Baby Shower x 2

by HEAB on September 12, 2010

It’s been a weekend ‘o baby love…

On Saturday, I attended my best friend’s younger sister’s baby shower. Catherine, the mama-to-be, is due next month.


My best friend Carrie, Me, and Catherine.

Catherine, I remember when you were in diapers yourself! Can’t believe you’re about to have a little one of your own. I’m so happy for you!

Today was the HEABlet’s shower…

The spread was amazing. My mom made all the cupcakes, both carrot cake and chocolate chip cream cheese flavored, and Alice, CD’s mom, provided the beautiful flower arrangements. Gerbera Daisies are my favorite. Thanks moms! :)

We also had fresh veggie pizza, quinoa salad with avocado, Gena’s raw Mini Pizzettes, and Vanilla Sugar’s Reuben Dip. I sent the last two recipes to my mom when she asked me what kind of food I wanted at the shower, and they both turned out delicious. Again, thanks mom. You throw a fabulous party!

Many thanks to my friends Cherie, Carrie, and Erin for hosting as well.

I filled my plate with veggie pizza, quinoa salad, pimiento cheese, crab dip, and lots of reuben dip. Really, you must try Vanilla Sugar’s recipe. Amazing!

By the time the shower was over, I had completely OD’d on cheese and cupcakes, but it was totally worth every bite. The HEABlet received such amazing gifts – I don’t think we’ll have to buy her any clothes for about a year. Thanks again to everyone who showered me and the HEABlet with love today. We’re both extremely grateful to have each of you in our lives.

Don’t forget to enter my Naturally Nutty Giveaway. Winner will be announced sometime tomorrow. Goodnight…me and my very full baby bump are off to bed! :)
