Hi there! It has been awhile, we’ve had a lot going on here!
First of all, my cousin Tami, who came to visit very pregnant for Thanksgiving, had her adorable little girl on February 4th. Her name is Chloe Grace and she is sooo cute! We are going to the Dominican Republic over Memorial Day weekend and I will get to meet her then!
Then we got a Valentine’s Day present when my sister-in-law had her baby girl at 12:05am on February 14th. Her name is Gianna Carla and she is also adorable. Here I am holding her for the first time!
So excited to get to be an Auntie to these two baby girls. I’m happy to do some babysitting as long as I’ve had 9 hours of sleep myself : ) I also found this great website called Savvy Auntie, for cool aunts, so I obviously had to join.
This past weekend we headed out to Seattle for what else, but a baby shower and a wedding!
My friend Alicia and I hosted a shower for one of our best friend’s, Lorena, on Thursday night, and had such a great time. She is due in May but you can barely tell she is pregnant in the picture… so tiny! She is also having a little girl, it is girl’s galore these days and I like it.
Of course Alicia and I had fun making competing onesies, lol…
And we made sure there was plenty of wine! Because that, people, is what makes a good baby shower.
Friday we had a fun night out with friends…
Saturday morning I survived a workout at our old Crossfit gym… I miss my coach!!
After all that, wedding time! Now dressing for a winter wedding is harder than I thought it would be. I ordered about 20 dresses from Nordstrom and nothing worked. So I decided to get the same maxi dress I wore for a spring wedding back in May, just in black this time. I wore it with my new black and white Michael Kors shoes, and to stay warm outside, I added a little faux fur collar shrug I borrowed from my MIL, along with elbow length leather gloves.
And what a beautiful wedding it was, how gorgeous is this couple?! Congrats to Danny and Julie! They are currently sunning themselves in St. Lucia and I am very jealous…
