August Showers

I had the honor of throwing 4 showers in 4 weeks. Lots of fun preparing, planning, prepping and fun celebrating. With that said, I had a great time planning this shower with my friend Danielle where we spent lots of nights making crafts together and coming up with to do lists. This shower was for my special and dear friend Monique who is pregnant with her second and this time she is having a baby boy. We are thrilled and can’t wait to meet him. The party was a bright lemon and sunflower theme with touches of yellow and blue everywhere around the backyard. With lemonade stand and lots of big sunflowers on each table. What a perfect and wonderful day and I am so blessed to be a part of this special time in Monique’s life as she welcomes her little boy into the world. Mo and Jim congratulations and you both will make the most wonderful parents your little guy and you already are to your sweet little Therese Carol.

The next weekend I helped throw a baby shower all pretty in pink for my sweet new Niece Andy. Everything was so lovely as family gathered together to eat yummy food, play games, watch Lila open tiny baby outfits, and we of course passed little Andy around for everyone to get a snuggle while we celebrated her new life. We had such a wonderful and fun time with everyone and we can’t wait to watch our niece grow up into the little girl God has created her to be. We love you Andy, Chris and Lila!! Congratulations on your most beautiful daughter.

Then the following weekend, which was the last weekend in August, I helped throw an extremely fun bachelorette party for my sweet friend Aubree. We all loaded up in my car and headed to Palm Springs for the weekend, and we made sure that the car was fully decorated with signs on the widows that said “honk for the bride.” As we drove down the I-10 freeway, we all danced together to the loud, up-beat songs blaring through the speakers. We all knew we were off on a good weekend celebrating the bachelorette.
We arrived in Palm Springs around 10pm. As we all piled out of the Highlander we instantly started sweating in the 100 degrees weather. Nice!! We arrived at the hotel and we relaxed, laughed, danced and watched a movie together. Saturday we spent a full day at the pool laying out, and that night we had dinner at the JW Marriott. It was such a joyous and wonderful time making memories with my dear friend Aubree before her big day when she gets to marry her sweet Kai. This Saturday is going to be a magical day for Aubree and I can’t wait to enjoy the day with her. Bring on the wedding bells!!!
