Pumpkin Patch

Aaron and I visited the pumpkin patch and carnival on First and Nees to check out the goodies. All of the pumpkins are perfect! We are now ready to do some carving. And I want to go back at night for some "fair food" and maybe a ride or two! Who wants to join us?

Aaron's favorite, kettle corn

Happy 25th Birthday Gina!

On Saturday night we celebrated Gina's 25th Birthday at her house with the most delicious meal I have eaten in years. Her mom cooked gourmet dishes, therefore we ate non-stop all night. I loved every minute with all my childhood girlfriends. Majority of them have moved up north so it was wonderful to soak up time with them. Love. these. girls

Baby Finley

I had the pleasure of joining in the celebration of Baby Finley on the way. The girls planned a beautiful luncheon at Bella Pasta, that was Coco Chanel inspired. Every detail was adorable! It was so fun showering Ingrid with gifts and watching her glow with all of her favorite women gathered around her. Can't wait for Baby Finley to arrive!

Our Hollywood Premier

A few weeks ago three girlfriends and I got to go to the taping of Dancing with the Stars! Thanks to my sweet friend Christina who invited us and is a pro audience member. We woke up early drove from Fresno to the CBS Studios and arrived by 11:00 to be the first in line with our tickets. We parked at The Grove (saw Mario Lopez taping for Extra), got lunch, and spent the afternoon chatting away, waiting to be let in. We were ready to go in our heels and dresses, prepared to schmooze our way to the best seats. We snuck our camera's in, and had our star shades on ready to see some celebrities. When we finally got inside they paused us at the door and then proceeded to seat us RIGHT BEHIND THE JUDGES! It was such a blast! We had front row seats, were on the camera all night, and got to chat with the judges on commercial breaks. The dancing was amazing, and the building was filled with excitement. We spotted tons of celebrities including Kris and Bruce Jenner, Courtney Cox, Billy Baldwin, former Bachelor contestants, and of course all the stars dancing. It was definitely a trip to remember. I can't wait to go again!

Stella & Dot {Launch Party}

A couple of Sunday's ago I launched my new Stella & Dot Jewelry business at my house and my dearest girlfriends and family supported me on my big day. Thank you so much to each of you for pushing me to try something new and encouraging my new adventure! A special thanks to my sponsor Lisa Lakovich who held my hand along the way and brought all of her beautiful jewels to my house to show. Stella & Dot is a boutique-style jewelry and accessory line that is available through in home trunk shows. The New York designed pieces are being flaunted by many celebrities, and everybody is loving the line. I'm so excited to be a new stylist and have some fun throwing trunk shows! Here's a preview of the beautiful jewelry and the fun afternoon we had.
