B is for Baby Boyd

My best friend is expecting her first child in February. So exciting! Upon hearing the news - my girlfriends and I immediately started planning a baby shower in our hometown.  With Emily & her  husband moving to DC in November and the Holidays, we had to act fast!

We didn't know the sex of Baby Boyd prior to ordering the invitations and planning the decor so we went with a "gender neutral" - yellow & gray, bumblebee theme.  The other hostesses and I had the best time finding cute ideas on Etsy and elsewhere.

Here's what we came up with:

Custom Baby Bunting 

Classic Clothes Line with a Wooden Monogram

Tissue Pom Poms

Bumblebee Food Cards 

Invitation said, "Buzz on Over for Brunch" :) 

What an adorable Mommy-to-be

She got LOADS of precious clothes, monogrammed blankets and all those other baby necessities.  Baby stuff is just so darn cute!

Mommy + Hostesses 

What a fun and special day for Emily and all of us who got to share in it with her! We all can't wait to meet Baby Henry in February.

Evening Stroll

Only a few streets from our house there is a really magnificent tree. We pass it on our evening walk with Dorsey Dog and every time I am in awe of it's size and beauty.

This picture doesn't do it justice

And just past this tree is a spot where we get to enjoy this view...

I love our evening strolls for these beautiful sights and of course the wonderful company too!

Hope you're having a great week. xo

Witch or Pirate?

Nick and I are in the camp of no clothes on Dorsey Dog but we do make an exception for Halloween.

On my way home from work I made a quick stop at the It's Only 99 Cent store for water but low and behold I stumbled upon two dog costumes. Yes for 99 Cents each!

Costume 1: Witch

Costume 2: Pirate 
*D's ears are tucked under that cap - no easy task.

Here is a behind the scenes glimpse of how we got the above images...

We'll chalk this up to Father / Daughter Bonding 

Help Me Please - My Parents are Crazy!

Dorsey would like you to weigh in on her Halloween 2010 Costume - witch or pirate? You pick!
