A Shower for Baby Hazel

I'm all about parties this summer. This past weekend, it was for Cathy and Baby Hazel. We went with a literal "shower"/picnic theme to complement Cathy's gray, pink, & turquoise nursery.

Check out our yummy picnic spread!

It turned out really cute! Thanks to Stephanie, I didn't have to climb up onto my parents' dining room table in all my 8-month-belly glory to hang up the decorations.

I also set up a craft table for the guests to make something for Cathy. I used the same hair clip materials that I had used earlier this summer for Pia's shower, and also set up a onesie-making station (no pictures of the completed projects, but they turned out really cute).

Serious Soccer Business

Sophie is one lean, mean, soccer ball playin' machine.

With her white jersey made to fit an 8-10-year-old tied in a knot behind her back, her oversized black shorts pinned at the waist and then rolled up a few inches, and her pink velcro shoes on, she's all business.

Don't mess.

Don't mess with this guy either.
Cause he's cute.

Fall, Please

This summer seemed especially unbearable. Did anyone else feel this way? I don't know if it was because of this belly:

Or the record breaking heat we've been experiencing. Probably a combination of both.

But I am sure ready for it to be over.

I just went out to get the mail and felt my body go tense as I stepped out into the sunlight, just waiting for that 100+ degree heat to hit me, and was pleasantly surprised to find it's only 90 degrees right now. Very tolerable when it was 25 degrees hotter than that just a short time ago.

Fall weather, please. (pretty please?)

Our Walking Advertisement

Sam should be getting paid by Disney for the amount of Cars promotion he does. It just makes him so ridiculously happy that I can't help it though. When we open his door in the morning, the first thing we hear from him is "Cah Shoooooooo?" (Cars shoes).

We're expecting our check any time.
