There's no other way to describe how I feel after my wonderful weekend of baby showers in Indianapolis other than, "I am The Luckiest". I was truly overwhelmed with the number of people who attended my showers and how nice everything was for Lima Bean. So without further ado, here are pictures - lots and lots of them:
Friday night, July 29th - ex-BKD Girls' Club Shower
The sacred cupcakes - reserved especially for our showers.
Sweet little treat bags
These ladies really outdid themselves. They went together and bought us our high chair, pack and play, and lots of books! I had such a nice time catching up with them; what a great little shower!! A big thanks to Christi and Jay for having us stay with them that night as well, since our belongings were packed into a semi that afternoon:
Saturday, July 30th - Lunch at the Propylaeum
Mom threw a wonderful shower for Lima Bean at a tea room downtown, and everything was fantastic, down to the smallest detail.
We had the whole Carriage House to ourselves. It was a perfect venue for our crowd!
College friends making Play-Doh babies. Alli was the winner, but sadly I did not get a picture of her swaddled purple baby with the fresh flower on her hat. Other games were "Come Up with a Girl Name for Lindsey" and Baby Bottle lottery tickets. As luck would have it, the lottery ticket at my seat had the baby bottle.
Emma, Cake Baker Extraordinaire and the very delicious white shower cake.
Loved the polka dot ribbon
With MBA friends Jana and Betsy
With Rachel and her twins, who are almost half baked now!! Unbelievable.
DFAS friends - Alli, Lori, Christa, and Megan
Ashley and our matching belly button sweat marks. It was hot in there for two very pregnant ladies.
College friends - Becca, Ashley, Laura, Mel, Emma, Emily, and 4 future MC babies waiting to be born
With Ashley, new mommy to Jack - not pictured, but you can almost see his carseat. Such a good baby!
The woman who made it all happen (the shower, not the baby)- my favorite Mommy, Big Lou
MaMa and Grandma Pillers
With my gorgeous cousins Baleigh and Megan
All our loot in Mom and Dad's living room. We are seriously so lucky.
The men-folk, celebrating the baby in their own way on Sunday - with a Rib Fest in the garage.
Thank you so much to everyone who showered our baby with so much love and so many gifts! It was beyond wonderful to see everyone and I hated to leave.
