Baby Girl Sprinkle & Estrea Giveaway Announcement

Well, the winner has been announced on Twitter already this morning, and I am happy to finally announce here, that the winner of my Estrea giveaway is Mandy from Mommy Musings!

Thank you all so much for participating. I had a great time hosting, and can barely wait to announce my newest giveaway here tomorrow!

I mentioned briefly yesterday that I had the pleasure of throwing a 'Baby Sprinkle' for one of my very best friends over the weekend. You may know Aliya, she blogs over at Double the Fun about her adventures in Mommyhood, her adorable son, and baby #2 on the way!

This was the first time that I tried my hand at throwing a 'sprinkle' that was 'baby girl' themed! And, I will be the first to say that, not only was it a blast, but it made me want a little girl in a bad, bad way!!

Obviously, I couldn't pull the whole thing off by myself, and was lucky enough to have another bestie helping me out along the way!

We started scouring Pinterest for ideas months ago, and I absolutely loved the way everything came together for the big day!

I have plans to share the details on that adorable little rattle wreath, inspired by this pin, as well as the recipe and love that goes into making these cupcakes later this week and early next!

I think it goes without saying that we went with pink, pink, and more PINK! What can I say, Aliya already has a baby boy, and since they know baby #2 is a girl, we just couldn't help ourselves :o) Pink tissue poms, lemonade, flowers, plates and so much more.

The sprinkle was the first event I've hosted in our new home, and I was thrilled that it went as well as it did. I swear I could have lived in that baby girl inspired 'wonderland' for weeks on end! 

Events and major life milestones like these really allow me to take the time to stop and focus on how lucky I am to have the girlfriends that I do. Each of these ladies have enriched my life in so many ways, and I'm so glad we captured these memories on Sunday!
