Build your baby’s library with a book themed baby shower! From decorations and games to favors and food, this storybook theme works for boys or girls.
I think my SIL may have begun planning my book themed baby shower the moment we announced that I was pregnant. And she couldn’t have landed on a more perfect theme, seeing as I was an English major and have always been a bookwork. (If you’ve been a reader for a while, you know how much my home office/library means to me).
From the book themed invitations to her decorations, games, food and favors, each and every detail was perfectly paired with some of my favorite childhood books! I arrived extra early the day of the shower to take a bunch of pictures, because I knew I’d want to share all of the cute details with you!
These pie recipes are as easy as they are delicious! From classic apple to unique, yummy chocolate pecan pie, each of these dessert ideas is sure to please.
Each of these pie recipes sounds so delicious, I had a hard time not drooling all over my keyboard while I was putting this collection together! While I’ve only baked a couple of pies myself, I see this habit changing in the very near future, because I want to try each and every one of these! From your classic Dutch apple pie and fruit pies to rich and decadent mint brownie and S’more pie, so many of these recipes look easy as, well, pie!

Happy 2018 friends! I realize that we’re nearly two weeks into the year already, but after battling a nasty cold since December 27th, I’ve had a rather slow start! I am finally feeling better and getting back into my writing and blogging routine.
As I begin a new year, I always like to take a look back at the previous one. Sometimes I get so caught up in the projects on my current to-do list that I forget some of the neat things we did earlier in the year, and it’s also helpful to look back at the data and statistics to see what you all loved throughout the year! It’s always fun, and sometimes surprising, to see which projects and posts were the favorites. So let’s kick back and take a look at the Top 10 Posts of 2017!
