This weekend was buuuuuusy! I attended a baby shower for a friend on Friday night which was really fun. It was super low key and after the gifts we just hung out and talked till like 11:30! Baby showers be gettin' crazy. ;)

On Saturday night I threw an engagement party for my bestie, Diana, and our roomie, Sam. That was the last surprise engagement party, Diana, I promise! Poor girl keeps getting thrown in the lime light! I say she better get used to it. ;)

I had SO. MUCH. HELP. from my amazing friends with the engagement party. There is NO way on earth I could have set up for that bash all on my own and I am just plain grateful for them. They showed up at two and were working their tails off till the party began and then some! Between the girls helping inside and the boys doing yard work outside, I am blessed by their servant hearts and I love that we had fun even though we were all working. You know you have good friends when they come over to mow your lawn and clean your house! ;)

So with that, here's the pics of all their hard work!

By the start of the party this table was loaded with sweets!

flowers by the ever so talented Lynnea Ruiz!

balloons by Candyce ;)

Luckily Daniel figured out the mylar ones for us!

It sure helped that I was able to use pretty much all the same decor as I did at the engagement party the previous weekend. You know what they say...never re-invent the wheel! Happy Monday, friends!


  1. Oh my gosh!! So cute. I love the doughnut rings - genius. All those balloons have me thinking I need to do something similar for Ellie's second birthday in May!!

  2. I stumbled upon your blog about a year ago, and I've been hooked ever sense. :) Monday through Friday you're the first thing I read. Your skill of writing just cracks me up and I enjoy following along the journey you and your family are on. The 3 of you are in my prayers for baby #2 and i just love the detail in everything you do....especially your entertaining ideas. I've been doing the same for my family for years and it's enjoyable to see a young lady take such pride in her home and family. Cheers to you! :)

    1. Thank you so much Sandy! Comments like yours just make my day. You are so sweet!
