First Shower and The Fox!

Friday after school, four of my sweet teacher friends hosted my first shower! They went above and beyond- I'm still not sure how they managed to get the whole thing organized and set up so nicely on a Friday right after school! It was such a sweet time celebrating and looking forward to when we finally get to meet the little man in July. Unfortunately, I forgot my real camera, so we took turns snapping pictures with our phones of all of the cute decorations. Baby Nelsen and I felt quite spoiled and loved.

Sweet Mary made the adorable diaper cake!
I mean, really! How cute is this?!
Sweet baby boy clothes!
The hostesses!
The hostesses and Mattie- who asked if she could photo-bomb. ;) 
Sweet Heidi and the finished bumper and bedskirt!! She is amazing.
Lindsey and I worked together for 6 years before she stayed home with her first. She is due with her second in 4 weeks! Yes, I'm due in 12... I made her stand sideways to show off her bump, yet mine still looks the same size! HA!

My partner in crime- Lynn ;) Wish this picture turned out better but how cute is the punch she made with the little rubber duckies floating on the bottom?!
Kelly made sure there was children's food at my shower- for me, not the children. Now that's a good friend. ;)
I will surely miss seeing these sweet friends next year!

When I got home from the shower, Matt said he found tickets on Craigslist to The Lion King at the The Fox Theatre. The show had been in town all month, and we had talked about wanting to see it, but never set a date and made a plan, until Friday evening. ;)

Matt bought the tickets at 6:45- by 7:00, we were in the car heading to the show. We stopped for Chick-Fil-A on the way, asked the parking guy for a quick pic, and made it to our seats by showtime. Our seats were incredible and the show was seriously amazing. I'm so glad we got to go! And thankful for a hubby who can wheel and deal with the best of them to get us sweet seats. ;)

Tomorrow's post is all about the rest of our fly-by-the-seat-of-our-pants weekend involving a trip to the park for a picnic with the pup, that turned into a trip to the Braves game- with the pup.

See you tomorrow!
