The Best Baby Shower Of All Time

No, seriously.  I'm not messing around here.  This was, in fact, the best baby shower EVER. I remember before we were seeing REs I would look at baby shower pictures online from the professionals if you will- I loved all of the cute little themes- the details.  I remember looking at pictures of fabulous showers in the early parts of this pregnancy, feeling a little guilty like I wasn't quite there yet- like I didn't want to jinx it.  I would admire the cute little baby things, the smiling faces.  I hoped that I'd be able to be in some pictures like that one day, maybe soon. 

Those pictures I admired had beautiful details, but not one stood up to the amazing work that my sister-in-law, my best friend, and my mom put together for my baby shower this weekend.  Not one came even close. Yes, I know- just the fact that I even got a baby shower probably makes me slightly biased...but it really was amazing. They did such an incredible job thinking of everything! And it was all a surprise- I knew nothing about what it would look like or what we would do.  It all exceeded even my wildest dreams!

Thank you N, J, and Mom!  I couldn't have had a more beautiful day. 

My sister-in-law had changed out all of her framed pictures to add pics of B and I and of the Luckies ultrasounds!  I cried when I walked in and saw them- the thought that was put in to every detail was overwhelming.

These were a gift from sister-in-law!

My best friend made one of my favorite beverages! Ocean Water (from Sonic)! And it matched the pink and blue theme of course.

They don't only think of everything, but they're all amazing chefs too! N made these delish chocolate dipped marshmallows (pink and blue, don't forget!)

Especially for my strawberry shortcake urge!

J, my best friend, actually made this ice cream cone stand onesie for the occasion! She's so handy (with a little help from some friends)  Totally delicious mini cupcakes filled the ice cream cones, and surprise m&m's too!

Love all of the pink and blue details throughout the house!

Mom had an AWESOME idea to do a scrapbooking activity instead of the (sometimes awkward) traditional baby shower games.  Everyone made two scrap book pages, one for Little Lady and one for Big Bubba, so we can fill them up once the little ones arrive! I'm SO excited (and not just because I don't need to make a scrap book now...)

The tables were all prepared with tons of fun scrap booking materials!

The finished products were perfection, serious perfection!

I couldn't have asked for anything more perfect.  I will never forget this day; I will cherish it for the rest of my life.


  1. Wow you are right!! The detail they put in is amazing. You and those babies are very loved.

  2. You aren't biased at all!! That was the best baby shower that I've ever heard of!!!! No awkward games! Scrap booking!!!! And so much love! I could feel how much your family and friends cared for you through the pictures! What a wonderful day!! Wishing you many more to come!

  3. Incredible, I have never seen anything like this. They should open a business throwing showers!!!! Congrats on such a wonderful day!!!

  4. looks like a fantastic shower!!!!!
