Last weekend was one of those special weekends full of love, fun and friends. On Friday night I attended the Tupelo Honey preview party where I ran into so many friends I don’t see often. After dinner I went to a screening of an amazing documentary that deserves its own post. I left with my heart open and couldn’t stop thinking about the film.
This weekend also marked my first classes teaching at Om Yoga. I recently picked up two new classes there – Fridays at noon ($7 karma class!) and Saturdays at 9:30 a.m. I am focusing more on teaching and yoga so I want to branch out and start teaching at some new studios. Everyone was so welcoming and the studio has an amazing energy. I am so grateful for the opportunity to teach there!
I left Om and got ready for a baby shower. One of my yoga friends is pregnant with a baby girl and is due in February. I’m so proud to share that she is still rocking it in yoga and getting into all kinds of poses with that belly. I love seeing my friends practice through their pregnancies. I think it must be such a great way to be in tune with your body and your baby.
There was a delicious dessert spread at the shower. Mini pecan pies…yes, yes, yes.
After the shower it was a mad dash to the mall to pick up some gifts and then home to prepare for a party I was hosting that night for a birthday. I got a little crazy with Christmas in the living room but I love it! So cozy. The best thing about entertaining during the holidays is having the house already decorated and pretty.
15 minutes before the party started I was still pulling last minute things together but I did a quick clothing change and make up reapplication and was ready to go when the guests started to arrive.
Before I knew it, I had a full house! I served a spread of various appetizers, including Katie’s AMAZING holiday guacamole. You must go and check this recipe out on her blog.
Wine and cupcakes…do you really need more to have a great party?
The cupcakes were eggnog with eggnog cream cheese and were so good and so eggnoggy. I will definitely bake these again!
The party moved outside around the fire pit as I passed out cupcakes. They went quickly!
And wrapping it up with a girls group shot. Such a fun night and great weekend overall. Happy. 🙂
