A few weeks ago, I had the honor to co-host a baby shower for my forever friend, Brittany. Friends since second grade, bridesmaids in each other's weddings, moms are best friends, she's practically family. Thankfully, my mom and "Tutu Kathy" (an aunt of sorts) were able to step up and really host this shower while I got to just help with decorations and stationery. Between the three of us, this shower was so so adorable and so so delicious. Here's some photos of the event along with some links for their amazing recipes. Seriously amazing recipes. But first, let's start with the beautiful mother to be!! Then we'll get on to those lovely party details
Hey there race fans! I'm so excited to be sharing photos from my best friend's baby shower earlier this month! Especially after sharing her maternity photos last week! Because of their love of vintage and cars, their baby boy, Hudson's, nursery will be vintage car themed. But because Amie grew up as a drag racer in the NHRA, we felt compelled to gear the shower toward Amie's *racy* past. It was such a fun shower to plan and to maximize the theme down to the smallest detail! The Invitation Suite I struggled and fretted over this invitation
Last week I posted about my time at the Walt Disney Family Museum, which was the whole point of this trip, but while we were going up there with our friends Lauren and Kellen, we made the most of it with stops for dinner with friends, touristing around the city, and getting to attend our friend's newly launched church! First stop: Bakersfield! Our friend Kathleen moved there 2 years ago and this was my first visit to her new hometown! It was definitely an overdue visit. Aren't these 2 too cute! Plus I got to see the Little Free Library in person that I had posted about a few months ago (thanks to Kathleen's blog for the tip)! And of course when we had dinner at Eureka Burger, I just had to get the burger with the fried egg. Because it's the best. Oh and hot sauce, and bacon. There was no question there. Okay and just one more food photo
I may work by myself all day morning, day, and night long but last night I started thinking about the amazing and supporting "colleagues" I've developed. I work on my Etsy shop orders from dawn until the real job starts, and then usually late into the night, so these people are my rocks, truly
Little Miss Amelia turned one earlier this month! And for Mia's birthday photos, we wanted to head down to the beach to take photos that we could use as decoration at her Under the Sea birthday party. I know that she's pointing at her grandma behind me, but I like to think she's saying "I'm one!" (P.S. Thanks Grandma Kim for being THE BEST assistant ever!) I love this girl's smile! She just loves life, and is curious about everything! She has the heart for adventure! Once we got closer to the beach itself, it was time for a wardrobe change! Rachel made Mia these adorable crowns for the photoshoot
I am SO excited to announce that Amie's Cherry Blossom Festival bridal shower was featured on True Blu, a wedding site for the friends of the bride! I wish I knew about this site last year, so helpful! See the post on Trueblu here, my own shower post here, and the post by our professional event photographer Jess from J. Rose Photography.
Last week, my best friend finally let the cat baby out of the bag! She's expecting her first little babe this December! Before she even found out that she was pregnant, she had told me that she had wanted to take these feet photos with their little pup (okay she's not that little now, remember these Christmas photos??) So of course I am so excited to meet my new little niece, or nephew. I'm already dreaming of the cuddles, photo shoots, Disneyland trips, and mini milestones all along the way. And of course, dreaming of the baby shower!! It feels like just yesterday that I was immersed in all things pink and cherry blossoms! Now, don't you worry, I'm sure I'll be posting all along the way
