Weekend Recap (on Tuesday)

So another joint birthday weekend was a success and I feel like I am still in recovery mode. Heather stayed through Monday morning so she could be there on my actual birthday AND work closed due to inclement weather! (What a great birthday present right?) We also had a faaabulous Oscar party which I will of course recap my best dressed list shortly. I mainly spent the day packing and I am feeling a bit overwhelmed to say the least! I can't believe that, if every goes smoothly, we will be closing on the new house in 3 days! Anyway I feel so blessed at this point in my life with my family, friends, husband, job and potential new home so despite the feelings of being overwhelmed, I am secretly bursting inside with excitement! I hope everyone had a great weekend and is staying warm where ever you are- Spring, let's get a move on please!

 
Oh guess what? It's Tuesday tea as well with our hosts: Jenni, Khala, Samantha & ReneƩ
Thanks Loves!



CHEERS!


Ok now I have to say that I LOVED the Oscars this year and if you know me you know I love awards season. I thought most of the awards were very well-deserved and it was a nice mix from the Golden Globes last month. (Leo won the Golden for best actor so when he missed this one I didn't cry too terribly much- and besides, Matthew's speech was ON POINT ya'll. No one seems to thank God as much and I loved that he made that the center of his speech! If you missed it, J-Leto had a great speech too!)

DRUMROLL PLEASE: BEST DRESSED OF THE NIGHT GOES TO:

1. Kate Hudson (oh em gee ya'll) in Versace


Kate even stunned at the after party!


#2 for best dressed goes to Lupita Nyong'o in Prada (ya'll KNOW I LOVE blue- go girl!)


And #3 I'm giving to Sandy's classic Alexander McQueen number



And for the men I'm going with..... Drumroll please:

#1. Leonardo DiCaprio (Um Duh- was there any other question for me ya'll?)


And number 2: I really liked Mr. Spacy! This blue on black trend (that we saw a lot of..) was never my favorite but I think he really pulled it off!


So- what did ya'll pick? Anyone I missed that REALLY needs a shoutout?

    1. I did love it but not the faint see-through straps (the dress looked thick enough/abstract enough that it may have stayed up without them haha) Good pick though!
