Showered




My sister-in-law Katie threw a fiesta themed shower. Lucky me...I got to wear the sombrero!




This picture is so funny to me. We were telling Lily-who is the daughter of my friend Amanda at work-about the baby in my tummy. She put her hands on her hips and said "Well I just like to see...". She wanted to "see" the evidence that there was an actual baby in there.

Fun shower games and holding my cousin's new baby. So ready for that!



I was so impressed with Melissa's hosting skills. She made chocolate dipped brownies, and really yummy parfaits. She also had cute bubble gum bottle favors.























How cute is this invitation my friend Shay made?! I'm so lucky to have such great friends and family. A big thanks to everyone for their generosity to me and my expanding family.

As a side note, and for a future thought, Uppercase Living recently did a blog post about creative shower decor using vinyl lettering and embellishments. I love how they repeated the elephant design on the favor boxes and used alphabet letters on the tin.

I'm glad that you got some really cute stuff. I bet you are beyond excited to get your little tyke here.I hope everything goes well. On your side note, I love those elephants!!! All the nurses called Emmet peanut, so we have taken on an elephant theme. Which is fine with me elephants are my favorite.
