Baby Shower #1


This past weekend John Paul and I took a trip down to North Carolina. Predominantly the trip was for my best friend Rachel's wedding (she looked gorgeous!) in Asheville, NC but we also spent time with my family and I decided to sneak in my "home" baby shower as well so that I wouldn't have to make a separate trip back later in the summer (who wants to travel 11 hours in a car when they're 8 months pregnant? It was kind of rough at 5 months).

Since my family is in NC and we now live in NY, we knew we'd end up having two showers. The NY won't be until July, but the NC shower was planned for this past weekend.

I know it's a little bit early for a baby shower but the NC was always intended to be a much smaller affair since most of my friends have moved away from the area at this point. We decided to do lunch at a nice local restaurant with great food. It was great to see my extended family and many friends. Most everyone that came I've known for over a decade. I felt very loved and supported.

Oh and thank God for baby showers! It was good to get a start on baby supplies because the amount of things you need for baby can be overwhelming. Even with almost 4ish months to go I've been thinking about how much I need to be doing to get ready. I know these weeks are going to fly by.

Here are some other snapshots from the weekend:

Thanks everyone who came out!
