FoF: fashion shows and a GIVEAWAY!

Friday, September 18, 2015

I finished my first week of inpatient internal medicine and it was intense! Long hours and sick patients. I have to work Saturday snd Sunday so I have today off (praise!). Here are my 5 from this week:

Last night my mom, my sisters and I went to dinner and a fashion show at Bevello. It was so much fun to have a girls night with drinks and yummy food then lots of shopping. I scored a new blanket scarf, two new tops, and a pea coat! And yes, my husband did my hair.

As I mentioned in a post last week, our cousins just had a new baby. I picked up this adorable Kate Spade card to go along with their present. Because honestly, paper products are my jam and this was too cute to pass up.

You guys HAVE to read this article titled "Out of the Ashes" that was written about my cousin, Inez. She was the Beverage Director on the 107th floor of the North Tower in the World Trade Center. On September 11, 2011 she happened to be home in NC for her sister's wedding. She lost 79 of her co-workers that day. Now she is the owner of On The Square, the most amazing restaurant in Tarboro, NC where I had my bridesmaid's luncheon. Please, take time to read this article. It will give you chills!

One of my friends' older sisters recently started a calligraphy business called "It Is Written" and I won a giveaway on her instagram! This has always been one of my very favorite verses. It would be beautiful framed in a nursery and it would also make a great gift. I think I will save it for the former ;) Be sure to check out her instagram @itiswrittencalligraphy and show her some love!

In case you missed it, check out my post from yesterday about Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month. And be sure to enter the giveaway for this gorgeous headband from Headbands of Hope!



Linking up with April and Amanda

  14. I love that your husband does your hair! That will come in handy if y'all have a daughter/daughters. I can't wait to see the pieces you got from bevello. I can always find something I "need" in there. Have a great weekend!

  16. That's awesome that your husband does your hair and has mastered the sock bun! It's hard to style the back of your head where you can't see.

  17. I want to repeat what Amanda said above! Seriously, extra points for your husband! And yep, sleeveless pics are a requirement ;) I have yet to try a sock bun and need to try it because the messy bun look is not looking good these days! Too close to the truth! I hope you don't have too many patients this weekend! And that card is too cute as well!
