SoCal Baby Shower

This past weekend I traveled down to Southern California to celebrate baby Greene with friends and family.

My mom made reservation for a baby shower brunch at Mimi’s cafe for 15 people and a high chair. Because of the time of day we had the whole room to ourselves which made it easy for us to move around and greet everyone.

The gift table was decorated in bright greens, yellows, and oranges, just like our nursery will be. On the table my mom place a bowl for cards and advice cards for the-mother-to-be.

Also on the table were fresh flowers and pictures of me and Luke as babies in between the most recent ultrasound  of baby Greene. Last of all was a glass display of post-brunch dessert of mini cupcakes: red velvet and strawberry shortcake from one of my favorite places: cake mama’s.

It was an all girls event of all ages, minus of course baby Greene. It was wonderful connect with people I haven’t seen in anywhere from two to four years and celebrate with all age groups. After many hugs and belly rubs I sat down under a chair with brightly colored balloons announcing “its a boy”. We then enjoyed a very yummy brunch together while catching up on life.

As we finished brunch we took the opportunity to take a few family pictures of me with my mom and grandmothers.

Then it was present time. As I opened gift bag after gift bag I tossed the tissue paper on the floor which made for a very entertaining game for the four girls under 10 that attended.

I received many items from our baby registry as well as several fun additional toys and outfits. I am so thankful for everyone’s thoughtfulness, creativity, and generosity in their cards, advice, and in their gifts for me and baby Greene.

Thank you everyone! It was so much fun and I enjoyed every moment.
