what's been going on around here...

You might have noticed that I didn't check in here much for awhile.  I have a wonderful excuse..in my opinion!  

I'm pregnant!  Matt and I will be parents (CRAZY) in August!  

As I've heard from many people, creativity doesn't come easily the first trimester.  That is definitely how I felt.  I was sooooo tired all of the time.  I didn't have horrible morning sickness but I did have a lot of food aversions and a good bit of nausea.  It's all worth it though!  

I'm 18 weeks now and finally have more energy.  I'm starting to be creative again - which is a good thing because I want to make all sorts of goodies for this little babe!!  

More updates to come!

lindy's baby shower

My dear friend Lindy is having a boy next month.  By the way, she will be such a wonderful mama to that boy!  I can't wait to meet him!

A baby on the way means something wonderful.... a baby shower!  Beth, Jessie, and I had so much fun planning and preparing for this special day.  Here are some of the highlights from the shower.

We took an old youth hymnal, added paper, and had people write messages to Lindy and her family.

Lindy loves fabric so in honor of her, we made handmade cloth napkins for each place setting.  They were a gift to Lindy so now she has a set of beautiful napkins.  I'm not going to lie... all of us wanted to keep them for ourselves.

The place setting.  We used 16 oz mason jars for glasses.

Beautiful flowers courtesy of Macall.

This was on a table placed outside the shower.  I'm bummed I didn't get a far away picture so you could get a real feel for what it looked like.  Precious is what it looked like.

There were three tables set up in the dining room using a collection of chairs from our homes.  Wonderful idea, Beth!

I love this picture of these three ladies:  the mama to be, Jessie, and Reggie (Beth's mom).

Lindy, we love you and had such a wonderful time celebrating you and your sweet boy!
