The cake was handmade by my friend and was the most delicious chocolate raspberry cake ever! There were yummy lemon frosting cupcakes for dessert as well, along with a chocolate fountain, the most AMAZING cookies (Carol, I’m looking at you!), and mini strawberry shortcakes!
Take home favors included my favorite sugary snack (gummy bears!) and an Essie nailpolish in two different shades of blue! So cute!
Burlap, hydrangeas, and lace lined the tables.
Four close friends, three of us being pregnant at the same time! So fun!
Necklace: Groopdealz (so cheap!)
Shoes: Victorias Secret (old)
Bracelets: Stella and Dot (Julep Bangle, Renegade Cluster Bracelet)
It has been so fun celebrating the Little Man!! A huge thank you to my friends for a BEAUTIFUL shower! I am feeling so blessed to be surrounded by such wonderful people in my life
Wooooo, chalkboard is back! Room is almost completely put together! PROGRESS!!!

Total weight gain: 12 pounds
Maternity clothes? Just the maxi dress and tank tops, and this dress from H&M I’m wearing
Stretch marks? Nope!
Sleep: Crappy. But again, it’s good baby prep.
Best moment this week: Being told I can come off modified bed rest and be on “light activity!” Which truthfully, is probably what I was doing anyway. I still can’t go back to work because my job is labor intensive, but basically I don’t need to lay on a couch all day. Woo hoo! Also…..THE NURSERY IS PAINTED!!!!!! AND, I completed my registries so we now have everything we need for this little man and I’m feeling MUCH more prepared. Yay!
Miss Anything? Bending over.
Movement: Lots and lots of movement!
Food cravings: Watermelon!!!!!! Finally a real craving. And a healthy one at that! Speaking of which, I need to buy more.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!
Labor Signs: No. This needs to stay that way until 37 weeks. Then, I’m fine with him coming.
Symptoms: Charlie horses have improved! I’ve tried to increase my calcium intake and it seems to have helped.
Belly Button in or out? Out for the most part.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Much happier this week.
Looking forward to: Finishing up the nursery!!!! FINALLY.
