Typography..A Gift

Am I the only person who just got on the Downton Abbey bandwagon? I can't believe I have been missing this show. It took about two episodes and I was hooked and now I am in the second season and can't wait to get my hands on the third. Good stuff!

I wanted to share a sweet gift my cousin brought me when they came to attend my daughters baby shower. She started a RAK (random act of kindness) at the first of the year and I was one of her recipients when they came to visit. I have a love for typography so this gift was so special to me. I am always humbled when I receive and unexpected gift from someone, but this brought tears to my eyes. 

Such a sweet thing to do for me and I will cherish it always! I love ya girl!

The weather is so gorgeous here this week, spring is in the air!
Have a beautiful weekend!

Shower of Love

Hello friends.
Hope you enjoyed your weekend. We spent ours moving our daughter and her hubby to a new apartment before that baby arrives. We got them all settled in and set up (decorated). Now we wait!

I wanted to share some pictures from the shower I gave at our home a few weeks ago.
Wanted to do something that didn't involve a theme so I went with colors that made me happy. 
Here's what I ended up with..

Before the food..

Napkins are from Target
I found the "C" stickers in the dollar bin and wrapped them with leftover scrapbook paper

Fresh flowers from Trader Joes

I made the cupcakes and found the picks at Hobby Lobby

My first attempt at the diaper cake..It was so fun!

My sweet girl (mommy to be)

and her hubby

We had grape salad, chicken salad sandwiches, macaroni salad, fresh strawberries, chips and spinach dip. Cupcakes and chocolate covered pretzel rods filled us up also.

She received so many cute things from friends and family and we enjoyed showering her with love.
We now look forward to his arrival in about 5 weeks! Our first grandbaby and this "Honey" can't wait!!

Have a blessed week my friends!!
