The Mermaid Bakery in downtown Denver and made us some peanut butter and salted caramel cupcakes and they were TO DIE FOR. If you're in the area you have to go try her goodies, she's kind of a wizard). I definitely felt the love...and the sugar rush. Thanks for such a fun party sistas!!

And I am just ecstatic, mostly because I was pretty convinced that it was a boy and hello, I APPARENTLY HAVE NO MATERNAL INSTINCT!!! Browsing through all of the teensy tiny girl dresses and jeggings...you guys, I die. I die of cuteness every time.
The Fam is all headed over to Colorado for Christmas and my sisters decided to throw me a baby shower while I was down there. In true cheapskate fashion (I like to call it DIY because hello, sounds so much trendier and hip) I decided to make my own invitations. They were so fun to paint and I'm planning on using the artwork in the nursery somehow to give it a personal touch. Perhaps when we come up with a name I'll paint her name in the center of the wreath?!
Also. Name my unborn child. No seriously. Sir Matt and I are having no success. Every name I love he hates and every name he loves I loathe. It's really kind of the worst. At this point I'm hoping that once he sees all of the misery I have to go through during birth he'll just let me name her whatever the heck I want.
Or ya know you could just solve the dilemma and help us. Oh pretty please won't you???

Nesting has hit.me.hard. you guys. All I can think about is what needs to be done to the nursery, and what we need to have before the baby comes. Basically if I'm not at work/sleeping I'm coming up with some kind of project for the bebe. This is one of my favorites so far, I've always wanted to have a baby blanket that was made by me for each of our kids and so I suppose this is the beginning of a new tradition! Here's how you can make your own.
2 yards of microfleece
something to mark with
