Scenes from the long weekend.

Oh, what a fun weekend! On Saturday morning I hosted a Stella & Dot Brunch and Bling trunk show with my friend Jen. I had such a wonderful time catching up with girlfriends as we browsed and ordered accessories. I also got to meet two blogger friends in person for the first time; thank you so much Cristina and Melissa for coming! If you would like to purchase any Stella & Dot accessories, either for yourself or for holiday gifts, you can use this link to shop. There are so many adorable options to choose from! I am treating myself to the Phoenix pendant necklace and these paradise stud earrings.

After a quick trip to Manhattan Saturday afternoon for black booties, Brian, Emily, and I stayed in that evening and watched movies. On Sunday we had our first family portrait session in Central Park with our friend Michael. Despite the unpredicted rain and high wind, we had a fabulous time and love how our photos turned out! I will be sharing some of our favorite images soon.

Monday I spent most of my day off in pajamas curled up in bed with my computer and Pretty Little Liars on Netflix. Do any of you watch this very dramatic teen show? I am eight episodes in and kind of hooked... no surprise based on my love of Gossip Girl.
Also, thank you to those who serve and have served our country. I appreciate your commitment and am grateful for your courage and selflessness. I hope you had a wonderful Veterans Day.


  1. Pretty Little Liars will totally hook you. It's so dramatic and you just want to know what's going to happen next!!

  2. I absolutely LOVE PLL! It just gets even more addicting. I can't wait till it's back on in January! :)

  3. Thank you so much for the invitation! I had a wonderful time and I'm looking forward to receiving my goodies. Glad the rest of your weekend was great!

    I've never seen PLL, but I love two other teen shows of ridiculous: Teen Wolf and Dance Academy!

    The Rambling Fangirl

  4. Thank you so much for hosting the party! I had a great time!

    I can't wait to see images from your photo shoot!

  5. Small town WI girl living the big city life vicariously through you...I love your blog! NYC is definitely on my must see list!

    Random question...what colors are on your nails? I love the combo, so fall like and pretty :)

    1. Hey! Thanks so much for following along and leaving a comment. It is so nice to hear you enjoy my little slice of NYC on my blog :) If you are ever planning a trip to the Big Apple, don't hesitate to email if you need suggestions for sights or restaurants!

      Both nail polishes are OPI. The dark polish is We'll Always Have Paris and the gold/burgundy glitter polish is Warm and Fozzie (from the Muppets collection a few years ago). I am liking the colors this week as well and might repeat this manicure next week, too!

    2. Thank you so much! I'm a sucker for burgandies and glitter :D

      My husband and I are thinking about a spring trip, so I will definitely be hitting you up for suggestions! Thanks again!
