party time

First of all, happy Mother's Day :)

Yesterday, Austin's mom threw me a shower and it was great.
She spent hours combing local thrift stores for antique purses, scarves, hats, gloves, etc. to decorate the tables.

The food was delicious - they had amazing pasta dishes (I'm in love with all things pasta)
chocolate covered strawberries, little chocolate cups filled with a sort of whipped cream, 
and a lovely cake shaped like an umbrella (get it? haha).

Austin did an awesome job of looking really creepy in every picture...

Doesn't help that he needs a haircut real bad.

It was tons of fun and everyone was so generous. 
We got a bunch of amazing gifts - this was a bigger shower so I won't be sharing them with you.
Aus and I spent about two hours washing, sorting, assembling, and storing all of our gifts.

Here are a few more cute pictures
Love these girls!! 

Hopefully I'll be able to share a few more pictures soon. 
My lovely friend Sara brought her camera along and she always takes great pictures.

turn that frown upside down,

P.S. Twenty eight days. Crazy.
