Our Baby Shower

My sisters are the absolute best.  Truly.  They're more than my sisters... we have a special bond and I am extremely lucky to have them both in my life.  I love them dearly.

They were extremely thoughtful and sweet and thought about every detail of planning a shower for Andie and I.  They wanted it to be perfect and worked closely with our family friend, Buffy, to try and make it as creative as possible.  My mom was also a big part of making it happen, she loves being a part of all of it. It was one of the sweetest things ever... every little detail - the colors, signs, candy, diaper cakes, ribbon, flowers... they put so much time and thought into it all, and I was extremely overwhelmed  by all of it.  I felt so special - Andie is a lucky girl to have these two as her aunties.

The invitations were adorable, my sister, Kel, ordered them off of Tiny Prints and I was obsessed with them.  It was so exciting to open it up in the mail.  I looked forward to this shower for months... not because of the presents, but because of the people.  All of the ladies who were there have been so supportive of me and shown so much genuine love since hearing about Andie coming into our lives.  Some of them drove 2 hours to be there, and it really meant a lot to me.  It was amazing to be surrounded by so many amazing people.  I am abundantly blessed.  It's definitely a day I will never forget, and one I will be sure to tell Andie all about!!

 At almost 33 weeks preggo, I had the hardest time trying to figure out what to wear... found this dress on sale at Victoria's Secret.
My gorgeous sisters... Kelly & Julie!
 The adorable candy station... if you know me, you know I loveeee candy!

 My favorite flower centerpieces - and the weenie dog diaper cake.  They honored our first babies, Max & Zeus!
Desserts - homemade cupcakes and cake balls - both funfetti and both delicious!!!
The tables looked adorable!
 The 6 layer diaper cake... adorable!  And all the food - so much good food!
 TL, my MIL Cindy, and my beautiful mama.
The goody bags for the candy station... I love the chevron!
 Mason jars and punch.
 The adorable invite from Tiny Prints... it was so sweet!
Andie and I were spoiled with so many amazing gifts... it was so much fun opening them all!

Me and TL.

It was such a wonderful day and it was very heartwarming for me.  Definitely a day I will never forget, thanks to my amazing sisters!
