Twin Party

My wonderful bff and family threw me a small get together to celebrate the imminent arrival of our twin boys.  It was so nice to see everyone and get to spend some time with each of them as I know after the boys are here, we may disappear into a black hole for a while.

When they asked me what I wanted in terms of a party, the first thing I told them was simple.  No games, no decor…just some desserts and drinks and a place for us to get together.  Of course, they made it the most elegant and delicious “simple” celebration possible!

My sister, Sara, put together a sangria bar, complete with all the fruit and garnish you could ask for, even jalapenos!

I am so lucky to have these wonderful women in my life.  Thank you to Lauren, my sisters, my mom and my mother in law for knowing me so well and making it the perfect “twin party!” img_8890
