Whale of a Week

Is it already Monday?! This past week and weekend flew by in a blurrr. Early last week, the Everly girls asked me to coordinate their oldest sister’s baby shower (this past Saturday) so it was a week of late nights, crazed DIY-ing, and multiple Joanns/Michaels/Target/Party City runs. I planned the whole thing from start to finish in four days. FOUR days! I hope it’s a record I will never have to beat. It felt extra crazy because I got sick and felt progressively worse throughout the week. Eeeep.

Hopefully I’ll post some detail shots (from a reeeeal camera) soon, but for now, here’s a picture of the dessert table. 🙂 It was whale/ocean-themed so we stuck with shades of mint and light blue, and of course, cute whale motifs.

After Saturday morning’s shower, I freelanced with the Zoie Events team for an event at the El Rey Theater. Kind of random but it was a surprise 75th bar mitzvah-themed birthday extravaganza. I was slated to work from 3pm-1am, but I must have sneezed one too many times, because halfway through, I got sent home sick. :X Ack. I felt bad but also equally thankful…!

Outside the El Rey. The family put a lot of love into this huge event– hopefully the guest of honor was truly surprised!

Now that I have the full-blown flu, I’m really looking forward to a (hopefully) chill week of recovery. Have a great week!
