Nikki's Baby Basket Shower!!

Baby Basket Shower for Nikki!!

March 20, 2011

I have a wonderful group of girlfriends from HS and College that try to get together each month. We always try to throw some kind of shower whenever someone is getting married, or having a baby. This year we were lucky enough to throw a baby basket shower for Nikki and baby Grayson!!!

A Basket Shower is where you are assigned different themes to complete your basket. There can be all sorts of things and you decide how much you want to spend. Some of the themes at the shower were Hospital, Nursery, Shoes, Books, Crib, Feeding, Bath Time, Mommy and Me, Beach, Blanket. I was giving the Diaper Basket!!

I got her a variety of things to use in a diaper bag or on the go in the car!!!

We had the shower at my apartments clubhouse, which turned out to be plenty of room to hold all the guest and gifts!! We each brought a dish to enjoy and had a amazing cake that was shaped like a babies stroller.

I hope Nikki enjoyed this wonderful shower; we are all so lucky to have her in our lives and to be able to share in this wonderful and amazing time of her life!!

Can’t wait to meet baby GRAYSON RUNNELS in JUNE!!!

St. Patty's Day

St. Patrick’s Day and Bunco all rolled into one!!

March 17, 2011

St. Patrick’s Day fell during the week of my Spring Break!!

It was a busy day of fun!!

During the day I met up with my sister and we laid out for a couple of hours at her pool and got plenty of sun to make up for not going to the beach on spring break this year. After the pool I rushed back to my place to get ready for my nightly activities.

That night I met up with some friends at On Tap to enjoy a few drinks before heading to play Bunco.

My friend Mandy and I left and headed out to Trussville for Bunco at Bonnie’s house!! She had taco salad and margaritas waiting for us all when we arrived. We sat around and enjoyed each other’s company before starting the first round. We were able to play two rounds of Bunco, unfortunately I did not win any money!!

Kristin’s Around the House Shower

March 13, 2011

One of my sisters friends is getting married this May, I had the privilege to be invited to her “Around the House” shower. My room for the house was the “BATHROOM”. I was very excited to have this room and had a great idea!!!

The GIFT!!!!

-Two towels with the monogram “MR” and “MRS” on them.

-Cute hand towel with the letter “B” for their last name.

-The toothbrush and soap holders!!

Everything was so organized and great!! The hostesses all did a wonderful job. The food was delicious. I ate too much!!!

At the shower they had every person write a piece of advice for the couple when they get married. Then they took all the sheets and put them together in a scrapbook. It was very cute and a wonderful idea.

My advice “Never go to bed angry or upset at the one you love.”

What I Live for......WEEKENDS!!!

Weekend full of fun!!

March 4-6, 2011

Let me just start off by saying this weekend was extra great because one of my closet sorority sisters from college was coming to town!!! My friend Sara aka SaSa came to spend the whole weekend with me. I have not spent this much time with her probably in 3 years so I knew it would be amazing!!!


Roberts Birthday Celebration

Robert and I met about 2 years ago and just recently have gotten closer than we used to be. Tonight we all got a big group of friends together to go out for his birthday!! We started the night off at one of his favorite places BWW!!! After dinner we all headed back to Chris’ place to have cake and just hang out and enjoy the night!!

Happy Birthday Robert!!!

Mandy and I SaSa and JaJa

Chris and I


It was very nasty today so we all were just planning to have a lazy day on the couch and watch movies all day and grill out that night. So while all the boys worked on their toys (AKA 4-wheelers and RZR) the girls laid on the couch watching movies all day!! That night we cooked a wonderful dinner and just hung out at the house because it was so nasty outside.


We woke up to a beautiful day, which meant it was time for some riding!! So we all loaded all the coolers, food, and 4-wheelers up and were ready to hit the road!! We had beautiful weather that we stayed all day and well into the night!!!

I enjoyed the weekend not only with friends but also with my SaSa!! Can’t wait for her to come back again soon!!!
