one-four // Oy vey! I'm not one to ever wish away weekends (never ever), but I'm kind of happy to see this day. For the past few weeks, I've had a surprise party planned for Billy and his sister with both of our families (his parents, my parents, his brother, his cousins!) and let's just say I'm not that great at keeping surprises. It was so hard to keep from him, especially since he asked me a minimum of 939 times in a matter of a week what our plans were.
Billy's family lives in Cleveland, so they made the two hour drive Saturday morning and went straight to my parents house and hid in their basement for when we arrived. I told Billy we were going over to have a belated birthday lunch with my parents, and I truly believe he had no idea all his family would be there. In fact, he told me afterwards he thought I was hiding a bike in the basement (ha he has been wanting a certain mountain bike for years!) He was so happy to have his family here. We haven't seen them in a while, and he was just giddy the whole day.
We celebrated at my parents for a couple hours with appetizers and a cake made by my stepmom, went to the casino for a bit (most of Billy's cousins walked away hundreds of dollars richer so that was nice ha), and then I had made dinner reservations at BJ's Brewhouse with everyone. Even though Billy's family only lives two hours away, it was SO nice to be able to have my family and his family hang out all together for their birthday.
Earlier in the week, I made these awesome pretzel treats, had cute labels made, and put them in treat bags to pass out to everyone, and of course I forgot about them. I hid them at our house so Billy wouldn't find them, then after everyone left I realized I completely forgot about them. Let's just say my coworkers came into plenty of treats this morning...
five // the cake my stepmom made for Billy and his sister :)
six // spring mani from last week, the color is Essie's 'Chastity' and I can finally say for the first time that I'm in love with a pink nail polish. I'm not normally a pink person, but I love this color so much (it has more purples tones than this picture shows.)
seven // the softest stripe infinity scarf in the world. handmade by jacqueline! I've talked about my love for her shop before, but she just added new items for spring and since you guys loved the items from before, I had to share again! *get 15% off your order with code: KATIE15!
I also got this adorable coral headband...
eight // the infamous treat bags I put together and forgot to pass out. Katie fail.
How was your weekend?! It is in the 60's here today and tomorrow so I'm one happy girl. I can't wait to run outside for the first time this year tonight! Stay tuned for a fun post later tonight...
