Last week my military family threw what is quite possibly, in my totally biased opinion, the sweetest shower ever.
They kept it a complete surprise from me. At some point they did tell me what day the shower was on…but I didn’t even know the time until the morning of. A couple people text me and said they had received an invitation and it was the cutest thing they’d ever seen and I’m inclined to agree.
For anyone who doesn’t know me there are a few things I’m seriously passionate about. Those would be (in no particular order) my pets, my husband, Disney, Harry Potter, glitter, pink things, penguins and my sports teams: Sacramento Kings, Boston Red Sox and the New Orleans Saints. I’m pretty obsessed over all of these.
So they surprised me with a football and Saints inspired baby shower.
Delicious and football themed treats! Football brownies, cupcakes and deviled eggs. Also popcorn, BBQ little smokies ( a favorite of mine!) and veggies. I love me some football food!
Another really cool thing these lovely gals cooked up was having a football for baby that all of the attendees signed in gold sharpie. When I told my husband about it later he was all excited that baby boy got his first football!
Among games like baby shower bingo and a super cute name that baby animal game, they embraced my love of football and my desire to cloth diaper with a “put a cloth diaper on a football” relay race. My team won. 🙂
It was such a great day! I’d had a really rough week and my friends reminded me how lucky I am! I can never thank these three girls enough for their love and support over the last nine months. They are simply amazing.
And thank you everyone who came to join in the football fun! You are all so amazingly sweet and I am lucky to know you! (Sorry we missed you in this picture Lindsay!)
Baby and I are feeling all kinds of love. Thank you all so much!!
