Surprise Baby Shower in LA

I have some pretty incredible girlfriends.  We've been through a lot... meeting in college, and standing by each other's sides through the big life changes that happen after.  These girls are absolutely beautiful, inside and out, and I am so blessed to have them in my life.

Last weekend, TL and I flew down to LA for a quick visit with the girls and all of our guys together.  There was no baby shower planned, and believe me, it was the last thing I was expecting... I was just so happy to see them and their sweet guys. 

They went above and beyond to make this a beautiful, intimate, and loving shower - and I can't wait to tell Andie (feels weird typing her name out) about the shower her aunties in LA threw her!  She is one lucky girl to already be loved so much.  I can't believe they pulled off surprising TL and I... we're not easy to surprise ;)

 I am so lucky to have them! {hailee, adrianna, me, casey, michelle}
 Della Terra restaurant in West Hollywood
Cupcakes from Sprinkles, and my breakfast (the food was amazing!)
Me and my love - so blessed!
I am obsessed with these candles Casey made... it says "shower tim, tracy, & andie with love"
They are so adorable, and it's the first time I saw our names together.  I definitely had to snag a few extra to decorate her nursery with.

TL and I were both moved to tears... I walked in and saw the "Baby Andie" on the wall - then the beautiful table decor, and some of the most amazing girls I know standing around the table.  My heart was filled with so much love.  Thank you Adrianna, Casey, Michelle, Hailee and all your guys for everything you did to make us feel so special!

WOW - this is probably the sweetest baby shower ever. I love that they were able to make it so special, especially in a restaurant! Those are sometimes the hardest parties to pull off and all your girls did a lovely job. I love the banner and candles! And how cute is the baby bingo?! Baby Andie is going to have a LOT of wonderful women in her life!

That is so nice of your friends to do for you!!! I was bummed I never had a baby shower with Lucas, but life goes on.

When I saw what it said on the candle, I was thinking, who's Tim? Then I realized it was your hubby's name, but I'm so use to seeing him as TL!
