Lamb Baby Shower

For games we played the price is right, where guest had to try and guess the store price of various everyday baby items. We showed all the items, people wrote down their guesses and then after all of the items we revealed the real prices. Whose ever total was the least off won! It was really fun seeing how off we all were! We also played a little opt-in game called “Name that Baby Animal.” Each guest was given a list of animals that they had to write the baby version of next to; whoever got the most correct won.

Each guest also filled out a “Baby Forecast” card where they put their predictions for the baby. The momma-to-be got to take all of these home for fun when the baby is born. They also each have a great piece of advice!

This year, soda was introduced as part of the Easter Egg Hunt. I have never seen a more hot item! Everybody wanted one! These got added because this was Brandon’s first year at our family’s Easter Egg Hunt and it was something his mom used to give them in their Easter Egg Baskets, I love non-traditional mixed with tradition and am not going to argue about such a tasty one!

Isn’t she precious? She only has a few weeks left as the youngest grandbaby!

How cute is this Rainbow cake made by my Aunt? It was a white cake with blackberry layers in between the colors. Cute and delicious- the best combination. You could do this in any number of color combinations, I love the ombre purple for Easter. Last but not least…

The large and in charge version of myself. This will most likely be the last maternity picture I post, I like to think of myself in my head as still looking like I did at five months haha. I know this sounds crazy to anyone who has never been pregnant, but to anyone who has been knows what I mean! I hope all of you had a wonderful Easter Sunday and remember the real reason for this Holiday, put wonderfully by a little boy in my church class- “There would be no Easter, if it weren’t for Jesus. He is what makes Easter happy.”


This little guy has already been spoiled SO much! This month we had the cutest vintage-book inspired baby shower and both me and the baby were so spoiled! It had such cute decorations and the most amazing food. Here are just a few of the highlights!

We had lemonade in mason jars on ice, already made up with fresh fruit, these were so cute and delicious!

Guest signed the sweetest nursery book that I can’t wait to read to our little boy when he comes! It’s was such a sweet touch, and so special to have kind words from all of the people that came to remember the day.

I wish I’d gotten more photos of the food. On the menu: Chickfila Chicken Nuggets, Fresh Fruit and Veggies, an amazing Spinach dip, Pie Pops, and a D.I.Y. S’mores station! That was probably my favorite part, I stayed very close to that table all afternoon!

This little guy got so many present! Both he and I are so spoiled already, I had so much fun getting all the things we need to get our nest ready for him! The tiny clothes, tiny baby-size camo boots, his bedding, a swing, not to mention tons more cute and necessary things! I feel so blessed!
