I am linking up with Jeannette from Life Rearranged for this Insta-Friday post. Its going to be a LONG one.
It has been one of those crazy whirlwind kinda weeks. If you remember from last week...
IT WAS MY 30TH BIRTHDAY!!!
Thursday night my husband locked me in the family room and told me not to come out. He was totally up to something. Finally he yelled for me to go into my office. I opened the door and saw this...
On Friday, my husband and I took a nice relaxing trip to Catalina for the day.
The next day (Saturday) was to be my fancy dress up dinner night with the family. Everything had been so hush hush around the house, I knew something was up. With my fancy dress bought and my make up appointment scheduled I was excited. I woke up early that morning (I felt like it was Christmas). I was planning on doing my own hair but after I thought better of it. I tried to make an appointment but there was not going to be enough time :( I need to practice a little more on that one.
OK, funny little side story...It seems like my friend, Kristy, and I have the same brain when it comes to fashion. We ALWAYS, and I really mean always dress alike. Sometimes we do it so often we check what the other is wearing before going out. Our signifs think it is totally hilarious. Well on Saturday we both walked out wearing brown and cream stripped sweaters. Then we went to the mall that way.
My make up girl Sarah L. (amazing btw, totally recommend her) had this black eye shadow on that looked SWEET. I knew that was what I wanted the minute I saw it. Well, Kristy picked the same thing. Then we told her about the matching sweater thing and she thought that we did it on purpose. Total junior high moment but oh well. :)
When our make up was finally finished and I do mean finally...it took two hours! We were smitten.
We were in a total rush it get back home and finish getting ready. I still had to do my own hair. This is how it turned out. I didn't love itt, but it was a quick 10 minute updo.
We had an amazingly, crazy, fabulous night. I will give you all the dets in another post. But here is a sneak peek...
Here are a few other birthday gift items that were pretty fab.
