T and I recently went to a gourmet food show in So Cal. We expected big things from it, but it was somewhat disappointing. There were only a small number of vendors and not too many items that could translate to party food or favors easily. There seemed to be an abnormally large amount of bbq sauces. The good part of the show was the samples. The bad part, all
In a previous post I mentioned my good friend, Eve. I marveled at her ability to effortlessly cater all of my parties and that she is one of the most creative people I know. What I failed to mention is that she does all this whilst being a terrific mom to five children. And in about a week that number goes up to six when she welcomes a baby girl.
I have a thing for wall decals. If you are a loyal reader, you will realize that I like a lot of things. Which means, that I like to spend my money and therefore don’t have any.

Today I bring you the baby bunch. If you’re
So its hot. Which, I guess, is why my mind keeps wandering to a nice cool drink by the pool. And I guess I should clarify something. I am not even really a drinker.

Looking for fruity mixed drinks to serve at your next baby shower? I found a great resource for you! This fun cookbook is full of non alcoholic mixed drink recipes perfect for moms-to-be. I’m not a real heavy drinker but I know that I missed ordering drinks when I was pregnant. You aren’t supposed to have too much caffeine, so goodbye coffee. Drinking is highly frowned upon.

I have said it before. I heart magazines. My favorite is Domino. I think, in part, because until we purchase our first home, I refuse to actually decorate our “temporary” space.
