Showering Sweet Baby

I headed home to Minnesota at 30 weeks pregnant to celebrate our sweet baby girl with my closest friends and family. My mom threw me the most beautiful baby shower and I am so grateful for all of the memories created that afternoon!

As guests arrived they sipped pink lemonade and champagne as they wrote on Project Life cards for baby girl's baby book. I received amazing pieces of advice and encouragement, along with some messages for baby, too. I also got to meet my nephew, Leo, who I couldn't get enough cuddles with!
After we settled in we played a few quick games before eating lunch. The Price is Right game was a big hit; it also was so nice to go home with all of the supplies my mom included in the basket! Guests also guessed my belly size. Almost everyone thought I was way bigger than I actually was! My friend Coley was only a few centimeters off and went home with the prize.

My mom prepared an amazing lunch, including my favorite chicken salad, a veggie pizza, and cucumber sandwiches. For dessert we had frosted sugar cookies, Rice Krispie bars, and cake. Everything was so delicious!
After lunch I opened gifts while everyone ate dessert. I received so many beautiful things for baby, including the handmade blanket photographed below from my aunt. I will be bringing it to the hospital to keep our baby girl warm and cozy.

We snapped a ton of photos before everyone headed home, including the gem below with my dancer girls. After 12 years of dance photos it is a guarantee that poses will be struck every time we are together.
The ladies departed with Brian's homemade granola as a thank you for attending. I cannot express how grateful I am for all of the love and support I received at my shower- baby and I felt so special!
