Oh baby!! [A Shower & Maternity Pictures]

Monday, February 15, 2016

One of my best friends from college is expecting her first baby, a little girl. 
(We were teammates and our husbands were teammates/roommates in college so we're all good friends, and let's just say there are enough memories and stories to go around..!!)
I've tried to play it cool, but having experienced and knowing the joy of your own child, my excitement may be borderline obnoxious. All out of love and good intentions, though, I promise..!! Although, I don't forget and hope I've been able to relate to that uncertainty, excitement, anxiousness, happiness, and nervousness - every range of emotion - that comes with awaiting the arrival of your first bundle of joy.

The other weekend, I hosted a little shower for her at one of her favorite restaurants. It worked out just right, brought all four of her sisters to town (from CA/TX/local), and she was definitely showered with love. It was fun to watch her with the most adorable little bump, as she held up tiny little outfits, and soaked it all in.

We also recently had the opportunity to spend a day together prepping for her little one's arrival, chatting, and making frozen meals. Real quick, we snapped a few maternity pictures, and I love how they turned out!!
That little girl, she's got NO choice but to be gorgeous.
 Congrats, friend!! Can't wait to meet that sweet little girl. xoxo
