My beautiful aunts were the hostesses for our little Delaney’s very first shower!
We had fabulous spread of food, here’s what was on the menu:
Chicken Salad on Mini Crossants
Hot Spinach & Artichoke Dip with Crackers
Pink Tinted White Chocolate Dipped Pretzel Rods
Baby Delaney Iced Sugar Cookies
Paula Dean’s Strawberry Cake (Decorated with fresh flowers)
The shower was a “long distance” shower so my aunts used this for the invite:
It’s hard to live so far away when a baby girl is on the way!
Ashley’s doctor says all is well but recommends limited travel!
Since she can’t travel far, let’s make her day by showering her new baby with gifts!
Since most of my family all lives in Arkansas where I grew up about 10 hours away from my current home, guests sent gifts to my aunt’s house. One aunt lives in Mississippi about 3 hours closer for us to drive into than my mom’s house. So some made the long drive but it was a much more intimate shower. They live streamed part of it for those invited in a private group on Facebook so even at a distance everyone was able to still take part in the festivities!
We all had a great time and since it was smaller I went with a slightly more casual look. This has been my favorite outfit for the past couple months. The jeans are the maternity version of my favorite Paige brand skinnies and I LOVE them! I’m already wondering how long I can continue to wear them after the baby is born. They are the softest, most comfortable pants I’ve ever owned. Move over yoga pants the maternity jeans are here! The top isn’t maternity at all, its just a really flowy Free People option which I will definitely be wearing for years. I had my eye on this one for a while so I was thrilled when my mother-in-law gave it to me as a Christmas gift. I’m linking the details for all of it here:
There has been so much going on since Christmas but I’m excited to be able to catch up with everyone on here in the coming weeks. Things are happening so quickly and time seems to be flying by. Can you believe on Monday I’ll be 30 weeks pregnant?!
A lot more to come on the blog soon but in the mean time I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
