Celebrating Baby

I am convinced that it is life events like this, the blessing of a new baby, that really make you stand back and reflect on the people around you and the life that you lead.  I am truly in awe of the wonderful friends and family that have surrounded us in the last few months with love and celebration as we anxiously await the arrival of Baby B.  This weekend we celebrated with fab friends at a couples baby shower.

The gray sky cleared as Saturday went on and it was cool and sunny when party time rolled around.  We all gathered at bestie P's house, where dear besties P, K, D and A had slaved to put together a baby bash for about 50 people.  No small undertaking for sure, but everything was just perfect.  Zsa Zsa proclaimed that "it just couldn't have been any nicer" and I'd have to agree! 

We dined on BBQ from Dillards and a truck load of apps and southern sides from the kitchens of the lovely hostesses.  After eating our weight in divine cuisine, the girls giggled as the men were forced to play shower games (that they actually enjoyed), opened gifts and enjoyed a wonderful time with friends.  Dessert was adorable cupcakes, that matched the invitation of course.  Everything was just charmed!

A few pics of the decor and festivities.  The hostesses thought I'd lost my mind when they saw me snapping away pics of cupcakes, boiled peanuts and baked beans!

We couldn't have asked for anything sweeter, prettier, more fun and an overall WONDERFUL time!  Thanks for making this so special with us!
