A Musical Note, Pinata and Party

We had a big 30th birthday bash for my boss last week and the decorations came out…PERFECTLY.  My other coworker did 99% of the decorations around the music note theme (she works in that department)~ and it made me want to copy it for another party!!

Here are the decorations below~~ the creme flags in the middle are a music sheet pattern.  SO CUTE.  The entire party was a white/black/cream color theme.


My bad pinwheels on the tables with catering from Fundamental in Westwood (SUCH GREAT FOOD).


Isn’t this sign so adorable??  The letters are made of a music sheet pattern and the little notes on the side add the perfect touch. ❤


This was LITERALLY the only thing I contributed too.  Hanging notes and pinwheels.  I wouldn’t say these were “cute” or “crafty”…they just sorta added to the music theme that my talented coworker put together.


AND the FINALE~~~A MUSIC NOTE PINATA!!!  How incredibly adorable is this???  My coworker MADE IT from scratch!!!!  She put the pinata on top of music sheets that had the birthday song printed on it.  SO CLEVER, CRAFTY and freaking amazing.  She also made the little name sign on top of the cake. ❤


We always try to celebrate each other at work whether it’s a birthday, a celebration, or a great life moment.    I love my job and the creative/loving team I work with.  This party is just one example of what we do for each other.  ❤


Weekend Recap & Photodump: Big Bear

Two weekends ago Markel and I went to Big Bear with his friends.  It was absolutely amazing.  I’ve never been in the summer nor have I seen the lake~ so this was quite the treat. Our friend owns the cabin and it was a real treat to check out this sweet spot by the lake.  We jet skied, played a LOT of board games, and did some fun things that shall remain pictureless ❤

Here are little bits of our weekend. xo



Jet Skies on the lake, snacks, beer and sand castles~ the perfect weekend!


Markel and I got super sunburned.  I applied sunscreen twice and my face/shoulders were still crispy.  The sun was very intense on the lake!

Can’t wait to back to the lake with friends again~~

The Morning of the Wedding!

The morning of the wedding…the calm and fun times before the big day.  My bridesmaids were AWESOME as they helped me get ready, helped with the flowers, and also made sure I was eating/drinking!  Here’s a collage of our morning together, as my last moment as Ms. Esther Chang.

These are all from a simple point and shoot camera.  Professional pics to come ❤











Oh man…Such a fun and relaxing morning.  I think the last half hour was pretty cray~ but it was all worth it! xoxo ❤

Happy Friday!

Found these two pictures from Pinterest and just LOVED them.  Such gorgeous scenery, love the retro feel of them, and they make me wish I was out there with them instead of at work indoors.  boo.

It’s the weekend and I’m incredibly excited to make the most of it! xoxo
