Showered with love

Last week I was feeling the love and this week I was showered with love with another baby shower for this Sneaky baby of ours. What I lucky girl I am!

This weekend was a baby shower with friends.  Let me tell you I have the best ones around. It was a beautiful day…perfect.  Really I could go on and on, but one of my friends who threw the shower for me blogged about it already, so instead of reinventing the wheel, you can read all about it here 🙂

Okay…wasn’t that a truly “Martha” event… Love those ladies.

A rare moment of quite…. I think it lasted 15 minutes

We also had my Mama, Niece and Nephew stay over for the weekend. Wow! Three kids in our tiny place that is in the middle of rearranging and removing of crap, who are all so excited to see each other…. well let’s just say if I wasn’t preggers  I would have been participating in the cocktails with Hubby and Mama for sure!  It’s 5 o’clock somewhere!  But truly I do love them, love seeing them and wish they lived closer!

The Kiddo’s room was updated last week too. One thing we did was a little art project Kiddo saw on Pinterest, )Yes my 4 year old Kiddo loves to look at Pinterest with me for projects to do… love her!) What she actually said was “I really, really, really want that in my Big Sister room.” Okay will do and we did.  And it was easy….here are the steps:

First find simple images on the web of the princesses of choice, or anything for those without princess loving kiddos, and print them out.  I enlarged the image, and printed each quarter of the image and typed it together.

Then cut out the image and tape on top of the final paper for your silhouette, tape a lot to hold the image in place.  I used dark pink wrapping paper…shocking!  If you are not super stealthy with cutting you might want to use a thicker paper, it might be a bit more forgiving.

Once the silhouette is cut out, double stick tape to your background paper, I used simple white poster board, frame and hang.

Super cute little girl, I mean Big Sister, art for pennies.

More of the Kiddo’s Big Sister room to come later this week, I know you are sitting at the edge of your seat to see it (giggle)…signature

Feeling the love!

Yesterday was Family baby shower day! My Aunt Anita and my Mom gave me a wonderful shower, the only thing that would have made it better is if Hubby didn’t have to work.  Since you are on this roller coaster ride with me, I thought I would share all the “Martha” goodness with you, pictures speak more than words, so here we go!

Holly Happy Baby Bump- seeing this cake makes me so happy, and for those who don’t know, I do not have a sweet tooth, unless there is a Princess Torte around.

So many of my family and friends where there to help celebrate Sneaky B, I was seriously feeling the love!
