Work Shower

Last week was my work baby shower thrown by Elise & Amber my two fave work buddies!  Below are all of the yummy treats they brought.

We played a fun, creative memory candy game.  Lots of fun!

 All my gifts!

 Woo Hoo! Our crib bedding!

And our high chair thingy.

Bath tub!

Lainey, Amber’s daughter loved the tub.  She was showing me how it’s done.

The massive pile.  Everyone was extremely generous!

They also had a contest where everyone could guess the date, weight and sex of the baby.  The best guess wins a gift card!  Here are all of the entries on display in my cube.

We forgot to get a picture so we just took one in the street as we were all leaving.  Thank you ladies for throwing me such a great shower! Elise is on the left, Amber on the right. Lainey is in the car to the left screaming.


Girlfriends Shower

My amazing girlfriends threw me the a wonderful baby shower this weekend.
The lovely hostesses, Katie, Carrie and Nicole (aka The Fish).

They bought me a special photo album for all of my shower pictures to go in.  Everyone who attended signed a special note in the front.

Oh how I wanted a mimosa.  But the punch was delicious!

The baby and the beautiful cake.  Seriously, how cool is this cake?!  Duff would be proud.

Everyone decorated a onesie or burp cloth and I picked my favorite and my best guess at Aaron’s favorite.

Here are all of the entries.

I picked this one for Aaron’s favorite.  It says “Daddy’s Little Broccoli”.  I thought it was cute.  I think Angie decorated this one.  Aaron picked his favorite when we got home it was the one that said “Tax Deduction”.

This one was my favorite. It says “Plato’s Best Bud”.  Turned out my mom decorated it!

I loved this! These cards are letters from friends who were there and some who couldn’t make it.  They offered kind words, advice, poems, quotes and special experiences on being a mother. Thank you to everyone who took the time to do this.  It means so much to me.

This is my long time friend Stacy Lynn, who gave birth to her second little one, Hadleigh just three weeks ago.  Doesn’t she look amazing! I’m so glad you could make it Stace!

Here is beautiful little Hadleigh.  I had so much fun holding her.  I just couldn’t put her down.   I can’t wait to hold Zimmerbaby l like this.

They made a neat chart where everyone guessed what time of day Zimmerbaby would be born and what sex they think it will be.  My guess is a boy at 7:17pm.

Present Time!!  We got our changing table pad from Stacy & Kelly.

A cute little pillow to leave for the Toothfairy someday from Fran.  It says “Z Baby” on it. Too cute!  Sorry I didn’t turn it around so you could see the front.

A cute little pacifier holder from Sue.

Who doesn’t love a Target gift card. Ooooh!

My mama taping the events for us.

Shelves for the baby’s room from Angie.  I can’t wait to start decorating the walls now!

I need to explain the next one a bit.  Aaron decided to throw in a surprise gift.  He loves Star Wars.  Since we found out we were expecting he has been talking about how the baby needs a Star Wars mobile.  I never thought he was serious. Well…

I looked in the box and could not believe it.
He actually made it.

A Star Wars mobile.

Complete with Yoda, Darth Vader, R2D2 & Boba Fett.  It was so funny!

Katie got us an adorable onesie that says “Tree hugger” on it.  Because, well, we are.

This one needs a lead in as well.  When Katie was expecting her first child, Carter, Carrie and I bought her a “mom” necklace.  She saved it until she gave birth before wearing it for the first time.  When Carrie was expecting her first, Emerson, Katie and I gave her the same necklace.  She too waited until she gave birth to wear it for the first time.  And so the tradition continues…

The necklace says mama in four different languages.  English, French, Spanish and Italian. I absolutely love it and can’t wait to put it on for the first time.  Thank you both so much!!!!

Thank you to everyone who helped make this shower special. I truly enjoyed it. Thanks to those who could make it and those who couldn’t. All of the small details really made the day extra special. Thank you, Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
