Shower Survivor

Mission accomplished the baby shower went off completely smooth...except for the fact that I got so busy that I did not get to go around and take pictures before everyone arrived. I did have one of the guests send me what she took. I did a baby book shower theme, which turned out great. Everyone brought one of there favorite children's books and then I had everyone sign a copy of "Guess How Much I Love" instead of doing advice cards. I will most definitely be doing this theme again.

And I really meant to take a picture of the corsage (from the post below) just to show y'all. I took everyone's advice and ended up going through with the plan. I just attached two pacis to one of those $2 bows that all you do is pull the string and it turns into a super big bow and then added a safety pin to the back. Super cheap, super easy!

My mother-in-law is the cupcake and cookie guru. She still doesn't believe me when I tell her she needs to start a bakery and hire me as the chief cupcake tester. Adding ribbon to fondant cookies is genius I tell you!

Cookie bouquet used as a centerpiece

Sorry the food picture is so small.

and a cookie for the road

Okay no more baby shower talk. I'll be back with Bachelorette talk later.

And I want to be the cupcake tester. I'll thumb wrestle you for it!

Glad all went well . . .
