I know I’ve been M.I.A for a while-but within good reason.  My business has been keeping me quite busy these days so Im not complaining.  I do have several post I have lined up to share soon- one of which are the photos from my lil sisters bridal shower I hosted in my home this past weekend.  We had a blast!  It was a lovely brunch and fancy hats were required.  

The beautiful bride-to-be: 

We set up a fabric backdrop and had everyone stop and take their photo before entering the party (my sisters & I of course had to test it out 1st)

In other news my Westie- McKenzie is in the doggie hospital.  I took her to the emergency room yesterday because she lost control of her back legs and was dragging them around crying & yelping-it broke my heart.  She unfortunately has a slipped disc that can not be repaired surgically due to her age.  So they are keeping her at the vet and giving her morphine & anti-inflammitory meds.  She also has other medical issues going on-including an unidentified infection and pancreatitis. *sigh*  There is a possibility we will be having to face the difficult decision to put her to sleep if she does not respond to the meds.
I had a complete meltdown after leaving her at the vet yesterday-but trying not think about it today. Hopefully we will hear good news soon!

Ok-so I don’t want to leave you on a depressing note- so I’ll leave you with a quick photo of the amazing ombre cake we indulged in at my sisters shower:

    Welcome back, Amanda. Congratulations to your sis. She is definitely a lovely bride-to-be. Looks like a fun shower too and love that pretty ombre cake! Did you made it?

    On another note, I am so sorry to hear about your dog’s condition. She sounds like she is in a lot of pain. How old is she? I hope the medicines help.
