My youngest sister is expecting her first baby. It's a girl!! We can't wait to meet her. In the anticipation, my sisters and I had a baby shower for her earlier this month. The theme was lime green, pink, and lots of cute little owls. Here are some wonderful pictures that my talented neighbor, Ashley Spaulding, took for me. Check out her wonderful blog and pictures here. The recipes and instructions for everything pictured will be posted throughout this week. So, don't forget to "like" my Facebook page to keep up on each post. I hope you enjoy!!
