Week 9

Week 9 was from July 31st until August 6th. On August 1st my mom and I threw a family and friends baby shower for my brother Justin and his wife Ashley.

I had SO much fun planning this shower! It was a couples shower/BBQ with very few of the traditional baby shower games.

My favorite part was coming up with a baby related menu. We had baby back ribs, "newborn" potatoes, Bahama Mommas, Slippery Nipples, and Baby Ruth brownies, to name a few!

This pictures is one of my favorite - who knew that blue hangers could be so exciting?! Especially for a dad who just minutes before complained that baby showers were for girls!

I know I've said this before, but it was SOOO hard not to tell our family while everyone was there that we were expecting too. But, if nothing else, I was able to restrain myself with the fact that I didn't want to steal their thunder!
