Happy Monday everybody! Did you have a good weekend? I did!
So my official birthday is tomorrow, but my husband planned a surprise birthday party for me Saturday night and it was just that–a complete surprise! We had gone out to dinner that night with a friend and her husband and I was expecting the four of us to go back to our house and play some games, but when I stepped in the house and turned the lights on to a living room full of my friends and family it was such a shock! Apparently, Jeremiah had been planning this for the past month and a half and he did such a good job keeping it a secret that I hadn’t caught on at all. Everybody knew about this party except for me, even the waiter at the restaurant we had had dinner at that evening knew! Too funny :)
Anyway, on to my favorite BurdaStyle projects from last week. These are garments that I particularly like and would love to wear myself. I usually just “favorite” them on BurdaStyle, but a couple weeks ago I decided to make it a regular thing to feature them on my blog so I could share the inspiration and applaud the talent of the people who made them!
