Bumblebee Baby Shower...DONE!

The bumblebee baby shower was today and I think it turned out pretty well.  It was a potluck shower, so there was a ton of yummy food, the cake was delish, and the decorations added the festive touch.  I hope mom to "bee" liked it as much as I did planning it!

The clothing line turned out SO much cuter than I had imagined.  I was especially excited to see
that Burt's Bee's has a clothing line, and so much of it had bees on it.  Perfect for a gender
neutral theme, wouldn't you say?

Fresh flowers, and the cutest balloon I found at the grocery store.  Actually, I had found three and
used them all through out the party area.

I love love love making diaper cakes.  The mom to be loves purple so I incorporated it in.  I even
had a friend crochet a pair of purple booties and a darling little hat (forgot to get a photo) that I attached to the back.  
The beehive cake was made by a local lady and the little cupcakes were actually
bundt cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes.  Everything was scrumptious and sadly 
there weren't any leftovers to have with my coffee tomorrow ;)

Last but not least, a close up of the bundt cakes and these so perfectly tiny and adorable
candy bees that I had found while wandering a grocery store aisle during a grocery trip.  It was
like they were there just for me.  They were a HUGE hit.  I think they were by Wilton?

So that's it.  Baby Shower #1 is done.
Next weekend, baby shower #2!
It's a nautical theme and I love the big bold colors.

Bumblebee Baby Shower

I'm hosting a baby shower this weekend and the theme is bumblebees.  Mom to be doesn't know the gender of the baby, so we're keeping it fairly neutral other than the pops of lilac throughout since purple is the mom's favorite color.  Right now I'm struggling with placement of the decorations, but the clothing line on my fireplace is my favorite.  I think we'll put the gifts on the hearth underneath it.  It's crazy how much there is still left to do and how little time.

Went walking...again!

This is almost becoming a habit ;)

1 hr 8 minutes
4.28 miles

Upped my pace from last week, and squeezed in an extra mile.  LOVE it!

Last week I walked twice, both times right at about 3 miles.  It felt AMAZING!
Despite the very long pause in my workouts, I wasn't sore, but rather energized.  I wanted to keep going, but knew an hour was about all I could do each day.  Fast forward to this week.
Trying to get motivated, but the threat of rain looms (YAY!!!!) and my motivation is non existent.
This couch is just too darn comfortable...
