Dreea wanted a Great Gatsby themed birthday party so bad she even created her own pinterest board. Her husband Mario, Miller and I lied SO much in order for this party to be a complete surprise…I could feel my nose growing by the minute! I dislike lying SO baddly and let alone having to lie to my bestfriend was the WORST.  Miller and I had to come up with a huge multi layered lie to get her to come get her hair done Gatsby era style AND to be at my house by 7:15pm…..BUT it worked!! YAY!

Party prep began months in advance! We took everything Dreea had pinned and made it come to life!! During all the planning and party prep Miller and I recorded a bunch of mini videos (this is what triggered me to start vlogging!) so we could show Andrea everything that went into her party!! Thank you to Mario for helping set up the day of the party and for buying all the food items! People ate everything!!!!

Champagne glasses were from Amazon I spray painted the bottoms then hot glued them for safety. Edible glitter was added to the edges and pink paper straws to top them off!

Mario and Andrea were being WAY too CHEESY…..so Julia, Jackie and Vito had to put a stop to that with the Nerf guns!

CHEERS to the BIRTHDAY GIRL. The one who thought we forgot and were TOO busy to have a party for her.

Everyday I am reminded how lucky I am to have two very strong and amazing best friends. Miller, thanks for all the co-party planning! Andrea, we love you….PS you owe US BIG TIME.

WE LOVE YOU!!

Much love, Miranda

          To me family photos aren’t about the “perfect posed smiles”…..it is about being together and making a memory. Being REAL together and sometimes that means someone isn’t smiling…or someone is looking away….or someone’s hair might be out of place.  I know Kristen was worried about Claire not wanting to get her photo taken. She had told me all about how she had been prepping Claire all day and sure enough Claire was a little hesitant. But I felt confident enough that I would be able to at least get one good photo of Claire during the session! As Barney Stinson says, ” Challenge Accepted!”
