Couples Baby Shower

This Saturday my two college roommates, Dina and Karissa, threw a couples baby shower for Ryan and I and all of our friends. Here are some of the highlights...

Dina took pictures of all the couples as they arrived with a polaroid to place in this pre-made scrapbook and asked each of them to write a note to Ryan, Grant, and I.

Some pictures of the desserts.

Food table. The girls made BBQ pulled pork sliders, macaroni and cheese (compliments of The Pioneer Woman), The BEST spinach and artichoke dip I have EVER HAD, and a couple of other goodies. Leave it my friends to serve a delicious, carb stocked menu!!!

Straws complete with mustaches. The plates were clear with a mustache underneath too. Nice masculine touch!

The patio. Our friends were such troopers. It was a HOT Southern California day.

Necktie Thank You Cookies.

I am so thankful to have such supportive friends. It was such a special day for Ryan and I. Now all we have to do is wait for Grant to be ready join us in the world!!! Three weeks and counting as of today!!! It is starting to get pretty crazy to think that the next time I see most of the important people in my life I will be someone's Mom. EEEEEKKKKKK!!!!


A Shopping Trip

Yesterday I took a trip to Costco to pick up a few things for our couples shower tomorrow.

You wouldn't believe the looks I got. What a shopping list. 108 Beers and a cute little sleeper all purchased by a very pregnant Mommy. Ohh well, It will all be worth it tomorrow when our friends have plenty to drink!!!


A Promise

I started this blog several years ago with the purpose of just "practicing posts" here and there until I actually had some kids to post pictures and stories of. I have done a terrible job. I know I only have a few weeks left until Grant comes so I promise I am going to start posting more (If I can remember to take pictures because nobody wants to read a post that doesn't have any pictures...like this one).

I hope to find the time to post a couple of times a week so that my family (who ALL live in different states and cities) can watch Grant grow and laugh with Ryan and I as we figure out how to be parents all by ourselves!!

Here's to keeping promises!!!!
