Can you even believe how fast February flew by? I feel like it was just a few weeks ago that our house was decorated for Christmas and now we are starting to think spring and sunshine. Which is something here in Southern California we miss so much. Mother nature really kicked our asses here in SoCal this month. We had sink holes, freeways shut down because they turned into rivers, mudslides, and hurricane forced winds. It was absolutely insane. But we are hoping for a little more outdoor activities for March.
February was packed with indoor activities. We had our food tasting at our wedding venue. We were pretty early for this but we defiantly wanted our parents there with us and we figured the sooner the better. So picking our food was a big check off of our wedding to do list. I also got to celebrate a huge milestone for one of my best friends and also another huge success for Chris.
My best friend Bryan had his photography featured a magazine with a four page spread of some of his shots. And this past weekend Chris’s new venue, House of Blues Gardenwalk, opened with a huge opening party. Chris has worked for House of Blues for the past three years and last May they closed up their location in Downtown Disney. After 9 months of being shut down, they opened up their new location, just down the street at Gardenwalk, an outdoor mall here in Anaheim. It was an amazing party with tons of media, celebrity guests and amazing music.
I had to prep for these out of living room activities. I feel like I’ve been in hiding on my couch since November, so this month, with spring on the horizon, I realized I had to start hydrating my face so a bi weekly sheet mask became my best friend. Full sheet masks, under eye masks, charcoal, aloe… they were all my best friends this month. And they all made Chris laugh at me, and try to take my picture, every time.
My favorites have been the SOO AE Green Tea Collagen mask I got in my February IPSY subscription, Que Bella Professional Moisturizing gel eye masks that you can get at Target and my all-time favorite agave lip mask by Bite that you can get at Sephora. But I am going to keep trying more and maybe put together a post of my favorite masks later in the spring.
Can anyone tell I am super excited for spring to come? What are your favorite spring activities?
We had to try the new brewery that opened close to our house. Stereo’s wheat beer, Hazy Jane…. YUM! Try it!
I am so sad that this room isn’t big enough to hold our entire wedding. But how cute is the barrel room at Wilson Creek Winery in Temecula. So cute.
Blackbird in Temecula is such a yummy brunch spot to check out pre-wine tasting.
