it's No Big Deal ... just 9 months later :-/
Well, don't I feel sheepish ...
I start this blog thing - and then I never keep up with it.
But now I have something to blog about ...
not only am I watching an episode of Criminal Minds, featuring Gabrielle Carteris (Andrea from 90210 for those of you that didn't have a TV in high school or lived in a cave) ... but I also recently planned and executed a baby shower! My good friend, Megan is going to have a baby in April! Baby's name is Emma Grace and Megan's mother in law, Debbie and I were so excited to plan the shower! So ... here are some pictures!

Here is the food table. i love to use these paper lanterns!T hey are such an easy way to decorate!

Another shot of the food table. We had chicken salad sandwiches on mini croissants and sirloin sandwiches with arugula and roasted garlic aioli. Good stuff. A shot of the clothesline - just a cute and fun decoration. The best part is that it doubles as a gift for mom!! she got to take these cute clothes home for little Emma!

I think my favorite part of this shower was the Cookie Buffet. Candy and sweets buffets are becoming so popular these days. So I wanted to change it up a bit and do something a little different. And who doesn't love cookies? So we offered several delicious cookies in a cute arrangement, and here we are - a cookie buffet! We also had oreo truffles ...

Another shot of the oreo truffles - and the bird cookies. Thanks to Janet (Debbie's friend) we had the most gorgeous bird cookies to fit the theme of the shower!

Megan and Debbie - such a nice sunny day. Thank goodness the weatherman was wrong. It was supposed to rain!

Megan with her awesome personalized gifts from her cousin, Cheryl. They were so beautiful! She sent several personalized burp cloths and a super-soft blanket embroidered with Emma's name. Such special gifts!

The shower was so fun - I'm sad it's over.
But i can't WAIT to meet little baby Emma!! :)
