Hometown Shower

This weekend my Aunt Ann, cousin Casey and dearest friend Jennifer had a shower for me. It was a blast. I have been keeping a mental list that compares my experiences waiting for Christian to come home to what a pregnant mom goes through. I added to that list at my shower when I was able to have a few beers. Something we hope an 8 month pregnant woman would not do at her shower.

I want to thank all of my family, and friends for helping me celebrate Christian's impending arrival. I feel like it was over so fast and I didn't give everyone enough attention. Although, I probably would have those same feelings had it lasted two or three times as long.

My aunt Ann hands me a gift while Jennifer keeps a list for me.

My mom's side.


The Grandmas and me

Since the shower I have been able to spend more time getting the nursery together since I was fortunate enough to receive the organizational items from the registry. I might even finish "Phase II" by the middle of this week.


  1. I can't wait to see Phase II of the nursery! You look great and your shower sounds like it was a great time! How exciting!!!

  2. I really enjoyed myself. I hope all of the guests did as well.

  3. Hi Rachel:) Aww, how fun! It looks like everybody had a fun time, and you are just glowing... I love your dress, too, btw. :)

    I'm so excited for you guys!! It won't be long now...... :)

  4. Lissa it's so nice to hear from you. I hope you're doing well. I really like the dress too. I think I may take it with me when I travel.
