Welcome Emily Elizabeth!

Well, I suppose it was bound to happen. Monday afternoon, as I wrote and scheduled the Avon Giveaway post, I had no idea I was about to go into labor. Emily was born at 7:46 am, weighing in at 6 pounds 4 ounces, 19 inches long. We're overjoyed with this new blessing, and are drinking in every moment we have with her. I'm officially on maternity leave for 8 weeks, and will plan on posting as I have the chance.

Hello Frosting!

I ran across these ingenious edible icing decals while perusing one of my favorite Etsy shops (Olliegraphic). hello frosting creates edible frosting decals that are an easy and economical way to pump up those plain cupcakes, cookies or whatever!

The designs are printed on thin sheets of edible icing using food-grade inks, so they're safe to eat and can be totally customized. They have lots of designs to choose from, wedding related and more.

And, by collaborating with Meg over at Olliegraphic, hello frosting now offers a selection of customized decals featuring an illustration of your child. How fun would a birthday party be with cupcakes that look like the birthday girl (or boy)?

Up for grabs is a full set of Avon Glazewear lip glosses. 16 full size tubes in an assortment of unique colors. See all the colors here at the official Avon website. This set would be perfect to use just before a bachelorette party, or with all your bridesmaids as you get ready for your big day! You could even split up this set and give them away as gifts!

Will she be a daddy's girl?

Well folks, we're officially down to less than a week before baby arrives. In case you don't remember, our due date is Sunday, June 20th, Father's Day to be exact. We've had a lot of predictions as to when our little lady will make her arrival, and although they're all very hopeful, I'm sure she'll arrive late.

I will be sure to update as often as I can, but consider this a warning for the light posting schedule that is sure to come. I have a few posts ready and waiting, but I can't imagine I'll have much time these first few weeks with a newborn.

Enjoy this special Father's Day weekend, and as always, happy planning!

DIY Alphabet Crayons for the Little Guests

Looking for a quick idea to keep the kids busy at your wedding reception? Look no further than this awesome tutorial for DIY alphabet crayons I saw over at Spearmint Baby.

You could spread these out at a childrens' activity center (spelling your names or other little phrases) or package them up in to-go bags for each of your littlest guests. Parents will be forever grateful!
