hometown baby shower!

Ever since we first announced that we were expecting a baby, we've been amazed by the outpouring of love and excitement that we've been shown. Such a blessing! Well, that only continued last weekend as we were given our first shower in Abilene. It was absolutely perfect and so much fun!
the invitation
hostesses: Julie, Pam, Linda, Judy, (me), Raquel & Lisa

some of the decor...girly, girly...just how i like it!
gluten-free brunch
my sweet temple friends that came along!
favors & gifts
adorable diaper cake made by julie...it's still assembled in the nursery!
my beautiful momma...AKA Sugar :)
fun baby goodies, guests, and one sweet baby girl!
more fun gifts including Jaqs' 1st tennies & swim-suit!
and the loot in the nursery
The shower was even better than I could have ever imagined. I felt so loved and extremely thankful for the many friends that we have that care so much about us and our baby girl. Jaqs will have no shortage of love, that's for sure! It's a special thing to be in a room full of people celebrating your unborn child. Something I've looked forward to for some time. A great big THANK YOU to the ladies who hosted this party for us! Y'all are so wonderful, and I'm grateful for you.

I've been a little MIA around here, and you can probably see why! I've been in nesting mode. The nursery is ready, baby clothes have all been washed & organized, necessities assembled...we're just baby waitin'! There's basically one thing that's keeping me from posting nursery pictures, but hopefully the chandelier will be hung this weekend so I can get on that. I'm sure you're on the edge of your seat, right? ;)

Our Temple friends had a shower for us this weekend, so I'll be back soon to share that! Get ready for some serious cuteness.
Hope your week is of to a good start!
