This weekend I had the privilege to host, along with great friends, a baby shower for Bradley. (For those of you that are new around here, when my girlfriends and I are together we sound like a guy's locker room because of the nicknames we use. I refer to them on this blog by their nicknames because, let's be honest, I probably don't even remember their real names. Using their real names is like wearing a bathing suit in the bathtub...it just feels awkward...) I digress...
The baby shower. The baby shower was wonderful and fun and I hope it was special for Bradley and baby Avery. I know it was special for James because he got to play golf, avoid women cackling and touching Bradley's belly while squealing in high pitched voices, yet he still got to come home to gifts. That's what I call a win-win!
Avery is so loved already and we are anxiously awaiting her arrival with lots of pink and lots of monogrammed attire!
Dave, patiently, let me save the branches from my Christmas card tree so we could do a blessing branch. Now that we've made it to May I might as well keep them for next Christmas, right?? Everyone wrote a note of encouragement, a prayer, a piece of advice, whatever blessing they wanted to leave for James, Allison and Avery.
Lots of great food, strawberry lemonade and petifores!
Avery Marion Lee...Love seeing her monogram!
The Loj put together a fun game where you had to match the different types of Candy with a baby term. For example: College Tuition = 100 Grand, Your Baby's Cheeks- Kissables
The hostesses all brought a book for Avery's library. We wrote her little notes inside :)
Girl stuff is seriously the CUTEST! Bradley is due on July 4th and I thought this outfit was just darling!
We had a candy bar set up for guests to take some goodies home with them.And it wouldn't be a party without Reams figuring out the bill! Our trusty accountant always figures out our totals but this time, she hit an all-time low! I was finishing up in the kitchen and she was going through receipts at the table when I heard her say, "This will be much easier if I just put it in a spreadsheet!" and she gets up and marches upstairs and comes down with a 10-key calculator and a laptop! I mean, that is just stuff you travel with?? I usually take my chi, my toothbrush and a few changes of underwear! I got out my camera and she said, "Do not put this on the blog!" :) I love you cookies! You can all rest assured the calculations were perfect!
I hope you all had a great weekend! And Bradley, I hope you loved being showered!!
