Today's post is brought to you by Shankasaurus acting silly with mannequins in a dress & heels. Ok, so they're not legit heels cause they're wedges but let's not get picky here. I don't get this fancy often (literally only happens once a year, if that) so when it happens.. it's a big deal (to me). I also don't visit the Houston Galleria because people so when I saw the 900+ mannequins at Saks, I just had to take a picture Haha!
My childhood friend (& oldest knowing, 18+ years) had a baby boy on the first and Mama Carrizo & I met him on Saturday. Meet Sam Leon, the third and last kid, who is blessed with two older siblings that can't get enough of him and two fantastical parents who are raising their kids with mucho love! Can't wait to watch ya grow, little Sam! <3
So the reason the husband & I were all fancy schmancy was because we attended a friend's wedding Saturday night. The ceremony was held in the Heights under lots of trees and a beautiful gazebo. It was truly a perfect Saturday for a wedding & we are grateful to have been invited. I mean, it was crazy hot & humid but the moment the bride arrived, everyone forgot about their surroundings. She arrived in a vintage white car (too far to photograph) with her bridesmaids & MOH. I distinctly remember getting emotional as she grabbed her father's arm and he led her down the aisle. I also got very emotional when the bride & groom did their first dance. The combo of him lip-syncing to her the sweet song and her radiant smile made me all types of emotional. I mean, I wasn't balling but I had some serious tears. Love is such an amazing thing to watch.
Both the ceremony in the Heights and the reception at 51fifteen restaurant located above the Saks Fifth Ave store (who knew there was a restaurant up there) were fantastical! From the purple theme to the delicious food no, really the food was ah-mazing to the funny dances and the fantastical smiles all around.. we had a great time & we couldn't be happier for the bride & groom. Congratulations Michelle & Mikey, we wish you nothing but the best on this new adventure together!!
Sunday consisted of some morning laziness on my part and then some housework with grocery shopping in the evening. I wore my awesome new shirt from Ript Apparel to the grocery store. This is my first time buying from Ript, but at $11 I thought it was worth giving them a shot. I love me some t-shirts, plus this is probably the best crossover I've seen in a long time. Bob's Burgers and Guardians of the Galaxy by irongiant775. FYI, Ript releases 3 shirts every day (not sure about the weekends) for $11 plus s&h. Ladies, I suggest ordering one size up as I am normally a small, but the Medium (after a wash) fits mucho better.
Did you notice the Space Invaders tie that E was wearing? Yeah, we thank Lootcrate for that. If you're not already signed up, click here.

No wedding or fun event is complete without a photo booth. Shout out to Extra-Ordinary Events for hooking it up with the awesome photo booth and props! The husband and I did pretty good on our shots and I'm pretty shocked about it, haha!
Cheers to the new week!!
