I recently helped throw a baby shower for one of my best friends, Rebecca and her soon to be here son, Ogden.

I threw a shower back in February as well for my Karis and her son, Malakai. Back 2 and a half years ago I planned and threw my BFF, Tricia's shower for her twins.

This is what I have found- I love showering! Making, planning, baking, decorating, organizing,buying, partying- I love it all! (even if the gluten-free cakes explode in my oven and almost burn my house down.)

I homemade a lot of Rebecca's shower decor. Some would say I have too much time on my hands but I love designing and creating on my free time! What a creative outlet! It was supposed to be an outdoor event since everyday that week had started with glorious sun-filled, cool mornings but on the morn of the shower I awoke to crazy downpouring rain. We had the shower at one of our pastor's houses and they keep their garage in better shape than I keep my home on a good day. We relocated to the garage and had a wonderful time. It was so soothing to hear the rain falling while we were eating and celebrating. Rebecca is the most easy going appreciative person I know so she really enjoyed the gathering and even kept some of the decorations for Ogden's room! There was food galore and sweets everywhere. Delish!

The point- I love throwing parties. Especially when they are for someone I love. I'm pretty sure I would love them even more if I had an unlimited budget and did this for a part- time living.

This was Rebecca's mommy said, "Ogden's Mom"


And here she is, Ogden's Mom
