I am SO excited to go home to MPLS this weekend for A & K’s baby showers/housewarming party. I spent all last weekend shopping for baby stuff and I think I started to go a bit overboard, but when it comes to the new little sugarplumbabycakes I really can’t help myself.
I bought a few gifts from Target and Babies “R” Us, then I went over to Hallmark and Michael’s and bought gift boxes and wrapping paper and ribbons and decorations and all that lovely stuff. The end result was some of the most fantastic looking gifts I have ever wrapped, and I’ve wrapped a lot of gifts (I will post some pics a little later, you’ll see).
Now this part is really exciting…
There are going to be two showers, one on Saturday at A & K’s house and one on Sunday at G-Ma’s house, and the shower on Saturday is going to be a tie-dye party!! What a great idea, right!? I’m envisioning tie-dyed onesies EVERYWHERE! So, in an effort to educate myself in the art of tie-dyeing, I scoured YouTube for video tutorials on the hottest new tie-dyeing techniques (this is a good one “The Spiral” but beware of the rather ominous looking instructor). I’m a fast learner and naturally “artsy-crafty inclined” so I’m believeing those tutorials will pay off when it comes time to dye (I’ll post some pics after the shower, you’ll see).
And last but never least, I will be baking a tie-dye cake! (Kayla, I promise you, you are TOTALLY going to dig it). Since my flight arrives at 11:55pm on Friday night and the party is on Saturday afternoon (and because I really don’t want to try to take a big rainbow cake through airport security, and besides, I don’t have an oven in my little San Diego beach shack anyways LOL) I will be participating in some midnight baking, yessss.
