Our Weekend

This weekend was really busy, but really fun too!

Here is the first of the spoils from our garden...not everything, just the lettuce! Super yummy! We should have some tomatoes soon though.
We finally had summery weather around these parts for a change! This is what the kids spent all day saturday doing...

...and ate A LOT of these too...
...and pretty much had the!
Here is what Garrett did all day saturday: window trim. We also finished the beadboard in the bathroom, the beadboard backsplash in the kitchen and hung some cabinet doors. We also did a few other little projects that needed to get done. It was a very productive weekend on the home front!
And this is what I did on saturday...something these girls and I have been working on for about a month. And it turned out amazing!
Me, Alea, Amber (the mom-to be), Amanda (who is also having a boy in Sept.), Wendy, and Becky.
Here is Amber with her onesie banner. I love making these. Becky made the diaper cake on the mantel. We used an authentic horse rope (not sure the technical term for it) and we had cowboy hats on each end.
We had trailmix and twizzlers and thank you favors. Wendy made the most adorable "thanks for a rootin' tootin' good time" jars filled with cowboy shaped candies and I made the baby soap.
Sunflowers and Mason blocks. The baby's name is going to be mason. These were on the food table. Wendy made the cupcakes too.
Here is our invitation...I totally stole some of the ideas but it turned out too cute!
The spread...we had cowboy caviar, veggies, 'lil smokies in bbq sauce, cilantro dip and fruit kabobs. We had lemonade and water. And of course lots and lots of bandanas for the decorations.

This was the first thing you saw when you walked in the house.

And here is the outside decor! It was so much fun! And we had an amazing turnout too. Can't wait to see this little baby!

Looks like you guys had a great and fun day outside even if it meant doing projects. I can't wait to see the finished product. This shower was so fun and to do it with the best girlfriends was perfect.
