Last weekend, my sister and friends threw Blaire and me the most adorable baby shower. The theme was backyard barbecue, but with a girly twist. The decorations were all in pinks and greens. It was precious and so much thought was put into every detail.
Aren't these mason jars adorable?
My sister, who knows my love of bbq, had the food catered by my favorite bbq restaurant in town. The food was phenomenal! Brisket, pulled pork, mac & cheese, beans, fruit salad - it was all delicious!
The girls enjoyed their "grown up" Arnold Palmers. Sweet tea vodka - yum! Or so I remember.
Me, Sis & Mom
How cute is this picture? My friend Lauren is expecting baby Eli about a month after Blaire. I can't wait for the two of them to become the best of buddies.
I know self deprecation is annoying but I have to say it just once - holy cow is my face fat. I had no idea how bad it was until I saw these pictures. Blaire is so worth it but I can't wait to go back to having just one chin.
The book I'm reading - Go The F**k to Sleep. Absolutely hilarious, if you're not offended by profanity. There's a narration by Samuel L. Jackson floating around the internet that is amazing.
Each guest went home with a bottle of Blaire's BBQ Sauce.
The best friends a girl could ask for. I hope that one day Blaire will be lucky enough to have an equally amazing group of women in her life.
It was a wonderful day and I'm so grateful for all the sweet friends & family who came to the shower and spoiled Blaire with so much love - and a mountain of beautiful gifts. Special thanks to my sister Jill who spent months planning each thoughtful detail. I appreciated each and every one. You're the best Jilly!
And thanks to my dear friend Jenny for taking all the beautiful pictures in this post and many more. You're too sweet, JP. Thanks for capturing the day's memories in pictures I can one day show to Blaire.
