Little Monster Baby Shower

My baby shower was beyond my expectations. My family and hubby's family went above and beyond to do this beautiful shower. Every detail was just perfect! And my favorite part.... The food! It was so delicious! I ate so much, I don't regret it. We also got a lot of gifts, this baby boy is spoiled already! He is truly blessed to be coming into this family that has so much love to give. Here are a few pictures from my shower!

DIY Baby Shower Trophy Bottles!

In every baby shower you have games and for the games you have prizes. Well aside from the nice prize I thought it would be unique to make bottle trophys! Something to make it fun and cute and easy to remember! It's so easy and cheap to do as well!

Walmart, First Essentials 3-pack bottles.
Michaels, wooden stands. 
Michaels, Spray paint in flat white, gold, silver and copper.

With a hot glue gun or any real good sturdy glue, glue the bottle on the wooden stands.

I decided to paint it flat white before so it can have a nice base and allow the color to stay on better.

Lastly spray on color! All there is left is to add some stickers that read 1st, 2nd & 3rd place! Easy and cheap. Enjoy!

We're Moving!

We've always been very open to going anywhere we possibly can, however we never expected such a huge opportunity. The hubby got orders to England and we are officially going to be moving there in April! It was such an out of nowhere type of shocking news. We are looking forward to it yet at the same time very sad because it will be right after our baby boy is born and our family will have to be very far and won't be able to enjoy him as much. I will however try to bring him back as much as possible. Our lives are going to take a complete 360 change from what we're used to. 

We've talked plenty of times of trips to take out there but it always seemed so impossible. It's been years or trying and nothing, so having this present itself and for us to be able to do it with our baby boy along is a dream come true. It will be hard to adapt to a new life but we will make the best of it. 

We will try to take this huge opportunity to visit all throughout Europe as much as we possibly can and as often too. I want to be able to enjoy and keep ourselves entertained. I mean how often can someone say they've lived in Europe? It's all going so fast, we just can't wait! See you soon England!

Anyone live in England? Recommend any places for us to visit?
