I don’t want to jinx anything, but I have been feeling much better about things in my life. After losing James and Jake, my old friend used to email me and say “keep on keepin’ on.”
And that’s what I did. And that’s what I’m doing now. And for THIS MOMENT? I feel better.
This weekend was such a whirlwind filled with so much activity. Honestly, when I saw I was nominated Friday night for Best Eye Candy blog, it made my night. The fact that someone would ever think of my blog and take the time to nominate me is positively mind blowing and it really does means so much to me. AND THEN, over 100 hundred of you have gone over and voted making me in the top five? (as of right now.) Oh, I feel so lucky and really loved and appreciated, so thank you.

Anyway. On Saturday night, Steph, Erin, Sarah and Arianne and I threw a SURPRISE! Baby Shower for Crooked Eyebrow at my house. She just found out last week that she was having a girl and this is just so exciting since she has a boy already and well, we pretty much wanted it to be a totally pink shower. And it was.
Erin was in charge of picking up desserts. If you ever throw a party, make sure Erin is in charge of desserts because hello? Look.
Everyone pitched in, not only was it a fun little shower, but it really was fun to plan. It helps when you are working with people who want to help and make it extra special. We needed to do this on a budget and we did really well. Many of the attendees brought a dish, which certainly helped with the cost.
I did not do a very good job of taking photos, I mean, I took a lot of shots of decor and of cupcakes, but not so many of people which was really dumb because, well, it’s dumb.
Here’s CE when she first walked through the door.
We told her about 139 lies about our little get together.
Lying is fun.
You know, when you are doing it for a good cause.
I mean, seriously. Could there be a better cause?
No. The answer is no.
(p.s. pictures of my painted/redecorated office are coming very, very soon. Maybe even as soon as Monday. K?)
