My friend, Sara, is having a baby girl in a little more than a month, or so.
She has two boys, and is joyfully anticipating a girl.
Truth be told, boy or a girl, Sara is thrilled to be having a third.
The three of us hosting the shower have had eight girls between us.
This is Sara's first girl, so we were all too eager to host.
Bless you, friend, for indulging us.
Friends came, and there was a lot of laughing.
Brown zebra print on baby girls?
I should've taken a picture.
We served Cheesecake in a Jar. I used this this recipe but left out the crust.
If you're looking for something sweet to feed everyone and have friends who are gluten free, this is the perfect thing to make.
We served whipped cream (the real stuff), reese's peanut butter cups, nuts, a fudge sauce, and berries as toppings.
For some reason (namely the sunshine) I didn't do a picture of the entire table. This is the one shot from my phone.
Formal group shots at parties are kind of old school.
But if you don't take one, you will have to remember all the details.
I'm not so great about remembering...
These are some of the women we do every day life with.
I see them at church, the grocery store, at library time, getting snow cones, walking by my house, at school, and at the swimming pool.
They agreed to this photo because they didn't want to do a group shot at the pool. Go figure. I love each one of them.
I love you, Sara.
I'm going to love having a baby girl around again.
I want your daughter to see how we spent time waiting for her. Someday she'll wonder what in world we were all thinking with our wardrobe choices, but hopefully she'll also feel pretty loved.
By the way, this little one needs a name.
Do you have a girl name you'd be willing to share with Sara?
I'm sure she'd appreciate a unique (not weird) name that no one in our town of 3,000 has. How's that for specific? Thanks!
