Shower 1 Recap

31w 6d

Last Saturday was my first shower, and I have been waiting to write about it in hopes that someone, anyone would have some photos to send to me, but evidently not. So here is a run-down, from my memory:

My mom and sister worked their asses off for this shower and it showed. Everything was beautiful and totally "me". The theme was blue and brown of course and we held the shower in my parent's gorgeous backyard. The weather, like I said before was absolutely perfect. Not hot at all, overcast, PERFECT. I think there were about 30 people there and it was wonderful. I feel like I really got to take the time and talk to everyone that was there. I miss seeing my family A LOT and don't really get the chance to spend that much time with them, so it was nice to see everyone. My Meme (grandma) made it despite recently having surgery and I was so happy to have her there. I had people come from near and far to be there and I felt so lucky to have so many people care about me and this baby.

The food. Oh the food. My mom did a "Tiff's Cravings" theme so there were 2 types of mac n' cheese, mini BBQ hamburgers, a relish tray, veggie tray, fruit, and a make-your-own strawberry shortcake bar. AND my sister bought M&M's and picked out all of the blue and brown ones. Now THAT is dedication and love!

Onto the LOOT. Again, everyone was so generous and Baby Luc will never go naked. This kid has so many clothes, more than me I think - and that's an accomplishment. We also got a lot of the essentials that we needed including our stroller (from Aunt Chrissy and Aunt Denise) that I HAD to put together and play with right away on Sunday morning. I did manage to get a picture of everything before I put it all away, and I want you to notice 2 things sitting on the chair. AWESOME.

Thank you again to everyone for coming and for all of the love and support you have given us!
