Hello Everyone!

The past few weeks have gone by pretty fast. 

Performances at school, countless lessons and Saturday's spent at orchestra related events have made time go really fast!

This is why I was so excited that today I finally got to spend some time celebrating my little babies at my TCA shower. My husband is a football coach at a high school and the other coaches wives decided to throw me a shower. 

It was such a lovely afternoon spent eating ice cream, playing games and opening some great gifts for the twins. 

I loved the beautiful banner my hostesses made

The ice cream bar was complete with delicious toppings for all to enjoy

This gift was actually for the Mr. it was a basket full of goodies including this apron titled "Daddy's Diaper Dooties" :)

One of the coaches wife made a quilt for both Ford and Sloane

The whole crew.

Feeling very blessed these days.
So much love coming our way,
thanks to these wonderful ladies for a lovely shower.

Hello everyone!

Yesterday was my first baby shower and I couldn't wait any longer to share it with you all.

My family helped host this shower and although the decor and details turned out beautiful, I was most impressed with how many people came to show my little babies so much love and support.
Not only did my aunts from McAllen come up, but so many other loved ones from my high school viola teacher to several of my student's parents to old babysitting bosses were also there to shower my little babies.

I am literally speechless about the whole event so I will just recap with pictures to describe the wonderful time I had. 

My sister had been to a party at this venue before, so after we settled on it, we decided to make the baby shower rustic/burlap themed.

From there we went crazy with all things blue/pink/burlap

We decorated mason jars with burlap ribbon and put candy in them as favors. Since we knew we would be able to find both pink and blue hydrangeas we went with those colors for the flowers. 

My sister saw this project on pinterest and made it for me.

My other sister Aby made me the beautiful "Ford and Sloane" signs. By the way, that's the babies names! My sister also made the darling diaper cake, how cute is it??!

We went with two different cakes and cupcakes as the desert, and they were so delicious!

This is all of my sisters and mom, and my aunts and grandma from my dads side.

We thought of doing a fun photo booth type backdrop with props, we all had a blast taking photos.

I babysat for the two ladies next to me 14 years ago and taught the one on the very right's 2 kids.

My precious family

My sis who is expecting in a month and my cousin who is expecting in 4 months!

No baby shower is complete without some games, so people had to guess how many sheets of TP measured around my belly, obvi my aunt thought I was way bigger than I actually am...

These premie onsies were a trip, they were soooo tiny and cute!

I loved all my gifts, these two babies are going to have so much stuff by the time they arrive!

It was an amazing time, I feel so lucky to have such loving family and friends.

I still have a few more showers left over, which I am excited about and can't wait to recap with you all.

Thanks for stopping by, and taking a glimpse into my pregnancy, its been a beautiful ride so far!
