So I have pretty amazing friends. This Saturday, they threw me such a lovely, kind and thoughtful shower. At one point I was afraid I’d never finish opening all the gifts. There were so many awesome people there, so many friends from all different areas of life and if I could do anything over, I would have taken a pic with each guest who came. Why didn’t I do this?! I took a lot of pics of my own shower, because I knew a few gift-opening shots wouldn’t be enough for me.
Me and Blanche. We worked in the trenches together at Gourmet Pantry 🙂 She is such a lovely person and I’m so glad she’s in our life!
The awesome corsage Kelle made me 🙂 She assured me that a corsage from her wouldn’t be stuffy. It so wasn’t 🙂
Sweet little Olive cake that Cassie made!
Adorable owl cookies made by Louise
Adorable party favors made by Anna and Libby
My favorite cream cheese mints made by Louise.
Libs helping Becky
Look how gorgeous my friends are! These are 9 of the most giving, happy, helpful, Godly, protecting friends a girl could ask for and they were all my hostesses! Not pictured is the equally wonderful Louise Shoemaker. We sure missed her presence, but she had obligations at home that she had to tend to. I need to photoshop her in here 🙂
Another sweet part of this day was Mom and Dad bringing the crib up from Portales that Dad made. He and Matt installed it while we were at the shower. It means so much to me that he has worked hours and hours by himself in his shop to build this for me. I love you, Dad! I am by NO means done with the nursery, but once I am, it will be its own post 🙂 My mom has also worked so hard on the bedding, so I can’t wait to get it all set up and pics taken to show off her work as well! And gift pics are coming, too! I just wanted to put up a few highlights from my shower. All the rest of the shower pics are on my facebook page!
