my baby shower


My mom threw me a lovely and intimate baby shower, of which began with brunch at North Harbor Club on the lake and concluded at my house for drinks, dessert, games and gifts. 7 very important ladies came in from out of state (CA, PA, DC, MO and SC) to partake in the festivities and mingle with me and my best NC girls. Our little boy sure is loved!


I loved all of the decorations!


 And, of course, I had to get photos with my mom, aunt, cousin and friends.


Shannon drove in from Washington DC and I loved every second I had with her... So glad she came back with her dog, Cali's best friend, later that night for a playdate!


Ashton made this beautiful diaper cake from scratch. I never knew diaper cakes could be so classy and I'm not sure I'll ever be able to dismantle it! Although those are Pampers, so I won't be letting them go to waste :)


Anna is from Missouri but is currently on the road (she does what Bryan and I used to do for work) with Coca Cola and NASCAR... Our new bumps met for the 1st time -- her 2 and my 1 ;)


It was so great to have all of my special ladies celebrating our baby boy!
