Baby Shower!

On Saturday, July 24th, my sweet friends Lisa, Brooke and Tiffany hosted a fabulous baby shower for me and Baby Lloyd.  We received so many great gifts, and are ticking off the "necessities" we need.  The theme tied in to our nursery theme--Look Whooo's Having a Baby.  So cute...lots of bright colors with some owls thrown in.

They did a great job.  The food was fabulous: tortellini pasta salad, egg and sausage casserole, chicken salad sandwiches, fruit, muffins, champagne, and sparkling cider.  Delish!

Tiffany found these cute owl cookies on Etsy.  They tasted as good as they looked!

Brooke is an expert diaper cake maker.  I was super impressed!  We played a couple of games, including the "guess how big mommy's tummy is" game. 

The winner was spot on!  Thankfully, the measuring tape wasn't numbered.  Much better that way!  We also played a game where you had to name the nursery rhyme based on a phrase from the rhyme.  I wasn't the greatest at that game--need to do some brushing up before BL arrives!

Everyone was so generous and we got some great gifts.

Our house officially has baby "stuff" and we are getting closer and closer to the big day.  We can't wait!

Brooke, myself and Lisa--aka the Hostesses with the Mostestes.  Tiffany, unfortunately, had to miss the actual shower due to attend her grandmother's funeral.  We completely understood, but she was missed.  Our thoughts were with her that day.  Michael and I are so blessed to have such sweet friends in our lives.  I can't wait for Baby Lloyd to meet them all!
