Showers: Babies & Brides & Cake, oh my!

I had a wonderful long weekend in NH this past weekend. Not only did I get to see some of my relatives that I haven’t seen in over 6 months, but I also got to share a special Bridal/Baby shower with my future sister-in-law, Kristina. She had been planning my shower with my mom for a few months and then my mom and I secretly planned to do half of my shower as a bridal shower and surprise her. Although she had an idea what was going on, it was still a great day.

Kristina, Carrie and I went into Concord to get mani/pedis so we would be beautiful for the shower. Then, in order to kill some time, we walked around the mall and enjoyed some Dunkin’ Donuts steamy beverages. When we arrived at The Common Man, the room for the shower was all decked out with blue and white balloons, hydrangeas on the tables,¬†presents galore and of course, a creamy butter cream cake from Jacques.

I wish the weather had been nicer–it being springtime I assumed the temps would be somewhere around 50¬†degrees, boy was I wrong! With the frigid winds, despite the sun shining every day, the air outside was in the high 30’s–eek!

My beautiful black lab, Sophie, is getting older, but she still remembered me. And I think I have a new friend in Daisy, the beast of a horse–I mean dog.

It is always great to open presents and baby stuff is THE cutest, but the most exciting part about being in NH this weekend was knowing that the next time I see these people, I will be a mommy with a new baby boy. I feel like everything is starting to come together and I can not wait for him to get here!

More pictures from the shower to come at the end of this week when my husband returns from his business trip and brings my computer back!
