Custom Cuts: Staying Neutral

7 Mar

Another baby is coming… this time it’s my friends Cate and Tim from college!

Cate and I go way back.  All the way back to the 2nd floor of St. Monica’s freshman year, in fact.

Cate proceeded to follow me for the next two years.  She was right down the hall Sophomore year in Sheehan.  Then just a quick trip upstairs Junior year in the apartments (St. Clare for those who are keeping track).

Every year I showed up, there she was.  She was such a stalker.  No, not really!  It was always great to look down the hall and see Cate’s smiling face.

What about senior year you ask?  Well, we did one better than living down the hall from one another.  We tackled racial stereotypes and “The Real World” for our Senior Project.  Yes, we really did.  It was awesome.  And involved really, really long nights, loads of coffee and really great stories – one of which involved Cate in the hospital and me getting dropped off on main campus in the back of a cop car.  She was okay, I was embarrassed and, no, I didn’t do anything illegal.  The full story is for another day.

In any event, Cate and I have stayed friends and I was beyond thrilled when she and Tim moved to Northern Virginia.  Now we get to make ladies who lunch dates, impromptu dinner outings and…

baby showers!

I was so excited to be able to do the cupcakes and cookies for Cate’s shower this past weekend.  Since Cate and Tim aren’t finding out if the Bebe is a boy or a girl (yay!), the colors are modern neutral – silver sage, chocolate brown and tan.  and, of course, you can’t go wrong with polka dots.

Hopefully everyone enjoyed the treats as much as I enjoyed making them for such a special lady… and the little one to come!

(PS – Too bad I forgot the camera to take pics of the set-up.  One of these days I’ll get the hang of this!)

    Kristina, thank you so much for sharing your talents with us and making the fabulous treats for the shower! Everything was adorable chic – it’s no surprise everyone is still talking about them. So glad you could be a part of it, it means so much to Tim & I. Love you!
