Baby Shower

I was SO excited for my baby shower. Noelle, Heidi, and Kristi were putting it together. I received the invitation and it was Mommy to Bee themed. Way cute! The baby shower was going to be on April 6th. All week I was telling Rillz I was so excited and didn't know what to wear. I also told him, Baby Aurie can come ANY day after April 6th. That date was 5 weeks before my due date so nobody worried. Aurie was clearly on her own schedule because she came April 5th. When I was in triage and getting admitted to the hospital I cried to Rillz saying that my sisters worked so hard on my baby shower and now it has to be postponed. I was pretty devastated to be honest. Of course excited to have my baby but so sad about my shower the next day. So, it was cancelled. We were able to reschedule for the following Friday April 12th. Aurie was still in NICU and I was exhausted from the long week. On my way to Noelle's house for the shower I cried. Almost every song that I listened to made me cry. It was the longest I had been away from my baby since she was born and it was difficult. I arrived at Noelle's house a hot mess! Thankfully I have understanding loving sisters that came to my rescue. Noelle whipped out some make-up for me to use (as if it really helped my blotchy exhausted eyes) but it made me feel better.
The decorations were AMAZING! The food was DELICIOUS! The company was GREAT! We played one game and it was the Price Is Right, which was totally fun! I left my baby shower feeling better then when I got there but anxious to get back to my baby. I seriously loved it though and thankful that family/friends could still make it on such short notice. Oh, and the theme changed to BEE-UTIFUL mommy! Because I was no longer a mommy to BEE.
Isn't this wreath made out of diapers super awesome!

 And this diaper cake!! Come on, it's way fancy and I love the Burt's Bees products on it.
 How cute is this balloon masterpiece!
 Yummy food. I want some right NOW!
 Awesome banner with my sweet girls name on it.

 This little bee was a little creepy when I first saw it. Now I keep it on the changing table and adore it's big eyes and cuteness.
 The drink pitcher even looks like a beehive. And Kristi had made all the place cards .
 Party favors. Different flavor honey sticks with a way cute Thanks for buzzing by! card.
I have amazing sisters and wouldn't trade them for the world. Thank you so much Kristi, Heidi, and Noelle for a very special baby shower!

It was really fun to plan the shower, I'm so glad you loved it. Crazy how the whole thing turned out with Aurie's grand entrance.

The shower was SO fun! Thankfully everything was ready to go. It was just a matter of getting the word out about the date change. Thrilled you liked it.
