Home Tour - Our First Home

We moved out of our beloved first home few months ago. From the perfect house in not-so-perfect-for-us location to completely-ugly-total-fixer-upper house in the most-perfect-for-us location. While we have been trying to make it livable and lovable, I look back to the pictures of our old home from time to time. I admit, our family is totally enjoying the short commutes and extra family time, but first home is first home, right? It's special. More so for us since it was in super pristine state when we bought it and all I did was accessorize it to make it look better. I don't have a post that shows each room of the house so here are some pictures for you.

 My heart is heavy now! Miss that home, so many memories!

Have a good weekend everyone. I hope to start showing our new-old house and what we have been doing for past 8 months pretty soon.

Baby Shower Printable for Girl - Guess Baby's Birthday

It's been a long time I posted anything here. We moved and things haven't settle down yet, so I took a long break from blogging. Hopefully I will start back up and show you a lot of things I am planning in the new abode.

Past weekend we planned a quick shower for a friend who is due with her 2nd baby soon. We only had 3-4 days to plan and prepare so we didn't do a lot, just ordered take out food, decorated a little, played baby shower games and had lot of fun. I realized the spontaneous get-togethers are quite fun since we don't stress so much about the arrangements. We used what we had on hand mostly for decorations. I did make a girly diaper cake and a little printable, oh did I say our friend is having a girl? So yeah, it was super girly, everything pink and gray with a little touch of yellow. I would have gone with other pastels than pink if she was having a 2nd girl but her first one was a boy so I knew she could handle some pink. Or a lot of it. Here is a quick look of that pinky pink diaper cake, sorry for the poor picture quality.

About the printable, it is a game that all guests will guess when the baby will be born. Obviously there is no winning during the shower, but mom can save it as a keepsake. I tried to find free printable for this online but I couldn't, so I made one. I thought I would share it so anyone looking for free printables for a last minute shower could use it. Since this is a monthly printable, I made for each month for the rest of the year. I will try to make some boy versions and post them soon.

Hope you like them. Please leave a note in the comments if you used these so I know that they are actually being used.
