Whooo's Expecting?

Not me. :)

But my friend Jennifer is expecting her first baby, a little girl named Jade, in early August. Jenn and I met our first year at UCA. Her then boyfriend-now husband was rooming with one of my friends from MCHS, we both had the same majors and suffered through the same business classes, and the rest is history!

Since our days at UCA Jenn and I live 4 hours apart, which means we don't get to see each other in person very often. So I was super excited to co-host a baby shower for her in Central AR this past weekend and see her live and in person, not via Facebook or a blog!

I fell in love with the little owl themes I've been seeing and decided that a Whoooo's Expecting theme would be appropriate since Jade's nursery theme has similar colors and touches of bird decorations.

Aso, let me preface this by saying that 1) I didn't take very many pictures so for a better view of the decorations and Jenn's lovely gifts you can go to her blog and 2) the hubs and kiddos tagged along (and were not cooperative to say the least) which meant my hostesss and photo taking skills were severely limited and 3) blogger is not cooperating so this post may resemble a big hot mess. :)

Invitation. Excuse the poor quality, computer is not cooperating.

Main food table.

Push-Up Cakes. Aren't these the cutest things ever? And super easy to make!

The Maurices Girls! (and Seeley) Jenn, Sarah and I all worked at Maurcies together during our college years.

I found these name blocks on etsy. Cute right?

Mommy was gorgeous and glowing and we can't wait to meet baby Jade!!

It was such a nice shower, Steph! I'm glad you put a picture of the invite on there too, because it was adorable. I forgot to take a picture, but will save it of course. Jade's blocks are proudly displayed on the hutch in her room. :)
