Diaper Cake

A couple of years ago, for my sister's baby shower, one of our family friends, Fran, made Christina the most amazing diaper cake. I mean it was AMAZING. I still don't think I have seen one like it. Anyway, it inspired me and since then, I started making them and I have to say, I just don't believe that you can have a baby shower, or a baby for that matter, without a diaper cake. I have been making and selling them a bit here and there and giving them as gifts. Here is my most recent, for a baby boy. I just love it. I think I am going to start an etsy shop or a website but I need a good name.....My approach to diaper cakes it that yes, the diapers will be used, but that the cake should match the nursery so it can be a decoration in the nursery for at least a few weeks, so I never use newborn diapers.

I am apparently making a bunch of Dr. Suess themed cakes for my other sister's shower next weekend, will post pics of those then.

And no, I still don't have an anniversary dinner dress, but wasn't the lunch hour specifically invented for trips to the mall??? I think so.

The dress I want at a price I don't.

Dear BCBG, why is this dress $400? Does it have real diamonds sewn in? I tried it on and it was so flipping cute, but $400? Come on, that is a car payment.

I can't decide what to do, I really want this for our anniversary dinner...SAD.

The problem is, where in the hell else can I wear a white dress? I can't wear it after labor day, I can't wear it to a wedding or a wedding shower or a wedding rehearsal dinner. That is right ladies, just in case you wondered I had a girl wear a white dress to my rehearsal and my wedding, how sickingly ignorant and rude is that???? I still owe her a smack in the face...

I would buy it if I had somewhere else to wear it. UGHHHH...Please weigh in friends.....

White Dress???

I am so excited for my one year anniversary but I need to find something cute to wear to dinner. I am thinking a super cute dress in a white or off white. My friend found this on and it is adorable but it looks like you may need to buy an extra few inches on the bottom or wear with pants?!?!?! If you are petite or a model this could be a nice rehearsal dinner dress. I don't do short, so I am gonna keep looking......

During my hunt for the perfect anniversary dinner dress, I also found this Amsale dress. It may be a little fancy but I love it. I love everything Amsale but this is probably outside of my anniversary dress budget...This would also be perfect for a bride's rehearsal dinner or shower dress.

Anniversary Month

I can't believe that my one-year anniversary is coming up on August 29th and I am so exicted to celebrate with my wonderful hubby. I really do think that we had the best wedding ever. To celebrate our first anniversary month I will be doing some wedding posts, sharing photos from our wedding, like the one above (from the amazing Amanda Bevington--I love you Amanda!) as well as wedding thoughts, advice and photos of things I love for weddings.

I was doing some wedding blog surfing a couple of months ago(yes after you get married you still stalk wedding blogs, or at least I do). I was on and I was introduced to Emersonmade. I can't handle Emersonmade. I love the flower broaches, I ordered the "Big Poppy" and I am constantly wearing it. I wear it with a black dress or a white t-shirt. I love it. I just don't think anything is cuter than a broach or flower pin like this. You can order them in many colors and maybe pair one with a cute dress for a wedding or summer party or put it on a blazer or jacket and wear with jeans out to dinner.

Also, how cute is this idea for bridesmaids? I just think these flowers are adorable and so is this picture.

Have a great weekend everyone!
