more shower

I know, I know… social central.  I'm feeling sentimental, so bear with me.  New photos arrived in my inbox today that I didn't have when I posted the first round of pictures.  And since you kind people want to know about my dress… another shower post. 


Some of my girlfriends.  All the party hostesses are not pictured… and my biggest regret of the evening: no picture of me and the hostesses.  I don't know what I was thinking!?


My sister hasn't been away from her children for a night since giving birth to her last.  For the record, I don't think 2 or 3 nights in the hospital after a c-section really counts as a "night off".  I was so glad she was here.  She makes me laugh really hard.  I thought I was gonna go into labor early from laughing.



Two party hostesses with the mostest… friends from college who I love to pieces.


Future Uncle & Auntie.


Sister-in-law Leah who I love dearly.  About the dress.  I got the dress at TJMaxx in Boston.  It's not maternity… just 8 sizes bigger than I usually wear, it didn't have to be altered (which is kind of a scary thought), I just had to wear tall shoes.  Tag in the dress says Donna Morgan… and their website says "Dresses for All Shapes and Sizes"… that couldn't be more true!   

PS- nice commenter let me know the dress is available online at Nordstroms – here's a LINK.

  5. Y’all are all so pretty!
    Is that Marla from Marla and Shane in the top picture? I met her when we were down in Seaside last week and one of the girls looks so familiar. She would be the only person we had in common. :)
    BTW, Shane took our daughter’s pics on Tuesday and he is so great!

    swooning – you all are the most lovely family (your friends are all so beautiful too!) and i get double the pleasure from both yall’s blogs and really, your mom and dad should model for ralph lauren! OK< the nursery, oh my word, you have the most beautiful “nest” prepared for your baby girl, it is just over the moon delicious!
    i must ask…where was the shower and what is in the little sacks? love your dress and your baby bump!

  14. Do you have a baby book yet? I wonder if you’ve discovered any great ones. I have “Baby’s First Book” from Rag and Bone Bindery in the pattern “Polka Baby” ( which I think is now being discontinued, so it is on sale. I thought of this book cover when I saw your baby’s beautiful bedding fabric, since the pink dots are not a true pink. Perhaps you do not like so much “matchy-matchy” though.
