M: the magazine for kansas city moms 02.25.2011



We love the style of M magazine so we were thrilled to be a part of their most recent issue. They always have the coolest baby and kid finds and inspiring and useful articles. We had so much fun during the shoot and interview.

baby shower for Carrie 02.24.2011


Ok, well after sharing where we found some of the fun party supplies, we couldn’t not share the actual party, right? We live for little celebrations like this…so, here are just a few pics from Carrie’s shower. Now we are just counting down the days until baby’s arrival. Hopefully Carrie will share some cute pics of her nursery someday soon, too…no pressure :).
