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!

It's a Girl decoration

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.

Baby Shower Food

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!!!

Baby Shower TableCupcake!

So good! Grandma was enjoying her’s too πŸ˜‰ 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.

33 Week Baby Bump

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

Grandmas at Shower

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 πŸ˜‰ (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…

    • The Ragnar one is hilarious, haha. I ate way too much food throughout the day at the shower, but it was all so good! Plus, grazing is the only way I can eat these days πŸ˜‰

  1. Ahh I am with you on the bruschetta. Any one who makes me bruschetta get double points with me. πŸ˜‰

    This is such a beautiful baby shower! I especially love the color scheme, and I think it is awesome how much was homemade. <3

  2. That is so funny your sister sent the frosting home, I use to do the same thing, I decorated cakes for people for awhile and my family would want the left over frosting cause it was homemade too. I have totally ruined my husband because he won’t eat any other frosting. Love the pictures of your shower I bet you got some really great gifts. It won’t be long now for your little one to arrive. Keep us posted and I hope you’ll continue to join in the Weekly Wrap!

    • Yes, my family is totally spoiled with homemade frosting. We got some great gifts, and like the food, I loved the handmade ones- blankets, booties, hats, toys. I can’t wait for her debut either!

  3. It looks like a lovely shower and the food looks delicious. I agree in that smaller crowds are so much better. They decorations are very pretty and I really like the white pumpkins. I am addicted to frosting and it would be dangerous for someone to send home extra with me. πŸ˜‰ I hope you continue to well with your pregnancy. That little one will be here before you know it. I appreciate you linking with us!

    • The extra frosting was a risk I was will to take πŸ˜‰ It’s all gone now, but worth every sugary calorie, haha. I brought the white pumpkins and some of the flowers to my office to decorate πŸ™‚

  4. Girl, I wish I were that cupcake….?? LOL!!

    My Saturday…. I got it on film, it will be posted on my blog at some point… Tee he he. And no.

    It’s not a porn.

    • Dang it! Such a tease πŸ˜‰ I need to bring some headphones to work so I can’t keep up to date with you videos. They’d be the perfect distraction at work!!!
