Utah Baby Shower


 Wasn't able to catch everyone who came in one picture (sorry if I missed you) but I am happy I got a good chunk of these amazing friends of mine in one shot! So many beautiful women inside and out that I feel so blessed to know and have the privilege of calling friends. Thank you for all the love and for being apart of my life!

 
I feel like one lucky girl to have made so many good friends since moving to Utah. When I moved here, I didn't know a soul. Fast forward almost eight years and I have had the opportunity to meet so many amazing people! I had some sweet friends offer to throw me a baby shower and the day was perfection... a tad HOT, but great none the less! At least it didn't thunderstorm like previously predicted because we spent most of the shower outside, haha.
 
I of course like a classic pregnant woman, forgot to bring my camera, but thankfully everyone has a camera on their phones these days so I was able to capture some of it! It was just a great afternoon seeing people from all my different walks of life. We ate outside and just chatted away. I loved that everyone was just enjoying socializing with each other! That morning I was feeling particularly swollen and so I had my compression socks on and some slippers. I wore them over to the party which was hosted at a dear family friends house. I had every intention of taking them off once the party started, but yeah... that didn't end up happening! haha A few shout outs are in order here, first of all, my sweet mom came up for this shower because she has so many friends here that were attending and she didn't want to miss out on the fun! haha Also, my bestie Jamie drove all the way up with her mom from St. George just for my shower! Literally, she drove up Saturday morning and back after the shower, haha, crazy girl. I freakin' love her to death! And then obviously to the ladies who worked hard to put this shin dig together, Sasha, Autumn, Tearsa, Molly and my Mom. YOU ALL ROCK! Actually all my friends rock, thanks for being apart of my life and for wanting to celebrate my little girl. It means the world to me! Thank you!
 
 
 
Everyone wrote down wishes for the baby and clipped them to the string of lights!
 
 
I had every intention of taking off my compression socks and slippers once the party started, and like I mentioned above...uh, that didn't happen! HAHA. #pregnancyproblems
 
 
Love the fact that Sasha had on these cute little cat flats and I am wearing my piggy slippers! haha
 
 
This butter cream cake that Autumn made was out of this world scrumptious! As evidenced by the photo of me and Jamie. Of course this would be one of the only photos of us from the shower! haha
 

Some of these pictures came out a bit blurry (phone quality, sorry!) But I had to share the ones I got with some of these amazing people I love. I am talking EFY 2006, friends from high school, friends from college, friends and co-workers from past jobs, friends from blogging… I LOVE YOU ALL!
