So They Say it's Spring...

Two things, right off the bat.  1.) I completely warned you about these ankle boots (equal parts comfy & stylish) & 2.) Happy first day of spring, although it definitely doesn't feel like it over here.  I mean, it's sunny & everything, but we still have a few patches of snow in the backyard.  Needless to say, I'm not fully convinced on Mother Nature's intentions.  I fell trap to the whole 'florals for spring? groundbreaking!' motto, but was forced to layer up & cover my toes.

Photo Friday: A Woodland Animal Themed Baby Shower

Today I'm sharing a few photos (lol, there's a lot) from my sister-in-law's baby shower.  Kinda goes with the whole sharing of what I wore yesterday, right? Any way, this shower was super fun to plan out.  I went with the whole woodland animal theme, but added a lot of moss, candles, & baby's breath for a girly touch (the shower is for the mama-to-be after all).  I really loved how well it turned out! Check out the photos & let me know what you think...

Finally got to use my new letter board (via Target) & I LOVE it! Welcome Forrest Friends!
Take-home gifts were milk cartons filled with trail mix (milk cartons via Michael's).
Table #1 centerpiece.  I used books & stuffy's that could be used for nursery decor as well :)
I ordered these tree round cake stands & pine cone mix on Hobbylobby.com. I loved how they looked over burlap!
Table #2 centerpiece, hedgehog style! Hedgehog stuffy from Hobby Lobby, book from Homesense Canada.  
My mama has become a diaper cake pro! We loved how well this cake turned out (fox toy via Target).
These mini trees were scored on eBay & actually used for the mama-to-be's bachelorette party as well :)
Loved the idea of using this nursery decor item as decor for the shower (string art via eBay).
The fireplace was my absolute favorite :)
The larger moss banner I worked long & hard on...I'm so happy it turned out as well as it did!
A little impromptu photo booth using these masks, it was a lot of fun (masks via Hobby Lobby) :)
Mini croissants & homemade chicken salad (we used cupcake toppers for an added touch of decor).
Mini bowls of 'forrest berries' 
A last minute moss banner with 'grub' hung above the cake :)
Burlap, ribbon, & animal stickers on mini water bottles (ribbon & stickers: hobby lobby)
Found these socks on F21 & couldn't resist! We gave a pair out for game winning prizes as well :)
Squirrel & Hedgehog socks for the grandmas, mom-to-be, & moi :)
My mom saved the button from the gender reveal to include on the present...she's too cute!

Happy Weekend :)

Woodsy Vibes

I was recently home for a few days at the beginning of the month, primarily to co-hostess my sister-in-law's baby shower.  They decided on a woodland animal themed nursery, so my mom & I decided to carry it over as the theme for the shower as well.  I tossed this outfit into my suitcase for just the occasion.  The earthy tone combination was perfect, with a touch of lace & a pair of sparkly earrings for a girly vibe.  I was comfortable, yet not underdressed by any means...totally necessary when hosting a group of ladies & chasing after Sadie.

V&B Combo #2

Vest & Boot combo #2.  This totally was not done as a theme, but more of a coincidence really. I decided to skip the usual Photo Friday post this week, mostly because I have only blogged once the entire week & still have to sort through photos (so many photos).  This outfit was something I tossed on for a playgroup one week, such easy & versatile pieces that sorta just fell together.  I bought this vest (on mega clearance btw) when we found out Zoey was a girl.  In fact, I kinda went pink crazy! The best advice I got while pregnant was to not splurge on maternity clothes, but to find things you would normally wear or layer...I’m so happy I took that advice! Now I have a wardrobe filled with sentiments (like this vest) & of course, clothing I still love to wear...
