From L: Happy Thursday, Glitter Girls! Long time, no post. Sorry, but I’ve been BUSY…busy planning the best baby shower ever, that is!

As you know, J is expecting a precious baby boy in May. Her bridesmaids and I (with a little help from my sweet mother) showered the beautiful mom-to-be with a brunch at Cook Hall in the W Buckhead. Each one of us is so seriously excited to meet this little guy! Here are the deets and a few of our favorite photos:

friday five: new year's resolutions.

Happy Friday, glitter girls!

We’re focusing on New Year’s Resolutions for this week’s Friday Five. Behold, our top five resolutions for 2013.

1. Upgrade our desks. We’ve talked about work spaces before here and here, so you might think that our offices are already pretty fantastic. Not the case. There’s always room for improvement! We need creative yet functional spaces that allow for major multi-tasking.  Stephanie Todaro, contributor to the fabulous blog Design*Sponge, has three new desk set-ups to inspire your own office makeover.

Quirky Desk
we must, must must have that dachshund letter holder.  we must.

2. Take our manicures to the next level. Normally we just experiment with nail color…but this year we’re going to go beyond polish and try this chic glitter mani from the Glitter Guide (of course).

we can do this, we can do this…

3. Eat more vegetables. We’re actually pretty healthy eaters…but we could probably benefit from eating a few more veggies. Check out these amaze healthy fruit and vegetable recipes from Cooking Light.

4. Train for a 5K. L, a sorta-kinda runner, was sidelined in 2012 by injury after injury. This year, it’s back to square one. We’re both going to run a 5k…at some point. Here’s our training plan. 

L walked this 5K...but will run the next!

5. Learn to frost cupcakes.  It’s time to step up our baking game. We’ve put this off long enough. Valentine’s Day is coming up and WE NEED TO LEARN how to frost cupcakes.  Our Best Bites gives the BEST how-to.

first: get your piping right!
