A Geometric Baby Shower for Nicky

Last weekend I hosted a little baby shower for my sweet friend, Nicky.  Nicky and I met at the gym – and even though we see each other almost every day, we (like most of my other gym friends) rarely see each other outside of the gym.  I thought it would be fun to invite all our gym pals and have a chance to hang out for an evening...minus the sweat.  It was great!  These girls are a bunch of babes and so hilarious!

Nicky has two beautiful girls and is expecting her first boy any day now.  She is by far the most fit pregnant mama I've ever seen.  She still teaches classes at the gym, kicks our butts, and looks great doing it!

 I made mini Tranquil  whipped body butters as party favors. 

Our friends, Heather and Sarah, made this cute diaper cake.

 Nicky made this amazing fruit tart for the shower. 
 Erin made these Nutella Bruschetta with berries and almonds.

School's Out | 2015

Like I said last year – I made a promise to Sean that I would document the end and beginning of each school year in exchange for not having to buy ugly school pictures.  Just doing my duty here :0  Although, it is fun to look back and see how they've grown!

Daysen finished 7th grade, Brenner 4th, Zane 1st, and Indy finished his last year of freedom since preschool starts in the fall.  These boys are EX-cellent students.  They all get good grades and are amazing friends to their peers.  Brenner especially had a great year – serving on student council as the Fire Marshall and excelling in his GATE class.  He was also selected to be on safety patrol for next year, which is a huge honor!  Daysen carried an almost perfect GPA (he got one B in advanced math) and Zane grew leaps and bounds in his reading and writing (I have to give credit to his teacher who is just terrific – Love you, Mrs. B).  I sure love these boys!

 For open house Zane gave us a tour of his classroom and work. 

Brenner said goodbye to his friend Andrew.  So hard when friends move away in the summer!
Daysen missed the photo shoot – but, here he is the last week of school with his bros!
