The Hungry Caterpillar Baby Shower

This weekend I had a really special time. Several close friends and family came for my baby shower.  I have a dear friend who is extremely talented and crafty. She threw the cutest "The Hungry Caterpillar" themed baby shower. I cannot think of a more perfect theme for a food blogger. 

I didn't get nearly as many photos as I would have liked but I have some of the highlights. We had a caterpillar cupcake dessert. 

The favors were cute, colorful lollipops. They reminded me of being a little kid. 

We had caterpillars everywhere...along with balloons but you will see those in a minute.

My favorite part was the diaper cake. I am obsessed with these. I am not crafty and I am just amazed by the diaper cakes and how they are put together. I want to keep it like this forever. 

We were very lucky receive homemade gifts. Again I am not craft so anything quilted or knitted blows my mind away.

We also got the cutest little outfits. See all of the onesies in the back? Some very clever people thought of moose outfits to remind us of Maine.   Our living room is now full of gifts. We have everything we need to welcome our little girl.  Of course she needs to stay nestled for a few weeks longer. I am so blessed to have such wonderful people in my life.

Hump Day and WIAW

I am so happy that it is Wednesday. I am already for the weekend even though we might get a storm on Saturday. I guess I would rather have a storm on the weekend then have to deal with it on a work day. I see the couch, movies and PJs in my future.

I decided to switch up breakfast this week since we had some good bread on hand.  Hello Nutella!  One piece had Nutella. One piece had raspberry jam.  Topped with banana to make it a healthy breakfast. 

Lunch was leftover mac and cheese. I didn't pack nearly enough!!

Thank goodness for snack though. I had fruit, granola, hummus and crackers and veggies all day long.   Somehow the hummus container is almost gone?!?!

Dinner was also leftovers. My mom made us some French toast souffle this past weekend. I topped it with maple syrup and fruit. When I got done I felt like I had just finished dessert instead of dinner. Cannot say that I mind much?

Are you excited for the weekend? What did you eat Wednesday?

Nursery Inspiration

We are getting closer and closer to the due date and the nursery is finally coming together. We put the crib together and finished installing the shelving in the closet this past weekend. The last major piece is the changing table. I am getting prepared for washing all of the sheets, clothes and blankets we will need for the first couple of weeks.  

Before we knew it was going to be a boy or a girl I knew I wanted a pretty neutral nursery. Once we found out it was a girl the room became a bit more feminine but still not too pink.  As we finish up our project I thought I would share some of my inspiration photos.
