baby shower :: cosette's

My amazing friends and family threw me a shower for Cosette about a month before I had her. I have been meaning to post these pictures, and am finally getting around to doing so. We had a fairly large group of ladies, so they got a private room at Lucille's BBQ. My friends made a darling BBQ invite that I will post tomorrow. They also decorated the tables with my favorite flower, peonies, and the cutest party favor. It was very low key, but such a fun time. I am so lucky to have such amazing friends and family surrounding me.

Some friends and I are hosting another baby shower next week for a dear friend. These are the shower invitations that I made for the event. We are going with a sort of vintage/classic baby theme, with vintage blocks etc. I will let you know how it all turns out.

good eats :: smore's cups

A few days ago on Pinterest, I came across this recipe for Smore's Cups. If you remember this post I did about Smore's cookie bars, then you already know my love of anything with the word "Smore's" in it. I have yet to test out this recipe, but they sound amazing and they are so visually appealing as well.

fun find :: classics at costco

Today on my weekly Costco outing, I stumbled upon these children's books.
I got a set of them from Anthropologie last year where they are $16.99, but you can get yours at the local Costco for only $10.49 each.
So RUN don't WALK.

DIY :: block print

I am sure a lot of you out in the blogging world have already seen this DIY on design sponge, but I just had to share.
I love the uneven appearance of the pattern you get by using the block stamp.
Check out the full tutorial over at design sponge here. I can't wait to try this out with my own design.
