goodness! the days are just flying by.

this weekend was my time with the girls!

and it was lovely. i treated myself with a stay at this place. and it was totally worth it.


noon: the dress fitting.

afterward, a small group at salut for a late lunch.

six: the girls at beaujo's.

delightful! e did an amazing job with the decor, the champagne, and the favors. how fun! i love the little touches - i feel like they completely make the event!

kudos, my dear, kudos.

dinner was lovely; then out to king's, and closed down nye's. the girls sang chapel of love and it was ador-able. we sang and sang. i tried to take some dude's shirt off because i thought he wasn't straight and he was from california. i tried to convince him he was my bachelorette present from the girls. no-go. wink!

it was truly an unforgettable night for me. i feel lucky to have such wonderful, gorgeous friends.

mwah. you know who you are.

i must share this with you.

i have been looking for foo dogs for at least one and a half years now.

at first, i wanted white. i knew i didn't want the turquoise blue that everyone else had. i found red/orange ones on cb2 that i adored, but couldn't fit in our decor.

but i thought i would have to settle for them anyway. i liked them, i just didn't want to hop on the bandwagon.

and then...just a couple of weeks ago, i didn't have to.

they look pale yellow, but they're not. they are a fabulous primary yellow. perfect height.

and all for $24.99. thanks to target. somebody stop me!

i know you're sick of the wedding gabber, but i thought of a FUN idea yesterday when i was perusing through etsy (it has been an absolute lifesaver).

here's the situation. our resort events manager likes to charge us. a lot. for everything. so when she quoted $50 - $150 per tablecloth (i need 12 - 14), i was all, uh-uh (waving finger back and forth), i don't think so.

i dream of black and white striped tablecloths.

but apparently no one else does.

so, i went on etsy. i am going to get plain white tablecloths (14 for $100 on ebay, thank you very much), and get table runners in these patterns:


she also tried to charge me $180 per centerpiece, when all i really want are peonies in a black square vase.

so, i bought 14 matte black ceramic square vases for $117 (including shipping!) and will be shipping them down.

anyway, here's the fun idea:

getting these for fun photos! :)

last week i went to sfo for a quick awards ceremony.

who knew they gave out awards for video games? (answer: darling, they give out awards for everything)

o. blink blink. i like it!

two dirty martinis at the sir francis drake boutique hotel.

um. i love it!

i also really like huge chandeliers (that's what she said).
