Baby Shower Oct 8

Yesterday I was spoiled by my friends and family members at my baby shower! I had such a fantastic time and feel so blessed and overwhelmed by the love and support for this upcoming little bundle of joy. It was such a great turnout of about 30 of my favorite ladies... the activities were so unique. Everyone decorated a onesie with fabric and guessed baby's due date. I still need to wash and upload pics of all the personalized outfits. What a fun idea! I loved all the little details and unique touches throughout the party... modern jungle theme in the nursery colors: blue, yellow, white and green. Thanks to everyone who came from out of town! Belly shots are at 36+ weeks :)

Rachel Zoe's New Pad

How beautiful is Rachel Zoe's new casa? My favorite room is her master bedroom... that bedframe and hanging pendant light are perfect together! Even her little one's nursery is chic!

Fun Coasters

I've broken all but 2 of my ceramic Anthropologie coasters :( 
Time to get some cute (non breakable) letterpress ones designed on etsy! 

 $10 for 8 seems like a pretty good deal!
