This past weekend was insanely busy...
Friday morning I had the kids and car packed up and my Mom and I headed to the city for the day to pick up stuff for my sister's bridal shower we were hosting. Maddy was uber excited cuz she was going to Daycare for a visit...by noon we had most of our running around and it was just groceries left. It was a long, exhausting day and it wasn't even over yet. When I got home and unloaded all the groceries and stuff, I was onto making cakes...7 cakes to be exact...for a special little girl's 1st birthday. Once I had them all out of the oven, I was running out the door again...to a surprise shower for my cousin and friend, Lindsay. It was of course a good time surrounded my friends, gifts and lots of yummy food. When I came home that night, I started to crumb coat all my cakes and knew it was going to be a busy morning.
Saturday morning I was up early and making icing...loads and loads of icing. This cake I was doing was going to be sweet! It had 2 x 10", 2 x 8" and 1 x 6" plus a smash cake.
After re-doing the cake twice, this is what it looked like...I wasn't completely satisfied but I couldn't do anything else different. It started melting so I had to deliver it to her right away so she could keep it in a cool place. The rest of the day was prepping sandwiches and stuff for my sister's bridal shower.
Sunday I was up again early...5:00 am actually and finished the last of the food and stuff. I then hurried to get the kids dressed, myself dressed and the car packed and headed down to the hall to set up. We set the tables using centerpieces I found on Pinterest...
I made cute (but corny) party favors found here
It was a good turnout and I think Shannon got some really nice gifts, I didn't even see them cuz I was started to clean up! By that afternoon, I was sooo pooped out, we just relaxed the rest of the evening.
This week is a bit less stressed...Wednesday is rehearsal and then Saturday will be a busy day, but sooo looking forward to the wedding!
