Baby Shower!

Boy, does time fly! Just like that, it has been 6 weeks since my last baby update! All has been well. Baby girl is growing like a weed! Since the last update, I've been working very hard on getting the nursery finished. I can't wait to post the reveal. My goal is to have it completely done before the end of August. Fingers crossed!! Last week was such a busy week. My mom hosted a baby shower for me at her house on Saturday. It was so much fun. Good food. Good people. Sweet gifts. HILARIOUS games. I truly enjoyed myself. It was a lot of work pulling it off though. Traditionally, the mom-to-be is not supposed help with her own shower, but since there's nothing traditional about me...of course I helped! We had it outside on my mom's car porch. It was a hot day, but not unbearable. My mom and I worked hard the night before and the morning of pulling everything together, and in my opinion it turned out beautifully!

The Guest of Honor:
The cake was as delicious as it was pretty. Our guest drank pink lemonade out of baby bottles with paper straws. My mom insisted on this little detail and it turned out to be super cute. Also a friend of my mom's made the pink "Oreo balls". They were absolutely amazing.
We gave away the popcorn as favors. The guests loved it!
For whatever reason, no one took pictures of the guest table. But I can't leave out the centerpieces my mom and I made because they were just so stinkin' cute!
We also forgot to take a picture of the gift table BEFORE I destroyed it. So here it is in the aftermath...my poor attempt to somewhat fix it for a picture.
I wish we had pictures of the games we played, but everyone was either too busy having fun or recording to take pictures. You'll just have to take my word for it...they were hilarious!

Overall, it was a wonderful shower. I had a great time, and I'm so thankful for everyone that came and showered my sweet girl and I with so much love.
