Babies on the brain!

Not only can I think of little other than pregnancy, childbirth, and babies because of my own TTC journey, but I have many friends and family members who are expecting and delivering.  As I mentioned in my last post, I recently returned from a long trip to So Cal.  During that time, I was lucky enough to celebrate these amazing pregnant women through throwing both my best bud and cousin showers!

Here are some pics from the parties:

Favors for Emily's shower:  Salt water taffy in 4oz jars tied with ribbon

Coconut Lime cupcakes yum!!! 

tea sandwiches with a quinoa salad

Casey's mom brought some amazing cupcakes!!

Casey's favors-  I love the colors, they're so Casey!

baking buns  :)
I have to finish with the latest news!  Emily (above on left) gave birth yesterday to twins: Keegan and Emma!  Both healthy but early  :)  They were just too excited to meet their family!

Home Sweet Home

We are finally home after a wonderful trip down to Southern California.  It was so great to see so many of my family and friends.  Although I'll be missing them, I am so happy to be back home and in my more northern climate.  I just can't handle that heat anymore!

Here are some snapshots from the trip:

It was a great end to summer.  We're officially ready for fall!

Our favorite book lately:  A Cat and a Dog (bilingual)
