Sweet 16

Today we are celebrating The Boy’s 16th (OMG!) birthday! For Saturday, he asked his Grandmother to cook a special meal, chicken and rice along with some fresh made tamales. She also made him Mexican Hot Chocolate with plenty to last for the week. Today he was supposed to have a few friends over to watch The Game but they all cancelled at the last minute.

To cheer him up we took him to his favorite restaurant, Chama Gaucha, a Brazilian Steakhouse. I learned my lesson a few years ago, after feeling like I was going to either burst or go into a food coma, to pace myself and only ask for a small piece. Husband and The Boy still each until they are beyond full, and this time we had dessert!

Gorgeous Boy!
This week I spent a few days in the office and was able to wear a few NWT items purchased over the last two months. 
J Crew Cashmere Tee in Persimmon

I really liked the color pairings of this next outfit. I added my J Crew Giraffe Bangle, as it went perfectly with the sweater, and whole outfit.

Christian Louboutin Simple 70 in Metal Bronze
I did not attempt the Jason Wu launch at Target this morning. After trying to find some of the items online around 6 a.m. I knew the store would be wiped out. I hope Target has learned it’s lesson from the Missoni fiasco and will gradually stock items throughout the collection time period. Luckily, even though there were some cute pieces from the line, there was nothing I really “had to have”. 
Did any of you make it out? Did you get what you wanted? 
Have a Great Evening!

    Cute outfits! I actually got everything from the Jason Wu line I wanted online, and then wandered in my store around 10am and bought it all there, so I could cancel most of my orders. God bless Tuscaloosa, AL. Apparently no one went to my store!

    Audrey! I have a boy who is 16 as well and a bit of bottomless pit, so I can relate! Glad you spoiled him – 16 is a big one!

    Happy BDay to your son! He is a cutie!

    My jaw just dropped to the floor. I can't even believe you have a 16 year old! You look so young (cue jealousy). love the stilt striders on you, what size did you take?
