Here are the highlights of the baby shower I gave for my sister-in-law, Sarah. It was held at an art gallery a couple of hours south of where I live. Jason and I made the centerpieces from branches in our front yard, I made the rest of the decorations and my mother and I made all of the desserts. See the details, below!
That particular weekend of the shower, we had two parties to attend and then the following weekend (last weekend), we had three parties! We've been so busy lately that we haven't been able to slow down and just enjoy the Halloween season as much as we did last year, which I hate. We found some of the old Vincent Price movies that we love on Netflix, so I'm sure we'll watch at least a couple this weekend.
I may try to take the day off tomorrow so I can focus on playing catch-up around the house so we just focus on doing fun Halloween things until Monday. Getting up at 3 or 4AM to work on Simply Handmade, then working all day at my non-profit job, then running errands, cooking dinner and enjoying quality time with the family (VERY important!) in the evenings doesn't leave too much time for some much-needed chores!
If you've found the secret for "doing it all", please let me know!
