  2. Mimi,

    Cute baby shower decorations! Mmm, "National Cheeseburger Day"! We ate at Steak & Shake on Saturday. We shared an Original Double Steak Cheeseburger and fries with a chocolate milk shake. That's always plenty for us and it was so yummy! I think I could eat cheeseburgers every day!

  7. Someone made a diaper cake like that for my daughter-in-law's baby shower. It was really cute but with yellow decorations since they didn't know boy or girl.
