Friday Faves, Coffee Date, & InstaFriday

If we were to sit and have coffee today, I'd tell you that this has been a busy week.

Last Saturday, my sister-in-law, Brianna, got married. The wedding was beautiful and the food, primarily made by my mother-in-law and her family, was delicious. The cake was gone in no time and was heavenly. Brianna was a beautiful bride and Chad (her new hubby) is a wonderful fit for her and our family.

Their wedding helped me realize that I'm not perfect or in control of really anything. If it weren't for Jesus, I'd be nothing. I'm so grateful for the people in my life that love me and stick around as I learn to become more like Jesus. 

Instagramed pictures from the wedding: 

Like my mani/pedi? Tonya (PC's wife) came to the rescue and painted them for me! P.S. Big, curly hair is an all-time favorite.

The Hubster & Me

Anthony & Donna (his mom, my mother-in-law)

Scott (my father-in-law) & Me

If we had coffee, I'd tell you that Scott & Donna are the most wonderful in-laws I could have ever asked for. They are my faves.

The Bridesmaids: Elise, Me, Chelsea, & Kourtney

I'd also tell you that I have a really thoughtful and incredibly sweet Hubster. Whenever we grocery shop together, he always asks me if I want flowers. This time, accompanied by our cousin, Brittany, I said yes. She helped him pick out a beautiful bouquet. 

When I Instagrammed the picture of the flowers, I said "I love pretty things." Anthony thinks cards are a waste of money. However, he replied to the flower picture and said, "I love pretty things too. That's why I picked you." Pretty much the best online "card" I could get. 

As we drank our coffee, I'd probably be wearing a striped shirt or pants. I'd say I might be needing a stripe intervention. We went to the mall on Tuesday and I bought 4 striped items. Add that to the growing collection and I think I now have 75% striped clothes. 

My coworker and I have become good friends. Her nickname is Sissy (real name is Stacey) and mine is Missy. Sissy gave me the prettiest top and earrings for my birthday. They were the only non-striped outfit I wore all week. 

In fact, I wore them to the SacTweetup. Where I met Donelle in person.

Donelle is such a fun lady and I'm looking forward to getting to know her better. She also started a really cool blog, Seen In Sacramento, where she talks about how awesome our town/city is.

One of my favorite things things about working downtown is the horse police. They are awesome, especially when they cross the street like pedestrians do!

Please don't stage a stripe intervention on me, I have a few more striped outfits I have my eye on!

What have you been up to this week? 

Linking up with Rachel, Alissa, and Jeanett!
