Hi, we're Kelly and Kaela, the mother-daughter team of Oodalollie.
Ooda-what?"Oodalollie" – It’s definition is simply an “expression of joy”. On this blog we will write about the things that bring us joy; sharing precious time with family, growing in our faith, cooking and eating, and having fun and creative projects scattered all over the house. We are not professional decorators and we can’t tell you how many calories are in our recipes, but we will share with you everyday life as we know it, and hope that this blog will inspire you to express a little joy of your own. Welcome to Oodalollie.

My daughter Kortney’s baby shower was this past week. While in the planning stage, we tried to come up with ideas for an evening that was not typical, and reflected Kortney’s personal and unique style.
We decided upon a funky and eclectic Anthropologie style theme. We set up several fun stations around the house and on the patio. We were fully decked out with a photo booth, s’mores station a D.I.Y. baby block activity and much more. We also had yummy food, beverages and desserts galore, all made by family members. The evening was a huge hit! We had 30 lovely ladies come out to support Kortney in her new adventure to mommy-hood.
As the evening progressed, our lovely friend Catalina led us in a mommy devotional, Kaela finished with a prayer over Kortney and we all got to watch her get teary eyed as she watched the video we made her. All in all, the evening was wonderful. Kortney is 37 weeks (full term) as of now and eager to start the next chapter in her life.
Thank you to all who came out and shared your love and support.
You can find more information HERE about the specific decor and activities at the shower. I hope some of our ideas inspire you to to get your creative juices flowing for your next shin-dig.
