Vintage Pink Baby Shower

Hosted a baby shower at my house the other night.

Pulled out the vintage decor (with my sister's help)

Baby Shower Collection

Had pink tablecloths, china, deelish desserts...
and the hot spiced apple cider hit the spot on a cold November night.

One of my friends made the cookies and cupcakes...another friend, who co-hosted the party with me, picked up the macarons at Chantal Guillon, the most deelish macarons I've ever tasted.

My absolute favorite.
Love having an excuse to bring out the collection of vintage baby vases and decor.

How do you like my collection of vintage handmade doll clothes? These are some of my faves.

Check out our mom to be ...well, she's already a mom to three cute boys...this is her first baby girl.
Can you believe she will pop within the next couple of weeks?  

A success!

Ride for SMARD

I have two very athletic people living with me.
They go on bike rides several times a week...
Sometimes those bike rides start very early in the morning (6 am) when it is still dark.
Sometimes they clock over 100 miles in one week.

A couple of weeks ago the two of them went on a very special ride with about twenty others.
They rode their bikes over 40 miles 

This was a ride to raise $$ for this little guy who is afflicted with SMARD.
You might ask, what in the world is SMARD?
To be honest, I had never heard of it before myself.
Until my boss's grandson "Nate the Great" was diagnosed.
He is the sweetest little boy. 
 He even has his own blog.  Check him out here.
