I wore a dress that Evan bought me weeks ago when I sent him to Target to get some envelopes. He came back with envelopes and a pretty purple dress. I'm a lucky gal, what can I say? He is ALWAYS thoughtful like that. I'm always the one saying "I don't need any more clothes/ shoes/ etc." and he's always insisting that I need more things. I truly don't, but he just wants to spoil me. Never ridicuoulsly of course. My entire maternity wardrobe comes from Old Navy or Target, but it's the thought that counts and I LOVED my purple dress! : )
Those cream cheese filled strawberries were OH SO good! I've been craving fruit this pregnancy, so let's just say I had three ... or four ... or maybe more of them. ; )
What the ladies did was make it a potluck shower! We had it right after work so letting one person take care of everything was impossible. This was a GREAT idea because we were able to sample a little bit of everything. Evan loved this guacamole.
Yummy cake, some pretty flowers, and China. Just about the perfect definition for a shower!
Some of the loot! I have some Thank You notes to write this weekend!
They insisted on Liliana attending the shower, and as usual, all eyes were on her!
I put her in her "I'm the big sister" t-shirt! YAY for Gap clearance and coincidental matching with Mommy!
LOVED this basket of useful goodies! I love it when you get useful gifts at showers. Give Moms things they'll use! One gift I got, that I forgot to take a picture of, was a "Mommy/ baby" gift. It was AWESOME. It had shower gel and bath salts for Mommy, and lotion for baby. Maybe that isn't a great gift if it's baby #1, but for ME? This was AWESOME. I plan on using those bath salts as I get bigger and bigger and need some ME time!
I was showing Liliana Gloria's "little sister" outfit. Excuse the boob shot. Evan had the camera. That explains it ALL.
Don't flowers just make a space seem so nice?
Shower baby #2 was relaxed, sweet, and so exciting. If Gloria comes when Liliana did, we have 7 weeks left . Hopefully she'll stay put a little longer. But in the mean time, we're getting ready for her!
