A pink, orange and black affair

So I actually have two sisters getting married this summer. I know I have mentioned my youngest sister, Krista, on this blog before, but my other sister, Katie is also getting married this summer. In two weeks. In my backyard. Yes, this is true. I am so pregnant I am about to pop, but yet I am hosting a small dinner party wedding for about 20 people in my backyard in two weeks. I am a crazy woman! She will have a large reception later. Anyhow, even though it's small, we are still doing it up nice. Her colors are hot pink, orange and black. She wants a bouquet and flowers in daisies in hot pink and orange. Also, I am doing a one layer cake that will look something like this:


The pink polka dots will be smaller, and the cake tall with only one layer stacked 4 high, but this is the same idea with the black ribbon lining the bottom and a hot pink flower topper on top. I have spent the last couple of weeks getting my backyard in tip-top shape. The flowers are going crazy so it will be really pretty I think. It's a sit down dinner party for around 20 people and it will be so pretty! And what is my part? Oh the flowers, cake, decor, setting up the backyard (I am enlisting family to move around everything), photography. I've already deligated a bunch out, but the creative aspects...yep, that's me. I love doing this sort of thing, but considering how pregnant I am, I must be some sort of "nut". Baby girl better stick tight for at least three more weeks, because the weekend after that is Ainsley's birthday. She has been talking about it for months and has it all planned out so I cannot miss it. Yes, my almost three year old knows exactly what she wants for her birthday and has been very emphatic about it.

Yes, I'll be taking lots of pictures, so my blog might get really fun in the next couple of weeks.

And how is baby girl doing? Well, we got the cutest ultrasound pics this last Tuesday, and she is doing marvelous by the way. She has plumped out and looks so nice and cozy in there. Look at those fat cheeks and pursed lips! In this one she has her hand on her mouth and her finger up like she's thinking. She's probably thinking, "Hmmmm, I don't think I ever want to come out!" At least that's what the last month of pregnancy always seems like to me! But like it or not, she will be coming out sometime the second week of June when I am 39 weeks.

I hope. Baby girl, stick tight! I have much to do before you can come out!


  1. the wedding is going to be beautiful. Such vibrant colors. I can't imagine trying to do all that and still stay sane...or ARE you??? :)
    Cute pictures of your little girly!

  2. What a woman! I don't know if I'd be able to take on all you're going to be doing in the next couple of weeks.
