Party, party!

This weekend was filled with parties with some of my oldest friends. No matter how much life changes, it's great to have a core group of people you can get together with and feel like no time has passed.

Saturday was a first birthday party for my sorority sister's daughter. She had the most adorable Candyland theme with incredible decorations. Check it out, all of these characters she made by tracing onto cardboard, cutting out, and painting!

       

Sunday was a bridal shower for a friend I've known since elementary school. Again, adorable decorations! Her theme was Tiffany's and every little detail was perfection.

     

Oh and on top of quality time with amazing friends, my Saints won! But did you see the end of the game though? It doesn't get more exciting than that. 

After that perfect weekend not even a Monday can dampen my mood. Here's to a great week ahead!

Your weekend sounds gorgeous - nothing like time spent with old, forever friends!

Wow! They could seriously make money making Candy Land decorations. Gone are the plastic table-cloths and Barbie themed paper decorations, we live in a DIY pinterest era. I love when my weekends are filled with parties. Happy Monday!

I love the Tiffany's theme! I don't think I've ever been to a shower that "put together." Most of the ones I've been to were before the Pinterest hey-day!

Ooooh I love the Tiffany's theme! And the fact that you've been friends with her since elementary school. All the close friends I have in my circle are the ones I made in college. I think it's a special thing to still be friends since you were little kids :)
