On the sunny little Sunday before last, my dear friends Janey and Jamie hosted a couple’s shower for my husband Jon and myself in our home. I didn’t get a chance to take many photos (as one forgets to do when they’re enjoying themselves…a good problem to have) but it was SUCH a lovely day so I wanted to share the few that I snapped before our guests arrived.
Isn’t this all so lovely? I feel like Pinterest just barfed up all my favorite things into our house. Although Janey and Jamie planned and hosted the shower, they enlisted all my best lady friends to help put the perfect day together, who showed up like a fleet of soldiers hours before the shower to make sure everything looked perfect (all while I was upstairs primping!). Rebecca brought a giant cheese plate (yum-city), Jenny brought tons of beer and snacks (cough *doughnuts* cough), Lynn brought two, count ’em, TWO amazing cakes and Megan brought all the plates, napkins and silverware and a homemade cream puff dessert. Amazing, no? I was honestly brought to tears by the generosity of our pals.
I mean, I just wanna eat like this all the time, k?
How adorbs is that teeny tiny bee? Lynn knows me too, too well…this was pretty much my own private lemon cake, aka my favorite flavor of anything sweet (that I finished off yesterday, just in time for shower no. 2!).
See all those mini doughnuts? Jenny said she walked into Winchell’s Doughnuts (a local shop) and said she would “take them all”. True friends clear out pastry cases for you.
And let’s not forget about the overwhelming amount of gifts our guests brought for baby T. Beautiful gifts. Thoughtful gifts. Homemade bibs. Favorite books. I could go on for hours. His not-quite-ready room is just OVERFLOWING with everything he needs, much much more than everything we need to welcome him into our little world.
Guest appearance from the rocking horse Jon’s grandmother had made for him as a baby. It’s been in our garage for YEARS, waiting for a little reason to come out and play. So sweet.
We’ll never be able to fully express how grateful we are to have such amazing people in our lives. Our full house filled our hearts on this day and we can’t wait for baby boy T to meet all his “aunts” and “uncles” and all the wonderful things you’ll help us teach him. Grateful, thank you, more please.
