A Little Pumpkin is On the Way.

This past Saturday, friends and family gathered to celebrate my sister’s ‘little pumpkin’ that is on the way!

My mom and I spent Friday night together as she prepared the food and I finished some last minute decorations.

We enjoyed some delicious food, a few Β rounds of baby Scattergories and ‘little pumpkin’ cupcakes paired with afternoon coffee.

Baby Shower Three
While I’m not always the most confident in my hosting abilities, I’d say my first time hosting a baby shower was a success.

Only five more weeks until we get to meet the ‘little pumpkin’! :)

    Your sister looks so teeny tiny to be so far along! What an adorable baby bump. Love the pumpkin theme shower, Di! I’ve never seen that done before.

    How fun! I’ve never hosted a shower of any kind, so I think I’d be a little nervous too! Does she know if it’s a girl or a boy?

      She’s having a boy :) I’m sure you’d be fine by the way! The majority of guests were family and close friends so it wasn’t as nerve wracking as I expected!!

        Aw, yay! That’ll be a nice Christmas present!

        I’m sure I would be too, it’s probably just the thought that’s overwhelming. It’ll be fun to help plan my sisters’ bridal showers someday :).

    Your sis is a pretty dang cute pregnant lady! I can’t believe she’s only 5 weeks away! It seems like we just found out. haha. It looks like a wonderful baby shower.

      She really is! I can only hope that I look half that good when I’m pregnant. :) And I can’t believe it either. I announced it a couple of months after they found out (they weren’t going public with the news yet!)

Of The Moment.

Better than the gym. πŸŒ³πŸƒ #highbanks Adorable (and delicious) cupcakes from my surprise baby shower yesterday! #kellyscakery #babyboden1 #latergram Lovely stroll through the #farmersmarket this morning. β˜€οΈ #itfeelslikefall Hello third trimester. It feels like I've been pregnant forever. Becoming more & more anxious to meet our little one! Only twelve weeks to go! πŸ‘ #babyboden1 #babybump #thirdtrimester I was writing a letter to our little one this week & as I went to sign my name realized I could write 'mom' instead. I get to be a mom...to a daughter! How surreal. I pray for that special mother-daughter bond like I have with my own. Already dreaming of all the adventures we will have together! πŸ’• #babyboden1 #babybump Happy Birthday to me. 🎈🍦#celebrate #jenisicecream My view for tonight. ⛺️#staycation #thegreatoutdoors #mdboden Goodbye Florida. We enjoyed our 24 hour babymoon. ✈️ #mdboden #babyboden1 Dinner with Aunt Diane tonight! I think more of his dinner ended up on his face (and tray) than in his mouth! πŸ™ˆ #nephew #sweetboy Twenty-five weeks! My belly has been pretty sore but I love the feeling of her moving about in there! πŸ’œ #babyboden1 #babybump We had a great last day together. πŸ’™πŸ’› #nanny #mrethan #misscameron There's the bump I've been waiting for...#babyboden1 #babybump
