Baby Shower Fun, Time to Chill

Thanks, friends! I needed some sympathy Friday! haha I know things will slow down, when it rains it pours, this too shall pass, feast or famine, etc. BUT I needed to vent and want to thank you for letting me! Friday ended up being a pretty chill day. I did work a lot, but I also took a great lunch with Stacy at our favorite spot, Uncle Julio's, we shared the fajitas as per usual - SO GOOD. Then I worked more, headed home, did more shower stuff, then left around 9 p.m. to go over to Lincoln & Shana to see Austin's buddy Brian who was in town for his birthday! We had a few drinks with them and enjoyed catching up with them - and of course great to see Brian! Then we headed home and stayed up too late on accident just chilling and watching TV - oops! Still a great, relaxing night even if I didn't get a whole lots of sleep!

Yesterday I spent the day preparing for the baby shower for my sis and bro-in-law! It was at our house last night and I was so excited to see everything come together and thrilled at the turnout that they had! They have such wonderful friends and got the CUTEST stuff. Here are a few pics of some of the decor I took before the shower - I'll post more shots from the shower tomorrow!

My co-worker Brittany's cupcake business made 4 dozen mini cupcakes ! We made the flags - so fun!
Devon and Zach loaned us a bunch of Dane's toys and books to decorate with!
Baby Dane's shoes- love them!
We hung his bibs on the tables and around the casa!
Loved this pic of pregnant Dev!
Hung pics by ribbon on the mantle and under the cabinets
Made signs for the food - so fun!
Rolling napkins = not fun, but I love the look!
Favors inspired by fellow blogger, Samma at Spice and Sass - she made these for her friend's shower - I love the look and heard the 'candy popcorn' was yummy!
Q: What did you do last night?! Anything fun? I'm sorely behind on blog reading - but I have ALL day today to chill, blog, work out, read, etc. - can't wait!

I went to a hockey game, watched Dexter, and the movie splice- which was reallly weird.

The baby shower looks awesome!

I cannot wait to see pics! My sister's shower is in a few weeks. I'm excited, BUT I'm not happy how she and her MIL are handling things. Basically, it's looking like it's going to be a $1000 baby shower by the time it's over. NOT COOL.
