My beautiful baby shower.
The most perfect shower ever. I wish that day could have lasted forever.
This past Sunday, my mom and sisters, and John's mom and sisters, threw us a baby shower, just six weeks before the baby arrives. They kept everything a secret from me so I had no idea what to expect, but it was everything I could have ever dreamed. I've always envisioned having a neutral, chic, bohemian-themed shower with little decorations and photos that mean a lot to John and I, and they made it more amazing than anything I imagined.
The outfit I wore to the shower was one of my favorite looks of all time. I don't know why but, I had always wanted to wear a flower crown paired with a dress that showed off my bump in a flattering way. Of course, the easy decision was made when I logged onto ASOS Maternity. The dress I picked is from their maternity line, but is also sold in their regular women's line too (for all you non-pregnant ladies!). The color of it was a pale, pale blue - it almost looked white. I kind of liked that it had a little hint of blue in it because I secretly 99% think it's a boy!
One of my favorite surprises from the day was a bookshelf that my mom brought, which was filled with books from every guest who brought a book and signed a little message inside for the baby. Another one of my favorite things was a gorgeous cake made by John's little sister, Adryanna - a naked cake with fresh flowers and a strawberry cream frosting. It tasted as good as it looked! I appreciate beautiful, homemade desserts like no one else - and this one blew my mind. My family even brought the bassinet that we're going to use for our baby, the same bassinet that my siblings and I used growing up. It actually hasn't aged at all and the all-white vintage basket style is timeless, even today. I cannot wait to put our little honey in it!
Here are some of my favorite pictures from the day...

Probably one of my favorite photos of my mom and I ever taken.
I've never loved a picture more than this one of my sisters and my mom. The baby and I feel so blessed to have their love and support. Grandma and aunties unite!
I also got a personalized Snapchat filter...I don't know who designed it (I'm guessing John) but like how chic!? Am I right?
Thanks for tuning in to pictures of our shower and for everyone who came and showered our little one with gifts! We love every single one of you.
