Last week was my bff's birthday, so we celebrated the only way three grown girls would: a tea party. We got dressed up, drove down to Beverly Hills & had the most delicious & adorable tea party of our lives at the Peninsula Hotel. I've always been a girly girl, so my inner little girl was so excited. All of the little tea cakes, sandwiches & desserts were so cute & so, so good. Plus, the tea was amazing. I had my favorite tea, Rooibos & it was perfect. There was even a harpist playing in the background. I highly recommend going to tea. 


 The other night we packed up the car, the kids, grabbed dinner to go & headed to the beach. It was the most perfect ending to the day. We met up with some of our friends, the kids played, our husbands surfed & we chatted. It was so fun. Plus, I finally got a picture infant of this amazing bougainvillea bush I've been eyeing down the last few times we've gone to the beach. Also, this dress is the perfect beach cover up. It can totally get dressed up or down, I seriously love it.

Back when I was getting married I searched high & low for the perfect bridesmaid dresses & failed terribly until my mom found Tobi. Tobi has adorable clothes for suuuuuch a low cost, it's kind of crazy. Ever since then I have loved their site, especially this dress. It's the perfect thing to throw on & is instantly flattering, I seriously love it, plus it is super comfortable. If you haven't checked out Tobi yet, you definitely need to.

Visiting the plantations was one of the highlights of our girls trip to New Orleans. All of the history behind them was so interesting to learn about. We visited Oak Alley Plantation & Laura, a traditional creole Plantation, they were both gorgeous & totally different from one another. We took tours at each plantation, sipped on *virgin* mint juleps & really got a look into the plantation lifestyle.
