it’s a Baby Dane Baby Shower

it’s a Baby Dane Baby Shower

I cant believe how fast little Mrs. Abbie Jensen’s baby shower came, it seems like just yesterday she was telling me she was prego with that little video of the heartbeat! Can’t believe it’s just 5 short weeks until we get to meet this little guy! Today we celebrated his arrival with a little prenatal yoga shower for momma and baby.

Since we started the afternoon off with yoga we wanted to keep lunch light so we opted for a menu of tea sandwiches, smoothies, and desserts of course!

This is my moms famous (I call it famous because its the only chicken salad ill eat) Cashew Chicken Salad sandwiches. Abbie and I always joke that I only like cute food. Which is true I would sacrifice taste over cute any day! So thank God my mother is an amazing cook and always pulls through with making sure everything tastes amazing! I love that lady!

Being prego myself I have been craving BLTs and tomatoes like whoa, and lets be honest who doesn’t love a great BLT?! Having to make these in advance we were a little worried about the whole toast not getting soggy thing. That’s when Ma broke out the brilliant idea for these BLT poppers! They were banging, just like a BLT, minus those pesky toast calories, and for an added bonus…they’re cute!

Lastly we had a more traditional tea sandwich with cucumber, carrots, mint, and ginger. These offered a lighter option which is always nice!

It was so fun to see all of these lovely ladies and catch up. It’s funny how much harder it gets to make time to get together as we get older but days like these make you remember why we all became friends to start with!

Lets not forget dessert!! Not being any sort of baker I’ve finally figured it out…get it catered! Done and done!! I could not of asked for better desserts! Hilary over at Rue de Lis Desserts did an amazing job! Not only did everything look great but they tasted amazing! Thankfully everything got eaten or I would officially put this baby in a sugar comma!

I love these 2 ladies and was so glad we were able to celebrate little Dane! Overall it was a great afternoon filled some amazing women. Thank you to everyone for coming and a HUGE thanks to Andrea and my mom for all of their help, ideas, talents and laughs while we pulled this day together!

P.S. I can’t believe I don’t have a yoga picture of us all! Who forgets to take that at a yoga shower?! At least I got these cute water bottles that Mrs. Andrea created for our yoga session!

Date Night with Mussels

Date Night with Mussels

20121230-102907.jpg
E and I have a long standing tradition of skipping dinner dates and opting for wine and app dates. It one of my favorite things that we do. There is something about sharing small plates that creates conversation and lets you enjoy each other rather than focusing on finishing the dinner in front of you.
Market Street Oyster Bar is one of our favorite places to do this. With a great wine selection and mussels and clams on the menu, how can you go wrong?! It’s a good thing my husband is form Maine and might possibly love seafood more than I do, which makes it easy as this is one of my all time favorite apps!

Wishing You…

Wishing You…

A Christmas filled with family, love, warm fires, and lots of laughs.

This year E and I spent Christmas at te Scrafford household and I have to admit we both loved every minute of it. I mean it’s no surprise that I loved it as I do love hanging out with the fam but I feel so beyond lucky that my husband enjoys it just as much!
Per usual Christmas came early this year due to Park’s crazy schedule and the rents (understandably) wanting to get out to Steamboat for the holidays. We celebrated Christmas Eve on Friday ad Christmas Day on Saturday which meant the whole family could be there! It felt just like Christmas (minus midnight mass) and it just goes to show that it’s the company your surrounded by that makes the holidays truly special. I hope everyone had as merry of a Christmas as our lill fam did!
