Today was my baby shower and it was wonderful! My fabulous sister Katie hosted it and she totally out did herself with all the fabulous food and gorgeous details!
It was so fun to celebrate being pregnant and the coming of this little guy!
|Gorgeous mums... My sister always does the prettiest arrangements.|
|She made darling little garlands out of fabric and ribbon. The pendant banners were made by my sister Beth :)|
|I love candy so Katie wanted to incorporate it into the food and decorations. Not only did she pick pretty colored candy she let me pick so it was all stuff I love.|
|More yummy candy and gorgeous flowers!|
|At this little table she had everyone make the baby's first ABC book. It turned out super cute and I love that I had something that everyone made to bring home.|
|Katie made these great mobile decorations, I think I may have to hang one in the nursery :)|
|Yummy, and darling Oreo pops|
|Mini peach pie pops. Aren't these just too cute?|
|Julee Phillips and me|
|Ashley Proctor and me|
|Carly Byram, me, and Angie Day|
|Christy Williams, me, Nada Payne, and Julia Swinton|
|Ashley gave us a Mario coin bank, he is also happily hanging out in the nursery :)|
|How cute are these little shoes?!|
|The sweet hostess and me|
|Julia and me.|
Julia is due just a few days before me
|Katie even had decorations outside the front door|
|This is what it looked like when you walked in. So pretty!|
I am so grateful for my sweet sister and wonderful friends!
Now that we've had the shower the next thing I am looking forward to is the due date :)
Brandon and I keep joking that our little man can't come too early or Brandon won't be done with school stuff yet!
A quick update on Brandon and school... It's finals right now so Brandon is pretty darn busy and a little stressed. But he is doing well and studying hard. After finals are over Brandon will be applying for the Law Journal. It's a pretty big deal and really important when it comes time to find a job. You have two weeks to write and research the topic they give you, which if I understand correctly comes in a 200 page paper format. Doesn't that just sound like heaps of fun ;) I am sure he will do great at it though!
After that he will be working at the Nashville Public Defender's Office for his summer internship. He is excited about it and it is a big blessing for us since it's right here in Nashville and the schedule is flexible and not near as strenuous as a firm job.
Life is good and we are very blessed!
Pictures of the nursery coming soon :)
