First Time for Everything

I'm throwing my first shower for some of our good friends this Saturday and I couldn't be more excited!
I had kind of forgotten that it was so soon after we got back from vacation, so this week is kind of hectic but I'm loving it! On Sunday, I planted a ton of flowers for the deck and picked up some tiki torches to ward the bugs away.  I was waiting to pick up pizza for dinner and stopped into the Dollar store in the meantime and found the most adorable paper lanterns! The deck is going to look fantastic when it's all pulled together.

Here are a few photos to get you as excited as me :)

We have a yard! With green grass and everything!!

Potted flowers (I'm quite proud of them)

I also brought back sand from Belize to make these cute centerpieces:

I can't wait to show you all the details from Saturday! My husband, Dave, quit his job before we went on vacation so that he could have a couple weeks off before school starts. And my car conveniently broke down right before we left so I've been driving his car to work, leaving him stranded at home. Luckily, he's been awesome at helping me prepare for the shower. Yesterday he baked his first cake! (Which I plan on making into cake balls but don't think he's quite ready for all those steps) Hopefully we'll have it all pretty and ready by Saturday!

I'm so jealous of your deck! We have nothing in our backyard and J and I are always dreaming of a deck to watch the sunset, read a book, drink a beer or whatever! Good luck with the shower!!

The deck looks awesome. We got some of those paper lanterns for our umbrella too!
