Baby Shower

My friend is having her first girl after 3 boys! So me and two other ladies in the ward are throwing her a baby shower :). The theme is based off of this picture found here (Celebrations at Home - more pictures if you click on the link).
So light pink and birdies. I made these invites:
Pretty proud/exited about how they turned out. First I created it in word, then saved it as a PDF. But blogger doesn't let you upload pdf's, so I searched high and low for a way to upload it as a jpg or convert it to a jpg. The "upload" type websites I tried didn't work for some reason. And most of the "convert" websites have you download a free version, but then when you convert it, they stamp your jpg image w/ their company's huge, obnoxious watermark. THIS website, however, did not do that: Convert Image to PDF, which is the one I used for the above jpg. Hooray! (Oh and I grayed out some of the details for privacy on here. That wasn't something the website did.)
-p.s. Apparently this other website ZAMZAR worked, too. I just didn't realize it till I checked my email and saw that I had a bunch of emails from them (from all the times I tried to do it, but thought it wasn't working ;). So there you go. Two websites that worked well.

I am now in the process of making my first tissue paper pom poms. They look so easy, but they're a little tricky, I must say.

I've also decided (probably a little unwise, but I like cooking) to make 4 pink desserts: PINK velvet bread pudding, pink meringues, cupcakes w/ pink frosting, and (cross your fingers) some marshmallow pops first dipped in homemade salted caramel and then dipped in pink candy melts (to cover up the tan color of the caramel - so caramel for flavor, pink for color). We'll see how it all goes.

I'll take pictures and post about it all... soon? Maybe when it's all done and I can breath again.

wow! That's a lot of cooking! I can't wait to see the pictures. Those marshmallow things sound interesting...but good.
