Baby Stewart is on the Way!

So this weekend I had the honor of hosting a baby shower for my super pregnant even more super adorable cousin Emily. We are all so excited to meet the newest little girl in the next month or so. I had such a great time prepping and planning and hosting this shower. I hope Emily enjoyed it half as much as I did. :) 
For this shower I tried my hand at a few crafting project. The hubs was out of town for a few weeks and it gave me a LOT of time to do some crafting. 
The first project was a wreath for the front door. I have done a diaper cake and I have seen even more adorable decorating ideas using diaper, but I decided that I would try my hand using diapers for the front door wreath. I wasn't very sure where to get started, so I just went with a package of diaper and some tulle and got going....

Emily's favorite color is purple, so there was a LOT of purple! We had a calendar for the guests to make their predictions of when they thought baby stewart would arrive.

One of the games we played was "The Price Is Right". The items included things for the new mommy to be, bathtime for baby, day to day operations for baby, and feeding time.

The next craft project I played with was a purple butterfly mobile. With the use of some tulle, a cricut machine (thanks Dr. Wells), and some string, I finally got the mobile done! I think the hardest part of was transporting it to town without getting all the stings mixed up.

Emily's aunts offered to do the food for the shower, and they did not disappoint. It was a beautiful spread of delicious food! 

I ordered some paper flowers off of Esty. They were a perfect touch of color and I love that paper flowers last FOREVER! The hubs helped glue stems on some of the flowers so that I could put them in vases, others I just put scattered on tables, etc. 
Want some paper flowers? Check out http://www.etsy.com/shop/lillesyster for flower needs. They paper flowers are beautifully made!

For party favors, I ordered some cookies from Etsy and then bagged them. I topped the bags with a purple onesies that said "thank you". We have bought these cookies for another baby shower and they were such a great hit, I decided to use them again. 
Check out http://www.etsy.com/shop/sugarandflour for you cookie needs! They are so yummy!

So I tried my hand at a baby tutu and it got a little out of control. This is a total tulle fest! So maybe next time only one round of tulle will be used! :)

We had a great turn out for the shower. I hope everyone had a great time. I also created a pennant banner with the alphabet. It worked out great over the back windows.

I dont think Nanny enjoyed looking/smelling each diaper.

New Beginnings...

Song of Solomon 8:6-7  Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm, for love is strong as death, jealousy is fierce as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, the very flame of the LORD. Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it. If a man offered for love all the wealth of his house, he would be utterly despised.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7  Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

1 Corinthians 16:14  Do everything in love.

Ecclesiastes 4:12 Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. 

I love going to weddings with my husband. I LOVE it. There is something about seeing two lives being joined together that just makes me so happy and so thankful for the one that I joined my life with. I don't think it is any secret that I love my husband. I mean seriously i LOVE him. He makes me so happy and there is no doubt in my mind that he is the one and only one for me! And watching friends of ours joined together in marriage and listening to their vows while holding my husbands hand and thinking back on the commitment we made to each other and to our Lord just takes the cake every time. I know that we have only been married for 2 years but I really hope that the feeling I get at weddings continue forever! It is really the best! So this past weekend we headed to Memphis to see our friend James and his lovely wife Megan get hitched! It was BEAUTIFUL!! And a month ago we headed to Jackson to see my dear sweet friend Jessica get married to her love Kevin. The setting was breath-taking and the love on their faces was so wonderful! Here are some pictures of the last few weddings! Love it!
So to start out here are some from the Puckett Wedding.
 I love this girl and her parents. What a sweet moment!

Lots of HAPPY going on here!

 Adorable Cake.

I love these two girls! Seriously some of my favorites! 

Off they go with some sparklers!

So next up the Cornett Wedding!

These two people made a major impact on my life and I will forever be grateful for their influence! Love and miss you Warings!!

Sweet Friends!

And more sparklers!!! Love!

Well I hope that you have enjoyed a short re-cap of some very amazing weddings! Praying God's blessing over the Pucketts and the Cornetts! So thankful for my husband!
