Girlie weekend!

Steph, Nikki, Alicia and I checked into a hotel Saturday night with plans of cocktails, shopping, and a wonderful grown-up dinner. All went well until poor Alicia sliced open the tip of her finger on my picnic knife. So off to the ER she went. Once everyone was back in the room, we sat up until well past 1am visiting, telling stories, and cracking each other up. Injuries aside, it was a perfect little getaway.
The next day we hit Oakbrook Mall and I found these wonderful new goodies:

Anthropologie:
The Allamanda Necklace

Sephora: Sugar Lemon perfume by Fresh

I think it’s the ideal scent for the warm summer days I hope will get here soon. (Dave says it smells like Sprite.)

Sephora: Sugar Rosè SPF 15 lip tint by Fresh

It adds the most perfect swipe of sheer, natural rose color to your lips.

Eco-friendly watch by Sprout

The strap is made from organic cotton, the bezel from corn-based resin, the face is bamboo and the battery is mercury-free. Somewhere a polar bear just let out a sigh of relief.

Land of Nod (It’s not just for kids!)

Birds of a Feather Hang Together in orange.

She looks so happy hanging in my office window.


Pottery Barn Kids Airplane Mobile

Baby Will can’t be the great-grandson of one of our nation’s first wave of aviators, the grandson of a pilot and the nephew of an aerospace engineer and NOT have some aviation inspiration over his crib! That just wouldn’t be right.

So I picked up those goodies along with a few little things for the kids and wrapped things up after a lovely lunch with the ladies. I can’t wait to do it again soon.

Next time we bring a bin of pre-sliced limes.
