One Lucky Lady

Sorry Ive been MIA for a few days but my best friend since I was 12 flew into town for my bday so i’ve been soaking in all my time with her and my family! She is the female version of my husband and needless to say we have endless laughs when we’re all together. If you have a bestie like that you better hang onto to them because friends like this only come around once in a lifetime!
Ava already thinks were crazy 🙂
This was definitely a bubbly filled, calories don’t count kind of weekend! 🙂
We rallied up to LA for a girls dinner at one of my favorite restaurants Cecconi’s. It was so nice to get dressed up and have a little night out with my girls!
CAn YoU TelL i Was ReAlLy ExCiteD tO Be OuT?! 
I finally got to wear my maxi dress by For Love and Lemons I posted on a couple months back.  You can find it HERE
Sticking with the bubbly theme (and taking FULL advantage of daddy day care since it was “my bday”), we also got to squeeze in a beautiful brunch at the Pelican Hill Resort.
I definitely recommend lunch on the terrace at Andrea restaurant or grabbing drinks poolside at the Coliseum grill (They have a pretty good brunch buffet on the weekends too).
A quick outfit snapshot I wore to brunch.

    1. Thank you so much for the support on that! After taking care of the babe all day i was exhausted and did not feel like dressing up or going out but SO glad i did in the end. It was much NEEDED!

  2. A very happy birthday to you!!! You look absolutely fab in red, it really suits you. BTW, what lip color are you wearing in your photos – looks perfect!

  3. Good for you mama!! Enjoy that bubbily!! You still look gorgeous even cross eyed and making funny faces…not fair;-) Don't you just love girlfriend time?? I do more than ever after having children- my girls (2nd to my hubby of course!) are my rock! Don't ever lose touch with having girls nights out once in awhile – it makes you a better mom I feel like to have another life on the outside!

    1. thank you I'm glad I'm not alone on that! After taking care of the babe all day long i was so exhausted but glad I forced myself to get dolled up and have some much needed bubbly and girl time! I was like a kid in a candy shop once I finally got out! Def need those nights every once in awhile for sure!

  4. I love that white dress…Googling the line now! 🙂 Girl Time is hard to come by when you have babies and husbands and a house, but it's so nice when you finally get it right?!

    1. thanks brittany I put a link to it below the pic to the dress if you can't find it xo And so glad you can share the joy of being a mama but being able to get out for a girls night! It is SOOOO nice when you finally get a couple hours with your ladies!

  5. Happy Birthday Gorgeous Girl, you definitely need to get out of the house so you don't feel like you are going crazy behind those 4 walls. You need that time to recharge to keep you going:) I love your outfits, especially the last one with the red blouse. Love it! What is that dark lip you have, looks perfect for fall?

    1. thankyou! A night out was DEFINITELY much needed! I love being a stay at home mom but need a break for a couple hours every once in awhile to keep my sanity! The lip color I am wearing is Spice lipstick and liner by Mac.

  6. Happy belated birthday Andee! I love posts where I can get a glimpse of your home decor. After fashion, home decor is probably my second obsession. I tune in all the time in hopes one day you'll do a home decor post! In the meantime, love the outfits and especially baby Ava posts! She's super cute!

  7. love all of the pics but umm.. i love the one of you being silly the most! people always think i'm crazy because i always talk in movie quotes and make funny faces. it's so nice you got to have lots of girl time while your bestie was in town. you look amazing in that dress but i must say you look STUNNING in red! xo

  8. Hey Andee, (:
    I'm Alexis, and I love your blog!
    Your so pretty.
    I fell in love with the white maxi dress <3
    I think I'm going to purchase it for a wedding i am going to attend since its black and white theme
    HOWEVER, I am 17 and when my mom saw this dress, she was like that's to revealing! Given that I'm also conservative also.
    I was thinking about sewing in the deep v neck line so that it's kind of more of a halter top dress, but I just wanted to ask if that would work or through off the whole dress since I don't know the actual fitting…if anything do you know any other ways I can make it less revealing?
    And lastly, can you tell me what shoes you wore with it and how you did your hair and makeup?
    I would greatly appreciate it (:
    Hope to hear from you soon 😀 -Alexis
