Baby Shower #1
Saturday was my first baby shower of three. My mom and sister threw it for me and it was fabulous. I LOVED their decorations/theme. My mom was clever and made sure to sneak in some pumpkins, since I’m all about those this time of year!
The food was delicious as always. My mom and sister made everything: roasted shrimp, fruit and cheese platter, bruschetta (double points), veggies tray, tomato-basil-mozzarella-chicken skewers, curried chicken salad sammies/ lettuce wraps.
And of course dessert was the bomb! We all know how much I like frosting, so my sister made sure to pipe generous portions and even brought me containers of extra frosting- of course homemade! I’m a little ashamed to admit that the vanilla has since been eaten entirely and only a small amount of the chocolate is left… looks like I’ll be on a sugar detox this week!!!
So good! Grandma was enjoying her’s too 😉 Check out the story behind the magnets on the fridge HERE HERE & HERE. I’ll spare you the pictures of me opening gifts. I feel like no really likes that part, but I guess it’s more fun at a baby shower, seeing cute onsies and clothes than at wedding showers where it’s dishes and linens.
I started my 33 week of pregnancy Saturday (I owe you guys a preggo update post!) and the bump is certainly growing! I had family and high school friends as guests and it was a good mix and number of people. I feel like huge showers just feel overwhelming and there’s not enough time to talk to everyone as much as you’d like. I couldn’t find a picture of me and Kristin on my camera, so I’m REALLY hoping my mom has one on hers! But here’s my grandma and the grandma-to-be <3
I had a wonderful time and got some great gifts for Baby W. Some off my registry, some from experienced mom’s and some beautiful homemade items. I can’t thank my mom and sister enough. I hope I’m half the mom mine is and I hope my sister gets hitched and has babies soon so our kids can be BFF’s like we are 😉 (Just kidding Kris, no pressure!) This make me even more excited for my next shower and celebrating the mini human I’m growing inside me… it’s kind of crazy and I still kind of can’t believe it…
How was your Saturday?
