1. My husband and I are expecting a baby boy this September 🙂 I’m having trouble coming up with a good push present request – I was thinking perhaps sapphire jewelry since that’s September’s birthstone. Any other suggestions or recommendations?
The first thing I did was hire a wedding planning (Amy Abbott Events) and then went to Cabo with my mom to meet her and find a venue. After that she took it from there and helped me with my vendors, rehearsal dinner, etc. I would definitely recommend hiring one, it made planning/life so much easier!
Meggan: Kyle and I have a few accounts – ROTH, multiple 401ks, a health savings account. Honestly he takes care of most of that for us so I’m not much help 🙁
Meggan: I haven’t really changed mine either but some nights I skip out on my oil (if my skin feels too oily) and just use this overnight cream. I just started using this Colorescience loose mineral sunscreen during the day and LOVE it. You could definitely give it a try!
Lol no worries! A few of our favorites are here (have this and love it), here, here, and here!
Fun areas to hang out in are River North, Gold Coast, West Loop, and Old Town. There are sooo many fun bars, shops, and restaurants in all those areas. Some restaurants good for big groups are Zed451, Quaritno (perf for big groups), The Dawson, Carmines, and Parlor Pizza. Some good party spots are El Hefe, Paris Club, Cindy’s Rooftop, W rooftop, RM Champagne Lounge, the Godfrey rooftop, Howl At The Moon (dueling piano bar) and you have to go to the Hangge Uppe for late night dancing. Some dresses we love – here, here, here, and here. Have fun!
Meggan: I love Birkenstocks! I have this pair in mocha and wear them often. Usually just with casual outfits – jeans + tee, shorts + tank, or even sometimes with joggers.
I (Meggan) went for my friends bach party and it was soooo fun! One morning we did the pedal tavern (do it in the am because it gets so hot in the afternoon) which was soo fun. A few bars that sand out to me that we went to were The Stage, Tootsies, and Honky Tonk (we pretty much lived at The Stage lol). One afternoon we went to the 12 South neighborhood which was fun to explore. Lot’s of cute shops, bars, and restaurants! A couple cute things you could pack along with you are this romper, this dress, this set (top + shorts), this top, and these jean shorts. A bandana would be a cute accessory for your neck or to tie on your purse! Have fun!
12. Meggan – My husband and I live in Houston and are looking to take a quick trip to Dallas. Any suggestions for things to do or places to eat?
I would check out the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, walk around historic downtown, shop at Highlandpark Village and grab lunch there, Topgolf, get drinks in the basement of The Joule Hotel, check out Deep Ellum, and check out the Dallas Farmers Market. Some of my favorite restaurants are HG Sply Co, Uchi, Pie Tap, Dolce Riveria, Katy Trail (huge/fun outdoor patio). And I’ve been dying to try Gemma and Shinsei! I still feel new to Dallas so I’m sure there are a ton of amazing things/good places to eat that I haven’t mentioned. Dallas girls, leave your go-to’s in the comments below 😉
This set is cute (top + skirt), this lace bodycon dress is pretty, this jumpsuit is hawwwt, and love this dress too!
I actually never went when I lived in Chicago! I always got it done at my sister-in-laws spot in San Diego when I would visit her. I also never went in for a consultation, I just knew I wanted it lol. You could definitely go in for one though! Also, Disport works better than Botox does for me and I think it’s a little cheaper per unit.
16. Do you have any suggestions for a cute, modern dresser for my bedroom that isn’t too expensive?
A few we love under $500 – here, here – love this one!, here, and here!
17. What site did you guys go through for your website? There are so many out there, do you have suggestions of some that are good or have worked well for you guys?
