Morning y’all & happy Friday! I am so excited for a long weekend and Monday off- so ready for an extra day of relaxation! We just found out at work yesterday that we will be instituting “Summer Hours” (they are a big thing up north but not so much here in the perpetual summer) and our first week of it is this week! So basically it’s going to be the very best weekend! There is so much to look forward to over the next four days that I thought it would be fun to round up the five things I’m most excited about this weekend!
ONE: WEDDING BELLS!
Y’all it has been FOREVER since I’ve been to a wedding (most of my friends got married pretty soon after college) but this weekend I’ve got one on the calendar! Rob is actually the best man in the wedding and had RSVP’s before we even met! When he reached out to the bride about me, she was sweet enough to invite me to all the festivities over the next two days! Cannot wait to celebrate with my sweet man and his wonderful friends!
TWO: SHOPPING EVENT WITH KENDRA SCOTT
Kendra Scott is one of my favorite jewelry brands so I was thrilled when my local store reached out and asked if I would be interested in helping to launch their summer collection this Saturday! Any chance to meet my friends & readers, shop, and sip cocktails? I’m there! If you’re local and interested in attending you can RSVP at the link below:
PS- Did I mention that all attendees receive an exclusive 15% discount?? Yippee!!
THREE: MEETING THE BEST FRIENDS
After a Friday/Saturday of meeting Rob’s best friends then it will be his turn to meet mine! 🙂 My bestie, Asha & her hubby Jake, are coming into town Sunday after church and we will be meeting up with my other best gal Emily & her hubby Joel for a triple date night! (Fun Fact: Emily & Joel helped to set us up!) These women are so influential in my life and I am so excited for Rob to meet and spend time with some of my favorite people!
FOUR: PATRICK BRETT FOUNDATION BIRTHDAY PARTY
As y’all might remember, I’m President of a wonderful local non-profit called The Patrick Brett Foundation. (Our mission is to give “second chance” scholarships to students pursuing college degrees!) Every Memorial Day we have a Birthday Party to celebrate Patrick (the amazing young man who inspired our foundation) as a fun fundraiser for our organization. We will be holding the event at a local craft brewery and it’s always such a great time! I can’t wait to kick off the year and celebrate Memorial Day with such a wonderful organization!
I had the best time last night meeting with my friend, Ashley, and learning about Beauty Counter! I’ve tried a few samples over the past few months and loved the products but wasn’t ready to make the switch yet! As I am learning so much more about the products that I use on my skin (and trying to protect it since entering my 30’s!) it was amazing to learn from Ashley and get so much education about WHY Beauty Counter is such a game changer! I’ll be starting to use my new products this weekend and can’t wait to share more about my safer skincare journey and what I learn along the way!
