Baby Shower #2


Today was my 2nd baby shower and it was perfect. This was a quaint luncheon hosted by my sweet Aunt B. We met for lunch at a small gourmet diner in a small town along the Mississippi River. Our table was near the window, so we could look out on the river and watch the fishermen enjoying the beautiful fall day. Aunt B wanted an intimate gathering to celebrate the upcoming arrival of the twins. There were six of us in attendance (K couldn't make it) and it was perfect! I was able to chat with my Aunt, her mom M, my cousin H, my Mom, and my soon to be sister in law, T. I'm very happy that we were able to do this because my cousin, H, is due to have a baby in a few weeks and likely won't make the big baby shower on 12/6.

Cousin, H, and her dear husband, T, spent time making a beautiful diaper cake composed of diapers, onesies, bottles (hidden on the inside for support), spoons, and baby toys. Aunt B brought a beautiful flower arrangement too. In addition to great conversation we enjoyed delicious pasta, wine, and sinfully delectable desserts. To top off a wonderful lunch the weather was in the upper 50's, which is something to celebrate in WI in late November. It really was a perfect afternoon! Thanks Aunt B for making me feel so special! I love you!
