You Get Me

Chapin and I are usually inseparable during the weekends, so I tried to stay particularly busy during this last weekend, when Chapin had to be in Florida on business. I spent Saturday and Sunday at my parents' house out in the suburbs, and with my sister, Gail, visiting from Tennessee, there was actually so much going on that I didn't miss him every waking minute.

Saturday I attended several baby-centric events. The first was a baby shower for one of my grad school friends, Sabrina, at a local restaurant called the Duluth Park Cafe. She is having a boy, Cole, due in May... on my birthday! I think that's pretty cool. Here is a picture of the four GSU grad school friends. Sabrina is the pregnant one. :)

After the shower, I picked up my sisters and we headed over to Katie and John's house for their daughter, Cadence's, third birthday party. Katie made a beautiful red velvet cake with a cute elephant on top, since Cadence is currently really into elephants. I gave her a Babar book for Christmas, not knowing the mom was killed off early in the story. Can you imagine my horror when Katie told me that Cadence stopped her to ask if the mom was ok? My face must have been so red.

Anyway, you can see more cakes from Katie, a wonderful baker/ marketing guru/ working mom, on her KT Kakes Facebook page.

The dress I wore for both occasions is from designer Nanette Lepore's 2009 Spring collection: the Nanette Lepore Painted Rose silk dress. This dress is particularly special to me because I also wore it to my godson, Finn's, Christening last year. The dress comes with a sparkly silver belt, and I paired it with my Charles David Curvaceous Platform Sandals in Berry and Blue Patent Charles David Sierra Satchel.
