Liz's Baby Shower

This last Thursday we had a baby shower for Liz at Janice Darby's home. I was in charge of decorating the cupcakes and I was very excited about this at first. I could picture in my head how cute these baby boy cupcakes would be but when it came time for the decorating I had such a hard time. I never realized how difficult decorating cupcakes could be! After much time and with a lot of help from Aaron, we finally did it and here is the end result.



Janice did a great job of decorating the table and made a perfect spot for the cupcakes to go.
Here are just a few other pictures from the shower.

San Diego

On August 21st I flew down to San Diego (my first trip without Aaron since we've been married) and met up with 6 of my very best friends. These are girls that I have known my whole life and it was so great to be able to spend 3 days non-stop with them. I've put off blogging this fun weekend because I haven't known how to sum up such a grand adventure. So I decided to steal Mandy's great summary of the weekend and post a bunch of pictures. Enjoy!

"We all arrived at various times on Thursday and stayed up talking until ~3am. Then on Friday morning, after breakfast, we went to play at Pacifica beach. The beach was beautiful and the waves were big and so fun to play in. For lunch we had In N' Out burger, if you haven't eaten there it is not worth missing. Later that night we walked around Old Town San Diego. Saturday we went to Coronada island, which is beautiful. We rented bikes and rode around the island. On the route we saw a crepe and gelato shop so we stopped in for lunch. After lunch we hung out the beach. Later that night we went out to dinner at a great place that was right on the water and we could the San Diego cityscape from our table. As we were finishing up dinner there was a firework show in the distance which was great to watch. On Sunday we all went our seperate ways."
Thanks for wrapping it up so well Mandy!
And here are some of my favorite pictures. I know, there's a lot.

We rented two cars, matching white PT Cruisers.



The bike ride, perhaps my favorite part of the trip. Too bad we didn't get a picture of Mel crashing the bike that her, Mandy, Lauren and Aubrey were riding!

Then we stopped at the gelato and crepe restaurant for lunch. Divine.




Here's a little video of dinner on the water

Our last night we roasted marshmallow's on the stove. The original plan was to go to the beach but it was so much easier this way.

Since we had such a great time, we decided to make a tradition. We're going on a cruise in 2011! I can't wait! Miss you girls!
