Pretty Woman, Pretty Babies, Pretty Things! All the pretties for this edition of Friday Favorites!

 1. The FUN for Mom’s Birthday

The Cake Bake Shop

It all started last Thursday at The Cake Bake Shop in Caramel, IN. We started celebrating mom’s birthday early with a wonderful tea, it was reminiscent of the one Mr. Nine and I had in London. The place is so phenomenal that we decided to host a bridal shower for our DIL to be next spring. Can't wait!

She's so precious!

More on my outfit to come soon in a post.

Pretty Woman

Then on Sunday, (her actual birthday) mom and attended the Pretty Woman Musical.  It was so good! Of course, it was fitting that I pulled out my $2 Pretty Woman garage sale dress from 25 years ago. Love that thing. I found one similar HERE and you can get the matching purse HERE.


The BEST gift mom got was seeing the twin girlies on her birthday. After the musical, we met Mr. Nine at the kid's house with pizza and an old-fashioned cream pie I made (my recipe HERE) in hand so that the twin girls could celebrate their great grandma! Mom was in heaven!

And this photo melts my heart.
