Saturday's Baby Shower

Saturday was my second baby shower! I'm going to apologize in advance for the lack of pictures...I'll have to see if I can get some more from my mom. It was the most beautiful shower I've ever been too!

Here is me with my cake...


And opening some gifts...
A special gift from my mom...

She got me a Mom locket from Tiffany's as well as a silver spoon (and she got the Grandma locket). I was so surprised, the last thing I expected to see at my baby shower was a little blue box!


We seriously had the best food ever. A friend of ours is a caterer and she did all of the food for the shower...we had my favorite chicken salad, porchuitto and melon, fresh made hummus, brushetta and tapenade, spinach and artichoke dip, fresh fruit, and a lot more that I can't remember because I couldn't fit it on my plate!


In addition to a lot of wonderful gifts, I got a lot of great tips from a friend that has two little girls. There is just so much I don't know - we don't have any babies in our family and I feel clueless on some of the things that are probably super basic.


I managed to get all my thank you's written yesterday (which is why I wasn't on here) and that really relieved some stress!

Sunday we went to take a tour of L and D at my hospital which is conveniently located about 5 minutes from my house! Their labor suites are ENORMOUS! I thought the ones at Willow Creek were huge! My goodness, I don't know what I need that much room for! They also have a kitchen stocked full of goodies for mommy after you deliver. And of course they allow you to bring things in which is nice...because I just want a turkey sandwich from Panera! Do you know how long it's been since I've had a deli meat?!

I should have some nursery pictures soon...we made a ton of progress. I also did some art projects that I want to share!

Today is our final attempt at the 4D ultrasound...it's at 2pm. I really hope we get a good picture but if we don't I know I will be seeing him live and in person soon! Oh gosh, that's kind of scary to say! I feel so unprepared!

Pin It!

I love the cake. I think it is perfect that you got to pick it out. Ricks did our wedding cake and it was everything I had dreamed about.

I can't wait to see if you get a better picture today

Looks like a wonderful shower!! I hope you get to see that precious baby's face today!! Best of luck!

I hope you get to see Brayden today!!!
I've been eating turkey sandwiches all along. That's one of my main food groups. I just make sure they get heated for close to 1 minute and they say that's okay.

You are prepared! Probably way more prepared than you need to be. My dad kept telling me that Brody wouldn't care what I didn't have or didn't know. It will all just come natural to you!

I love your shirt? Where did you find it? Everything looks so nice! =)
