It's All About...

Happy Monday, Islanders!

I was busy with God baby's shower and haven't had a chance to tell you about my exciting feature on The NY Melrose Family blog!  I'm giving away some hard-earned cash and would LOVE if you headed over for the chance to win!  Even if you don't need the Visa gift card, check out the ruffle back drop tutorial.  Now, onto shower post #1:

God baby's shower was this past Saturday and it was fabulous!  I, however, have a confession:

I was a hot mess!

No, not in that way!  I showered, I combed my bun, I was ready at the start time... I was just so nervous that it wouldn't come together the way I envisioned that I couldn't sleep.  I put pressure on myself with my expectations that, partnered with my everyday REAL life, made for a stressful combination.  

Long story short, everything was great.  I was reminded that it isn't about table linen and arrangements, it is about:

Smiles. Hugs. Fun. Love.

I'll spend the rest of the week spilling the baby shower beans so stay tuned for details, tutorials and buckets of pretty pictures!

Thanks, in advance, for joining the party!



  1. It's all about the LOVE! Mama looks so cute! (and ready to deliver) :)

  2. Yay, can't wait to see more!! :)


Goodwill Finds: The Magnolia Wreath

Happy Friday, Islanders. I wanted to share a thrifty find from a while back.  Ugh, I love my local Goodwill Outlet.  Oh, and yes, you saw ...
