This Saturday was my baby shower, thrown by my two best friends, sister, MIL, step-mom and mom. They did such an amazing, thoughtful job that I am still blown away just thinking about it.

The theme was "Little Cowboy" and they seriously thought of every little detail to go with the theme. I'll post pictures of the decorations below. We had sweet tea and lemonade and stuff to make chicken and pork sliders with amazing bbq sauce from a place down the street. There was also bbq chips, watermelon, and the cutest cowboy-themed cupcakes.

There was a diaper raffle, so I was hooked up with enough of each size N-3 so that I really doubt we will need to buy any diapers until Cole is a size 4!!!! We played a purse scavenger hunt (they called it The Purse Roundup lol), a candy jar guessing game, and they also did some raffles. The prizes were awesome and all baking and cooking themed.

I got so much stuff for Cole, including $200 in BRU gift cards and $100 in Target gift cards, as well as some cash. This is great because we still need to buy the breast pump and a stroller. We got a ton of clothes and a lot of other essentials, brest friend pillow, bath stuff, diaper pail, pack-n-play, activity gym. I'm overwhelmed and excited when I look in the bedroom!

Here are pictures:

And my belly pic from that day just for fun because I was dolled up lol:


I have a ton more pics but figured this is more than enough... I don't want everyone to get bored lol. Thanks for looking!

Aww thank you so much! My hair has clip-n extensions in it that I got for my wedding...I figured I'd get some use out of them. My goal is to get my hair that long...some day!

Thanks Melissa, I still can't believe all the stuff we got Since this is baby #2 I thought it would be more low key. I guess not!

It really was a fantastic time. And it made me realize what great family and friends I have. I haven't been very social this pregnancy because of all of my health issues and being on bed rest. It was really nice to catch up with everyone. Their excitement about Cole made me even more excited (I didn't think that was possible!)
