How was your weekend?
We were so busy, this weekend was completely packed with activities. Some of my favorite moments were….
On Saturday night, Beth of Beth Helmstetter Events invited us to her housewarming party – and of course, it was beautiful. No one knows how to throw a party quite like an event planner! She transformed her backyard into an intimate Mexican themed fiesta, complete with twinkle lights. She also had a vendor making street tacos, and another making churros…and to top it off, a tequila tasting bar and a DJ. Patrick and I rarely go out after Olive goes to sleep, so this was a really special way to spend a rare summer evening out.
On Sunday, we had a couple of our friends over for a small backyard BBQ. I’ve known Bea for almost a decade now, and we’ve seen each other through a lot – being single, being engaged, being married – being pregnant and also through the shock of being first time moms. I am so thankful that we’re still so close, and that our daughters are becoming fast friends, as well. We brought out the inflatable pool since it was boiling hot this weekend in LA – and the girls were beyond happy, and spent a good few hours playing with each other in the water while the adults chatted.
