Feathering the Nest

Last weekend, I jetted away to Nashville, TN, to celebrate and help host the baby shower of one of my very best friends, Aubs.  I had the BEST weekend, filled with shopping, dining, baking, visiting with family, and catching up with all my college girlfriends!  
Some pics from the weekend!

shopping in Nashville - new boots! (50% off!)

lunch at CPK

Carter's nursery is ready!

The morning of the baby shower, I needed to bake 72 cupcakes, so I hired my two sweet-as-pie nieces to help!  Their pay was to get to decorate and enjoy their own special cupcake ;)
  We had so much fun and I think the cupcakes turned out so cute!  (The theme of the shower was "Feathering the Nest")
