Our family of four is expanding!  Our final addition will be here at the end of November, possibly just in time for my hubby’s birthday!

happy may

Even though I was MIA as a blogger for all of April, it’s May now and I’m back!  This weather is working wonders for my mood!  I love the sunshine!  The girls and I worked outside in our flower beds all morning, and then enjoyed a little picnic lunch on the patio.

This afternoon- painting!  I can’t wait for more fun in the sun!

baby sprinkle for victoria

One of my sweetest friends, Daniela, is having a baby girl in a few short weeks, so I threw her a small baby shower, or sprinkle if you will, to celebrate!

DSC_0202DSC_0204The baby’s name will be Victoria, which I think is gorgeous, just like she is sure to be!  I crafted her name onto cardboard letters from Hobby Lobby and used scrapbook paper to decorate them.  Unfortunately, the store was out of the “C” and “R” for several weeks, so I had to improvise,  but I do plan to finish her name so that Daniela can add it to nursery!

DSC_0207On the menu, we had chicken salad and pb&j sandwiches, mini wienies, brie cups (recipe to come!), chips with a salsa and sour cream dip, and a fruit platter.

DSC_0208For dessert, we all enjoyed Daniela’s favorite- chocolate cake!
