:: Mother's Day Weekend ::

Wednesday, May 22, 2019

So after Skip's First Fiesta on Cinco De Mayo, it was Mother's Day weekend...

My first Saturday not at Sugar in weeks and weeks, so first of all I was stoked to have a Saturday off. We were helping host a couples "BABY-Q" shower for friends Hope & Derrick!

Several couples all went in together to make it a great dinner and we just hosted it out at the shop. I literally threw things together the day of and rounded up party things I already had + flowers out of the yard, etc...It turned out great, everything was perfect and theeeeen the MONSOON came! We had terrible thunderstorms that kept us inside most of the evening, but here's a few pics I snapped before the rain began to pour...

I have known Hope for nearly twenty years now. She's the first cousin of one of my life long best friends and also the first cousin of a guy I dated for years. We became close, basically like family and now she's close to so many others in our crew, along with her husband who works with one of the guys. Hence why it made sense to host a couples shower! 

Hope was born with a mild form of cerebral palsy, a group of permanent movement disorders that appear in early childhood. I am so proud of all she has accomplished in life! From getting her GED to finding love...working one, sometimes two jobs and now becoming a mom.

It just goes to show that no matter what circumstances you're born into, YOU ultimately decide the path your life will take. She's created a life she loves and again, we couldn't be happier for them! 
We can't wait to meet baby Jase in July and he's already loved by so many.

our high school soccer team had just won the state championship (my bff's brother in law is the soccer coach and nephew a senior on the team) so we were all ECSTATIC and ready to celebrate that evening. everyone had a blast , it was likely one of THE most fun baby showers we've ever been to! bahaha

The next day we had a low key Mother's Day. I took a nap , which I never do, and then we grilled burgers at Chad's parents and the boys all had a blast playing outside.

it was definitely a much needed, relaxing day!

Next up...the week spent at the ballfield.

no time to siesta, it's Skip's first fiesta!

Tuesday, May 21, 2019

My nephew, Skip, turned ONE on May 7th and had the most adorable "First Fiesta" on Cinco de Mayo. It was the perfect Sunday! Let's start with a few of his one year pics I took...

now onto the F I E S T A...

cute invitations from FIG in Uptown Greenwood
My sister decided to have it at her in-laws gorgeous home on Main Street in Abbeville since they have the perfect backyard, nice and roomy.

This colorful balloon garland is from FIG in Uptown Greenwood and was a labor of love. I do seriously love hosting and helping with parties, so I told Courtney just to let me help with the balloons and some of the other decor.

 I went over about noon that Sunday and helped her set up before the party at 3. She already had such an awesome vision, I was just extra hands ready to help set up!

Courtney bought the cutest book, "Dragons Love Tacos" for everyone to sign as a guestbook when they first walked in...

the fun gift table...

the colorful bubble sticks are in a set from Walmart and such a great steal! They come in a pack of six for $3.97 and she ordered the tags from Etsy...

we had old canvas photos from years ago from my store, Sugar, that a photographer loaned us in exchange for advertising. Since moving locations the outdated framed canvas photos just sat there...UNTIL I decided to paint over them with chalkboard paint and use them as a chalkboard. YES.

This was the walking tacos chalkboard next to the food table...

the cookies may have been my favorite and were made by a local gal, Aly Smith at Anomalys Custom Sweets in Anderson, SC

Loved Mack & Skip's matching Chubbies swimsuits and my sister's cute top is from Sugar

my BuddyLove top is also sold out but from Sugar and I LOVED it.

ohhhhhh this baby. I could eat him up. SO PRECIOUS.

and loved by so many!

I like to caption this picture 
"When your Chubbies aren't quite short enough and you gotta show off that LEG!!!!"

most of the food was catered by our local Mexican restaurant, Mariah's. 

the water slide from Brown's Bounce Rentals was a HIT!

so thankful the rain held off and it was the perfect 80 degree afternoon...

cakes and cupcakes by Savannah at Corley's Market here in Greenwood

y'all her cupcake flavors and cakes are AMAZING. So yummy, then my sister made these cute little cupcake toppers of Skip's face and found the "Fiesta Time" ones at Hobby Lobby.

I purchased this outdoor wicker bar from Wayfair last year for Sugar's 10 year celebration and have used it soooo much. We used it as an actual beverage bar for a baby shower last weekend, but also here as a dessert bar. I made the tissue flowers and added a balloon swag to doll it up. So easy!

can you tell he loves his babysitters? 

they're the best!

water balloons for the win.

time for cake! his face during the entire "Happy Birthday" tripped. me. out. He was looking at us like we were ALL CRAZY! HA

sweet cousins...

Charlie hoarding all the candy from the pinatas...
