It's Baby Shower Time!

Ok I finally had time to edit and play with all the pics.. You ready for a picture overload?

My baby shower for lil miss McKenzie took place on April 28th, 2013.
My mom and mother in law threw it for me at my Mother in Law's place.. Can you blame me for trying to get married there?
The house looked beautiful and all the decorations that they did looked great!
I was a bit nervous since I don't really love all the attention on me but it was a lot of fun.


Instead of party favor we had a candy buffet set up where guests could take home a bag full of candy.. which also had mine and hubbs baby pictures on display... He's the lil chubbers to the left.. I had a full on collage of me.

It was very hot! Let's just say I'm glad I was wearing black or you woulda seen all sorts of hotness showing through..


I requested that we not play all the silly baby games but there were still plenty of ways to go home with a lil prize.



  • We did the guess my belly size - since that's kinda fun to see what everyone thinks..
  • The #7th gift opened (who it was from)
  • A diaper raffle (all that also brought diapers had their name entered to be drawn)
  • After cake was served, who ever had an X on the bottom of their plate

Also my cousin brought a cute idea to the table during our Easter get together of having a hairbow decorating station.. so I told them they were in charge of making it happen..I'm so happy we went with it.. Lil miss received so many cute hair bows/headbands. (below my bff and lil cousin are busy making headbands)





All in all it was a great day and we got spoiled and took home a truck and 2 car fulls of stuff!
~~

At work a couple days later I was again spoiled with a Surprise Baby Shower.





Do I look surprised? I tried.. I ended up finding out a few hours before because my boss (poor thing tried) forgot to make the "meeting" invite "private" so when I tried to schedule a meeting with her earlier that day I saw it on her calendar. She still doesn't know I knew.. I'll let her feel like she pulled it off cuz she was pretty excited. 

It was also really great to feel so appreciated and loved by my co-workers.. I ended up getting a Target giftcard of $250! Yah I was shocked, definitely didn't expect that much. It was so nice because even after my shower I still didn't get a few of the big ticket items so it was such a relief to get this gift.. I quickly went home that night and ordered a few things! :)




3 weeks later I still have my room looking like this..This pic I took was more to capture all the diapers I got so there is way way more stuff to the right and left of the diapers but this is a good idea.. I got a lot of putting away and finding homes to do. 

Only 11 more "working" days left before maternity leave. Can't come soon enough!
