just not on mine!
Saturdays post which mentioned a relaxing Sunday was all just a ploy in case dear Jaclyn happened to check in on my lovely blog. Sunday ACTUALLY was her surprise baby shower!
It went off perfectly, and everything came together just as planned.
The day started off with my first trip ever to Fairway! For those not living in New York, Fairway has a rep for the best grocery store…ever. It’s right on the water in Brooklyn, and it’s huge!
It actually has it’s own parking lot - amazing!
After multiple stops throughout the morning, Meg, Mary and I all ended up in the front seat which was quite…dangerous:
Once all the goods were picked up, and J was safely on his way to brunch with Jaclyn, the Meg, Mary, Katelyn, Ashley and Jac and J’s mom’s all snuck into their place to set up. This way when they returned from brunch…BAM, baby shower!
I think we did quite a nice job:
This was later made into a ‘decorate the onesie’ game.
With a delicious spread of food:
A perfect punch, which could be spiked with prosecco if anyone was feeling a little frisky:
Once we were all set up, it was time for our guest of honor to arrive!
Jac had no idea both her mom and J’s mom were hiding in the kitchen, she was so excited!
Once everyone mingled and ate for a bit, we played some games and got right to the good stuff- gifts!
The two stand out gifts of the afternoon were:
Baby Toms! Are these not the cutest things you have ever seen?
Baby Porn for mom’s!
This book has spreads like this, with hilarious quotes. This one reads ‘Let’s not have sex today, why don’t you lay down while I rub your feet and you can tell me all about the baby’s day’. Too funny!
Once the gifts and games were done, everyone mingled for another hour or so before wrapping up. All in all a great shower.
I realized we haven’t got a new picture of the 4 of my girls in awhile, and managed to get a new one for the arsenal before the day ended:
Hope you had a great day Jac! Happy Mothers Day!!
Once we were done here, Meg and I headed back out for more party planning. Mary’s (far left) bridal/bachelorette shower is this Saturday, and there is lots to do! Luckily we were able to knock a bunch of stuff out yesterday so we are in good shape for the big party.
After an exhausting day, I arrived home to these on the counter:
Eli was sweet enough to get me some mothers day flowers! Thanks E! He is such a great pup.
We also found out our neighbors are moving last night, and as a parting gift they decided to leave us with all the alcohol let in their bar:
Party time! There is what looks like a really expensive version of Baileys mixed in there, which I am dying to get my lips on. It’s probably bad to give it a whirl in this mornings coffee, right?
I kid, I kid!
Have a good Monday!
