Nashville Baby Shower Love!!!

This past Sunday we got some more Baby Shower love. It was quite eventful. Some of my friends from Nashville, Maranda and Jamina, worked real hard with some of my bestfriends from Georgia, Jody and Amanda, on making it so special. Becky, Melanie, and Misty helped out too by bringing some delectable eats. My bestfriends from Georgia came up with their moms and their babes, and we did some community living for a couple of days. I loved it! At one point, there were 15 people here I think...4 of which were under the age of 2. We cooked, played with the kiddos, talked, and ate some "gourmet" cupcakes.

Then, on Sunday part of my Georgia world and my Nashville world met!! It was so wonderful to have all these ladies in one place. It felt so great to have my mom there, my closest friends, my massage clients, my doula clients and their babes, and so much love and support for the Baby Jenkins.

The home was set up so warm and cozy with different places for people to sit and hang out. Everything was decorated up. Now, if you know me then you know I love food. And I'll tell you it was the best baby shower food EVER!!! I'll try and remember it all. There were quiches galore, salmon and shrimp cakes, yummy salad, banana bread, fruit, spinach dip and veggies, apple/raspberry yum yum, and homemade cookies. All of which were lovingly created by my beautiful friends. We played a couple of games and just chatted it up. I'm not so big on being the center of attention. I'd rather hang out and talk. So, Ryan and I took the presents home and opened them there. It gave me more time to talk with all my friends that took time to come and hang out with me and the baby on their Sunday afternoon.

It flew by like most events do, and it seem to be a bit of a time warp. But I had such a wonderful time and am so grateful for everyone who contributed and came to hang out.

Here are some pictures from the shower.

Awe, it looks like a blast! I won't be having a shower because all my friends and family are 1800 miles away on the west coast.

Actually a bloggy friend just offered to throw me a virtual baby shower so I may be having one online...
