Oh hi, hi, hi.
We haven’t really had any one on one time lately, have we?
Let’s— shall we?
Ok I’ll go first: Thanksgiving was Thursday, obviously. To be honest the standout of the day was the jalapeño corn bread & my stepmom’s purple kale ( yes KALE ) and baby’s breath table— she is so crazy talented!! Look:
LIKE it was die cute. Maybe I should have her guest post a tutorial on the blog?!
Michael’s mom, Lisa, also did a beautiful job too as you can see. Every year she does a different theme & her flowers NEVER disappoint.
So anyway, we started Thanksgiving with the best intentions AKA The Skinny Confidential Bombshell Body Guide…& ended the day stuffed with cream cheese frosting pumpkin roll, corn bread, & ridiculous amounts green beans.
At least we worked out?
Just so you know: the photos are of Jordan ( Michael’s sister ), Nico ( her BF ), Gar Bear ( Michael’s dad aka Susan Senior ), & Michael.
Strapping boys, right?
Susan Senior is a real LOL. But you guys know that if you follow me on Snapchat.
We celebrated at my parent’s house later in the day where my dad served his special Southwestern turkey ( yummm ). Here’s an iPhone snip of me & my dad, love him:
After Thanksgiving we woke up super early with the dogs to shoot our Save The Dates. I’ll share them with you guys when they’re all ready…in 2089.
I kid, I kid.
You should know there’s really nothing like waking up at the butt crack of dawn, fully bloated, after stuffing your face with carbs, to shoot ‘candid’, laughing casually-ish photos in a see-through dress ( LONG STORY ).
Let me tell you, BARRELS of fucking fun. BARRELS.
After the shoot I did a girl’s spa day which is exactly what the doctor ordered because BLOOD ORANGE MIMOSAS, BLOWOUTS, & DEEP TISSUE MASSAGES?
Yes please, thanks.
The weekend was mellow. Our friend, Westin, came into town & we took him to our all-time favorite San Diego restaurant: Cowboy Star.
If you’re ever in the area, I highly recommend the charming, old school restaurant. They have the best grass-fed steaks & use only the top of the line ingredients for cocktails. It’s DELICIOUS.
Sunday was spent reading & cleaning & working— rinse & repeat. I swear I have laundry coming out of my ass every Sunday. Is anyone else like this? & by the way, I promise I’m going to do a full on book club post because I’ve been reading so much lately. I can’t stop. Stay tuned because it’s a long, fun list!
Bottom line: this last week has been madness but regardless I’m really ready to buckle down & do some holiday shopping. I’ll be posting my favorite gift ideas all month.
In other news, I’m sharing two TSC Snapchat Series a week where I’ll be sharing mini tutorials of smoothies, fridge hauls, & cute/quick ideas, so be sure to follow ‘laurynevarts’ if you want to see!
Ok, your turn: tell me about your holiday weekend? What’d you cook? Who’d you see? What’d you wear?
From my bed, under 183737 covers because I’m freezing my ass off in 55 degree weather like a pussy willow. & drinking sparkling water of course, lauryn x
