Outfits Lately & April Wrap Up

Hi friend!  Yay for Friday!  We celebrated my friend Tarah’s (also my realtor:) birthday last night with such a fun surprise party.  Ali-Shaun and friends arranged to have a private chef come to Marianna’s house and cook for us.  I was so surprised when I walked in and saw how beautifully Ali-Shaun had arranged it all.

She’s so good at that kind of thing and it was such a treat for all of us!  The weather couldn’t have been better and Marianna’s backyard was the perfect entertaining spot.  We all pitched in to cover the cost and always do one big group gift.  It’s such a fun way to get together and celebrate!

Our creative friend Jamie created the paper menus and Rhonda lent her collection of gorgeous thrifted China plates.

I’m so thankful for this group of friends!  Many of them I’ll be spending tonight with at our school’s annual Gala.  And, I found a dress that will coordinate perfectly with Brian’s navy suit!

Have you tried the Colorfulkoala leggings yet?  They’re as close as they come to Lululemon and I liked them so much I bought 5 pair at the beginning of 2021.  They have a comfortable high waist and keep you tucked in in all the right places without being constricting.
