Ooh, La, La!

Well, it was never my intent to take this week off from blogging. Part of the problem is that my camera has lost it's battery, and I have no earthly idea where it is. It was with us in New Orleans, but not in DC, and now, I have nothing to show from either! Such is life. However, I do have these lovelies to "ooh and ahh" over from a shower not too long ago.

This was actually my sweet sister's bridal shower. I know you're waiting to see pics from her wedding, but you'll have to wait a few more days. This will be a good sneak peek of what's to come!

Because she got married down in New Orleans, I wanted to bring in a bit of the French Quarter to those who might not make it all the way down to Louisiana for the wedding.

We had all of my sister's favorite finger foods,
including smoked salmon crudites and delicious chicken salad.

Maxie B's made us a caramel cake to die for...
embellished to the nines with little fleur de lis.

It was my big sister's only shower,
so we loved being able to pamper her with lots of goodies.

My sweet grandmother was (as always) the life of the party,
and we were so happy to have her there.
