Baby Shower Fun!

My friend Chrissie had a new baby girl about a month ago... so we had to celebrate! A few of us put together a small little "pamper the new mom" baby shower for her. The party was last night and I had a blast. I managed to snap a few photos of the food before I passed off the camera so that I could cuddle with the adorable little baby girl. 

Here are a few shots I got of the party. It was so much fun!

Yummy treats!

Cara made these deliciously rich cake bites. Yum!

We had two pampering stations- one where you could put together a little bottle of sugar scrub and personalize it and another where people could do your nails. My friend painted my nails and I'd brought cute little nail stickers for the nail station so now I have the cutest finger nails that I have had in probably a year! Andrew loved the little flowers I stuck on them.

Note to self- the scent gets stronger and stronger the longer the sugar scrub is around. By last night my very sensitive pregnant nose was having an allergic reaction to my sugar scrub the entire drive home. Instead of relaxing after the fun night, I had to intensely wash every dish in my house that smelled like lavender. :)

Back to the party... We ate treats, chatted, did our nails, and opened presents for about two hours. It was a very relaxing and fun night!

Pic of the party-goers (minus our beautiful hostess who is snapping this photo-- see me holding the cute new baby? So adorable!) Don't you love how Chrissie looks like she never had a baby too? She was teaching zumba at the local Ballys for almost her whole pregnancy. She is amazing! I am hoping to have her energy with my pregnancy!

This was the best night ever and I did indeed feel EXTREMELY pampered! Also, I have no doubt you'll keep your energy up during your pregnancy. You know what motivated me to keep exercising throughout my pregnancy? Thinking of you running with Caitlin in your belly, right until the very end! :)
