Sarah and Emerald's Baby Shower

This past Saturday I hosted my very first baby shower at my home! One of my best friends, Sarah, is having her first baby this March. We can't wait to meet Emerald Rose and had so much fun celebrating the two of them this weekend. You would have thought we were feeding an army by the amount of food we had! I'm so grateful to everyone who brought food and helped set up!

I don't know how I have gotten so lucky with the girls in my life this year! It's a community brought together solely by God- we are all SO different! Sarah, Lauren, Staci, Kristi, Maggie, Brogan- yall are the best friends! We threw a pretty awesome shower, and I have a feeling we will be throwing many more together over the years ;) Shout out to Kristi for taking care of all the decorations! I am sooo not a crafty person, I needed someone else to take that over completely! Here is a little peek at our afternoon :)

Things ran a little last minute with the preparations so I only snagged a few pictures of the food! I made two kinds of mini sandwiches: turkey, apple and brie and then chicken salad on hawaiian rolls.

Lauren brought a delicious cheese ball! I mean really, can you ever go wrong with a ball of cheese?!

Maggie brought these two dishes! I am OBSESSED with the one on the left. It's sausage, jalapenos and onions on a toothpick and baked in the oven! The other dish was ham, cream cheese, pepper and mint all rolled up!

My friend Kelyn is an awesome baker, so she made these gem shaped cookies!

Left to right: Me, Lauren, Maggie, Sarah (+Emerald), Kristi, Staci, Candyce.

Sarah I love you so much! You have been such a good thing in my life. You are going to be the best mother, and maybe I will even be a good babysitter! You never know ;)
