It felt like de ja vous of my bridal luncheon since we were at Rebecca's mom's house (which I sadly realized afterwards, maybe this was the last event we will have there!) with a lot of my dear friends who were in our wedding, and several of my mom's dearest friends who have been like second, third, and extra mothers in my life. Not that I need extra moms, because we all know I have the greatest one in the world! Laura agrees!But there are a few girls who might argue that they feel the same way about their own moms, and they are the ones who threw this shower for the Pea.Kelly and I have been friends since were were together since middle school; have known Rebecca since 3rd grade, and Steph has been with me since my 102.1 jamz listening days in highschool. Kelly has led the way for us with her family and I feel like we were just having her baby shower! Instead, she was there with her precious Jackson and 9 month old Katie, and I'm so glad to not be the total pioneer of this road! (You would think I was having a baby boy for sure with all of the blue in this picture - thank goodness for that strap of pink in my shoes!) These girls did so much for this fun lunch shower including my favorite chicken salad, putting a fan by my chair at lunch, getting me the most fabulous diaper bag, delicious pink lemonade cake squares with precious little birds on it that matched the invitations and the mobile in her room. The bird theme, by the way has been completely unplanned. I saw a mobile in a nursery while on a house tour months and months ago that I loved and scoured the internet for. The closest thing I could find to it was this. In case you don't want to look at this link, it was $110. Did you just spit out your drink? Yes, I did too when I found it. So I turned to crafty Katie Kate to see if she thought she could recreate it for me. She was up for the task, but I was still determined to find it. Terry said he would go knock on the door of the house where we saw it, but before we got around to that, we were on a trip to the Pottery Barn Outlet in SC looking for other things for the house when VOILA. There it was, the very mobile I'd been scouring the internet for! For fifteen dollars. Yes, that's right. Fifteen dollars. I was beyond excited! And the girls didn't even know about the mobile when they picked the invitation or decided to do the cakes. Definitely meant to be, huh?I had a blast getting to love on and be loved on by these wonderful girls and women in my life and was so blessed by all of the fun and wonderful things they brought to shower the sweet Pea with. Our guest room/storage room/ironing room/where to store laundry while it's waiting to be folded room is SERIOUSLY filling up. That September closing on the house can't come soon enough!
[Side note - please look at these blonde headed/dark headed matches in daughters and moms with Rebecca and Kelly. This is hilarious and scary to me all at the same time - What will I do if this baby girl comes out with BLONDE hair?! After all, Terry did have blonde curls until he was 6!]
