The nautical themed baby shower last weekend was a great success! It was supposed to be "lighthouses and sailboats" but I ran out of time and resources so it became just..."sailboats". :O)
I'd been kind of thinking about the shower for weeks in advance and searching here and there on Pinterest(where I got the cute napkin idea!), but I really had no idea what I was doing until two days before the shower. Ack! I don't know why I do that to myself. I just can't work until I'm down to the wire! I'd make a horrible science project partner. Good thing I was homeschooled. :o)
We had the shower at the house of the mom-to-be's mother-in-law and she supplied some of the things so I think I was only out about $20. Nice! And most of that was the balloons. I feel like I could write a book:"Dollar Store Parties". :O)"On-hand Parties"? "Parties for Poor People"?? haha The cake was made by Girly Girl's Creations, which is a business that a girl at church started. She's such an entreprenuer-and she only just turned 14!
Anyway. So, about her mother-in-law, Kathy. (On the far left in the photo of me.) She's actually one of my best friends! I feel like I should tell you guys about her because she's such a big part of my life. She's one of the most wonderful people (persons?)on the planet. Seriously. I've never met anyone quite like her. The longer I know her, the higher up the pedestal she climbs. So if I ever mention "Kathy" you know who she is now. :O) She's also the mom of this little sweetie, one of Paige's best friends.
Well I hope you guys are doing great today! I'll be honest. I am just tired right now. Maybe it's the end of summer rush? I'm running around like a crazy person. So if I'm a little scarce now and then, don't think it's because I'm too lazy eating bon-bons to talk to you guys. :o)
Although. Chances are, I probably will be eating bon-bons.
P.S. I didn't kill the beautiful map. It was already cut up when I acquired it. :O) Just so you know.
