Have you ever come across the blog Spearmint Baby?  She posts such cute nursery design ideas.

Aren't these cookies cute?  You use a cookie cutter from William Sonoma to spell out the messages on your cookies.  I think these are darling.  Still trying to think of ideas for Aubrinn's bridal shower.  I think these would be fun.  I don't think $20 is too bad for the whole set.  You could totally use these cookie cutters for all sorts of things.

Out of Town This Week

We're out at my dad's all this weekand so all of my saved post pictures are at home.  No lovelies from me this week.  Love you much.  We learned that flying with Eliza can at times be great and at other times be NO BUENO.

$1 Store Trays

Aren't these trays so cute?  I love the sassy colors and the fact that they are made from things from The Dollar Tree.  I think the turquoise/pink combo and the green/turquoise combos are my favorite.

fun decor for your shower

I don't know if your shower is indoors or not, but I love this idea. It's strips of vellum sewn together and hung. I think it would be adorable. I saw it on Jordan Ferney's blog. Here's the link to the tutorial.

p.s. I ate an entire cantaloupe for lunch today. Yummy. Now I look like I'm having twins.
p.p.s. I think I have just about sealed the deal on "eleanor"...Trev was saying what nick names he'd call her and everything, so I know we're close. :)

Cute Cupcake Liners

I found this tutorial on UCREATE today.  I think these would be cute to make for the bridal shower I'm throwing for one of my old Young Women in July.  Aubrinn was my only Laurel for my first 6 months as YW President.  I always had to laugh b/c we are only 6 or 7 years apart, so it was an odd Leader/YW relationship.  We were more like sisters really.  Anyway, aren't these cute little cupcake liners?  My vain prideful heart wants this shower to be fabulous.  Aubrinn's family isn't in a position to do a whole lot for her and I can't trust that her little 22 year old friends know how to throw a good party.  And thus I feel pressure to make it nice for her but especially nice for me.  I'm a brat like that. :)

When Can I Move In?

I found my current stylish dream home a few months back and couldn't motivated my lazy rear to post about it.  I'm sure it's the yellow and gray combination that is pulling me in.  Funny how yellow used to do nothing for me and nowadays I fall madly passionatelyin love with anything yellow.  I'm a fickle girl.

I dare you to not fall in love....

Seriously, the yellow?  BE STILL MY HEART!!

Bringing Sexy Back

It's time for our poor sad blog to get its sexy back!  Poor thing has been so neglected.  My fault really.  Your post was the last post ages ago and I couldn't get myself back into the groove.  And then I saw this...and I fell in love and swooned a little.

I love the yellow and the band is gorgeous.  And now I'm motivated to share the pretties again.  Such a happy little ring.
