Another Baby Shower

Red Carpet Area.  She is clearly preggo but still in fashion.
Over the weekend my mom and I attended my friend's shower.  I actually wore a dress which hardly every happens!  I've known Eb for about four years now and she was a bridesmaid in my wedding.  She is the last person any of us thought would get pregnant next.  She's not really mommy crazy and never has been but she is happy about her little girl that is on the way and her and her hubby are getting ready for the major life change that is to come.  This is seriously one of the nicest baby shower's I've ever been to.  It was at a nice restaurant with a buffet of some very good food.  A pack of diapers got you a VIP party pass and they had a photographer set up in front of the red carpet for pics.  There were a few games, some prizes and really cute party favors.  The cake was Zebra print with Pink trim.
Mommy of honor
She got about a million presents.  Including not one, not two but three car seats!!  Which means there is one for mommy's car, daddy's car and grandma's car.  Eb is such a wonderful genuine person and it's clear just how loved she is by everyone who pitched in to help with her shower and everyone who showed up.  The cup cake centerpieces were adorable.  I think someone at our table thought maybe they were going to take one home but we helped ourselves and they were gone by the end of the party.  I had three but that's OK because they were mini's.  That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.  
Adorable centerpieces.  These are actually tiny frosted cupcakes.
My mom actually ended up staying the night and we had a nice time sitting outside in the backyard by the fire pit and chatting.  This is the year of babies among our circle of friends.  Of Mj's friends there have been three babies born this year already and there is one more due in November.  Everyone keeps asking if we are next and I'm sorry to disappoint but the answer on that one is no.  I won't be having my own baby shower any time soon if ever.  I have a one year old nephew and for us I'm thinking that's plenty.

The mommy of honor is too cute. And I love the honesty here - I hate people who ask when someone else is having kids. Why do they care so much? It just drives me nuts. I'm glad you have an opinion on the matter and you stick with it. Kudos to you!!

Hope you have a lovely weekend!

Lovely baby shower. Your friend is so cute. People will always ask when you are having a baby, but one have to be personally ready to bring into the world a little person.

Love colour read on you :).

I adore the vip theme, very cute! I think you are so on point about waiting to have children and just really evaluating how a child will alter your marriage & life. Personally, the more I travel, the more I learn, I can now understand why many choose not to have children.
