Weekend Recap

This weekend flew by!

Somehow, someway, I managed to get everything done for my little sis's shower. The theme was an ocean party. We came up with the theme from her bedding, which is blue with lots of cute little ocean creatures on it. I loved the colors of pinks, blues, and oranges! Considering the baby's gender will be a surprise, I think it worked out nicely.

Friday morning was crazy with finishing up last minute things, taking the twins to the doctor for their 4 month check up and getting on the road at a decent hour.

I'm so lucky that my cousin still lives back home and helped with a lot of the details there. We spent the night at her house Friday, and she helped me finish up the favors. We dipped the sugar cookies I baked into royal icing and added the handmade tags.


A first for me was making a NON-edible cake! I tried my hand at a diaper cake.


For my first one, I was pretty happy with how it turned out.

The menu included different soups, breads, fruits, and snacks.


This was a bowl of "fish food" had popcorn, M&M's, and 2 kinds of goldfish in there!

Everyone seemed to have a great time, and she received a lot of really nice gifts.


One month to go, and I'll be a proud aunt!


  1. Yay!! You are such an awesome sis and the cake looks great :)

  2. What a cute theme. I love the diaper cake!!! Sounds like everyone had a great time.

  3. Oh my goodness! Love the cake! And how exciting to be an Aunt--cant wait to hear when the day arrives :)
