Much Ado About Monday {No. 24}

Happy Sunday Everyone!

I don't know about you but I had a CRAZY busy weekend! On Friday, we celebrated my daughter's 4th birthday by having a mermaid themed birthday party at our house. We decided to have her party a few weeks early in case baby #3 (due at the end of September) arrived a little early {NOT a trait that he/she will share with me}. I planned on having a nice, small, simple party but apparently I just cannot help myself when it comes to planning parties. I swear, it's a sickness. I see glitter card stock and everything goes black and the next thing you know I've walked out of a  JoAnn's with five bags full of craft items and 32 projects to complete. I need an intervention. But the work is always a labor of love and my daughter was so appreciative and awestruck by her definitely worth it. :)

On Sunday, I drove to Austin for one of my best friend's baby shower that I helped co-host. The shower was so cute with a You Are My Sunshine theme and super delicious Italian food. Pasta and cheese? Always a yes with this pregnant mama. So all in all, a very packed but oh-so-fun weekend.

I hope everyone else had a fantastic weekend as well! I know one person whose weekend got a little bit better..Tiffany Drew!! Congratulations!! You are the winner of our Karissa's Creations giveaway!
