Alicia a few years ago via her blog, and then was so excited when my buddy in real life Becky, (who I also met via blogging and who came up with this shower idea in the first place) met her in real life and loved her. No surprise. This blogging thing... it brings friends together doesn't it? I laugh sometimes when I go through my text messages and see that half of them are from girls I have never met in real life. I swear I will meet them all someday too. Anyhow... Alicia made the most darling lamb mobile for her baby's room and was planning to do it in grays and creams. It inspired me and I really wanted to make her something special to go along with that, so I created a "hello baby" hoop just for her in those colors. (I also have a few listed in my shop, here.) I stumbled upon this little lamb at Pier1, and I clutched it to my chest. I really did. I was that excited to find it. It came home with me and I had to swat my daughter's hands away many times because she wanted it. Kids.
babies... I tucked one of these little onesies into her gift as well. (Also listed here.)
Her gift has already been shipped off to her and I thought it would be fun to slip a few inspirational nursery photos into this post since that's kind of one of the main things we talk about when we gather for baby showers. We talk about birth stories and nursery plans and how cute everything she is getting will look in the baby's room, etc. Alicia isn't finding out the sex of her baby which has always been the best surprise EVER in my opinion! You seriously can't top it. With a neutral color scheme it's easy to add some fun pops of color after the baby comes. Here are my favorite nursery looks, found via Pinterest:
Linking up to Miss Becky's shower with Carissa, Suzanne,, Mary, Amy, Amy, Amy, and Amy! We love you Alicia!!
