Last Friday, my sweet friends hosted a baby shower for me and my friend Cassie. Cassie is due in July with her second baby (also a boy) and it was a great opportunity to celebrate these new little men together. Of course, I did not expect to have any type of shower with this pregnancy, being the 3rd time around and another boy, so it was really such a nice surprise to have a little party.
Traci and Elizabeth set up this amazing spread. I wish I could send you some of Elizabeth's pound cake, this preggo went back for seconds.
Cassie hasn't picked a name yet and we aren't sharing Baby3's name, so the girls made these letters for our last names and everyone signed the back. A meaningful keepsake for sure!
Cassie and I did not plan our outfits, we just happen to show up matching really often. We actually unknowingly went to brunch at the same place two days later, wearing the same colored purple dresses. Weird.
I wrote a post a few weeks ago about some of my favorite gifts to give and this burp cloth was one of them. Cassie is an Oklahoma State fan and I just know Baby J will be spitting up because of Oklahoma fans all fall long.
I also got her a giant wine glass, because when you are about to have 2 under 2, it is important.
A sweet little outfit from Traci for Baby 3. This one is coming with me in the suitcase just in case we aren't in a house before Baby comes.
|Me, Elizabeth, Andrea (also pregs with a boy, due in September!), Cassie, Jenny, Nikki, Gina, Traci, Baby Charli|
Cassie and me with the lovely hostesses. My dress is from Target when I was pregs with B. It is a non-maternity one in a bigger size. The necklace is Traci's, it is probably j.crew or somewhere else fancy like that where I don't shop. (I love my friends' closets)
And finally, this is what happens when you walk in the house with handfuls of gifts.
Thanks, Bubs, that was helpful.
12ish weeks til we meet this little dude.
Can't come soon enough!
PS I am reading and appreciating all your comments this week, but time is just so short getting ready for the move and spending time with all the wonderful people we know in Monterey. I look forward to catching up on all your blogs soon and thank you for all your sweet words in the meantime!
