DC Baby Shower

This past weekend my dear friends threw me an incredible baby shower filled with laughter, love, and a lot of personal touches that made this day especially special.  

I was just a day shy of 32 weeks and decided to show off my baby bump with some of the cute newborn clothing they used as decoration!  Wait... can you believe there are only 8 weeks left?


Really delicious cupcakes, Izze {a recent preggo craving} and the most beautiful fruit salad.

It was so great to have everyone there!  Lauren flew in from Kentucky {sadly her new home} and a ton of these girls live close, but we haven't had the chance to catch up because life gets crazy.  It was wonderful to see everyone.  I love these girls!!

Please also observe the intensity in which Katie is eating her cupcake.  Classic.

The rubber duckies were adorable!

{and clearly the host amused herself by taking pictures of them!}

Uber crafty.  
Love the onsies.  
Love the yarn "clothes line."

I don't even know where to begin on the generosity of these ladies!
Some of the highlights captures on film above:

Capitol Hill Onesie
Lax Onesie made by Dani's Sister of Happy Hollis Design
The Boon Squirt spoon that I was seriously explaining.
Wipes wrapped in Diapers
A trash can for dirty diapers and a book about poop to go along with it!

Needless to say, I laughed hysterically during the present opening and was overwhelmed by the outpouring from these girls.

Anna C, Anna B, and Me

These ladies connected to find me a place to live when I first started working in DC and have been an incredible blessing in our lives ever since!  I am so excited we are all pregnant together and have the chance to share this journey with one another!

Who will pop first?

Beautiful Favors
Love Ducks
Can you ever get enough ducks?

A HUGE thanks to these ladies
 {and Lina, not pictured
for showering me so well!


  1. What a beautiful shower! I love that they were able to infuse lots of blue and the ducks, oh the ducks! Such an adorable touch.

  2. Shannon! Love those pics. So glad the shower turned out well! :)

  3. You can pop first! It was a great shower. What program do you use to make your photo collages? I've done similar things with PPT, but that always seems to lessen the quality of the image.
