Baby Blues

 Sunday's outfit for the family baby shower I hosted for my cousin and her husband...

 I bought this white dress loving it but every event I wanted to wear it was some sort of wedding related event and I didn't want to wear white and steal away from the bride... This was perfect finally...

Trying a cat eye make up with the new eyeliner we bought last Friday night....

Dress, Earrings - Forever 21
Ring - From Turkey
Heels - Laundry

Linking up to MONDAY MINGLE after a long absence...
Check out the lovely posts at Bon Bon Rose Girls Blog.

It was a bit hectic and unrealistic to host a party that started at noon when my husband is gone playing tennis and for the first time I decided to make all the side dishes myself from scratch instead of buying from costco like I always do. The result was a bit crazy and of course I so was not ready by noon. I was done cooking and cleaning the kitchen but then I had to go and shower and get ready. I hate not being all ready to greet guests when they come even though it was just family still....
It turned out OK at the end I just couldn't spend any time with anyone until after lunch.
The guys swam with the kids in the pool twice so that kept them busy while we did couple traditional baby shower games for the parents to be...

Lots of Turkish side dishes made by my mom and myself...

The mommy to be requested shrimp and these came out great after a soak in sugar and salt!

I wanted to do this punch in blue but couldn't find a blue mix so it was yellow!
Sprite, White grape Juice, Lemon powder mix, sugar & 8 scoops of vanilla ice cream!

The happy parents to be....

My mom sew this mermaid bathing suit for my daughter and she LOVED it of course. When swimming she wears the tail to the back... I never got a chance to see what it looks like in the water but I bet it was super cute....
