Pinking of you, baby girl!

This past weekend was Rachel’s baby shower. Her sister, boss, and I hosted the shower at her mother’s house. The preparation took a lot of planning and a lot of tulle. 

This is Rachel and I at one of her doctor’s appointment. We got official confirmation that it was a girl that day! 

Here are some behind the scenes pictures of the making of the tulle skirt for the table: 

The final product: 
Hannah did an amazing job organizing the candy bar and food. 
Note the rubber duckies floating in the punch bowl! 
My friend Mandy made the cutest bow cookies for Rachel! 

I was also really proud of the favors and diaper cake I made: 
Pink white chocolate popcorn with Valentine’s Day M&Ms… Yum! 

It was a really fun day celebrating Rachel! I’m so glad that we had the opportunity to host this for her. 
Ciao for now!

Wallpaper Wednesday

Rachel was so sweet to link me in her blog post yesterday about her new iPhone case.
As usual, here are some cute wallpapers to use on your iPhones. I find all of my photos on Pinterest, you can find each artist by clicking “source” below the pictures. 
Remember, a new wallpaper can make you feel like you have a brand new phone!

This one would be great for Masters coming up because they look like little golf balls. It’s never too soon to start planning for Masters Week! 

This one was inspired by my sister Kaitlyn. Beauty and the Beast is her favorite Disney movie and I thought the castle would be great for Valentine’s day (as would most of the ones I posted today). Plus, it was just announced that Emma Watson will be playing Belle in the upcoming movie!
Ciao for now!

I’ve recently become obsessed with changing my iPhone wallpaper (both lock and home screens). Here are some of my recent favorites that I found on Pinterest. I’ll link the sources to the best of my ability.




This would have been perfect for New Years but works with Valentine’s Day coming up soon!



This is currently my lock screen wallpaper. It reminds me of FL and CA, both happy memories from 2014.
This is currently my home screen wallpaper. I have so many apps that I like simple wallpaper for the home screen but the bottom flowers really add a nice pizazz!

Can y’all tell that I am wishing for Spring?  I am definitely ready for warmer weather and brighter colors. 

Ciao for Now,

Let Them Eat King Cake

Yesterday was Fat Tuesday so Rachel and I decided to partake in some Mardi Gras fun.
Here are pictures of the King Cake which I decorated as well as some snapshots of the festivities.

 
We couldn’t find the baby in our pieces so we decided to cut the cake until we found it. Overall our “Pardi Gras” celebration was an adventure and my fingers may be stained yellow, green, and purple for a few days.  
Let them eat king cake! 
Hope your Fat Tuesday was as delicious as ours! 

Let’s Talk About Guac

One of my favorite snacks and my ultimate comfort food is guacamole. Growing up I would spend my summers at my grandparents’ house in Miami. Their neighborhood was on an old mango orchard. My grandfather had many mango trees, a banana tree, and my favorite, an avocado tree. Florida avocados are very different than the avocados that are sold on Georgia supermarkets. Florida avocados are the size of my head and a haas avocado is the size of my palm. 
Here is my guacamole recipe which is based on the recipe from my Cuban grandfather. 
Ingredients: 
1 Roma tomatoes 
1/4 of a white onion 
A sliver of jalapeño pepper
A pinch of cilantro 
2 haas avocados (one Florida or California one) 
A bag of Tostitos Scoops chips! 
Finely chop (put in magic bullet) tomato, onion, a little bit of cilantro, and a sliver of jalapeño.
Cut the avocados in half, remove the pit, and scoop out the meat. Chop avocados. 
Mix the blended ingredients with the chopped avocados until you get a creamy but chunky consistancy. Scoop in and enjoy! 
Ciao for now!
