"I'm nesting," I replied.
"Huh?" he naturallly texted back.
"Like a momma bird, preparing her nest where her family will live."
No, there are no baby birds on the way, but with a husband on the way, I've kicked into that nesting mode of trying to get our home ready for where we will live when we get married. I was up late Saturday night because I had gone to Bed Bath and Beyond to buy some "homey" things like matching glasses, and new sterling silver silverware. I had finally had it with my mismatched random cups and cheap forks and knives that I had been using since first moving out of my parents. It was time I got big girl dinnerware. That nesting part of me wanted presentable things to provide guests when that point comes that we start hosting dinner parties.
But for now, I had my girlfriends coming over to bake cup cakes the next day so I was also in a mad rush to clean my place!
On Sunday, my friend Beth Morgan was in town, and she and our friend Kacy came over to catch up on some much needed girlfriend time. We all share a love of cupcakes, and photography, so naturally, as photographers we documented the whole night! Here's us being our silly girly selves!
I don't know what it is about cupcakes, but they just take me to a happy place every time. All is well in life when I'm eating a cupcake! And it's even better when you get to share it with girlfriends!
