if you would have told me five years ago that i would be homesick for olympia i would have said no way, no how. but alas, it is true. i had a GREAT weekend there. and i am already homesick.
we threw a baby shower for annie. it was so much fun and to toot my own horn- we did a great great job! we ran around like crazy, but it was so worth it.
from the yummy menu-
tomato basil soup
mini grilled gruyere and smoked cheddar cheese sammys with prosciotto and chorizo. drool.
to the decor- a little flag banner that i made with scrapbook paper and twine that could not have turned out any cuter. to annies baby clothes hanging from clothes pins. to these amazing yellow flower poofs i found at the party store. so. cute.
to the dessert- um, cute sprinkled pink donuts on a cute cakestand? with jars of colorful candy all over. with the cutest table cloth of all time. so. cute.
to the guest of honor- annie is glowing and couldnt have been a cuter or more gracious momma. love. her.
here are some "hip" pics:clockwise: 1. mini grilled cheeses, piled high. with yummy fig and strawberry jams to make them even yummy-er. and adding cute little signs to things took me like 10 extra minutes and made it just so much cuter. 2. the dessert area. mad hatter tea party-esque. 3. annie's boots from when she was a little nugget. 4. the stupid diaper cake my mom and i made that i lugged up to washington. not my finest decision, but kind of worth it.
and then to top off a beautiful day- why NOT have a wig party and drink a tad too much with your favorite people? why not?
great great weekend.
