THE Baby Shower!!!

The baby shower was a total success. First off....it did not rain, very close, but it didn't. We set up and did a lot of the work Friday under the tent while a storm was in full force...but we did not complain because the more it rained Friday, the clearer the skies Saturday (or so this was our thinking process haha) . And sure enough, I woke at 6:30a.m. and the sun was coming up and I could not be happier (well not really, it was 6a.m. after all). This baby shower took months in the making...all because I had the brightest idea to hand make ALL of the decorations (craziness on my part), from the billion pom poms, to all of the banners, the coral table runners, to painting the centerpiece branches yellow, also making lemon sea salt scrubs for game prizes, and my favorite...the chandelier. My sister's beach cruiser was also a nice touch and made a great little spot for guests to take pictures.
Despite all of the stress, it was all worth it at the end...my sister loved it!!! So now...it's a waiting game for baby niece to arrive (due end of May). I am beyond excited.
Sorry for the overwhelming amount of pictures you are about to see....but I just couldn't help it.

Here I am with my brother-in-law (and daddy to be) painting the branches in the middle of a storm.

And some of my favorite gifts my sister received.

This absolutely stunning mint green knit little dress and shoes. This is just so so so cute in person. It will definitely be framed and kept for years and years.

This adorable grey and white dress with a dash of neon pink.

And these adorable Stuart Weitzman baby shoes I got for my little niece. Aren't they lovely?

So there you have it. Now you all know why I wasn't around for a while. Very tiring, but oh so worth it.
