So Korie threw me a baby shower, for this baby girl. It was a lot of fun, She let me have quite a lot of input on what I wanted like the invitation, and the color scheme, I even helped make some of the favors and things. I wanted to go with purple and grey so that it kind of went with the nursery. I knew Korie wasn't thrilled with the purple, she really wanted me to change to pink but I am on such a purple kick and in the end I think she liked how it turned out. I know I did, we had the shower at my house, it is nice to have a perfect home for entertaining. So Korie took care of the decorations, the invitations, and then my mom, step mom Val did the food and drinks, Lisa another friend made a couple of desserts. I did make the cupcakes, which I was fine with I love my white almond with raspberry filling.
All of these were taken before all the food was there and put out, but we had a chicken pasta salad, green salad, rolls, strawberries, cupcakes, butter cookie, peanut butter cookie, pretzel hugs, cake pops, a punch and lemon water. All the food was so yummy and so were all the treats.
After everybody had left Korie snapped a few pics of my and my huge belly. It is hard for me not to be overly critical of any photo of me but these turned out cute, at least I am telling myself that they did :)
It was a fun Saturday, Jason took the boys to a birthday sledding party so they were gone for it. I had so much fun visiting with friends and family, and of course getting lots of pink stuff. Korie posted these photos on facebook so I just borrowed them.
I was fortunate enough to have my new neighbors throw me another shower a week later, I didn't take any pictures but it was nice to meet some more of our neighbors and I got a bunch more stuff. One thing is for sure, this little girl is going to be the best dressed baby around. She has plenty of cloths and I am so excited to get for all this girly stuff.
