Expecting

So I guess it's official now - we're heading into summer!!!  Family functions, parties and bbq's are all underway!!  If you're in the States, I'm hoping that you had a fabulous Memorial Day weekend complete with friends and family!!

Talking about family, my hubby's cousin and his gf are expecting their first child this November.  Since they were both coming to our party over the holiday weekend, I thought it would be nice to throw a little something together to congratulate them!

We don't know whether they're having a boy or a girl, so I stayed away from the traditional pink and blue, but a few girly touches made their way in - I just couldn't help it ...hehehe.



I'd like to personally thank my dear friend, Charlene, for helping me find such an adorable image when nothing I had was working!  If you haven't checked out her blog, grab a cuppa and go visit her by clicking here!  She is mad talented and I know you won't be disappointed!!
