Pink Is In The Air!

Valentine's Day

I have to say I had a wonderful Valentine's Day!  My mom arranged to get cupcakes to me even though she lives in another state.  I had 3 texts wishing me Happy V Day before I got up at 6:00am this morning.  Dave's mom delievered a gift to my office and Trace Adkins sent boxes of girl scout cookies.   Dave brought me flowers to work and took me to dinner.  I am so grateful for such amazing family and incredible husband to be. I also started my day with a great run with one of my BFF's Kate.  She was wearing red even. :)

Mom sent me Gigi's cupcakes.  The flavors were Wedding Cake (how fitting), Princess Cupcake (Strawberry w/cream cheese frosting), Dutch Chocolate and a Grasshopper (mint chocolate chip).  I had a half of one tonight....Valentine's Day I have NO CONTROL.  If you havenet been there you must GO!

Jennifer's Baby Shower

So I have been planning a great friends baby shower since the first of the year and it finally took place yesterday!  I have to say it was amazing.  With the help of some wonderful friends and Dave's mom the shower was a huge PINK success!  I made sure to take plenty of photos to share!

Jen and I

Jen will be naming her bundle of joy Emma Katherine so I painted an E with pink glitter polka dots and added some bling!  I also talked to her husband Eli about getting me a picture of the ultrasound to make a picture out of.  I basically made a scrapbook page and framed it.  All the supplies I bought at Michael's.

I found a fabulous baby boutique called Lil' Cupcake on Etsy.  She made the custom order. I wanted the paci and tutu to match perfectly.  I HIGHLY suggest this store!

Are these not the cutest bibs?  We all loved the Single one!  They were puchased at Babies R Us.

This outfit was ADORABLE.  Ruffles all over!  Also the boas in the vase on the table was from Jen's Bachelorette Party. A nice touch :)

 Planning a little girl babyshower during Feb. is AWESOME because everything is pink!  On the cake table their were pink and white M&M's and iced animal crackers.  The cake was fresh strawberry with cream cheese frosting from Nashville Bakery Sweet and Sassy.

I had everyone bring their favorite childhood book for Baby Emma.  The pig on the table is from Home Goods and was my polka dot inspiration for the shower.

I purchased the invitations off They were great!

This was the guest book table.  I made a sheet with the invitation on it for everyone to sign.  It was a scrapbook sheet for her to use in Emma's scrapbook.  The stroller was full of moss and we found these cute pink roses in Judy's house.  Thank goodness for her and all her help!

I found the favors at Target.  They are loofahs with pink Hershey Kisses in bags wrapped with pink ribbon.  What girl doesn't want a pink loofah?

We played a cute game where everyone cut ribbon to where they thought their ribbon could fit perfectly around Jen's belly.  Dave's mom cut hers a little big, but it made a cute pink bow!

The menu for the shower consisted of baked brie, pigs in a blanket, fruit, veggies, spinach dip, mini sandwhiches, fruit tea and fluffy pink punch.

The shower couldn't of been such a success without all the help from Judy,Jamie, Bonnie, Lindsay and Cassie.  Thanks so much girls.  Next Up Bonnie's shower for little boy Jack.  What can I paint that is blue?
