Sorry I have been so late to posting this week!  I have had a crazy one (in a good way)!  Below are a few highlights….


[I came from from the bachelorette party to these hand picked pretties]


[And we began construction on our outdoor patio!  We never really used the patio that was there because it was so uneven and not that big.  We are hoping to spend some fall nights out there now!  After pictures to come :)]


[And our poppy and bee canvas is hanging at our favorite spot – Sleepy Bee in Oakley!]


[Starting to look better!]


[And Friday with the girls mean – Skyline time!]


[And little Miss Bea got her haircut before school starts!]


[I am SO excited to say that Bea is officially over her egg allergy!  No Epi pen needed and she can enjoy all things with egg!  We are thrilled!]


[Newest addition – the bounce house!]


[And Sunday morning I took Bea to the Hyde Park Farmer’s Market while Poppy napped.  I always love going and Bea especially LOVES the music :)]





You guys!   I had THE best weekend celebrating my best gal – Miss Teddy!  If you follow me on Instagram (@hillarykweidner) you may have gotten the hint that we celebrated her bachelorette party in Key West, Florida this past weekend.

It was so fun!

First of all, Teddy has been one of my best friends since the 1st grade.  We went to grade school, high school, and college together AND we lived together in Chicago.  We have been friends for over 25 years and have been through so much together.  A friend like her comes once in  a lifetime so I was beyond honored when she asked me to be her Maid of Honor.

So, planning the bachelorette party was a breeze with the help of so many friends and everyone was excited to spend the weekend together 🙂

We rented an adorable pink house just a block away from Duval street (the main street in Key West).  It was perfect and had the best backyard with a little pool – plenty of hanging space, bedrooms and bathrooms.  We had 15 girls total so we needed something that would give us enough space and it did!

Find the house we stayed in HERE.

Teddy moved back from Chicago where she worked (and is currently working for) New Era Cap.  She has LOVED her job – especially the people she works with SO what better way to ring in the #TURNTforTEDS weekend than customized New Era hats?!  SO thankful for her awesome boss who helped me put these together 🙂  They also had the wedding date on the back!

If you’ve ever been to Key West you know that there is a TON to do!  The bars are amazing and super bachelorette friendly!  We had great dinners, had a private yoga instructor come to the house, we headed to a day pool party at Dantes, and a sunset sail to conclude the celebration!

MOST importantly – our girl Teddy seemed to have a great weekend and that is ALL anyone cared about 🙂
