Things on my mind lately…
1. I’m so excited next weekend is my baby shower out in Philadelphia!!! Kyle & I are so grateful for everyone making the trip & taking the time to help us celebrate our little guy. My Pinterest has recently been overrun with baby related items, and I thought this Baby Shower Cake was sooo cute. Naked cakes are totally in right now (although I’d have to add a LITTLE more frosting to this cake…), and it makes sense as we try to slowly eat better & eliminate sugar from our diets. Plus, the “Happy Pushing” sign is hilarious. Feminine, chic, & funny – perfection! This won’t be my cake, but I thought it was too funny not to share!
2. I just started washing some of the baby clothes we’ve gotten, and the one thing that is totally lacking in the little guys wardrobe are socks & shoes. I know he doesn’t NEED shoes, but come on now…Baby Murphy did receive his first set of ADORABLE moccasins (similar) in brown, and I love the idea of adding some colored shoes to his wardrobe. The options from Freshly Picked are all adorable. They have gender neutral colors as well as girl/boy colors. I love the teal & grey ones!!
3. Next weekend when my friend is in town, we plan to do a lot of freezer cooking to prepare my kitchen for those first few weeks after delivery to eliminate having to think or try too hard to have a decent dinner ready. I also saw a cute blog post about bringing the nurses chocolate chip cookies. Whether for the nurses, or just for Kyle & I and any visitors, I definitely want to have some batter in the freezer that I can pop in the oven before heading to the hospital. If I end up laboring at home for a few hours, it’ll be a good distraction & easy to do! I’m thinking of using this recipe, although my go to is hard to pass up!
