Isn't this sign so cute?  I wish I would have held it up for a few photos (hindsight...) :)

Everyone thought the blue wine was bubble bath (which would have also been a cute favor, come to think of it!)

 I may have said this before but I live on a most magical street- kids galore and an amazing group of women as my neighbors...there are 3 right here and I love them so...

My husband loves this photo, because he loves any picture of me with what he calls a "real" smile or laugh.  I do NOT like my huge, sharky smile at all but I posted it because it is genuine and I really am laughing through most of my days... and isn't that a blessing?😊

Friendship-- real, lasting, heartfelt, true friendship-- is one of life's greatest treasures.  I treasure this girl beyond words...

Its a Boy!  Could the name of the color be more appropriate? :)

These women are my heart.  I say this all the time, but its true.  We spend an afternoon or an evening together every 2 months or so, come rain or shine, and have done this for maybe 10 years.  They make my world go round and enrich my life .

So here they are....(most) of the people (the girls, anyway) who matter the most in my life, gathered together to celebrate and embrace my little guy.  I am astounded at my good fortune, I do not take it for granted, and I love them back so hard...

{Written over Big Brother-- is anyone else watching this? } Alright, so I wanted to share a few more details with you of my baby shower... I literally could do 10 posts because everything turned out so cute!    Alright, picking up where we last left off...After we got the basics down-- the place, the colors, the flowers-- we started to drill down into the details.  One of the things we wanted to do was create a favor table for our guests where they could take a variety of things home that went beyond the candy buffet (I am a sugar-a-holic though, so the candy was still there) to a few more items.  I started to think about things that were blue/gold or that popped (like my preggo belly!) and I came up with blue sparkling wine, blue gumballs, blue and gold soap that said Oh Baby (this phrase was a sub-theme- the invitations said "Oh baby" and we had this on the photo booth and the dessert table and the soap too!), OPI nail polish (the color is called Its a Boy!) and a small bag of custom cookies.  I feel so much gratitude inside for the love I am constantly surrounded with and part of my goal was to let my guests know and to just create an afternoon where they felt spoiled and loved in return. 

Then, we were off to the dessert table. People, this is an area that I consider my specialty.  I am not really a foodie and I don't drink alcohol but I sure know my way around a cupcake!! Here again, I wanted things I Iove (s'mores, macaroons, rice kripsy treats), only in blue and gold and fancy.   Let me just tell you that the pastry chef did not disappoint.   I requested a funfetti cake (Come on. They are the best!) and it was the cutest (and tastiest!) bit of yum ever!  

And my dress!  I really struggled with what to wear because I haven't done a lot of maternity outfits (aside from work clothes, I've just been buying normal things a size bigger) but my bump is getting unmanageable. It is literally STRAIGHT OUT and like a basketball. Thankfully, I have had a fairly easy breezy pregnancy--nothing has swelled, nothing much else has changed but this tummy is just....out there.   And I kind of wanted to be a little fancy.   I found this Asos White dress and fell in immediate love.  I just bought it in a regular size and had it taken in because it was made to be loose and I wore gold sandals and accessories.  I felt so beautiful (something I don't really feel like when I am pregnant) Its sold out in blue but I linked the soft blush color -- maybe you can get on the waiting list because it is amazing in real life-heavy, and flowy and stunning.  I am going to have it taken in after I have this baby so I can wear it still. I LOVE it.

We also did a Snapchat Geotfilter for my shower too (you essentially create and submit a custom snapchat filter for your special day!) If you have the time, its the cutest touch for a special event in your life- email me and I would be happy to walk you through the process.  It was so cute and everyone loved it!  

All in all, it was the most magical day.  I am so grateful for the women in my life- from those I am related to, to those that through their friendship have become a part of my family.  My letter that day sort of said to everyone that when you become a mother, you realize more than ever that it takes a village to raise a child.  I am beyond blessed for those I have around me who love me, who support me, who take time out of exceptionally busy lives and travel long distances and who are there for me.  I am going to turn to each and every one of them after my little boy is born so they can help me to raise a good, honest, loyal man.   This baby boy is already so blessed!!  Thank you so much for stopping by...Sweetly, Michelle
