Weekend Recap

We survived the weekend! We couldn't have asked for more perfect weather yeaterday for Baby C's baptism. The ceremony was lovely, and Mini K loved the fact that the chapel overlooks her school and most importantly the new school playground. She was qute disappointed that baby C merely had water "poured on his head" she was hoping for a full on dunking. Ahhh the joys of sisterly love!

I opted for a brunch buffet...mainly because I was doing all of the cooking. The menu ended up being:

an amazing coffee cupcake ..thanks Monogram Momma for trusting me with such a special recipe
my monkey bread recipe..think extra butter and sugar
cold pea and bacon salad
strawberry cheese ring...I make this for every event and it is always the first thing that is gone
sausage balls

My friend Dawn, the talent behind Monster Cookie Co. did these adorable cookie favors to match the invite. I love how they turned out!

And no Catholic baptism would be complete without alcohol so we had:
champagne cocktails
a bloody mary bar

Baby C was actually awake during the baptism and slepted during the kind of baby!

We were truly touched that everyone made the effort to attend.

I never thought I would say this, but I am ready for the week to many orders to deliver, a trunk show on Friday that we are looking forward to and our dear friend K is having baby girl #2 tomorrow...we cannot wait to meet her!
