Of course in this social media age Stacy and I met via a Facebook group, I believe we both may still be part of 🤔 I'm not sure. 

I was thinking about getting into wedding photography and Stacy was kind enough to let me tag along to one of hers in Galveston.  

 Long story short three years later here we are still shooting weddings together and now blogging and brunching together too. 

Stacy recently celebrated her 32nd birthday by having a small brunch where we were able to box up toiletries for the Alvin Women's shelter. It was so much fun and such a nice thing to do to help out others in need, it is so crazy how the things we sometimes take for granted are so needed by others. 

Stacy asked everyone to bring in toiletries in to the event and we all created a box, decorated it and wrote a note to help uplift the person opening it. It made my heart very happy not only to celebrate with my friend but help someone in need. 

The best part was celebrating another grand milestone with a very good friend. 

Mostess Box Launch Party

So I have to admit, I am an introvert by nature I don't do well in social situations.  I guess that is why this blogging thing is a much better avenue for me.  

It also doesn't help that while I have been pregnant I don't want to stick my belly into other peoples conversations.  So when I saw the invite for the Mostess Box launch party I wasn't too sure I wanted to go but I knew that I had to go support my friend Stacy.

I am so glad that my introverted self didn't win this battle because it was purely amazing.  All the desserts, that I did my best to stay away from and all the beautiful set ups using the 4 different Mostess Box were so photo/blog worthy.   

You can find the latest box here and see what you missed out on previous boxes.  There are 4 boxes a year with certain items to help you be the perfect host. 

The founder Lindsey Rose King came up with the idea after being the host for an engagement party for a friend.  She is very aware of all the trouble we go through to host the perfect party with all the cute details that have your friends wondering where did you get it.  And now you can just tell them Mostess Box.

The great thing is that with the holidays coming up right around the corner Mostess Box takes all the hassle out of it for you.  You can use the box to host your own party or give it as a gift to friends so they can host you!  It is a total win, win.  

If you are looking for more tips on hosting your own party, definitely check out the Mostess Box blog it has tons of tips/tricks!

The amazing Wink by Erica made these delicious macaroons and I am so glad that I will be using her for the baby shower next month.  Don't worry they taste as good as they look!

And I walked away with my first ever swag bag!  It included the most amazing cotton candy from Toast from the Host!  If you have an event coming up and want to do something different than the norm, I would totally look her up.
