another bouncing baby boy!

we had a shower today for a sweet friend, julie, who is due soon to have her fourth child and 3rd boy! her sister-in-law and i collaborated on this one – so fun! susie made these great invites by scanning fabric. they turned out great.

the inspiration for this shower was this tutorial for baby balls from this blog.

here’s the topiaries again, but with a ribbon switch. sneaky, huh?

the napkins were tied with fabric scraps leftover from the balls.

thank you, joy, for making these delicious cupcakes with fondant marbles, and for coordinating all the food!

here’s the glowing mama! isn’t she adorable?


with all the rain today, and no school or errands to run off to, we’ve stayed in our jammies ALL day, only taking them off to do a little of this:

what a great day for a bubble bath! and this guy decided to show off his standing skills to his ladies:
they were very impressed. today’s chill also called for a healthy dose of this:

which of course lead to a carpet picnic – sugar snap peas and hummus.

of course, i got in my daily dose of these: computer, talks with nicole, and chocolate.

what do you like to do on these blustery days?
