A Beautiful Baby Shower

I went to another amazing baby shower this weekend for a great friend, Sarah, one of my sorority sisters from college (and sophmore year housemate!). As you all know, I LOVE baby showers! But this one took the cake! It was by far the fanciest and more upscale baby shower I've ever been to. It reminded me of something you'd see pictures of in Martha Stewart.

It was very laid back and everyone was sitting around all dressed up and drinking wine. (Thank goodness the one thing that still fits me well is my one decent dressy outfit!!!) They had a huge table set up will all these little appetizers, a shrimp cocktail, and fruit and cheese. I was quite please.... but even more pleased when they said there was lunch... complete with crab quiche that was to die for!! I mean come on now, who am I, at almost 9 months pregnant to pass up lots of yummy food that I could never make! :)

After we were all stuffed (at least I was anyway), we played a few games. The funniest was watching some of my prissy sorority sisters who aren't married and have no kids try to guess which candy bar was melted inside of a diaper. You had to be there... trust me, it was funny!

Then I got to sit there and watch her open all of her amazingly cute girly gifts. I have to admit... I was a little, ok, a lot, jealous. Shhh... don't tell my hubby I still want a little girl one day!! I made her a bouquet filled with baby items (onesies, socks, washclothes, etc.) I am very proud... so of course I had to add a picture of it!!

And here's a picture of me (at 39 weeks) and Sarah (at about 35 weeks). I look so terrible in this picture! LOL!

And to top it all off.... I even got some cute little cakes to take home. Which where very yummy!

I am so looking forward to another baby shower! Now I just need to wait for another friend to get pregnant.......
