Kevin and I are surrounded by the BEST people. We are so appreciative of the love and support and advice and gifts and shared excitement that family and friends, near and far, have offered. It is truly a blessing that our little girl will be joining a world that includes these people.
Back in August, a Junior League friend put together a tea party shower for me and another JL friend who was due in early October (she recently had a baby girl!). I adore high tea and it was so fun to get together with some of my favorite ladies and celebrate. A perfectly girly shower!
In early October, a wonderful family friend and her team of top-notch helpers put together the most gorgeous and thoughtful shower I can imagine. The theme was “Oh The Places She’ll Go” and it was so perfect. I had the best time, chatting with friends and family, laughing, eating the delicious food, and enjoying the hospitality of this lovely group of hostesses.
^ She is definitely the hostess with the mostess! I love Honnie. ^
^ With my mom and sista. ^
In mid-October, a few of the sweet ladies that I work with organized a shower at work. There was delicious food, adorable decorations (including a diaper cake, homemade by one of the hostesses), and it was a great chance to catch up with people at work. This was especially fun because Kevin was also there for the gift opening. And the candy bar in the diaper game – he was really good at it. I think that alone has earned him the key responsibility of head diaper changer. :)
Last but definitely not least, a couple of Kevin’s friends threw him a diaper party at a local brewery/restaurant last Sunday. It was co-ed, so I got to tag along as well (I stuck with an Arnold Palmer rather than trying something on tap). One of Kevin’s good female friends was an organizer, so there were even decorations! I told Kevin that I think this is highly unusual for a diaper party, so he should feel especially honored. We went home with a truck full of diapers after a really fun afternoon of football, tasty drinks, and great food (chicken and waffles – need I say more).
How lucky are we to have these amazing people in our lives?
When did you last feel completely spoiled by loved ones?
