You have until midnight May 13th to enter.  
Winner will be randomly selected.

I'm so happy to have met some of the nicest people ever in blogland.  I don't always have time to visit you as much as I'd like, but it's been so much fun surfing through your blog.  Thanks for your friendship!
Giveaway will be Friday May 14th.

Pink Saturday @How Sweet the Sound (Hope the pink flowers on the gift card count as a pink post!)
Show n Tell Friday @My Romantic Home
Inspiration Saturday @The Inspired Room


And for my regular posting...

Happy Birthday Colton!

 
This is a baby shower some friends and I threw for a dear sweet friend.  The baby is soon to have his first birthday.  How time flies!  

We printed these monogram water bottle labels right on the printer.  Then tied ribbon around the bottles and placed them in an iced down baby tub to add a little personal touch.  





A place to leave well wishes.






My favorite- toile anything, here toile napkins....



The honoree's sister made little "poop diapers."  Styrofoam cups, napkins, safety pin and caramel popcorn.  



A baby carriage fruit bowl...



The table centerpieces-




  A parting treat for the guests.  Honey buns in little white bags. 


 The Birthday Boy! I love him!!!

This baby shower was spectacular! I never have been creative enough to come up with things like that. The cake itself was worth attending just to see.

I have only recently found you through Marla's Woo Hoo Wednesday and I'll not enter your drawing this time but it sounds great and I'll be checking back to congratulate the winner.

Shame on me, I thought I was already a "follower". Well, I am now. Isn't it fun to go to your blog and find new "friends"?

I'd love to post a link to your giveaway but I don't know how. If you can tutor me, I'd be happy to do so.

And, I must comment on your adorable, college-bound redhead. Even three hours away seems too far but, somehow, moms survive.

Best,
Bonnie
