Our Housewarming Party

This whole weekend sure took it out of me. I started baking on Thursday for our housewarming party on Saturday, and continued baking on Friday night. Then on Saturday was the overhaul of cleaning and crazy amounts of cooking and setting up. It was all so worth it though! 

You know it's serious business when you've got both the kitchen aid and hand mixer going

I made little signs for everything I served. Of course H made fun of me for doing so, but all the girls thought it was a great idea. Brilliant minds think alike :0)

Lovely ladies

Then, this morning we met our friends who have been down from CT for brunch. We wanted to see each other one more time before they leave to go back home. 

Kristine looked fabulous as always, but you can tell how exhausted I am. Don't judge me! Haha... but check out the little man in the background. He's already 2 months old and has grown so much since we first saw him when we were home for Christmas.

One last shot with my bf from high school. She's one hot new mama!

Close up of the little man... so adorable!
