Weekend Recap: Baby Shower!

Welcome back from the weekend, lovely readers! What a fantastic couple of days, even though I do feel as though I've been living out of a suitcase!

We had the best time celebrating the coming of Baby Jax! Enough talk, I know you want to see some pictures, right?

Here you go....


 Our gifts for Baby Jax! What's inside? All of his bath time necessities!

If there's incredible dessert, you know I'm taking a picture of it- pink lemonade, chocolate-chocolate, & pumpkin-cream cheese cupcakes!


 Sweet Hanna and me at the shower.


 Look at all the gifts! Everything Baby J could ever want!


 The beautiful momma-to-be!


Momma and Dad opening gifts!


Can't wait to hold that little sweetie!


We couldn't have asked for a better weekend. It was such a nice break from the rat-race I've been running lately. The nursery is just perfect, too! I will be sure to take pictures during my next visit- Baby J will be here then!


When I got home yesterday evening, the fun didn't stop. Look what was waiting at my door step from Sarah at Southern Belle Fashionista!

Lilly cups and the most precious card!

Close-up on the adorable turtle design.

Thank you, Miss Sarah! You're such a doll! Love you so much!


Happy Monday, gang! If you have today off (like me) I hope you're enjoying this great start to the week!

Love love,
