Weekend Wonders

Whew...I am exhausted!
I got in at midnight last night after an incredible weekend in Houston, Texas. My "girls weekend" was actually a SURPRISE visit to my beautiful friend Jill's house to throw her a SURPRISE Baby Shower. Jill is pregnant with twins and is on modified bed rest. Since she is a Cali girl at heart and she cannot fly out to see us we went to her. It was worth every single penny to see the look on her face when we showed up on her doorstep! The shower was so elegant and beautiful. My friend Lauren is an amazing party planner and had such an incredible vision for the shower. We got to spend so much quality time with Jill and her hubby. We ate Texas BBQ and we HAD to have Tex Mex Queso. I needed that time with my girlfriend's and the getaway couldn't have been better timed after my crazy week.

Here are some snapshots from the weekend!
 L. Hello Houston! Greeted by HUMID weather :)
R. Obsessed, I mean OBSESSED, with my mani... and Starbucks+Travel=Must Have
Wearing OPI 'Pink Friday' and Essie Luxeffects aling with Jewlemint rings

 L. My jewels for the baby shower: Kendra Scott 'Sasha' ring, World Market braided bangle, Kendra Scott 'Leanne' bangles and Glitter and Gloss 'Coco' Bangle.
R. Apparently neon flip flops were Baby Shower attire. I am wearing Gap leather flip flops in coral (I have the tattoo).

 The ladies with Jill...pregnant with TWINS!!! Doesn't she look amazing??

This is how we showed up on her doorstep...armed with decorations!

  A pic of the set up and the BEST cookies ever!!

 Brunch at HUdson and Hubble Market and Deli (the restaurant is a separate place). Pretty much the COOLEST and fanciest grocery store.

 What is a good girls weekend without some adult beverages? Mimosas at Brunch and my first Coronarita with Queso. Yummmmmm!!!!

 Jill's neighborhood has a mini water park and lazy river in it. Yup! Heaven. We took full advantage.
I am wearing the L*Space 'Dolly' bandeau top
 
 Drinking my Coronarita (in a white Mossimo V Neck. told you I am obsessed!)

 The cutest couple and preggo saying Good Bye! :(

I hope that you all had an incredible weekend as well!
I have one more weekend away (beach camping) and a very busy work week ahead of me!
I will be having two meal supplement shakes a day and hitting the gym HARD to recover from this weekend! I have to be in a bikini all weekend PLUS I head to Mexico in 4 weeks. EEK!!!

Happy Monday!

    1. It was SO fun!

      I buy the Lean 1 meal replacement shakes from Amazon. My trainer recommended them and they are really good. I wish that I had a great shake I could make on my own but I never have the time. This one I just scoop into water and that is it!
