family baby shower

This last weekend I was so blessed to have a family & family friends baby shower!  It was thrown by my sister, Leanne, my sister-in-law Kristi, and my two college friends Janae & Dawn.  They all did such an amazing job and it turned out so perfectly.  The shower had a "woodland" theme and the decor was really adorable with pine cones and little woodland creatures everywhere.  The cake even looked like a birch tree!

Two of my amazing hostess...

My sister-in-law Kristi who drove 4 hours each way from Tulsa, to come spend time with me and to help out with the shower!  Caleb also made an appearance at the shower... and helped loaded up all the great baby gear we received. :)

And of course the brains behind the operation... my creative sister, Leanne!

The week before the shower I had been pretty stressed out... there was a lot that made me feel unprepared for baby. I had several things I still needed for the baby's room, and it seemed like everything I had ordered was on back order! The shower was sort of the only thing I was looking forward to, but even it was being threatened by snow. Luckily my sister put up with a tearful phone conversation to help me feel better about the entire situation and put my mind at ease. Of course the snow turned out to be nothing  {literally a couple of flakes} and the geneourous gifts I recieved made me feel like "yeah, I could take care of a baby with this stuff." It also allowed me to start nesting. :) I also loved being able to see several people who attended that I hadn't seen in a long time! It was perfect! Thanks again to my wonderful hostesses and my momma for letting them use her house!


  1. That's exactly how I felt before my shower! Well minus the snow ha. You look gorge- the party looks way too cute - such a perfect party! You're gonna be a great mama girl!

  2. You can never be prepared. :) Just rest up and enjoy your time, just the two of you. Bc soon you'll be snuggling that precious bundle and life will never be the same!!!

  3. Family baby shower! It looks awesome. This is how I want to host a surprise shower for my own sister. She loves pastel themes so will use those colors for all the décor. Will also be booking one of the rental spaces for parties that complement the party color scheme in best way possible.
