Weekending

Good Morning! Long time no see, right? My apologies for the silence here but August has proven to be as busy as I thought it would. Here's what we were up to this weekend.

Bridal shower prep

I pretty much spent the weekend neck deep in bridal shower prep which included painting table runners because I couldn't find exactly what I wanted. They ended up being much easier than I thought.

In Burley

On Friday night I went to Burley all by myself! Z-cakes stayed home with N8tr0n so that I could focus on throwing the shower without feeling guilty for neglecting her.

Nesting boxes!

And while I was gone, N8tr0n + Z-cakes built nesting boxes for our hen house!

For the bridal shower

The cupcakes I made for the shower were possibly my best yet. I'll be posting more pictures of the shower later, pinkie promise.

On Sunday I was so wiped out from the shower that I did nothing. Seriously. I did feed Z-cakes because she's happier when we do that but otherwise, nada. Today begins my full fledged campaign to put the house in order before N8tr0n's parents arrive. I can't decide whether giving myself two full weeks is pessimistic or a little too optimistic.

In other news, Z-cakes has taken to putting her baby dolls here:

Look out for the zombie babies Z!

N8tr0n and I find it terrifying.
