Hi beauties! I could’ve done my usual 5 favorite things but there’s 2 such BIG ONES this week, well three, that it’s all I’m going to showcase this Friday!


1. We are Going to be Grandparents


In case you missed Mr. Nine and my video on Instagram, announcing this, watch it. We are blessed to announce that we are going to be having twin grandbabies this Fall. Our oldest and his lovely nurse fiancé are going to grace us with twins. Surprise of the BEST KIND! We will find out the sexes in a few weeks and I’d be lying if I said, I didn’t want a girl in there, but of course, happy healthy babies is all we want.

So it’s been a no-brainer forever that Mr. Nine‘s grandpa name would be Pop Nine because that was the name of his beloved grandpa. But for me, I’ve really struggled. Ultimately, we think it’s going to be “Glammy,” so the kids had these darling shirts made for us. I guess it’s all going to depend on what those babies want to call me, but one thing I know for certain; they will be spoiled, and they will be loved beyond measure!

Mr. Nine calls me Annie and Ann as do some of my friends and family, so maybe Grannie Annie or Gannie? LoL!

Oh and lovely mama had an ultrasound Tuesday so here is the 1st look at our beautiful grandbabes.

2. Laura Geller Chicago Luncheon

with Friends!

And another HUGE event this week also allowed me to see the lovely friends in The Blonde Squad! I ventured to Chicago yesterday and we were honored to be guests at a luncheon with the magnificent Laura Geller, founder of Laura Geller Beauty! Her award-winning makeup is an Oprah Favorite Thing and I love her devotion to ladies of all ages but especially those over 40! She’s a gem!

We enjoyed the most delightful lunch at Cindy’s, a rooftop restaurant on Michigan Ave. The view was spectacular! And the weather surprised us with some warmth and sunshine! 

After lunch our friends crew headed to the Broken Shaker, an award-winning cocktail bar with great street food. Always fun to hang and catch up with these sweethearts! The real deal unlike many influencers these days, with hearts of pure gold! Til next time ladies!

And if you missed it, Monday I did the first Paris recap! 2nd Paris recap coming This Monday. In the meantime, you’ll find me twin babies shopping, lol. 


Happy Weekend Loves!!
