Happy Friday!

Happy Friday all!  I have a lot going on this weekend and the distinct feeling that June is going to fly by super fast!  Our weekends are already filling up with activities.  For instance on Sunday we are helping host a Cake-off party! So I'm off for one more attempt to find some vintage cake stands at thrift stores (& then I'm giving up!).  There are maybe 10 people competing with cakes and I don't know how many guests.  I have no idea how it is going to go honestly but it should be some tasty fun!

Workwear Wednesday

Yeah, yeah.  I'm still obsessing over navy blue & white.  Actually it's what I'm wearing today, cinched with a braided leather belt.  Isn't that crazy how braided belts are in now?  I remember seriously making fun of my mom for wearing them throughout the 90's. But anyway, onward with Workwear Wednesday & I'll try to limit the navy & white!  Oh, did I forget to mention I'm also obsessing over stripes?

Tuesday Shoesday!

Like many people, I'm completely done in by the nautical look this season & am particularily obsessed with anything navy & white striped!  I may not have an extra $379 to spend on these adorable heels from Anthropologie, but I can dream right???

Scenes From Last Monday: ForeverTV Party!

So last Monday we were super happy to be attending a red carpet event at the Guthrie thrown by ForeverTV for Twin Cities wedding industry professionals!   What can I say?  We had a blast!  I attended the swanky affair with my husband (& Laura Whitney Couture's web guru) Dylan and our good friend Holly.  Of course we HAD to arrive in style so we took the Comet which is always fun especially when you're fabulously dressed!  So Dylan, in his ultra cool vintage tuxedo and I, in my red bombshell dress, swung over to pick up Holly and then were off the the big event.

When we arrived we walked the red carpet and headed inside.  ForeverTV host Amanda Day was outside filming an episode, interviewing several of the guests.  Once inside, the party started without hesitation.  If you've never been, the interior of the Guthrie is seriously posh!  We're talkin' swank-tastic!  Several talented bartenders were serving up cocktails & well dressed waiters carried around trays of nibbles while a DJ pumped out surprisingly good beats.  If you were elsewhere in Minneapolis that night wondering "where da honey's at?" it was because all the beautiful people were at this event!  And it didn't take long before my guys Matt & Jacob from Traveling Photo Booth Co. found me!  (Don't tell but I cheated on them with another photo booth that night!  Shhh!)  Mid-party ForeverTV's Amanda Day and the shows producer Charles Even Eide stood up to speak and to thank everyone for attending.  They were certainly the gracious hosts whom I had a chance to meet later in the evening outside on the endless bridge.  Besides seeing old friends and meeting new ones, this was just an all around fun event to attend.  There were a lot of very cool things like live mannequins, a candy bar, beautiful table displays, Miss Minnesota was in attendance, there was dancing and of course great people watching!   All in all, a great time!
