Our Baby Shower Weekend In Louisville

His skinny arm pose was killing me!


Ahhh, what a whirlwind of a weekend. I am happy I’m finally sitting down to write this post because it may be one of my favorites. If I am being honest, our baby shower was something I was fighting from the beginning. Much like our wedding, my mom is a super planner and wants to always celebrate me in big ways. As sweet as she is, I hate making a big deal out of things and what started as a small get together at the house quickly turned into something else. Looking back, it really was the most beautiful afternoon and I am so in debt to my mom and my friends Stephanie and Ashley for making it such a wonderful day for us. 

The shower was held at my favorite restaurant in Louisville, Ward 426. It is actually owned by a childhood friend but the decor is impeccable and the food insanely good. They created the most scrumptious two course menu for us and each course was better than the next. I wanted to try so many options and unfortunately waited too long to ask my friends for a bite, because when I looked every morsel on their plate had been devoured! Think chicken and waffles, mushroom quiche, and a shrimp and grits I’m still dreaming about. 

It was such a fun day catching up with old friends and new and we were blown away at how many people traveled to shower us and Baby T with love. As much as I did not want to play baby shower games, my friends did an amazing job at picking some pretty awesome ones and I’m not sure I’ve seen my mom’s friends so excited in a long time. You would have thought there was gold in the prizes! 

Again, I can’t thank everyone enough for making us feel so special. My girlfriends drove from all over to be with me and it really meant the world. I know Baby T felt the love and I can’t wait for him to meet all these wonderful people. Sorry for the picture overload, there were too many good ones not to share and I’ll be sharing all my outfit details next week!
