I kind of stole the idea for this outfit from my BFF Alicia. She borrows my clothes a lot and I'm always inspired by what she chooses and what items she puts together. So she thinks I'm doing her a favor by letting her borrow clothes but really she is doing ME a favor by giving me inspiration! Hey, Isn't that what friends are for? Thanks A!

How was your weekend? I had a great weekend celebrating one of my favorite people who just happens to share some of my DNA, my brother, Dan! His Birthday is on the 14th so we went out to dinner on Saturday to Barrel 44, which was super delish! Then my husband and I hosted a party for him at our house on Sunday! For the party, I set up a photo booth. I hung a sign next to the photo area asking guests to do their best Dan impression and included props to assist them. I had fake mustaches, fake tattoos, an Ohio State cap and diploma, a microphone, a motorcycle jacket, and other things that reminded me of Dan! It was so much fun! Here are a few shots from the party:
brother Dan with his friends son
 Me pretending to be an architect like my big brother, Dan
 My husband Jason made signs with "Dan-isms" This one says "Real men aren't afraid to Saab" because Dan drives a vintage Saab

 Yes, the photo background is Yo Gabba Gabba! Even 35 year olds like cartoons!

  Hope you are having a great Monday!
