Baby Bag Party

I recently received an invite from my colleagues, who are hosting a very creative baby shower for me that's truly right up my alley. In the near future, we will be going to 1154 Lill Studio where I will get to create my very own, custom diaper bag!

Here is the super-cute invite:

This past summer I took my sister to 1154 Lill Studio for her birthday, and we each made a Grace clutch that I just love. Here is mine:

This time I'll get to create a even bigger, better baby bag so I'm just giddy. From the looks of it online, I think the Susan looks like a great option.
And although I will definitely want to check out the look and feel of all the fabrics in person, I already put together an idea online of the direction I might go with my bag. This one uses: Soho Grey, Sea Spray and Olive Zebra.
I can't wait until I get to celebrate with my generous coworkers and to create something all of my own to tote around the necessities for Baby C.

Knights to Remember

This weekend we celebrated my 30th birthday, planned thoroughly & thoughtfully by my loving husband, Dave. On Friday, he surprised me with dinner reservations at Table Fifty-Two along with two extra dinner guests, both of my sisters Jill & Jessica.

The company was great and the feast was scrumptious including southern specialties such as goat cheese biscuits, deviled eggs, fried green tomatoes, mac n cheese and collard greens... and those were just the sides!

If you are not familiar with Table Fifty-Two, Co-owner & Chef Art Smith is the personal chef to Oprah and he was also featured on the first season of Top Chef Masters. Reservations generally need to be made months in advance so I was blown away by this thoughtful dinner :-)

The next "knight" we had a truly unique experience where about 15 of us headed out to Medieval Times for dinner and a tournament. We took a limo just to "class" it up a bit and dined (with our hands) on dragon blood soup (tomato bisque), baby dragon (roasted chicken), dragon ribs (spare rib) and potatoes. I also had the largest glass chalice of virgin daiquiri on earth.

Sadly, our Blue Knight lost his duel...

...but the night was definitely a winner!


About Me

My photo
I'm a St. Louis native, but I have been living in Chicago since 2005 and am loving every windy minute of it. I enjoy cooking (more-so eating), home decorating and really anything creative. I'm a supporter of DIY & handmade goods, a fledgling foodie and a connoisseur of kitsch. I spend my days filling online shopping carts, emptying them and repeating the process all over again. Most of all I love spending time with my husband, Dave, our first child, Claire and my dog, Louie.
