Thoughts For Friday

My sweet sister turns the big 30 on Sunday (yep our birthdays are exactly one week apart) and I can’t wait to help her celebrate. First up is I am going to attempt to make Cucumber Basil Martinis. I had them once in NYC and they were amazing! Our Lychee Martinis were so good I am now inspired to try some other fun cocktails!

I am also thinking this dip will be made as an appetizer. Baked Hummus and Spinach Dip.

I have been working on some coffee table styling this week. Loving all the fresh azaleas in our yard I can clip for vases!

I was inspired by this pretty table. Love the stacks of books, but bowls with matches= a really bad idea with a toddler!

I am so excited because I won a ticket to the Rag and Bone fashion show here in Charleston today. I am going with my fav gal Chassity and could not be more excited! Hardest thing is deciding what am I going to wear! I will report back Monday with details.

I am so wanting a pair of hot pink shoes. I really want these Tory Burch Aine Thong Sandals and they are 20% off right now on Bloomingdales for their Friends and Family Event. But they are still darn expensive. However I do have some birthday gift cards I could use and I always love my Tory shoes years later. They hold up so well.

My second thought is these Dolce Vita Sandals. Pretty cute right? At $69 compared to $220. Decisions, Decisions!

Have ya’ll seen these pictures of Stacey Keibler in a bikini? Wow! She is major motivation for me, the perfect figure!

I am obsessed with this glam nursery I saw on Pinterest. If I ever have a baby girl this is happening. Who am I kidding this just might happen for a baby boy too. Love how sophisticated it is!

Enjoy your weekends Dolls! I leave you with this!

    Have a great time at the fashion show! And you know I am dying over the hot pink TB sandals! They are on my list too! Have fun celebrating your sisters birthday! Hubs and I have a big date night tonight! So pumped!
    Have a great weekend sweet Natalie!

    Go with the Dolce's for sure. I am getting a little tired of logo, so hence my suggestion. They have a bit of a dressier feel as well! Report back on the cocktail making and fashion show attire. Can't wait to hear it all!

    So exciting re:Rag and Bone fashion show. Can't wait to see what you decided to wear! I like the DV sandals. They are cute and affordable. Love your coffee table styling, too.

    Have fun at the fashion show! I think Bloomingdales is one of the Ebates features this week, so you could get another 3-5% back from your purchase if you go through there! Have a great weekend… that martini looks awesome.

    I ordered the DV sandals in nude. They had great reviews on PLime, but personally, I thought they looked cheap. I wish they were made of leather.

    As for cocktails, if you like champagne (who doesn't?), then I recommend a St. Germain cocktail. It's just St. Germain (elderflower liquor) and champagne. Yum!

    holy crap I love your coffee table!!! It looks amazing girl! And, my sister and I were born exactly one week apart too. So funny! Have a fab weekend my friend!

    Stacey looks emaciated to me–I'm all for thin, but that looks unhealthy to me!

    Have fun at the fashion show! There is a cucumber drink at either Oku or Macintosh. I'm warning you – do not try it. It tastes like you're drinking ocean water. Ohhh my gosh that girl is so skiiiiny.

    That fashion show sounds like so much fun!! You two girls are just the cutest. I know you will have a blast. And take pics so we can see what you guys wore! šŸ™‚

    Oooh that cocktail looks delish! Have you ever tried a rose martini? They are so refreshing and yummy!

    Have a great weekend!

    I got some pink suede sandals from Jcrew that I LOVE. They weren't cheap though.

    OMG now I know why George is dating her!! I could starve myself and work out 6 hours a day and then MAYBE I would look like that since we are the same height. šŸ™‚

    I actually prefer the Dolce Vita sandals over the TB. Dare I say it….they actually look more expensive!

    PS, I hate you for showing that photo of SK. OK, hate is a strong word, but I didn't need to see that right after I ate a chocolate chip cookie šŸ™

    Have fun at the fashion show!!! Can't wait to see what you pick to wear. I love your coffee table. It looks so good šŸ™‚ I LOVE TB shoes, however I have been eyeing the Dolce Vita sandals for a while too and think I would go with those.

    I went to a fashion show thurs night and it took forever to figure out what I was going to wear…

    my favorite summer drink is cucumber vodka with club soda. yummy

    have fun celebrating with your sister

    Loving the nursery too! Expecting in August – always on the lookout for great ideas.
    Enjoy the cucumber martinis for me. Sounds divine!
