My baby shower was on Saturday and I had so much fun!
I was a little nervous because I hate being the center of attention-- especially when I have to open gifts in front of everyone. Hahaha!
My dear friend Fallon planned all the decor and my mom did all the food. And this all took place at the church where Ian works.
Onto the details!
The little welcome table...
Me and my beautiful mama!
The menu was based off of all the cravings I've had throughout the pregnancy...
With my mom, grandma, and big sis!
With two more dear friends, Summer (she's pregnant with a boy too and is only 5 days ahead of me!) and Heather (who already has an adorable little boy)!
This is where I sat and opened gifts...
This is Lauren, Jessie, and Susie. I call the girls my sisters and Susie is like a second mom to me...
Me with Ian's mom, Debi. Love her!
This is beautiful Fallon who put it all together for me! She was also my very first friend when we moved to Portland. Oh, and Ian and I set her up with her [now] husband... I will always take the credit for that one!
And here is me with Ian's grandma "Mimi". This woman is seriously hilarious.
And is convinced I'm having a baby girl even though I showed her the ultrasound photos of the boy parts... She thinks it's just a little arm... oh Mimi!
There were many other friends that came, but aren't pictured here.
I couldn't have been more blessed by all the love that was shown!
I spent all day on Friday with my mom and Grandma and they took me shopping for literally EVERYTHING. They bought me all the "big" stuff that no one else would've gotten us (like our stroller, crib mattress, breast pump, etc.) and they also bought me the whole outfit I wore to my shower, along with other necessities like nursing bras and underwear and something cute and practical to wear at the hospital.
I am certainly well-loved.
Thank you to everyone that came!
