It's Monday night as I'm writing this and I'm still in denial that the weekend is over. It was so so so perfect in every way. The baby shower went fabulously, the weather was near 80 each day (!!) and I got to see so many of my favorite people. Can we rewind time back to Friday, please?
A shower - be it wedding or baby or whatever - is always so humbling. To think that your friends and family travel from all over the place to spend time with you and not to mention the gifts!- it's kind of amazing and can bring tears to your eyes (or is that just my pregnant self). Nick's mom and my stepmom through us the most beautiful shower on Saturday and we couldn't be more thankful. Prepare for a little photo dump...
I was being bossy and requested that the shower not be too baby-ish, so we went with a creamy, neutral 'theme' that I loved. The room was filled with white roses and cream linens, a grilled cheese + soup and salad buffet, and delicious desserts from the restaurant we had our wedding rehearsal dinner at. We kept it simple with the games and just played baby bingo while we were opening gifts and then left cards for everyone to fill out at the tables guessing the baby's name, birthday and height + weight. It was fun to read through those afterwards and see everyone's guesses! Nick's aunt made these amazing cookies for our favors that I'm so sad I didn't get a picture of because they were gorgeous. I wish I had more pictures in general, but I actually took zero... thank goodness for others texting these to me!
This makes me laugh because all of our eyes are closed, ha!
So in love with this dress. Beyond thankful that it still fit after I ordered it a few weeks ago during the Shopbop sale. I kept things simple with these earrings (that I wear way too often) and nude heels. And I can't say enough great things about this self tanner - I mean it was blizzarding 7 days ago, but I still managed to look like I had some color, never mind that it was out of a bottle!
About half of the goodies we received + a sneak peak of the nursery :) We were properly spoiled and checked off the majority of our baby registry. It was really fun to sit there and go through everything on Sunday - you wouldn't believe the amount of adorable (and tiny!) clothes we got. This week I'll be busy busy organizing and picking up a few things that we still need. Hoping to get the room finished so I can do a tour soon. Can you believe we're down to 8 weeks to go?!
All in all, we couldn't have asked for a better baby shower. We are blessed to have so many friends and family that made the trip to come celebrate and love on us. Baby O is already one very lucky lady!
