I've been showered
As you will see in the picture below, I didn't have any fun at all at my baby shower.
I know, I know. I look ridiculously happy. Needless to say, it was a great night.
I had good intentions to fully document all the fabulous food and people, but I ended up having way too much fun to take pictures. I asked around, and turns out no one took pictures of the food. When I explain what the food choices were I think you will understand. It is hard to take pictures of food when your focus is on eating food.
The menu was an array of delectable homemade appetizers including:
-Mini grilled sandwiches with porcini mushrooms and fontina cheese. You can catch a glimpse of them being grilled by miss Laura in the picture below
-Mini crab cakes with cilantro
-Delightfully stuffed mushrooms
-Mini Greek spanakopita quiche bites
-Mini pizzas with prosciutto, fontina cheese, and basil
-An array of every veggie known to man plus yummy dip
Isn't my mom adorable in her polka dot dress? I wonder where she got it - oh wait, I gave it to her! I'm such a good daughter.
And for dessert:
-An array of fruit (kiwi, blackberries, pineapple, strawberries, watermelon, honey dew and blue berries) with chocolate & cream fondue for dipping
Unfortunately I was so distracted by my fabulous guests that I wasn't able to completely eat myself sick (as I would have preferred). But I did get 2 plates of appetizers and 1 plate of fruit and chocolate.
We had food, presents, and lots of fun conversations with the wonderful guests! I would detail my favorite gifts with pictures - but this would be an absolutely impossible feat because everything I received was so adorable!
Thank you to the WONDERFUL hosts (Laura and Leslie) for throwing me such a great party! Aren't they beautiful?
And just for fun, here is a picture of me before the shower at 30 weeks. I really need to find a new spot to take pictures, and a new pose.
I made Dave take 7 of these pictures before I would believe this is what I look like. I was pretty sure it was just the wrong angle with the first six takes. When I came out of the bedroom in this get-up he started chuckling and I said:
"This outfit makes me look really pregnant - huh?"
Dave responded "No...I think it is the belly that makes you look pregnant."
Now that just doesn't make any sense at all.
