This weekend, two of my friends & I hosted a baby brunch for my good friend Hillary. She is having a little girl named Sadie Rose this August! We met last year when Jason & I moved to Magnolia & we hit it off right off the bat. We kept each other company through football season...(yes we formed a football wife support group). She also has a little boy named Reynolds & two step children, Payton & Savannah who are all anxiously awaiting the arrival of their new sister! Since this was a "girls only" day, Savannah is the only one who got to make an appearance on the blog! lol
We had a wonderful time eating, telling funny stories, & laughing together!
Since I had been out of town for work this past week, I had a lot of cooking, cleaning, & decorating to do Friday afternoon when I got home. Luckily, the two Amy's volunteered to help host so they took care of most all of the yummies! I was so thankful to have them help pitch in with everything!
Beginning to get everything together...
All about the strawberries!
As you can see, all of the hard work wore Maci out! She was taking a break...or...err...supervising as she called it.
All of the Yummies! Magnolia Bakery cake, apple relish, strawberry cake mix cookies, spinach & bacon dip, buttermilk biscuits & homemade Jam, mini cinis, sandwich squares, & Strawberry kabobs.
Drink Table: Spa Water & Strawberry Lemonade
Yummy Bakery Cake! It was amazing!
Me, Hillary, & Amy B.
Hillary & her mother
Amy B's sweet little twins, Addison & Ava
Hillary & grandma June
Becky (Hillary's MIL), Grandma J, & the mother to be!
It's gift time! And we had two sweet gift helpers.
The bow holder that sister Savannah made for little Sadie.
This gorgeous quilt was made by Hillary's grandmother. How sweet!
& of course the Necessities! Diapers are a must!
Overall, Hillary had a wonderful shower & we had an amazing time. I am so blessed to have found such a wonderful friend here. I wish only the best for her & her family and cannot wait to hold sweet little Sadie Rose!
Since today is father's day, I have to give a shout out to my wonderful dad & Father in law (who neither one will ever know about this b/c they never get on the internet...lol)
Here we are back in 2008 when I was on UAM's Homecoming court. He was my escort & there's no one else I would rather have by my side.
And of course, my other father...
I love both of these men so much & am so blessed to have them as a part of our lives.
