Today I am going to show you some pictures taken by my friend Heather of a shower I threw for our friend Erin (who just so happens to be Heather’s sister-in-law). It was a great day! When these pictures went up on facebook a while back, our friend Erica commented that we had made a lot of changes to our house since she’d been there. I realized I hadn’t blogged most of those, so I’ll insert that commentary as we go along, too.
(Notice the kitchen walls are now blue.
I also feel compelled to tell you that I have chopped off my hair since this photo was taken)
Please have a seat alongside the guest of honor (in black) and play our baby word game.
(New white leather couch was a find on craigslist. New gray area rug was a bargain at Ollie’s
right before I hosted the house concert
and decided that the five dollar yard sale rug wasn’t going to cut it anymore. There is a photo collage on the wall under the stairs.)
Quick, look at the cute banner because if you touch it, it will fall apart.
(New wall color in main living area/entryway/everywhere — Sherwin Williams Oyster Bay. I love this color and never want to live without it. However I am too cheap to buy SW paint so I took the swatch to Walmart and they matched it for me.)
Owl cake pops and pink lemonade.
I promise she wanted to eat the strawberry. I did not make her.
An update since this event…Erin gave birth to Haddon Abraham on May 18th. Happy one month, little man!
