so first off, I know I really slacked-off on this little blog in May, but you guys, time is flying by!

^^And by flying by, I mean enjoying a cocktail (or two) while I wait for my flight. 😉 ^^

Have no fear, I’ve had a few fun-filled, busy trips that I can’t wait to tell you about – starting with my sister’s TWO babies and her TWO baby showers over Memorial Day weekend.

^^My brother-in-law’s a highway patrolman so the twins have their uniforms all ready to go!^^

You may remember last time I made the trek to Missouri to visit my family we had the opportunity to toast to my sister Shannon and her pregnancy (she’s documenting it all here), but over Memorial Day we really got the chance to shower her and those babies with love.

Can you tell we were all a little excited about feeling them kick?

So much so, it might’ve looked like a Pinterest board exploded in my parent’s kitchen. Sadly, I’m still wishing I could take all the credit for the crafty-ness, but Shannon’s good friend from college came over and worked her DIY magic.

Shannon's Baby Shower

^^And that all was just from the first shower of the weekend!^^

But perhaps the most exciting part of each shower was the gender(s) reveal for all the guests.

Somehow (I sure couldn’t do it), Shannon managed to keep them a secret from almost everyone – immediate family not included – for several months. Thankfully, I didn’t have to wait that long. Whew.

^^In fact, my creative cousin over at Chasing Davies, came up with a cute way to reveal the gender(s) at the shower she graciously gave for Shannon.^^

So without further ado, the two newest members of the family will be…


^^A niece and nephew. I couldn’t be more excited!^^

In fact, by the end of the weekend I think all that excitement had gotten the best of us. 🙂

Because a short 48-hours later it was back to D.C. for a little cuddle time with one of my favorites…
