Life Lately

My favorite folks from the ICU night shift
Hello Friends!
I have been meaning to come around here more often. Still haven't updated about my trip to Ireland and Lebanon... have lots of nursing stories I could share... running stories too... but life has been busy. Life has been busy with the mundane and it's been a little wearying. I can't seem to catch up on sleep or social time with friends or quality time with Chris. It all just seems like I am pulled bit by bit in a bunch of directions and only small pieces of everything are getting done. This weekend I will be heading down to L.A. to see a play that my bff Helena has been helping direct. It will be fun to have a road trip with the gang and see what Helena has been putting her heart and soul into these past few months. Still, it makes for a busy weekend and I've been rushing around all day in order to get things done before we head off bright and early tomorrow.

Oh well... one day at a time, right?

On a more fun note.... I do have a happy event to share with you all. Recently, I was lucky enough to have a baby shower at my house for a very well liked co-worker of mine. This is her first baby and because she let slip that her family was not planning on doing a shower for her... we went all out. I spent a few days looking up DIY blogs and photos on flickr for inspiration and I must admit that the end result... albeit a ton of work... was totally great. It was a wonderful day and I was so glad to have been able to host it at my house. It gave me an opportunity to be crafty and do some blog hunting for fun ideas :)
So without further ado... pictures from Baby C's Shower 

Best idea ever... baby shower potluck style :)
Our adorable onsies after they were decorated by everyone at the party!
Baby S wanted to join in the present unwrapping... too freaking cute!
It's a boy!!!

Another successful house party and a wonderful day spent with my favorite nurses! Hope you all are enjoying your weekend!!


  1. It's gorgeous. Way to go, lady!

  2. Andi, as Oprah says, "The love is in the details."

    It's obvious here. Beautiful.

  3. Wonderful! I've always wondered how to make a diaper cake!
