little one on the way

June 9, 2014

i am so blessed to have friends and family who are ecstatic like me for this little baby that's on his way.  they decided to have a baby shower... well showers... to celebrate with me!!  i am so grateful for everything they have done and cannot wait to someday have a shower for them as well!!  

my purdue girlfriends outdid themselves!!  they had a boiler up baby shower for me while they were all in town.  it was so adorable and i had a lot of fun reminiscing on our purdue days, talking about the baby and everything else going on in each of our lives.  

they had the cutest boilermaker details!!  everything was gold and black.  the food & drink were all themed after our favorite places on campus.  we had pita pit for lunch (i was obsessed with this in west lafayette!!)  den pop's were the cheapest and largest pops ever... we frequently went to get these with some scrounged up change. insomnia cookies were a senior year thing, they were not near our apartment but warm cookies could be delivered anywhere on campus 24 hours a day - that equals bad news! harrys & fiesta burritos were just purdue deliciousness.  harrys was a bar... i actually don't think i ever ate anything there besides free popcorn and fiesta had enchilada style burritos. only lindsay & i appreciated these but they were amazing!! i wish they had these in minnesota. all the food themes and details were so cute to make it feel like a boilermaker experience!! 

the same weekend my minnesota girlfriends had a joint shower for us three preggos. it was 'you are my sunshine' themed and everything turned out adorable as well. with two boys and one girl on the way they went with a gender neutral theme which was perfect and 'sunny' for the spring time.  it even worked out that it was a really sunny nice day and people were finally starting to get into yard work & outside projects. 

below was the adorable drops of sunshine party favor that everyone got who attended.  i love them!! 

everything was so bright, vibrant and fresh!!  i loved the yellow and white colors everywhere and you can never go wrong with delicious egg bakes, fruit and breakfast sweets.  all was great!! 

we all got such sweet and thoughtful gifts!!  homemade quilts, the teeniest toms, my crib sheets and much much more.  i love it all!! getting some of the baby's stuff situated in the nursery makes it all come together that much more.  i cannot believe this little guy will be here in less than 9 weeks!! 

all of the wonderful hostesses with the three mom-to-bes.  it was so much fun!!! i am grateful for each of these women and love the friendships we have.  i am looking forward to our children all being best friends, play date pals, and cousins.  it is going to be such an exciting summer for all of us!!
