{ TGIF!!! :) }

This week, I've been keeping my eyes peeled for some fabulous finds, and I think I've found something everyone who bakes would be better off having...everyone who loves to make cupcakes, that is! I discovered this week's find after a lovely (and wise) friend of mine had my mom and me over for a delicious dinner followed of course by YUMMY cupcakes!!! Thanks Lovely Linda!!! 

How many of you have ever been annoyed trying to get your cupcakes out of the pan to serve? The icing gets all over my fingers and being the clumsy girl I am, I've even dropped a cupcake or two (shocking I'm sure!) trying to get them out of the pan. Well, never again with this FABULOUS FIND! I present to you the Chicago Metallic Uptake Bake and Serve Cupcake Set for only $19.99... If you like it, you better get one fast. The website says they are on clearance!?

{here is the lid off of the cupcake pan lying flat on the table}

this lifts the cupcakes up so that they are easily accessible!}

This is my only find for the week.
Hope this is a fabulous find for you, too!!! 
& have a happy Easter weekend!!!

My Best Friends' Weddings!!!

     The past two weekends have been a whirlwind in my life!!! Since my two best friends planned their weddings one month apart, I have been a busy girl preparing for their bachelorette parties!!! Luckily, these two ladies helped me pick back to back weekends so that I only had to pay for one flight home (we live 2000 miles apart)! Brit's bachelorette party was in Indianapolis, Indiana on St. Patty's Day weekend. This was PERFECT because her favorite color is green! Boog's bachelorette party was at her favorite, classy establishment, 4th Street Live in Louisville, Kentucky! We had some special celebrations and events that made the day absolutely awesome!!!
     I thought for my first blog, I would include some pictures and details of these celebrations! I spent so much time researching on pinterest and planning for these parties, that I figured other people might want to see some of the fun things we did! I hope you ENJOY!!!

Brit's Bachelorette Party included:

{a little peacock nail decor in honor of her wedding theme!}

{champagne toasts to our beautiful bride!}

{a "who has the groom" game, with paper doll "hot tub" action including 
Bradley Cooper, Zak Efron, Jude Law, Paul Walker, & the famous groom!}

 {we love brit book! green apparel & St. Paddy's Day accessories for all the girls!}

{a how much do you know about each other question and answer!!!}

 {AND one fun bride!!!!}

 {there are more fun details, but what happens in Indy, stays in Indy (or something like that!) #loveher}

 Boog's Bachelorette Bash included:
