For the party I had 18 close friends over for a festive dinner that my mommala sweetly threw for me with the help of A Fare Extraordinaire. They did an INCREDIBLE job and I would like to take a moment to brag on them here- but I can’t. Because my lovely friend that took the pictures from the evening is MIA and refuses to send them to me. Which is a bummer because they really did such a wonderful job and I would love to show you, just trust my good word and if you are in need of catering services in the Houston area, look ‘em up.
And if you think things like this shouldn’t happen, and that I should always be able to share visual wonderfulness with you, I agree. Now go buy me a camera.
My friends. I have THE most incredible, thoughtful, sweet, talented friends.
Homemade gift #1: Champagne cookies from my dear friend Emily who figured if I can’t drink it, I might as well be able to delight in champagne in cookie form. Gooood thinking Emily. And I can’t believe you made these.
Homemade gift #2: My bestie Mayzrs boyfriend Nick is in law school by day and a talented artiste by night and made Pete and I this amazing shadowbox/painting/collage piece made entirely out of fireworks. You cant even see in these dumb camera phone pics how incredible the detail is.
Homemade gift #3: My dear friend and crafty-karen extraordinaire Belen made our baby the following:Umm yeah. Handmade. With the pictures of our beloved puppies we used on our wedding save-the-dates.
HAND-STITCHED FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!That. Is special.
Today I have a not so much fun Doctor’s appointment. They are going to rob me of like a gallon of my blood while I try to be brave and not weep.
But then tomorrow I have a REALLY fun Doctor’s appointment, so check back sooooon!
