A Very Pink Baby Shower April 9, 2011

Today, I hosted a baby shower at my house for my good friends, Erika and Timmy. They are expecting a baby girl in a month or so and we are SO excited for them! I’ve been collaborating with her mom on the party, and I think it came out so cute! I think baby Sophie will love all her gifts!

We totally lucked out that it’s Easter Season because Easter Colors = Baby Shower colors!

Timmy’s sister made an awesome Diaper Cake! Very Cute!

I could never make a cake that would come out remotely as good as Erika could, so I didn’t even try. I left the cake to the professionals and got some Yummy Cupcakes. Wise decision. They were awesome!

Sugar Close-Up Awesomeness!

Since Erika loves books (who doesn’t!), we asked everyone to bring their favorite childhood book to add to Sophie’s bookshelf. Lots of fun kids books! I loved seeing what everyone picked. No duplicates either!

We played a couple of fun games. (And no, we did NOT play the ‘smell the diaper’ game. That’s gross.)

First up was ‘How Big is the Bump’.

We each cut some Tummy Tape the length we thought would fit around mama’s belly. Closest one wins!
Janet came the closest! The rest of us were way off. haha sorry Erika!

The second game we played was called ‘The Mommy Multitasker’! Each person had to pretend to hold a baby and be on the phone while trying to pin socks to the clothesline with one hand. The most socks pinned in 30 seconds wins!


The guys tried too. It was quite funny to watch!




We had three rounds of ties before finally finding a winner!


Since we had a small group, we decided to bring in some food from Pitfire Pizza. AMAZING. They have the best pizza.


They got so many great gifts. I think Baby Sophie will have everything she needs when she makes her debut into the world.



It was nice that Timmy was there too. I think he was getting a kick out of all the cute little baby things.

It was neat that some people got to watch via Skype.

We made goodie bags for all the guests too.

Each bag contained a cute notepad, a Cheerios Cereal Bar (they used to call the baby Cheerio before they knew it was going to be a girl!), some chocolate and a homemade bookmark.


Congratulations guys. We’re SO excited to meet the baby in just a few weeks!



Relaxing Weekday Evenings January 27, 2011

My life just isn’t that exciting on weekdays. We’re pretty boring people during the week (and then get all crazy on the weekends I guess!)

We watched a lot of Jeopardy this week. HAHA It’s sort of become our nightly cooking routine.

One night, we cooked up one of our Dream Dinners. This one was a recipe created by Bon Greene, one of Oprah’s experts.


It was a healthy take on Sweet and Sour chicken.

The chicken was baked with oranges, pineapples, apricots, figs and oranges. It was deliciously sweet and we couldn’t believe there was no added sugar, it was all natural.

Paired with some orange slices on the side, it definitely hit the spot.

In other random news, I ate a Trader Joes burrito for lunch one day this week off of a Hanukah plate.
I thought this was HIL-ARIOUS. I was going to take a picture, but then the burrito kind of exploded in the microwave and ruined my plans.


Have you guys checked out yet? It’s a pretty neat interactive website. It’s so cool, you don’t even realize you’re learning stuff.

For example:!/Marathon

Oh, and just for some added cuteness, I got to snuggle with the infamous Hudson this morning.
He was totally worth the Parking Ticket I got while hanging out at his place today. TOTALLY worth it.

I’m up at 6 for a run in the morning. And because I’m announcing it on the blog, I HAVE to actually do it.
I’m off to watch Teen Mom 2! Night!


US National Soccer Team vs. Chile January 23, 2011

Last night, Irving and I headed down to the Home Depot center for some soccer! It was the US National Team vs. Chile.

We had a great time at the game, it was packed!

I think the score ended up at 1-1 at the end.

Sadly, no Beckham to look at, but these guys were YOUNG! Irving said they were probably 16 years old, because they are training for the World Cup in 2014.


I have to admit, while the game was fun, I was totally distracted by this young man.


Ashley’s mom and Hudson joined us for the game as well! He and I coordinated our outfits.

Oh, I just love him.

After the game, we hung out for a little bit, and headed back home. By now it was 10pm and we hadn’t eaten dinner. We ran through our options of restaurants that would still be open, but then we realized if we went out, we wouldn’t get home til midnight!

So we ended up just making PB&J Sandwiches (with a side of pickles) and headed straight for bed.

I’m currently icing my muscles and then heading out on a 5 mile run! Happy Sunday!


Game Night! Bezzerwizzer! December 31, 2010

Last night, our friends Ashley and JR had a bunch of friends over for a game night. They had an amazing spread of food (Red Velvet cupcakes, homemade rice krispies treats, carmel corn, veggies, nuts… and my favorite: chips and dip!! Mmmm!!!)

Little Hudson is getting so big. He’s just adorable!

He watched as we played an intense game of Bezzerwizzer. It’s a trivia strategy game that Erika and Timmy brought over.

We had an amazing night with our friends (new and old!)

The boys!

The girls (Even abby!)

Thanks for a fun night!
