I’ve had a smile on my face most of the week and I figured I’d share why with all of you! Here’s a little list of things that have been making me happy lately :)
New earrings – on SALE!
I’ve definitely blogged about how much I love my Kendra Scott Danielle earrings – they are so versatile and pretty, and come in such fun colors (I own hot pink and turquoise)! I was blown away when my mom called me from the Nordstrom Anniversary “Behind the Curtain” pre-sale to tell me that she had just come across two pairs – tiger’s eye and black – for $37 dollars a pair! I couldn’t believe it – that’s a crazy steal, considering they usually retail for $60 each. I have the best mama ever – she surprised me with BOTH!
In the past few months, a few of my really good friends have all had babies, which is just fine with me – I get to hold them and squeeze them and kiss them and spoil them rotten! Anna’s baby Eytan and my friend Rachel’s baby Olivia are only a couple weeks apart, and last weekend I had a BBQ at my house so they could finally meet! The goal of the entire BBQ was so I could get a picture holding both of them at the same time… mission accomplished!
(Bonus baby pictures: here is Eytan watching TV while Greene and I babysat him on Sunday, and here is Olivia looking very serious while wearing a tiny pair of cargo shorts :) how could you look at those faces and NOT be happy!?)
I came across this booth a few weeks ago during one of my Sunday treks to the Brentwood Farmer’s Market – the Charmed Scones ladies were there for the first time and told me they would be there every week from now on! I happily tried their scone samples and was blown away – their flavors were seriously delicious! I went back and bought two different kinds last weekend – bittersweet chocolate and English cheddar – and I can’t believe how delicious they are. If you’re looking for a yummy treat, these are so good!
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2
Okay, this one is making me equal parts happy AND sad. I cannot wait to see how they capture everything from the book – I have a feeling the battle scene at Hogwarts is going to be insane. But I can’t believe that after all these years, the Harry Potter movies are going to be over and done with for good. I love every film so much – if they’re ever playing on TV, I immediately stop what I’m doing and watch the whole thing. I’m so excited!!!
Rami and I leave for Scottsdale TODAY! My bags (yes, multiple bags for three days) are packed, he’s made a road trip playlist, and we’ve got the sunscreen and swimsuits all ready to go for a HOT weekend in Arizona. I am so excited!
Wishing you all a great weekend as well. If you’re in LA, stay the hell off the freeways for the next few days :)
