The countdown to baby continues, as my girlfriends threw me a beautiful shower this weekend! They kept almost everything a surprise from me, so when I showed up at Nellcote on Sunday I was blown away by all the special details, and elegant touches they had incorporated. It was perfect! My mom flew in for the occasion, and so many of my favorite Chicago friends and family came to celebrate.
One of the countless creative things the hostesses did was ask everyone to bring their favorite baby book with a message for our little guy written inside, the result blew me away! We now have a huge basket full of beautiful books (all different, I can’t believe there were no repeats!) and everybody wrote the most thoughtful, hilarious, touching messages I could have ever imagined. I can’t wait to read them to this baby boy, and then cherish all the messages as he gets older. Such an amazing idea for a shower!
Hope everybody’s week is off to a great start! Don’t forget there’s still plenty of time to enter last week’s $300 gift card giveaway.
