MY cup of tea

Last wednesday we had a Cupp girls tea party. Well, that was the 'cover story' ... it was actually a small surprise baby shower for Laurie Cupp & baby Chloe. It was the cutest lil thing. The girls came in their dresses & we had tea, cookies, truffles & gifts. LOVE my family!

"you made more cupcakes?"

Not sure why I have been baking so much lately ... my only guess is because I am dieting to lose all my baby weight (is it still considered baby weight if it's really just losing the weight you gained because you ate so much while pregnant?). Anyways, found this recipe on Pinterest (where I find most of them) and HAD to try it out. Coffee cupcakes YUM. The more I bake the more I like to bake. I have so many recipes I want to try out. Unfortunately, I go back to work on Monday and am not sure if I will have as much time for it. Guess i'll MAKE time :)

a night w/o bottles & diapers

Last night Lance watched the little guy so that I could go out w/ my girls for the first time since the baby. It was sooooo nice. We were all so happy to be out we decided on not seeing a movie and just ended up sitting at a table talking for 4 hours. It was a little strange not having Judah with me. Or having to constantly stop the conversation for a feeding or diaper change. I am lucky to have such a wonderful husband & amazing friends. This morning it was just me and Judah because Lance went fishing with his brothers and nephew. Since I missed Jude so much last night I am spoiling him with attention today & we are having a FUN time :)

cuz luv

One of my favorite things in the world is how much my nieces & nephews love their lil' cousin. If they don't see him right away when they see me they are always asking where he is and then if they can hold him. I'm so excited that Judah has such wonderful cousins that I know will always love him. I took this picture after church right after Zoey got done holding him. Isaac said he could hold Judah by himself (he didn't need any help) ... he was right.

On Saturday Tim Karen Lance Judah and I all set out to visit some estate sales. We go some great finds for some even better prices. Afterward on a whim we went to downtown Northiville to visit the store RePurpose. I basically wanted EVERYTHING in the store. However we showed some restraint and stuck to our earlier finds. I'm already trying to plan another time that we can go to more estate sales. Until then we are having fun trying to find places in our house for our new old things.
