Sarah's Baby Shower



She's the prettiest pregnant girl ever
Sarah with her mom and sisters.

Instead of playing games, we had everyone decorate a onesie for Sarah and hung them on a clothesline to dry.


The pink candy bar

Over the weekend, I joined Sarah's sisters and mom in hosting a baby shower for Sarah. She's due in October and is having a girl! We were all overjoyed to be together celebrating the upcoming arrival with gifts, food, candy, cupcakes, and decorated onesies. Congratulations to Sarah and Chase! I can't wait to meet the baby!

Oh I love the onesies idea and you're right, she's definitely beautiful and glowing!

I hosted four (4!) of my girlfriend's baby shower last year! Is that a lake in your backyard?

Wow, this shower looks incredible. I'm *SO* impressed. I love all of the pink! I have a little girl and my friends threw me a pretty amazing shower, too. We did the onesies on a clothesline thing as well. What a crafty idea, right?

Your friend is truly a glowing, gorgeous mommy and looks like she takes great care of herself through this pregnancy, which is so important.

I've been backreading your blog pretty much all afternoon. So glad I ran across you on ML's comments at Twenty York Street!

I may be one of the rare people who hates showers (wedding, baby, any). This one looks so cute though! Decorating the onsies! I'm obsessed with this idea. If I ever throw one (which no one will probably ever ask me because of the hatred), I'm using this idea :)

And the decor is so cute! Love baby girl stuff :)
