Weekending + A Giveaway

Happy Monday!! This Monday is extra special because it just so happens to be my older sister's birthday!! 
She is without a doubt my best friend! There are two people in this world I would have trusted to do my make-up on my wedding day and the other one happens to be sitting getting her make-up done!! There are no words to describe what an amazing mother, daughter and wife she is - but most of all she is the best sister and I will forever be in awe of all she does and how she manages to look so fabulous while doing so!! 
When I was little I would watch her get ready to go out with friends, I wanted to be just like her and I guess I picked up all her mannerisms because people always say we are identical! Not much has changed and I still watch her get ready when we babysit the kiddies!! Wishing my sister a very Happy Birthday- I'm certain I would not be where I am today without her! 

Onto the weekend!! I mentioned Friday my parents were in town visiting for a few days and they came up to celebrate a couple of birthday's! If you've read my blog for a while then you know how spot on my mom is at picking stuff out for me and this time she really hit it out of the park!! 
I joked with her that she was better than the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale :) Not pictured are the two sweaters, maxi dress and makeup she also found! You'll also notice the crest white strips - my mom definitely reads the blog!! 
We spent Saturday at the beach and the weather totally cooperated!
My two nieces and nephew absolutely adore Gary and I'm chopped liver when he's around. Which I'll be honest is pretty awesome, especially when babysitting and they listen to him because they want "stories!"
My sister recently re-decorated their formal living room and it's quickly become my favorite room in their house!! Riesling on the right is also a favorite of mine - so yummy! 
Sunday afternoon I re-organized my closet. I don't organize nearly enough - but I bought Slim Hangers and have this thing where I need to make sure they all match! Is anyone else like that?
An hour later and everything was back in it's place - slightly more organized! You'll also notice I still need a few more of those skinny hangers - they really are the best and give me so much more space in my basically nonexistent closet!
Sunday night was spent planning!! The upcoming month calls for a new planner and a huge thank you to Ananya for hosting a fabulous giveaway so that I could finally get my hands on a Kate Spade planner!! 

And now it's your turn to win a little something!! I'm part of a seriously amazing giveaway for some Tieks!! I wish I could enter this one myself because these have been on my wish list for a while!! Which color would you choose?!

Brought to you by 



a Rafflecopter giveaway

Hope you all have a wonderful start to your week and good luck in the giveaway!!

  2. Eeek! What a great giveaway! I've wanted a pair of Tieks forever! I don't even know what color I'd choose LOL! Happy birthday to your sister! I hope she has a great day! Glad the weather held up for you at the beach. And I totally agree with you on the hanger thing! I've never heard of slim hangers but I definitely need to hunt these down now. Happy Monday!

  3. Yeah!!! I'm so excited your sister made an appearance today! You are right the two of you look like gorgeous twins! Isn't organizing your closet the most cleansing thing? I do it the same way, take everything out and then put it all back in. I find so many gems that I forgot about. Looks like a fabulous weekend and I agree can't we enter ourselves?? xoxoxo

  8. What a great weekend! Your mom sure does know how to shop for you. And, that planner? I'm dying. I actually am planning to get the same one for myself this week, but I can't decide between the black and white stripes or gold polka dots. Decisions, decisions. :) Happy Monday, girl!

  16. Your mom is so cute. She really reminds me of mine. My mom is stopping by with goodies from Marshalls from the 20% off sale today lol. My sister and I are also close and I have dark hair and she is blonde. Too funny. I am the older one though. :) I need to organize my closet desperately and part with some things. Riesling is my favorite wine. Happy Monday Extremely jealous of your planner! Oh and I love the matte black and the snake print tieks! XO

  27. when i organized my closet and asked blogland for advice, the first thing everyone said to me was "get hangars that are the same". it really does make the whole closet look pulled-together.

  48. You and your sister are so gorgeous! I want to sip vino in her sitting room but am terrified I'd spill on that lovely rug ha. I totally gave away all hangers that were not black or white (haven't made the financial commitment to wood) and now we don't have nearly enough, but I was so sick of the random colored ones. Slim hangers next ;)

    ReplyDelete
