I didn’t really intend to take a little blog break, but I’ve been busy.
When I wasn’t holed up in the corner of our sectional finishing the Fifty Shades trilogy (don’t judge a book by its cover or by what the media says– and read this review and this review and this review since I agree with these gals), I was throwing a baby shower for a sweet friend.
I stayed up until 3:00 a.m. on Saturday morning (Friday night?) to finish book 2 and then read all of book 3 on Sunday.
But we had a really fun brunch shower for my friend Tina and her baby girl. My friend, Allyson, made some really yummy baked shrimp and grits that I can’t wait to make here for us. So yummy!
The fabulous girls from Sweet Birdie’s Nest helped us pull together some of the adorable details. Tina is going to be such a precious mom. She got some great gifts and has the sweetest family and friends. It’s always so much fun to get everyone together.
I never posted pictures from my friend, Caroline’s baby shower. The girls from Sweet Birdie’s Nest helped us with this one, too. We used the colors from Caroline’s nursery and this is such a fun color combination.
Todd and I also had fun working the volunteer table at our church’s Funday Sunday event. Despite a chilly, rainy, Spring day, there was a great turnout. And of course, I don’t have a picture.
I need to finish up a couple of little projects for Hayes’s party and then I think we’re ready. This is my project for the week. I need to make a little bunting for his cake. I may do something simpler than this and just do some felt pennants. And I don’t need the little yellow bows.
I found this on Pinterest, but can’t find the original source
We’re hanging in there. Both boys are well this week, knock on wood. My schedule is remarkably clear this week and Todd is really busy with work. Fortunately, our busy weeks don’t always collide.
Hudson is almost three years old. How is that possible? I was looking at him tonight and I just realized how much he’s grown this year. No more baby fat. He’s all little big boy now. He still talks like a little boy, but he is no longer a toddler. He’s tall. He’s solid. And he’s independent. And this makes me a little sad. He has his majorly defiant moments, but then in an instant he is agreeable and easy to get along with. He’s easy to communicate with. I know that age 3 won’t be a cake walk, but I love these little hints of who he’s going to be. Love him!
