Golden Statues and Mini Cupcakes

Phew, what a day! Totally exhausted but very happy with a successful baby shower and relaxing Oscars viewing (with lots of couch commentary...Joan Rivers watch out).

I'm very grateful to Ryan and Kara for co-hosting the shower, and letting 15 perfect strangers come over to their place. Sarah was truly touched and I know it will help her get through these last tough weeks until the baby arrives. And how exciting to think we'll meet her daughter soon! A brand new life as spring arrives.

And I'm very excited that my parents will be here in a few weeks as well, it's always such a treat to have them here (thanks Ryan for getting a job!)

I'm also grateful to Cole for being patient as I freaked out about my last-minute party prep, and for assisting me in making the food and cleaning up. Sorry I'm such a freak :)

Last, I'm grateful for moments of inspiration that came in the 3+ hours of the Oscar telecast -- reminders that as tough as it can be, following your dreams can pay off; the John Hughes tribute which made me all sad and nostalgic, but smile when I saw that Brat Pack reunion; and I can't help but be happy that a woman FINALLY won a director's award. About time! Next up, Kara and Lindsay :)
