Baby Shower Time!

So overall, the baby shower was a success and very pretty. Definitely wasn’t expecting as much as what was done since my friend has been working crazy hours. I told her to just come over and decorate my house since she wanted to throw the party since I knew that our friends would most likely flake and I wasn’t about to fork over a lot of money for pizza when people wouldn’t show up. So we did pasta, potato salad and croissant sandwiches for my family. I left the house while they got it all prepped and ready for me and it was a nice surprise.

I chose the colors basically because it went well with the theme I wanted, mermaid. I figured that would be fitting since my husband sang “kiss the girl” from The Little Mermaid to me when we first started dating. Yep, I remember that shit.

Apparently the Princess diaper cake was in shambles when my friend got it here so my husband and step-dad ended up putting it together just in time with some skewer sticks. That thing was a pain to take apart, so I can’t even imagine what it was like putting it together! LOL

My friend ended up making this lovely paper mobile for me in the colors I like with little seahorses and seashells and pearls. She definitely did it in a way that’s less time consuming than what I did for my sisters Oregon Duck Paper Mobile. She hung the string from the crotchet ring then double sided it with the paper cutouts, smart! Then strung pearl beads in-between each one. If I decide to do one of these, I’ll definitely do it like she did next time.

Not a very good picture but she had some seashells everywhere, little drift wood pieces in the burlap bags, rocks, and she even made my husband a Styrofoam game of thrones chair diaper cake with little trinkets and cards on it. He liked it and that was awesome of her! It doesn’t necessarily go with the theme, but it does go with the name we chose for our daughter, or well, my husband pretty much chose for our daughter. lol Now I just need to convince him to help me clean up our office room so he can start making it into a mans room since its the only room in the house that essentially has all of his crap in it. Well, baby stuff too since we have limited space ATM until we can figure out where to put it all.

We still have a few things we need to get for baby, but we shall in due time since it’s not necessarily a need right now when she’ll be a newborn.

Thanks to my family and Jennifer for celebrating our little babe with us. <3

    Well it sounds like you had a lovely baby shower. I’m guessing you are having a girl. I like that song, “Kiss the girl”
