I had a baby shower way back when…

So, yeah. Remember how I said I was going blog a little bit about my pregnancy? Well, one of my big days was the day of my baby shower.  It was way back in March.  On March 17th to be exact at my friend Melissa’s house.  My friend Courtney was the one who actually hosted the party.  That was pretty fun because we were both pregnant, but she was REALLY pregnant.  Like, about to pop out a baby any day pregnant.


The shower was an owl theme.  We had some cute owl decorations, and Courtney made a cake, some cupcakes and some other goodies.

I also made some cute party favors that I saw on Pinterest


We had a good time visiting, playing games, and of course I opened some presents.  I could not believe how generous everyone was.

We also had a decorating station where people decorated onesies and quilt squares.



Here are the finished quilt squares:


My friend Bonnie is going to sew them together for me.  I’ll make sure to show you when it is done.

As I said before, we also decorated onesies.  I recently dressed Tanner in all of them and took pictures.  I love them so much! They turned out so cute.

It was really a fun day, and I’m so lucky to have such wonderful friends and family.
