Hubby was working all day so the girls and I took off for a couple adventures!
First it was off to the Mom 2 Mom Consignment Fall sale! We found a few good deals but the prices at the Fall sale were nowhere near as low as the Summer prices! I was a little let down by it simply because people had much higher prices on the clothes there! Either way - the girls ended up getting a couple cute pieces each :-) AND I also decided that I'm going to work on bulking up my "in stock" pieces and have a goal of being a vendor at the Spring Sale! **WOOT WOOT!**
After the M2M sale it was time to come home and finish the cupcakes for Elizabeth's baby shower! I had found a cupcake recipe and emailed it to Elizabeth a few weeks ago and after seeing how excited she got about it I couldn't wait to make them! I chose a "Lemon Supreme" cake with raspberry preserve filling. Can you say DIVINE?!
The whole time we were putting the turtles together and even when I was putting them on, all I could think of were the turtles in "Finding Nemo", hence the title to this post... I'm a sap for any Disney movie really, but this is easily one of my faves!
After getting all the cupcakes ready - it was on to the shower! I was so excited to get there and put my little works of art on display! I made sure to keep an eye out for when anyone came up to them to check them out. A couple people even took pictures of them because they liked them so much! :-) That literally made my day! More important than anything, Elizabeth was tickled pink! Or well, blue and green I guess! And let me tell you what - Little Mr. Aiden is LOVED already! Everyone had a wonderful time, enjoyed (multiple) cupcakes and showered Elizabeth the way every mother-to-be should be!
Here's a couple snapshots of the little dudes!
