Friends Baby Shower

This last Saturday I had my first baby shower with all my friends. Jodie was the wonderful host putting together cute invitations and bringing all the fantastic food. I had stayed up all night the Friday before worrying no one would show up, or the food or decorations wouldn't work out.. To my delight everything turned out incredibly, I couldn't have been happier :)
So I wanted to stick with the color theme of my little ones nursery which is black, white, & grey with pops of gold. Here is the little dessert table, I was so happy with the way it all turned out!
Of course the hanging poufs were my favorite although my poor cousin Brooke had to re hang them a million times because for some reason the dang things did not want to stay up!
The food Jodie put together was delicious as you can see below!
Like I said all my worries drifted away when all of my cute friends starting showing up, I felt very very loved. 
I was so grateful to get SO many cute gifts! (Thanks Blair for being my photographer :))
As a party favor I had made these chocolate mustaches. (Super easy fyi, you just melt chocolate into the candy mold & put the stick in wala!) 
I wanted to use them as a prop to photograph everyone who came. My nephew Hawkes was my first victim. 
I guess we shouldn't have let him keep the prop :)
Some ladies dragged their feet, but I got a mustache photo of almost everyone, so thanks for being a good sport friends. :) I have to say I have the prettiest friends in the world!
I love how all the babies are trying to lick or eat the mustache i their picture :)
So here is almost the whole group minus a few. (April, Brittany, Chanelle, Amanda, Annie & Mindi)
top row left to right: Brooke, Michelle, Jodie, Ashlee, Nicole, Blair, Kelsey, Brooklyn, & Mecall.
bottom row left to right: Meghan, Tiffanie, Laura, Me, Tiffannee, Morgan, Mandy & Amanda.

Thanks again to everyone who came out to my baby shower, it was so fun to see everyone & I had the best time! I felt so special that ladies even came all the way from provo, park city & ogden! You are the best. :) Especially thank you Meghan & Brooke for coming over the morning of and helping us set up, it was much appreciated!
And a huge huge thanks to Jodie for putting everything together, it turned out amazing I don't know what I would do with out you!
Much love!

Easter Eggs

I had seen lots of pretty painted easter eggs & really wanted to paint some myself this holiday.  I decided it's pointless to color hard boiled eggs though since nobody really wants to eat the egg inside & then you don't get to keep the egg you spent so much time making pretty! I would have preferred wooden eggs but didn't order them in time. So I convinced my mom & Meg they wanted to paint eggs too so we grabbed some paper mache eggs from Micheals. Here are my finished eggs :)
Here are some close ups. Mostly I just love all the pastel ones, but the neon ones are fun too.
For now their resting place is our mantle, but I hope to come up with a better way to display them next year.
I hope to paint some next year as well to the point where I have a lot of painted eggs. It would be fun to turn them into a wreath for the front door.
This last week was so much fun as my mom & youngest siblings were on spring break! The girls (my mom, Meg, Prez, cousin Alexa & I) went & took some fun classes at the gym including yoga, body jam, & zumba. We are considering getting a 3 month pass to go during the summer, so hopefully I can lose all my baby weight. We also headed down to city creek. I'm actually pretty jealous that Jeremy works right there & can walk over whenever he wants. Not that he will take advantage of that since he hates shopping. Anyways my fam headed to Vegas & I was so sad Jeremy & I didn't join. Especially when Jeremy made me sit thru 3 1/2 hours of Titanic in 3D! Are you kidding me?? It was torture, but for some reason Jeremy felt like he had missed out not seeing it on the big screen since he was gone on his mission. What a crazy person he is.
Luckily our Easter sunday was lovely as we went to church & then headed over to Earl & Sandy's for a delicious Ham & potatoes meal. We even had strawberry shortcake for dessert, yum! We also watched the Masters, which I have to say was actually highly entertaining. Since the weather was nice we even took a motorcycle ride around Farmington. Don't worry it was just a slow scenic ride, but it was really fun to see everyone outside celebrating Easter. Well I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday, I'm excited for it to be in the high 70's this week!
Sorry for so many pictures of my eggs, I'm just so proud :)

easter hunt

Last week I got to take Hawkes to a little Easter Egg hunt in my moms neighborhood.
Meg let me dress him & everything :)
It was so funny that he knew exactly what to do!
Of course he didn't want to eat the candy or anything, he just liked playing with the eggs.
Such a happy little guy, he just loves being outside.
In the end he just wanted to walk around swinging his basket :)
Too cute! Can't wait to take my own little one to things like this.
How about the creepiest Easter Bunny ever!!??
