My Gender Reveal Surprise!

Next week is the big moment. 

Next week marks the halfway point in my pregnancy (so far, yet so far to go) and although my husband has vetoed my plan to let him carry the baby for the 2nd half of the pregnancy, I’m excited that things are moving so quickly along.

Our 20-week ultrasound is set for next week, and while, of course, my biggest concern is to know that everything is ok with this baby–the fourth time around has been more anxiety-producing than any other time, actually–I have to admit that I’m really excited about finding out who we are adding to our family.

And I have an extra special surprise up my sleeve for the occasion…

Everything You Need for a DIY Baby Shower

Last week, I woke up to the most wonderful surprise. A group of friends (all friends online, none have I met in real life!!) surprised my friend Carla and I with a virtual baby shower. We woke up to find 14 different blog posts, all featuring amazing handmade items for baby – including baby shower invitations and refreshments! Not only did they surprise us online, but they ended up sending each of us all of their handmade goodies in the mail. From cute little burp cloths and baby shoes to nursery art and confetti balloons, they covered everything you’d need for a DIY baby shower! Take a look…

Ingrid's Book Themed Birthday Party

Over the weekend, my little Ingrid Grey turned 2! We celebrated her special day with a book themed birthday party! It was a small party, but still so cute. I did the decor and food myself, making it a simple, but special party for my little 2 year-old. Ingrid loves to read and I often find her off by herself, flipping through a book. We knew a book themed party would be the perfect way to throw a unique celebration for our little girl. Here are some of the adorable details…

Sweet as Hunny: Inspired Winnie the Pooh Baby Shower Ideas

I’m in the process of helping to plan a gender-neutral baby shower for a friend of mine, and I kept seeing “Winnie the Pooh” pop up as a gender-neutral baby shower theme over and over again. It makes sense: the color palette includes some great gender neutral colors, with hints of both Piglet pink and Eeyore blue without either being overpowering or suggestive of one gender or another. I love how you can really do a lot with a Winnie the Pooh theme: it can go from upscale elegance to rustic vintage charm with a few tweaks. There’s no denying that whatever you do with a Winnie the Pooh theme baby shower, it’s bound to be super cute!

Here are some of the most adorable Winnie the Pooh baby shower ideas I’ve come across in the last few weeks that are sure to inspire you a baby shower that’s sweet as hunny!

Baby Shower Ideas For Second Time Moms

I realize that it’s not in line with social etiquette to have a baby shower after the birth of your first child, since it can come across as gift-seeking. But I am a firm believer that every baby, whether it’s your first or your fifth, deserves to be celebrated! The celebration needn’t be about gifts either – it can be sweet and simple and all about celebrating the mama-to-be and her impending little bundle of joy. As such I’ve come up with a few fun ideas that just might be the ticket if you’re looking to plan a baby shower for a second time mama!
