What I Love Wednesday #5

It's that time of the week again...time for me to tell you what I'm loving!! 

I've loving that I finally decided on the paint colors for my hutch!  I'm going w/ an "antique white" for all over and this lovely "Twilight Blue" From Martha Stewarts paint collection at Home Depot, for the background!  I'll also be paining my kitchen chairs this color!  L-O-V-E IT!  We're starting the paint projects this weekend so maybe I'll have pics next week!
 Here's the hutch...the Twilight Blue will only be on the back, bead board part.

I'm a huge fan of the "Sookie Stackhouse Series" By Charlaine know, the books that the show True Blood is based on and the newest book in the series just came out!  As always, I'm loving it so far!!

My Honey's mom got me a Cruz E-Reader for Christmas and I love it!  I wasn't sure at first but now that I've gotten used to can I ever go back to a book...It's so nice to sit and bed and buy whatever books you desire...nice, yet dangerous on the pocketbook!!

I started watching The United States of Tara a few years ago and this season does not disappoint!  It's my Monday night pleasure...or usually Tuesday b/c I don't stay up late enough to watch it on Monday!  Who doesn't love  a dramedy? 

YAY, YAY, YAY!!  True Blood comes back on June 26!  I. can't. wait.  I was seriously depressed when Season 3 was over!  Alan Ball has done amazing things with the show!!  And although it definitely strays from the books, that's ok b/c it's greatness!  I heart you Eric Northman!!!

My newest guilty pleasure of a TV show is The Borgias on HBO. much corruption, sex and immoralities in the Catholic Church!  Who knew?!? ;)  No offense to anyone Catholic...this took place in the late 1400's!

Linking up w/ Jamie @ This Kind of Love! and Lesley @ Mommy in the Making!

Enjoy...The Curvy Life!

What I Love Wednesday #4

It's Wednesday...and I love this day because I get to do this post!!  It's always fun to share what I'm loving!!

Here's what I'm loving today!

 I'm loving how in love Kate and William looked on their wedding day!!

I am 100% IN LOVE with Kate's dress. 
I think she looked so full of class and grace!  She's the perfect Princess!

I love that they wear funky hats to big events in England.  Why don't we do that in America?

 I went to First Monday Trade Days (it's like a Flea Market on Steroids!) with my mom this past Friday and got some lovely things for my new home!

I am in love with my Country
and I am so thankful to the men and women who protect us each day!

I love that today is my 29th birthday and that
God has blessed me with these 29 years to spend with the best family and friends!
(My pretty cake that Lesley got for me!)

I love my new charm that My Honey got me for my charm's a Lab for our black lab Koopa!

I love my necklace that Lesley got me from a cute little Etsy shop!

I love my new Burlap Toms that I got from Anna and Todd for my b-day!
I love  that I got several gift cards for my b-day that I will be able to use to buy fun stuff for a new house!

Well, that's my list for this beautiful Wednesday!  What are you loving!?!?

Sister-In-Law's Baby Shower!

My brother and his beautiful wife Lesley are expecting their first bundle of joy!  John Zane Ward is expected to join us at the end of May or early June.  I am over joyed to be an aunt for the first time!  I had the honor of throwing Lesley one of her baby showers with several other lovely ladies!  I started planning the shower last year!  HAHA!  I absolutely LOVE throwing a good party!  I took it upon myself to make several of the decorations!  So...without further adieu...enjoy the eye candy of Lesley's shower!

We used the canvas she made over the mantle, it went perfectly with our theme!

I used the Martha Stewart Owl Punch to make the adorable stir sticks!

My mom and I made this diaper cake.  We love how it turned out!!  It was SUPER easy to make, too!

We had a "Milk and Cookies" station!  Each hostess made a different cookie!


When guests arrived there was a little book that my mom and I made for them to leave a sweet note for the new family.

My mom put together this fabulous flower arrangement.  She's so talented!

The party favors were perfect!  Check out how Lesley announced they were expecting, here, and see why these favors were perfect!

We found this "ABC" block at Hobby Lobby and knew it would be perfect for a flower arrangement.  We used "All Occasion Florist" in Dallas and the exceeded our expectations, as always!

Using my Cricut I made this banner as well as the "Got Cravings" banner above.

I made her corsage w/ ribbon and a cute little wooden owl I found at Hobby Lobby.

Lesley w/ all of her hostesses.

Lesley and I.

This is what she wants Zane to wear home from the hospital. 
She has been referring to him as her "Handsome Little Man."

Her very talented cousin made her this amazing growth chart for Zane's room!

Mommy To Be is all ready for Zane to arrive!

Baby Bumps!
