This past weekend was my baby shower. It was such a wonderful day, and I enjoyed spending time with family and friends that truly spoiled Baby P. I’ll let the photos do the talking, but first…let me tell you about what I wore!
In my January clothing budget, I asked for some help on what dress I should wear. Unfortunately, none of them were quite right on me in person, but luckily, a great British company called Seraphine came to the rescue! Ladies…if you are pregnant, they have such gorgeous clothes…from maxi dresses to dresses for the office, to formal gowns. Not to mention they have everything else you could ever need to dress your bump (and even clothing for nursing!) Plus, they ship worldwide and have free US returns, which is great for us pregnant gals because things fit a little differently from one day to the next!
Anyways, I browsed the website and immediately knew I wanted this dress. Apparently, a lot of celebrities wear Seraphine clothing, and this dress was no exception. In fact, the beautiful (and fellow soon-to-be momma to a boy) Carrie Underwood wore this graphic maternity dress:
When I got the dress in the mail, it was even cuter in person. It was soft and stretchy and contoured the bump. And the graphic print was slimming, yet the side ruching showed off the bump. It’s super versatile too- I plan to wear it to the office, and can imagine pairing it with boots (ankle or regular length) and layering with a blazer or fun jacket.
Now onto the shower! My Mom hosted the event, and every last detail was so cute and thoughtful. She put so much work into it! My godmother also helped with some of the decor like the centerpieces.
Adorable party favors for the guests…
(My Mom made these bibs out of my Dad’s old work shirts…how cute is that?!) And speaking of, here is my Mom and I…
We enjoyed a delicious brunch, played a couple fun games (including baby-themed Price is Right and a boy name game) before opening gifts. Man oh man, Baby P is one spoiled little guy! Such generous gifts…I was in awe! During gift opening, guests also filled out a page with advice for me (and as I read through it this week, I legit cried my eyes out…) Ahh the hormones! :-)
Guests were asked to bring a book instead of a card so we could stock Baby P’s library…
And so much great baby gear/tools from fellow Mommas!
It was SUCH a wonderful day…looking back on it, I feel so blessed to have such wonderful friends and family in our lives. I enjoyed every second and I know Baby P did too!
