So Blessed - Shower Recap!!!

I still do not have all of the pictures from my shower but, I have enough to do a recap and show y'all how wonderful everything was!!

Looking at these pictures, I am just overwhelmed with how blessed Alex and I are.  We have amazing friends and family that love Kate so much already. 

The shower was beautiful and we received so many wonderful things - monogrammed and handmade blankets and burpies, our swing, pack n play, high chair, clothes, bath tubs, books, and so much more!  Everything was so beautiful and so useful!

My friend Erin is queen DIYer and made some amazing things for the shower.  Katie and Amy did a wonderful job with the menu - the food was so yummy and setting everything up!  Katie also opened to house to us for the weekend which was much appreciated!  And my Mom did a great job with the games (they were actually fun and not horribly embarrassing), invitations, and just helping out in general!

On to pictures!

The best cake ever!  The lady that made our wedding cake made this cake and it was to die for -almond cake with a fresh strawberry and butter cream filling - all iced in homemade butter cream!

The spread - chicken salad, pasta salad, Mississippi State cheese, fruit, caramel and cream cheese dip with apples,  and a yummy strawberry punch with pink sugared glasses!

Personalized water bottles - Erin even put a longhaired dachshund on one label for Kate's furry brother and sister.

The favor table - it was a buffet of a few of my favorite things - strawberry cupcake bites, lemon heads (a fav during first tri - and really always), and pink nail polish since my toe are always painted pink!

Erin (the DIYer), Barbie, me, and Mary - a few of my friends from college that were at the shower!

More pictures were taken of me and my guests but, I don't have them all and this post is already picture heavy!  I'm sure I'll add some more as I get them!

I was wonderful to see everyone and this shower just made me that much more excited for my shower here in Houston on July 17!  It's a tea party and I know it will be just as fantastic!!!
