Weekend recap

Friday, Colleen came over and we treated ourselves to pedicures at my nail place. I ended up getting a mani too and it was nice to be pampered for a little while. It had been way too long since the last time I went. We had the best time laughing and chatting the evening away. After the nail place, we met up with Geof and went to Alfredo’s for pizza. The 3 of us had a delicious dinner and then called it a night.


Essie Turquoise & Caicos from the Resort 2010 collection for my toes & OPI Fiji Weejee Fawn for my nails. I need to pick both of these shades up. They're really pretty.

Saturday, I convinced Geof to run to King of Prussia for the last day of the Lilly warehouse sale. I didn’t expect much, but I did get my hands on a cute tote and cosmetic bag that I wanted in the Not So Crabby print. In the fall I’ll definitely go on the first day. We left the sale, headed back home and stopped for breakfast at The Coffee Station. This place is so yummy. I had the best breakfast sandwich and one chocolate chip pancake. Geof got the same thing. It’s one of those little places that gets really crowded and is a town favorite.


Goodies from the Lilly sale

Once we got home, I had a lot of work to do and then I crashed for hours on the couch, which in turn made it so I couldn’t go to bed at a reasonable hour. My schedule has been really bad the past week and I think it all caught up with me this weekend, because I’ve been feeling completely exhausted.

Sunday, I went to Colleen’s and we headed off to our friend Deidre’s bridal shower. We met up with our Krystie and Melissa and had a really nice time. The shower was at a great restaurant and Deidre seemed legitimately surprised. The bridal party and family did a great job putting everything together. Once I got back from the shower, I did some cleaning around the house and settled in for the night.

The cake was so pretty and delicious!

I painted my nails & toes OPI Jade is the New Black this weekend but I think I might need to pick up this Essie color. I think my green is too dark for summer.
