What I’ve Been Up To {Part 1}

Sorry for the lack of posts lately. It has been such a busy time {as this time of year is for so many} for me and my family. So many wonderful things happening all at once, it seems! It feels great to be back in the blogging saddle, so to speak. :)

Here is a peek of what I’ve been up to these last couple weeks-

I held a baby shower for my sister-in-law at my house.

Our friend, Hannah, is an amazing baker. She made these lemon cupcakes with buttercream frosting for the shower, topped off with Baby Jude’s monogram (letters handmade out of chocolate). Oohhh my gosh- they were to DIE FOR!!


We had LOTS of yummy food!

The hostesses
I made the moss wreath for the front door with Jude’s initials. I wanted a baby wreath that wasn’t babyish. :)
A week and a half after the baby shower, the guest of honor himself made his grand debut! :)
Meet my first nephew, Jude Nathaniel.
Born 3 weeks early, Jude spent some time in the NICU to make sure his breathing was strong enough.  He is a fighter and got to come home soon after!
Rock star mama :). She did a great job during labor and the whole time Jude was in the NICU.
My brother and I with Jude. So hard to believe that my little brother is a father! He will be an amazing dad.
I will post more pictures about what I have been up to these past couple weeks. Have a great night!
