Rain or Shine….The Show Must Go On!

Boy, oh boy! Saturday was a whirlwind….as was the week leading up to it!

We turned the house upside down, had our air conditioner replaced, and had a baby shower at our house all in one week! In the upcoming week, I’ll share with you some updates we made to the house this week to get it ready for company, but for now I wanted to share with you the awesome baby shower hosted by my three best friends in honor of the upcoming arrival of our new little boy!

The amount of preparation these girls did to make this party a success can never be appreciated enough! It was a party full of good friends, good food, and a good time! And some really great gifts!

In an effort to do my part, I put vases of hydrangeas in nearly every room in the house. What can I say? It’s my favorite flower!



The girls set up the party in the yard. Tables were accented by baby’s breath and candles in mason jars that were tied off with a twine bow.



The cake table was set with the burlap runner used from my wedding, a gorgeous paisley cake atop a milk glass cake plate {seriously….this couldn’t be any more fitting for me} surrounded with baby’s breath, and all of the essentials to dig in.



The appetizer table held all kinds of yummy treats including fruit kabobs, a sausage dip, and a chicken ball. If you could walk past that table and not make a plate, you have way more will power than me. The tree in the middle served as the “wishing/advice” tree….and boy did I get some advice!

Boys that you’ve gone to school with nearly your whole life give interesting and humorous advice!



The gift table was complete with rocking chairs for the husband and I to open up the goodies that we were going to be blessed with.


Unfortunately, I didn’t get a photo of the food table with all of the delish food on it, but I did get a before photo! Just imagine it with grilled chicken quarters, baked beans, potato salad, and I can’t even remember what else! Tea was served in mason jars and in a whiskey barrel full of bottled sodas or water.

Can it get any more southern of a party?



The guests began to arrive and settle in….


all before the the rain came…..


and thinking that the rain would pass quickly like it always does, the boys did their part to save the party {moved the food tables under the porch and turned the chairs at an angle}! And even hung out under the trees while the ladies moved under the porch!




The rain got harder, and we quickly realized that it wasn’t planning on letting up any time soon….not to mention that everything was soaking wet!

On to Plan B….move the party inside!

Inside or outside though, we all still had a great time and adjusted easily.








Thanks to everyone who came! Rain couldn’t mess up our good time! I love spending time with each and every one of you! You all mean so much to me, and I can’t wait for you all to meet our little guy! To be quite honest, I’m getting more and more anxious to meet him myself!

31 weeks and going!
