Check that one off the List!

Hey guys!! 

Just wanted to drop in and let you know that I've accomplished something (okay, two things... but I only have photographic evidence of one of them) on my 25 before 25 list! 

I hosted a party (a baby shower, actually... and I co-hosted, but it counts)! And here's my proof. My friend Kelsey (who just had her baby) was about four weeks ahead of me, and it's been so fun to talk pregnancy/baby with her over the past 6 or so months. My friend Torrie and I planned a little baby shower, and I think it turned out really well! We got the idea for a shower-themed shower from Pinterest, and this is how it turned out, complete with a crepe and parfait bar (sorry the pictures aren't the greatest): 
So there we have it.

Oh, and in case you were wondering... I've also taught myself to like carrots. When they have been been soaking with a roast in the crock pot for eight hours  BOOM.

What fun decorations!! You guys put so much thought and effort into this. What a lucky girl Kelsey is to have two you as friends :) The crepe & parfait bar sounds delicious!
So...question - why did the guests have to take 2 clothespins?
(Oh, and congrats on the carrots! I, too, hate carrots, and can only enjoy them once they've been sitting in soup for hours or roasted/baked beyond oblivion. Basically, I like them when they no longer taste like carrots anymore :)

So cute! What a great idea for a theme! And cudos to you for planning and organizing a shower while you are pregnant yourself! I think when the time comes I may use being pregnant as an excuse to get out of planning everything.... ~Stephanie
