Baby Shower

I feel so incredibly lucky to have the family and friends that I do.  First off, I have to admit I never wanted a baby shower, I didn’t even have a wedding shower. They just aren’t my thing and I always felt uncomfortable with the notion of people buying me items.  But my mother-in-law, Liz, is amazing at throwing parties and since this would be her first grandchild I just couldn’t say no to her request for throwing James and I a baby shower. My sister also helped co-host the event, too and it was hands down AMAZING!  From the decor, to the food, to weather, it was all planned perfectly. I had so much fun hanging out with all the guests and although there was a baby game set-up to play everyone was having such a good time talking that we never got to it. James and I can’t get over how more than generous our family and friends were in helping us get ready to bring Hunter into the world. I was putting some of the items away yesterday and just started tearing up thinking about how nice it is to have such wonderful people around to support you on such a life changing event.  Thank you, thank you! LOVE M&J


Big Winner

I totally got spoiled with friends this weekend. Not only did I throw my fancy wine party this Saturday (pics and details coming this week), but I also had a dear friend, Austyn, from high school fly into town this weekend for her baby shower. I was lucky enough to have Austyn and her husband stay at my house on Friday.

She really makes pregnancy look good!

I got her a Boppy Pillow and was determined to wrap it for some reason. By the time I was done wrapping the gift the paper looked like I had found it in someone’s trash can.

So me and old looking wrapping paper jumped into the car and headed to Washington, MO for her Baby Shower. Not only does this town happen to be utterly adorable it even has a Target! The shower was held at this cute little coffee shop…

The beautiful sisters!

I’m only assuming a guy invited this game, but we played the old Guess How Big All Your Relatives Think You Look Yarn Game.

Big winner! I won the Guess the Baby Food game and got a fancy sugar cookie gift basket –yums! This is the only time my baby food diet has ever paid off…HAHA joking cause eating baby food to lose weight would be weird, right?

And I was a big winner again that night. Austyn’s creative sister-in-law gave me some left over cupcakes to use at the wine party I was throwing that same night.
