Baby Shower

My aunt Kim made these gorgeous mini cheesecake cupcakes that were seriously to die for!

The 30 week bump!  I realized this is probably one of the very last photos we will have taken where it's just Matt, Hank, and me.

I'm not huge on party games, so this was kind of a fun one.  I consulted Matt on my answers, so they aren't just my opinion!

The amazing macarons were from Incredibly Delicious, my favorite bakery of all time.  They also did all of the desserts for our wedding.  These flavors were pistachio, strawberry, lemon, and my personal favorite: black currant with dark chocolate ganache!

My amazing mama and me before the guests arrived.

Handsome Hank in one of his famous bowties.  I don't know what we were discussing below, but it sure seems serious.

Food.  For.  Days.

These gorgeous glam baby shower invites were from an Etsy shop.  We just paid to download the file, and then had a local store print them for us.

Happy New Year, everyone!  Somehow with the holidays time just really got away from me, and it has been way too long since I posted anything.   I thought I would share some pictures from the gorgeous baby shower my mom and mother-in-law threw for me two weekends ago.  Since it was in the dead of January, and we don't know whether Baby S is a boy or a girl, I decided to go with a glam theme.  The colors were mainly black and gold, and it worked out well because I was actually able to incorporate some items into the shower that were actually used at my wedding!  I am the type of person who hates to buy things that she will only use once, so it was great to re-purpose some of the decorations from my wedding.  Now if I can only figure out another occasion on which to wear my wedding dress... ;)
The dress I am wearing in the pictures was a sale item from Modcloth.  I get tons of my dresses from their website, and it's safe to say that I am obsessed!  This one was not a maternity dress, but when I read the reviews, everyone said it fit "like a tent."  That's how I knew it was meant to be!  At this stage in my pregnancy, I would wear flow dresses every single day if I could; they are just so comfortable.  And, in my typical overdressed fashion, I added an old gold headband that I got from Urban Outfitters.  As every dancer and former dancer knows, no look is truly complete without some sort of bling in your hair!

Hope everyone's 2016 is off to an amazing start!  What are you most looking forward to about this year?
