Shake, Rattle, & Roll


Yesterday, I was privileged to 
throw a shower for one of
my dearest friends, Kellee...

The Baby Mama

Kellee is due in November with a sweet little girl,
and since we do everything together
(travel, eat dinner every night, text/email all day, etc.)...

I thought it only made sense to have a baby shower for her, too.


And I must say... 
the shower went exceedingly well.

The weather was ideal...

the decorations turned out amazing
{thank you, Tobin!}...


and even the cake that I made
 two times because the first one bombed
was really yummy
despite being on the verge of looking kinda homely.


The best part of the day
was watching such a good friend 
get completely showered in love & gifts...


the loot
by so many people who love her dearly.
{Like me. Who loves her guts. }

Lauren  & Kellee

The other best part...
was when the hostesses jumped in the pool after the shower.

Tobin & Jill... mid flight

  1. Wish you had planned my wedding shower, it looks so elegant. Mine was held on my cousin's deck and it was quite obvious that she had done no planning whatsoever. No decorations, the food was all from a warehouse store and there wasn't enough ice for drinks. (Wow, I sound like an ingrate!)

  4. Love these pics and it is obvious that you put time and thought into her shower-it's beautiful. :) Anyone who decorates with pale, pink peonies (my fav) gets an 'A' in my books. ;)

    Your cake turned out really great too! I would have been in that pool too!

  10. thanks for such a wonderful and beautiful shower!! it was perfect! i loved everything about it and am so sad i missed them jumping in the pool! i can't believe you posted that picture of me with the cake - a little embarrassing but i love you anyway. i did cry a little when i read this because i only have two weeks left with you before you move...not a good situation for an overly emotional pregnant girl!
