(sadly not pictured - oops), Bean and I got started on the decorations. We may have gone the slightest bit overboard but, really, can you ever have too many streamers?
We also had plenty of nibbles ready for our guests...
including the most delicious cupcakes in the universe from Magnolia Bakery ( I don't even like cupcakes so this is saying something!)
Derek came too...voila...c'est moi!
*Sandra took the above photo ^ and has posted some beautiful photos on her blog too.
We had set up a little photobooth in the kitchen so people could take their own pictures.
some of the photo-booth pictures...
Jenga, which I lost right after this photo was snapped.

*thanks to Kristin for commandeering my camera so I could actually be in some of the photos ;)
