This past Saturday was my baby shower and it turned out so nice I thought. I'm not the hugest fan of showers (bridal or baby), so I had a lot of rules for the party throwers. I wanted it to be pop culture based, entertaining, and fun. Hopefully everyone enjoyed themselves. We had some delicious food, that I couldn't stop eating, provided by my lovely Aunts (Becky, Peggy, and Lori) and my Grandma...thanks so much!
We talked for a bit
ate some food, played some games (including celebrity baby name memory, famous tv moms quiz, and a mega round of encore using the word "baby".
and then the crowd opened up presents. The idea of sitting there opening gifts while everyone stared at me was just not appealing to me, so I decided that the guests would open up the presents....I liked that a lot better.
I got a lot of cute stuff...seriously. Cute outfits, swimsuits, accessories, and blankets. Here is a quilt that my cousin-in-law Nena and Aunt Gail made for me. Nena took her inspiration from the dots that I had bought for the nursery walls and ran with it....I thought it turned out adorable. With the same fabrics she decorated some onesies, and made little booties....too cute.
Thank you to everyone who came and participated...and thank you so much for the gifts. Love you all!
