Weekend Recap

On Thursday and Friday I got to hang out with two of my favorite girlfriends Cassie (Hi Sugarplum) and Courtney (A Thoughtful Place).  We are long past referring to each other as "mybloggerfriend" and now are simply, friends.  Good ones.  The kind that go shopping at West Elm and end up sitting on one of their couches chatting for way too long, then finally remember to look around. :) This was such a treat because we are all in different cities and it just so happened that Court's husband had to come to Cassie's town for work, so we all decided to meet up.

It was totally surreal to be standing in Cassie's gorgeous home after seeing it in pictures for so long.    I love what she's done with it and am excited to see how the future projects she's planning turn out- especially in the dining room.  

Getting to be in each other's company for two days was awesome.   These women mean so much to me and have been such a support and encouragement.  They are the real deal.

Back in Houston, we went to a "dress up" Halloween block party that was so fun.  Our friends hosted their 3rd annual party, complete with bounce houses, hay rides, fire trucks, a movie projected onto the garage with blankets, pillows, and bean bag chairs for the kids to cozy up with.  The food was awesome (with proceeds going to charity) and the drinks were delicious- especially the chocolate vodka:)  

Aren't our friends cute?!

I can't remember the last time I wore a costume!  Unfortunately, James didn't want to wear his costume, so no pics to share- crossing my fingers for Halloween! :) 

Are YOU dressing up this year?!  If so, as what?
