Catchin Up!

It has been less than three weeks and here is my THIRD Birchbox review as promised. I'm pretty proud of the fact that I've kept up with it (with sporadic timing, yes, but I've kept up nonetheless haha).

This is the review of the September Birchbox which means, I am almost officially all caught up! I received my October box just last week so once I do that one I will be up-to-date.
 
On another note this last weekend was a busy one.
My boyfriends dad recently had, what I understand to be a couple of minor heart and had to get two stints put in, so we drove down to Pala Casino (his destination of choice) to spend the evening hanging out. It was actually a lot of fun and I got a chance to know him a little better AND he gave us a free room that they got!
Then Saturday was my moms birthday. We spent the day spoiling her. I made her favorite, yellow cake with chocolate frosting. A family birthday tradition.
And, of course, I love any excuse to use all the cute wrapping paper that I have :)
 Then Sunday was my beautiful friend Tina's bridal shower. I've known Tina since I was probably 18. We used to work together at the hell hole that is best known as Red Robin. It's funny because I'm sure anyone who has worked in the restaurant industry would agree, it is both the best and worst times EVER. The people that you have to deal with on a daily basis are awful, BUT the people that you work WITH... are some of the best friends you'll ever have. I'm still friends with so many of the people that I spent my Red Robin years with. I even live with one of them! (Stefana) But anyways... back to the shower.My friend (and Tina's Maid of Honor AND yet another fellow Red Robin-er) Wilma (of Lovely Jubilee) truly outdid herself. Everything was gorgeous from the invitations, to the linens to the icing on the cake (literally, it was pink and gold! so cute!) It was a lovely day with lovely people.
 Tina is going to make the most gorgeous bride.
 
 
All in all it was a busy busy weekend but a lot of fun.
 
Stay tuned for my October Birchbox review!
 
xoxo, shea
