Bridal Shower and Birthday Party

Catching up with last weekend:

I hosted a bridal shower for my future sister-in-law.

Ready for guests!
Pretty cupcakes provided by the MOH

The table is set!


Opening gifts

The creative and cool towel cake by Aunt Cathy

A special cookbook just for two :)

Reading the "Coleslaw Sandwich" entry

She has a future on Price is Right :)

Breaking a ribbon - I tied it tight enough!
The bridal shower was a lot of work, but well worth the fun.  It went very well and everyone seemed to have a good time.  My brother and his future wife probably said thank you no fewer than 10 times - they were VERY appreciative :)

One of the things I value most is being close to family.  Being able to host a party like this was just one of the many wonderful family moments that happen because we're here.  We live in a tiny house, but I stay home and we're surrounded by family.  We might be poor in worldly goods, but we're rich in family.

Speaking of family - we had family over to celebrate Little Bean's 6th birthday.

The cake

Excited to blow out candles!
This week has also been busy with hubby going back to work.  For those of you who have been reading, you already know, but he was laid off April 28th.  After a stress-filled, prayer-filled couple months, he was offered a temp-to-hire position in the same line of work in our area - so, no move and hopefully a step up in the career path should he be hired at the end of the 6 months.

He's liking his job, a little stressed out worrying about how everything will shake out and getting up to speed, but he likes it.

Cocoa chilling in his deck-spot

The flowergirl dress is here!
We're getting closer to my brother's wedding day and the flowergirl dresses have arrived.  LB tried hers on and it's a good fit, so that's one more thing down.

This week we also received the sad news that a close family friend passed away unexpectedly.  Please keep the family in your prayers, she leaves behind her husband of 30 years and two adult children.
