skirts and muffins

Summer is almost here, that means it's skirts and sandals season. I love the sunny skies and the breezy winds we been having lately. Puts one in a good mood to blog.
A&F shirt, BR reversible belt, F21 skirt and Gap sandals.
I'm not much of an accessories person, but I've been trying. Found this orange earrings at the BR outlet. 

Look at his face.... so cute!
Forgot my sunglasses! Hollister skirt, it matches my sandals.
Banana Muffins...Awesome recipe found here: Banana Crumb Muffins
I think I've finally made it the way it suppose to be, that means I did not burn them.
I made these standard cupcake size. It's a good breakfast.

Boo wants some too.
 Happy Weekend everyone!

Baby Shower :P

My coworker, C, has just given birth to a baby girl. Congrats to her! A week prior to the birth, our office threw her a baby shower. I took care of the gifts and decorations and another coworker took care of the food. It was such a success, C cried :).
everyone chipped in 10 dollars for the gift and decoration. I was trying to be as frugal as possible; pulling out my couponing skills and shopping at the dollar store.
Anatomy of a party:
balloons-lots of it.
cakes-I used cupcakes and brownies
gifts- diapers and baby wipes
and food!
The dollar store is a great place for balloons, only a dollar each. we blew up balloons and leave them on the floor.

It was my first time making a diaper cake, fortunately, the internet was a great resource. with a little imagination, it turned out pretty good.  the gifts were just baby wipes. I wanted to save as much money as possible so C can have it to buy baby things.
Add food: pizza, salad, buffalo wings.
