A few weeks ago, friends and family from near and far gathered to celebrate our baby boy. How great is that? We are so thankful. After I booked the date/venue, my good friend Sara Shelor (you may know her from this place) insisted and ripped the planning responsibility out of my control-freak-planner-grasp (not before I sent her some Pins, of course)–which I am very thankful for :). Pretty nice having some great friends who also happen to be vendors and creative minds to throw a fantastic shower! Lynette, Melissa, Amy, Sara, and Cheyenne–thank you times a million. It was so nice to attend an event as a guest and have so many surprises to ooh and ahh at! Our poor second child will never forgive you-ha :). What a special day it was. We are truly thankful for all of the love, support and prayers we’ve received through this pregnancy.

The ‘guest book’ were these adorable circles where guests wrote advice on different aspects of babies–some of the responses were quite hilarious! The food was all so delicious and fun–it was themed for things that ‘little boys’ would eat (chicken and waffles, mac n’ cheese etc.)
Just feeding each other cake, like we’re at a wedding. Love you Sara :).
Opening gifts was so fun! I have a lot of learning to do when it comes to all of this baby ‘stuff’! Mom graciously wrote down all of the gifts for me (think we look alike??).
Look who joined us 🙂
This lady right here. SO thankful I hired her as our wedding photographer almost 5 years ago now! You are a treasure.
This is our sweet boy’s Godmother–Margaux. She is my oldest friend in the world :).
