Baby Shower Recap

So if you’ll recall, two weeks ago my best friend had a baby.  Happy two week birthday Clara!

DSC00987Get out of town, yall are too cute.

So I figured it was about time to post some of the highlights from her baby shower.  You see I’m not as terrible of a blogger as it seems, because sweet little Clara did come earlier than we expected – I think Clara had her own agenda.

205312235308_0_ALBDe and her Mom actually made this, can you believe it?  It’s amazing. I thought I was pretty accomplished in the gorgeous cake baking arena, but they have totally raised the bar now. I haven’t played around with fondant or gum paste, but this stunner makes me want to take a cake decorating class.  When I would find time to do that I have no idea, but it’s going on the life list.

and my favorite…

Me with Steph, the lovely Mom-to-be

132852235308_0_ALBIt was so great to get together with some of my dearest friends from high school.  We live all over the place these days, and we only get to spend time together if someone is getting married or having a baby.  Unfortunately no one is engaged or expecting right now, so it might be a while before I get to see these beauties again.  Love yall!  Miss the gals who couldn’t make it!  And also I desperately need to hang something over my fireplace.  Yikes.
