If You're Going To San Francisco...

Headed to San Fran for the weekend, yay! Be back Sunday with an update, until then I leave you with these...

Some gorgeous sweet peas and roses from my Mom's garden to brighten up my room.

The Cynthia Vincent for Target wedges- freaking amazing in person! They go with pretty much everything, I would definitely suggest getting a pair if you can find them.

My Sister Is Better Than Martha...

My sister is quite possibly the best party planner I know- she worked on my niece's and nephew's 4th birthday for months and it turned out perfectly!

The centerpieces for the cheerleading/sports party.

Megaphone station for the girls.

Luke's cake.

Charlotte's cake.

The "concession" stand of goodies.

Baseball cupcakes.

Pom-pom cupcakes.

Even the water bottles were personalized!

Party favors for the girls and boys (I might have snuck one for myself...).

How I Spent My... Thursday

I feel like these "How I Spent My..." posts are going to become a staple on the blog- love taking random pics throughout the day.

Finally got around to watching Food Inc. which made me oh so glad that I don't eat any sort of meat anymore!

Bought the ingredients to make Magnolia Bakery's Banana Pudding after seeing it on CupcakesandCashmere's blog this week.

Got package 1 of 2 from the Saks Friends and Family Sale. Just got some basics and love them all except for the T by Alexander Wang tank which will be returned- such a weird fit!

Picked up some new reading material (I randomly picked the book off of the bestseller shelf at Barnes & Noble).

Finally took my Cynthia Vincent for Target sandals out of the box- can't wait to get the wedge version in the mail this week after seeing them on Amber's blog!

Lit my favorite candle- seriously so yummy!

Other noteworthy events included an hour of spin class but didn't really know how to get a discreet shot of that..

TGIF! Excited to have some Mexican food and listen to some live music with the girlies tonight.

How I Spent My... Sunday

Enjoyed roses from my Mom's garden.

Laid out with some good reading material.

Found a spot in my room for a lovely orchid plant.

Started and finished this book- really enjoyed it.

Best Dressed: 2010 Coachella

"Be sure to wear a flower in your hair."

Kate Bosworth takes the above song lyric literally and it pays off. Aviators and a Topshop croquet frock were rocked the day before with cowboy booties.

Jean shorts and sandals proved to be a comfy trend among beauties Kristin Cavallari and Rachel Bilson.

Alessandra Ambrosio and Camilla Belle prove that boots can be transitioned easily to spring and summer when paired with the right outfit.

I really wish that I could have made it out to Coachella this year- I would have loved to seen Jay-Z, Passion Pit, Vampire Weekend, MGMT, Phoenix and Florence and the Machine!

Get Ready...Sale Time

Saks Friends and Family sale start this Tuesday, April 20th. Simply use code "Friend4" at checkout. Enjoy!
