Insta-Friday, but more like my weekend story

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...


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...

Its not a very good picture, I know.  I have coveted this cabinet since the day we saw it on our anniversary trip to Palm Springs last year.  I immediately started pulling items from my office to put on it.  Here is was I came up with so far.

I am still working on it.  Right now it is covered in flowers and birthday cards.

On Friday, my husband and I took a nice relaxing trip to Catalina for the day.

It turned out to be a beautiful day.

 He even bought me a purple rose.

 I know it is soooo bad but it WAS my birthday!

 Love this PINK hotel.

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 took two hours!  We were smitten.

Here is a quick photo I took through the mirror in my car.  LOVED IT!

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.

Please excuse my messy office.  I was also packing a bag that I didn't know where I was going or how much to I packed it all...literally!

We had an amazingly, crazy, fabulous night.  I will give you all the dets in another post.  But here is a sneak peek...

I can't wait to tell you all about it!

Here are a few other birthday gift items that were pretty fab.

Kenneth Cole bracelet in a super cool sparkly box.

A beautiful swarovski crystal ladybug necklace.

A cute card from my mommy.

I have also been doing lots of Netflix on the ipad while crafting this week.  It's like multitasking...I love that!

Those are a few of the crafyness that I have been working on this week.  They will be displayed this weekend at yet another baby shower.  Yay! I can't wait.

What have you been up to this week.  I know it was a long one.  Join me in the Insta-Friday...everyones doing it!  Until next week...
