my baby shower :)

i have been so excited for my baby shower!  it was worth every bit of the anticipation!  my two friends, janelle and debran, and my sister, melissa started planning it a while back.  it seemed like it was so far away then, and i can't believe it has already come and gone!  actually that is how this whole pregnancy has felt!  i can't believe i am about to have another baby any day now!  anyway..i thought i'd share a few pics from the shower..the cute details and all the love they put into it.  i am forever grateful and feel so blessed to have such wonderful people in my life.  thank you janelle, debran and melissa for such a perfect shower...and to my friend sarah for taking all of the pics (i didn't pick up a camera once!)..and to all of my family and friends who shared this special day with me!! xoxo

here's the invitation i received in the mail...

melissa designed them.  so cute.

sarah (itsybitsyphotography.com) also did my maternity pictures and framed some of the ones from the shoot.  love them.
the banner in the background was also several pictures of me throughout my pregnancy put together as a game.  you had to put them in the right order.  i thought this was so original!



the food was absolutely delicious!!









how cute is this diaper wreath?!
yummy desserts!  i of course had to sample each and every one! haha!





cute tables.. from the flowers and mason jars as cups to the homemade strawberry jam janelle made as favors.
one of the prizes..debran hand stitched these adorable coasters

the bingo game as i opened gifts..
another prize..an adorable ruffle apron melissa made
the 3 planners responsible for all the cuteness....
and the photographer! ;)  thank you so much..love you girls!! :)
