A baby shower, m'Kay?

Saturday I had the pleasure of attending Kay's baby shower at the lovely home of Jolene. (Seriously, I pink puffy heart Jolene's place!) My other blogger bestie Alyssa was also in attendance as she helped throw the shower.

I got to play with our new camera, so here are some of the gazillion photos I took.

The diaper wreath made by the crafty Jolene Alyssa!

I tied for first for the celeb baby name game. My prize was a GC to Target!

My gift to them: a diaper bag and GC. Strangely, the diaper bag wasn't removed from her registry so she ended up with THREE of them at the shower. Doh! (That's the father-to-be assisting with gifts.)

When Kay opened this, Alyssa said, "Be sure to show Nanette!" Cupcake! So cute!
Cupcake onesie!

Check out these teeny tiny homemade booties!

The fabulous girls and I. I normally don't tower over them, but I'm wearing 4-inch platforms here.

Kay is about a month ahead of me and absolutely has that pregnancy glow. I'm looking forward to our little girls' play dates!

Congrats, Kay, Steve and Baby R!

  5. I think that the clothesline decor is adorable! what an extra cute way to shower the baby with gifts AND decorate! heck- since you'd have to take the tags off of the clothes- you could even use nice second hand clothes!

  14. aww, thank you so much for joining us that day! I only wish I had more time to sit and chat. Thank you for puffy-hearting our house...that means a lot to me as we've worked hard to make it look like "home." One correction though - Alyssa made that wreath! I only gave her the idea! She was amazing and helped with all of the creative aspects of the shower. I puffy heart her even more now! Can't wait till YOUR shower and don't go kidding yourself - you definitely have a pregnancy glow. You looked beautiful on Saturday. :)
