Weekend Recap: Family Love

This weekend was all about family. More specifically, celebrating my little sister B's upcoming wedding. The wedding isn't until the end of August but because she and her fiancé live in Saskatchewan (stupid law school, counting down the days/months til she moves back) we are celebrating as she makes it home for visits. And this weekend was the first time that both my sisters and I were all in town together in at least a year. I think. However long it has been doesn't matter because it has been a loooong time and because we were all here we (meaning mom) decided to have her wedding shower.

Friday night we had a big family dinner at mom's house and caught up over lasagna and pie. On Saturday we did some shopping and then went for pedicures - hello Spring! I conveniently forgot my flip flops and got to wear some awesome flippers into the nearby florist where we went after to discuss wedding flowers. Fun times. But actually it really was fun times. I love spending time with my sisters.

I have only ever wanted two gnomes in my life and this is #2. I love him. I wonder if I will
break down and actually give him a new home

Sunday was Shower Day. My mom and older sister G nailed the decorations (not my forte) and we had quite the spread. I was in charge of the cake and punch so obviously spent some time on Pinterest. We ate, played games, ate, drank, opened gifts, ate and then nibbled a bit more as we packed up the leftovers. Total success! All my pics are on my real camera (not that this means they are any good) but I plan on doing a more in depth post just on her shower.

Here is a sneak peak of the cake I made for the shower!

 I hope you had amazing weekend B💜
