wedding is less than 1 week away!!! Peanut's tuxedo (tails gals…I die!!) comes in Wednesday & speaking of attire I still don't have a dress. 

Today I secured a substitute for my Sunday School class to allow for some much needed morning recovery. After the craziness of Friday & Saturday and in anticipation of the weekend to come, it was so night just to hang at home and do whatever struck our fancy.

We played outside.

Honed our Rainbow Loom skills.

Made peach crisp from the last of YiaYia & Bopi's amazing peach tree.

I even got a chance to put up fall decorations (pics tomorrow) & go for a jog without an entourage.

Hubby is settled in for Sunday night football & I'm going to do some cleaning for the cleaning lady (don't you love that) before scouring the web for a dress for the wedding. If you've got any suggestions please send them my way! 

Hope this weekend was a lovely end to your summer & even lovelier start to your fall.


  1. What a fun and busy weekend!! I can't wait to see the fall decor :)

  2. Wow! I'm exhausted just reading that! You were a busy girl! Love that necklace and as always, your family is beautiful!


Thanks so much for taking a minute to share your thoughts with me! I love reading each of them. Have a great one.
