BABY ON BOARD

My little grandson is due in just a few weeks so Saturday I helped my daughter host a baby shower for son and DIL.     We got up bright and early Saturday morning and drove to Birmingham with the car loaded down with what we hoped was everything we’d need.      Shannon had ordered the cake here in Montgomery at Publix and we picked it up at the Publix in Birmingham near my son’s house.      I had purchased one of those neat drink dispensers for the lemonade but it sprung a leak.    Fortunately, that was the only “fly in the ointment”  so we had to serve drinks from a plain ol’ pitcher.     Other than that, everything went pretty good.

I took some quick pictures of the table after we got it set up.    Nothing fancy, we just had a very simple menu.

There were three sweet little ladies at the shower.    My two granddaughters, Taylor and McKinley, and a little friend of McKinley’s who is the daughter of Jennifer’s best friend from high school.    Another friend from McKinley’s school came in later with her mom.

They played dress up by putting on different princess outfits.    For some reason, Taylor didn’t get in on the first dress up go-round – she’s wearing the dress I had made for her last fall for Little Miss Christmas On the Coosa.

Love this frame Shannon had made for the baby.     A  good friend of Shannon’s makes these frames and sells them on line.    She has a link on her Facebook page so if anyone local is interested in seeing more of her work, let me know and I’ll give you the link.    By the way, these are the colors we’ll be using in the nursery.      We’ll also be incorporating beadboard wallpaper!

Here’s our little baby’s first official “photo.”   I can’t wait to meet him!

One of Jennifer’s friends made the darling diaper “cake”

Since I’ve been having so much going on lately, I decided to treat myself to a little pampering this week.      I remembered that I had not used two of the spa treatments in the spa package Shannon gave me a few months ago.     I had to schedule both treatments this week as the package expires on July 31st.    So here’s what you’ll find me doing….

Tuesday – body glow treatment (not exactly sure what this is)

Wednesday – manicure

Thursday – hair appointment (not part of the spa treatment but a necessity – gotta keep those gray hairs under control!)

Friday – hubby and I going to the gulf coast for a couple of days for a little get-a-way!

Hope everyone has a great week and do something special for yourself!

I love the frame, and I'd love the link to her store!

Enjoy your getaway -- I had family there over the weekend (well, in PCB) and they said they saw no oil. You'll have to let me know if there's any where you go!

Looks like it was a great celebration. Nothing better than celebrating a new baby in my book. I was wondering if you would be interested in being a guest on my blog? Every Tuesday is a new blog, and I would to have you share a tutorial. Let me know if it is something you might be interested in.
