life rearrangedLinking up with Life Rearranged for another Instafriday show and tell!

Relatively speaking, I'd say this was a pretty exciting week!

On Saturday, I attended a very girly bridal shower for my good friend Marysia. 

Yum! Look at that spread. (I totally broke my diet that day because I cannot resist quiche and funfetti cake.)

Easter started off with a wonderful church service and brunch at my house afterward.

We started with sangrias (thanks Courtney for the recipe!)
And the menu included sweet potato au gratin, Italian sausage, and paleo frittata.

Mint sprigs and garden roses on the mantle.

Siena and I did some shopping.  This picture was taken 2 minutes before I got my first ever bee sting.  Ouuuuuch.

Just hanging out... (thanks Rachel for that tunic!!!)
And the most exciting event this week, by far...


*The bumpit is an "As Seen On TV" product that adds a nice little poof to your hair.  I found that the smaller bumpit (see picture above) looks fairly natural, especially when I put my hair in a ponytail after.  I did have to tease my hair a bit with the included comb, but didn't use any hairspray like the directions called for, and it stayed in just fine.  And I have slick/straight/thin half-asian hair.  I give it a thumbs up!  Warning:  the larger bumpit makes you look like an alien.  There is no reason to sport a bump that big unless it's on your tummy and you're 9 months pregnant.  I got my bumpits on amazon for really cheap.

P.S. I do like nifty hair inventions.  I have the perfect bun twisty thing and am really tempted to buy the tony tail because I can never get my hair wrapped around the elastic nicely.  I also had the topsy tail in 3rd grade.  Remember those? I just noticed the other day that they still sell those in drug stores!

Your paleo Easter brunch looks like it turned out perfectly!

I also looooove weird hair gadgets. So sad that I got rid of my perfect bun gadget during a move. I used to use that thing all the time!

I loved the topsy tail! Totally bought one at the OC fair in elementary school... along with a ton of awesome scrunchies.

Glad the sangria turned out well :)
