Happy Cinco de Mayo

I just kind of realized that today is Cinco de Mayo. I went to Wal-Mart tonight and wondered why they had green and red streamers everywhere and party foods out. I'm WAY disappointed that I didn't spend today eating Mexican food and chips and salsa and white cheese dip. I could seriously eat Mexican food every day for the rest of my life but I haven't had any in at least a month while I've been trying to be good. Hope some of ya'll ate chips for me!

I thought I would share a couple of fun things today. If you are in my Sunday school class - you should probably skip the rest of this.
Thursday night is our class shower for one of my favorite friends, Kacy. She is expecting little Wells Michael in early July. Wells was her maiden name and I think it's such a fun name! She is doing the nursery in red and black with some zebra print in there! I love it! I made this diaper cake for decorations and for her to take home. (I also have a present for her - but I won't post that on here).
I have to miss the shower because it's the day we leave but I wanted to help out so I got the petit fours. This is the second box that wasn't as full. I could eat my weight in petit fours. Seriously! Chips and petit fours. YUM!
And finally...................Faith - this sweet blogger friend of mine just got an awesome embroidery machine and she sent me this beach towel in the mail today with my monogram on it. And it's green and brown. She also sent me the sweetest card to go with it. I'm overwhelmed by her thoughfulness! Faith - thank you so, so, so much!!!!! I LOVE IT! (I'll be sending a proper thank you your way!) P.S. SHE IS DOING A GIVEAWAY OF A TOWEL LIKE THIS ON HER BLOG - GO LEAVE HER A COMMENT!!!!!!
Have I mentioned that I love my blog friends???? Thank you for all of your sweet comments and e-mails. Keep them coming!!!!

How talented you are, Kelly! And petit fours are sooo good! That beach towel is super cute! I need (well want) one of those machines to embroider things! How fun is that!!!

Super CUTE diaper cake--wow!!! I wish I was eating a petit four right now...neat color scheme. And "Wells" IS a great name. My maiden name just wouldn't work that great for a first name! (unless I lived in Hollywood, I guess...isn't there a movie star with a son named Hopper?...I can't think who it is)

And how sweet of Faith to send that towel that is PERFECT for your trip! Monograms make things so special! Hope you saved room in your suitcase for it since you packed early! :) Have fun in the sun!

Hillary said...

I want to jump through this computer screen and eat every single one of those petit-fours! Oh my word!!!!!!!
What a cute towel! I could use and embroidery maching right about now. With all these hostess and bridesmaids gifts!
And yes, I will be a better blogger soon! :)

Why does a monogram make everything so adorable?! I love it.

And the diaper cake and petit fors are just darling. They will make the shower so cute!

Leigh Ann said...

Okay, that diaper cake is ADORABLE! You have to be THE craftiest person I know. I LOVE that towel. How sweet of Faith to do that! I am a nut for monograms. I think I need to get myself a machine, but then my poor children would have their names on everything they owned, probably even their underwear!

Tamara said...

Love Love LOVE the diaper cake! So very cute! It looks like you! The petit fours look so yummy, and coordinate so well with the diaper cake!

I love that Faith sent you a towel that perfectly suits you. I hope you have a wonderful and renewing trip. You'll be missed in blogland!

I love the towel. We have the same initials, we'll at least until August when I get married. I am sad to see my initials go - My dad and I share the same ones.

Heather said...

Hi Kelly! I have been reading your blog for a month or so now. I love it so much and I cannot tell you how much it has ministered to me. So many ways. You are such an amazing woman of God and I think we have so much in common. I am on the "trying to have a baby journey" too, and you are very encouraging. I am praying for you and hope you have a wonderful trip!

Stephanie said...

I love you too Kelly!! Isn't it fun to be blog friends? Your diaper cake is totally cute and so are the petit fours...I could eat a million of those things! I love them!

Kelly, I am so looking forward to your vacation for your sake! You are in such need of a break and some time away from reality. I'm just thrilled to know that you and Scott will get some time alone to rest...I bet you're counting down the days and hours, huh? Know that I will be praying for you and asking the Lord to just bless you beyond belief while you're there and when you return. And how about that beach towel to wrap up in?? Faith is so sweet and now you'll remember how loved you are in blog-land while you're away! Hope your day has been great Kelly!

Love,
Stephanie

2 days? Can you believe it??? You are going to have such fun and it is so due!

Shannon said...

Cute diaper cake!! Are you all ready for your trip?!!?? I'm getting off at noon today for my pedicure and to pack! :)

Nicole M Wood said...

That is one of the cutest diaper cakes that I have ever seen. I would have never put a feather with that, great idea. I love it. Plus red and black is my favorite. You should so get into making them.

I know that you are so busy with your trip, I hope that you have a blast. Try not to think of us here in ARKANSAS, while you are on the beach. I think that it is suppose to rain the entire time you are gone.

Can't wait for pictures.

Fran said...

Hey sweet kelly!
Have a fabulous time on your trip!
Cannot wait for pix! Please know that I'll be praying for your safety, your fun, and your return trip home.

Big hugs~
Fran

Katie said...

Oh, girl, I am with you...I could definitely eat my weight in petit fours...oh and did I hear you say "chips" to go with 'em...I'm so there! The diaper cake looks so adorable...I'm in love with the feathers on top! And the towel...oh mercy...how I love anything and everything monogrammed...(sigh) :o)
