Let it Rain, Candy!

The hostess made this sweetness.

This past weekend, the loveliest of my lovely friends threw me an amazing baby shower!

It all started with sweet sugary pink goodness and blossomed into a book collection fit for a candy queen and her princess. Among some of my favorite things about this shower was this creative idea; my friend asked all the guests to include a book  of their choice in lieu of a card. It’s got to be one of the best ideas and I urge you to do it for any baby shower you host or suggest it to anyone who might be having a shower. The array of books we received is the most thoughtful and creative I could have imagined.

I had a great time seeing all my friends and felt incredibly loved throughout the entire event. One friend flew out from Pittsburgh, another drive two hours, and the hostess come from 1.5 hours away! Talk about good ‘uns, those are the best! Not to mention all the goods we were given – the loot, ahhh, the LOOT is out of this world!

The whole event went by incredibly too fast for me. I wanted to be able to visit with all my friends for hours more! In my book, that’s a good sign of a successful event. It really was perfect and I had a fantastic time.

I am grateful to my friends who were able to make it and all of those that weren’t, but still managed to surprise me with their generosity. I’m a lucky girl and hope that all the other mom’s-to-be out there get to feel this kind of love.

Yummy sandwiches, we were hungry and already dove in before the shot was taken!
