Our first baby shower!

Yesterday I had my very own baby shower! It was such a surreal but wonderful feeling knowing that it was finally my turn to have a baby shower! I have always loved to help host and attended so many of my friend's baby showers but I always dreamed of what it would be like when it was MY shower!

I have to say that it was the most perfect shower!! My friends went out of their way to make sure that there was no detail spared! I truly felt so special and loved every minute of the shower!

The front door had a cute little sign welcoming everyone to Julee and Preslee's shower! Also they had my growing belly pics along with some ultrasound pics hanging in the frame for people to see as they walked in!

The invitation along with all the signs had the crib bedding pattern on it! It all matched and looked so cute!
The wonderful hostesses that I am truly blessed to call my friends!
Just a few weeks until we meet Annabel!! Emily at 36 weeks, me at 30!
I was so happy to have my Mom and Matt's mom at the shower today! They are going to be the best grandmas and Miss Preslee is completely spoiled by them already!
Jennifer made these precious banana pudding cups! She used food dye to make the pudding pink! These were so precious and tasted amazing!
Along with the cake and banana pudding, we had fruit kabobs, veggies with ranch, pita chips with cheesy spinach dip, and a delicious dessert called Death by chocolate!
This set-up was so pretty! The mirror is actually from Preslee's nursery so it really tied the theme together!
Once again, Rick's Bakery out did themselves on the cake! Perfect!!
I have talked about it on the blog before, but I LOVE cotton candy! The favor for all the guest was this yummy pink cotton candy!
The cotton candy table was just too cute! The sign on the table said Thanks for celebrating Sweet Preslee.
The guest had coffee punch, Peach tea punch or water to drink with all the yummy foods!
We received so many sweet things for our baby girl!! I am going to share more pics of those gifts along with more pics of friends that were there to help spoil Preslee this week!

Oh Julee, all these pictures make my heart so so happy!!!! I can’t even imagine how surreal that was for you! Can’t wait to “meet” Preslee!!! :)

I remember having my first shower and wanting to cry the whole time thinking how happy I was that it was finally my turn! Congrats! I've been reading your blog for a long time and wondered when you were going to have a baby. I didn't know that you had been having fertility problems. It seems so unfair that some of us have to go through this when we want children so badly! I'm happy to say that I've beat it now twice and baby 2 is coming late February :) God is good!
