weekend recap

My weekend was full of showers. I attended a bridal shower on Saturday and helped host a baby shower on Sunday. I absolutely love showers, so it was a fun weekend!

With the Bride-to-be, Sara

I thought she was wearing the perfect bridal shower dress!
Sara and Kenneth met at medical school and are an adorable couple. Kenneth was one of my student workers and I miss having him in the office!

I went to a baby boutique near the shower and fell in love with it. (Peek a Boo Baby, for those in town.) I wanted to buy so many things, but I was good. I can't stop thinking about this Kissy Kissy romper though. I think I need to go back and get it.

Thanks for all the comments on the gender announcement. Ty and I are thrilled to be having a sweet, baby boy!

I helped host a baby shower at church on Sunday. Christina had her little girl, Sadie, a couple of weeks ago, so the theme for the shower was Welcome Sadie! We used pineapples to express the welcome part.

I found these tiny pineapples at the grocery store and couldn't pass them up.

I made all the paper products for it. The guest book sheets:

Ty worked all weekend, so tonight I'm watching the Oscars and eating girl pizza.

I made pesto for the first time tonight. It was so much easier than I thought it would be. I followed Iowa Girl Eats' recipe, but subbed almonds for the walnuts.

We also sold my car this weekend! We listed it on autotrader around 9:30 in the morning on Saturday and had around 10 phone calls and 5 e-mails about it. We sold it at 4 in the afternoon to a co-worker of mine. She bought it for her teenage son. I'm so thankful that it sold so fast!

I know I shouldn't wish away months, but I'm glad this month is almost over. Ty was on an ER rotation where he worked 1 pm - 1 am. This meant that I went days without seeing him. On ER months they only work 15 shifts, but his off days were always days I was at work. I'm actually looking forward to a surgery month.

  2. The bride-to-be is so pretty! And you should definitely get that romper; very cute :)
