Under the Sea {Baby Shower #2}

I feel so fortunate to have such great family and friends. I know everyone brags on their own (as you should!) but man, I just have the best ones hands down ;) This weekend we got showered in love and gifts for a second baby shower- this one with all of my side of the family. My mom and sister went all out with the ocean/under the sea theme in keeping with our nursery and it was too adorable. Not to mention the fact that my sister drove 9+ hours to be in town for this event!!
There was a great spread of food which included some of my favorite things like crack dip and the most amazing cookies from the best bakery around.

We played a few fun games but the best one hands down was having the guests make play-doh babies while I opened gifts. When I was finished opening gifts they all turned their "babies" in and I had to award prizes for funniest, creepiest, most lifelike, etc. I think everyone had a good time with it and it was so funny seeing what everyone came up with!

Of course the gifts were exciting and humbling and so appreciated! We got lots of much-needed items and of course little man's wardrobe continues to grow. My mom also outdid herself with another precious blanket that I am in love with!


It was great being surrounded once again by so many sweet women and just feeling all the love from family and friends. My dear friend Cassie prayed over me and my little guy before she left which meant so much. And my lovely Lacey is going to have her little girl in less than 3 weeks- I can hardly believe it.

Major thanks to my momma and sister for a wonderful, fun-filled afternoon- they are the BEST.

And I couldn't end this post without at least mentioning that today is my adorable niece's 3rd birthday! Her favorite parts of the baby shower were definitely the Oreo truffles and my giant whale balloon ;)

  1. I love how they wrapped the window (sheets?) - Is that a weird thing to pick out? LOL, I think it looks great and very in the theme.

    Love the blanket your mom made too.

    Happy birthday to your niece! That's a great shot.

  31. Ahhh! Too stinking cute! I love having the guests do something while you open gifts. I HATE having to open gifts in front of groups, it's terrifying and I always get so embarrassed for no reason, so that's the perfect distraction! I'll have to remember that if I ever throw a shower :)
