Last Sunday I had my girlfriends over for an autumn breakfast in our backyard to celebrate the arrival of my baby girl. Luckily a few minutes before they all arrived the rain stopped! But we would have had fun anyway. We shared some delicious pastries my girlfriends baked: pear and chocolate tart, croissants, maple and walnut pie, madeleines, date cake, chocolate cake, citrus salad… on a beautiful table my friend Mrs. Peasy styled! I took care of the flowers station for a little workshop we had after breakfast. At first I wanted to have someone come and teach us how to make flower crowns, but it was a last minute idea and had a hard time finding someone available for that day. So I decided to watch a few tutorials and find images for inspiration on Pinterest, went to the flowers market on Friday and filled the moses basket with the beautiful flowers I found according to my fall color palette. It was a success! We all had so much fun making the crowns and turns out it wasn’t too difficult too make especially for all those crafty ladies!
Now let’s have a baby! I am 39 weeks and 3 days, my due date is this Sunday. Today is my birthday, I am 32 and it would be the most wonderful gift if she showed her face tonite!
I hope you had a great Halloween weekend! Here are a few photos of Lula in her handmade costume (I took the morning after). She is obsessed with planes lately, I think “avion” is the word she says the most during the day, (well after “I want…” ) so I thought it would be fun if she was a little aviator for Halloween! I made the airplane with cardboard and paint. It was fun to make and she loved it! She kept playing with it during the week, jumping in, pretend she was flying. Then came Halloween day and she refused to put it on for trick or treating… she’s been a little grumpy after her naps lately so it was impossible to get her to wear it. But hey, that’s life with a toddler right?! So we got together with a few friends families and went trick or treating anyway, we still got her to wear the helmet and goggles and me and my big belly pretended to be a cloud with a rainbow (imagine me on the way to my friend’s house in the car…haha). Lula had so much fun picking out candies and chocolates at the houses and we stopped for a good hour in front of a house with a dj for a dance party with a bunch of people, that was the best! Watching toddlers dancing is seriously the funniest thing ever.
Now I can rest! Baby girl is coming in 3 weeks! I am 37 weeks pregnant today, time flies but really this month feels the longest!!!
Adventures in the woods for us, halloween costume making and pumpkin carving for us + 2 birthday parties to attend. Busy busy!
