Mustache Baby Shower

My Auntie Bubbie and Momma.

Me and Amy.

My Grandma Janice

I have amazing friends.
Really, I do.
Every day I count my blessings.

Because Sawyer is baby #2, and because I’m having another boy, I had no expectations of having a baby shower this go around.
But when some of my best gal friends from Church offered to throw a brunch in my honor, I certainly wasn’t going to turn them down.
I should have known they would go completely overboard.

Once I got over the initial shock of how my “little brunch” had somehow become the party of the century,
I  spent the afternoon in awe of these girls, their kindness and their mad skills.
Seriously, these girls are talented. And sweet. And thoughtful.
And just my favorite people to be around.

There’s something about becoming a parent,
and having those shared parental experiences
that takes your friendship to a whole new level.
Having friends who share your worries, and milestones,
and hopes, and dreams, and breaking points…
Having friends who understand the love you have for your kiddos,
and for your family, and for crafts, and chinese foot massages,
and frozen yogurt, and  pedicures,
and a new pair of TOMs…
that’s friendship.

And this baby shower,
well, it was my reminder of the friendships I’ve been blessed to have in my life.
But sadly, because I was too busy gawking,
I didn’t get a chance to take a bunch of photos of these amazing ladies.
Next time. Next time.

    I must say I’m totally jealous of the new TOMS :) Which ones did you end up getting? I just got my first pair a few months ago and I’m pretty sure I wear them every day now. I need to invest in a few more so I’m not wearing the same grey ones all the time. lol
    xoxo

  26. Adorable! My thoughts on subsequent baby showers are Hey Baby #2 is no less special than #1 and the perfect reason for a party!

  27. That is really a great shower. The little boy will be really excited.

  28. This just too adorable! Congratulations on your family and friends. What a blessing indeed!

  29. Hi!
    I know I am a couple of months late- BUT I love this baby shower!!! Im trying to copy your idea for the mustache lollipops and the bowties. I was just wondering did you get bowtie clips for all of those bowties? Or how did you get them on the pops? My mom and I already made all the bowties, but now I don’t know if we should get the bowtie clips- it seems a little expensive for something people may never wear or might even possibly throw out- what did you do?
    Just because I want it to look as awesome as yours.
    Thanks,

    ~Diana Weiner

  30. Great idea of favors, I set my mustache daily. but your sweet mustache is awesome and your story of friendship true.
