Friday all day we (me and Alex - the girl helping me plan the baby shower) went out and went shopping for groceries, decorations, etc. for the party. It was a successful day - the only part that made me a bit crabby was the fact that she had to cut our time short, so while we were supposed to be putting together our gift for mama-to-be, Pam, she was getting ready and leaving me at her house to do it all alone. This is what
It's a onesie bouquet that I found on Pinterest - basically made of onesies, washcloths, socks, hats, and a few silk flowers for texture. I honestly LOVE the way it turned out and I'm glad to say I made it!
Saturday was a pretty low key morning - I had all my stuff done for the shower, so this was my day to relax and not worry about a thing until Sunday. Little did I expect several calls, texts, and emails on the topic of shower. I'll spare you the details because I honestly don't care to ever read back on some of the stuff I was dealing with the day before.
That evening was planned to be a night out to support a friend of mine, Rich. He used to be in a band... and long story short, the lead singer of this band has a baby girl who has racked up some pretty hefty medical bills; Charloette has lymphangioma. Here are a couple of websites if you ever care to give a few dollars to help the family out with some of the expense

So Steve and I went to this bands reunion show - where... I got to spend a little bit of time with a few blogging ladies that you probably read: Kristi and Dana (sorry girls, it got a bit blurry):
meet back in 2009 for a sushi date for Kristi's birthday!
Here is Rich, on the drums:
Anyhow- so Saturday was fun. I found myself back in time singing along to all the songs I remembered!
Then comes SUNDAY - The baby shower day is here!
Let's just say that Pam was so happy and after a few minor hiccups, the day went off without a hitch. Again, I don't care to have these 'hiccups' in written word to ever read back on. Pam was happy and felt loved all day - that's what important!
My beautiful cousin, Shannon, was there and I asked if she'd be the photographer for the day, since I was likely going to be busy the whole time - and Thank God for Shannon (thank you Shannon!!!!)! We ended up with just under 200 pictures, which is perfect! Some of you may have seen them on facebook, if not, here are a few highlights:
