mommy to be baby shower.

Ashlee's Mommy to Be Shower

Lauren Reed and I had the best time hosting a baby shower to celebrate our dear friend and old roommate from A&M, Ashlee Drake, as she prepares to be a mommy!
Abram Jackson is due in May and I can't wait to meet him!
Ashlee and Jack will be such great parents.  What joy this new life will bring!

This weekend was such a blessing to catch up with Lauren and Ashlee.  
We praise God for such sweet and special friendships and bonds that will last a lifetime!
What a fun, new season for my friend...motherhood!!

We threw a dinner party at a local Italian Restaurant, Salerno's, in Flowermound near Ashlee and Jack's house.
Lauren and I had a great time pulling it all together and decorating was so fun!
Lauren did such a great job with the banners, signage and making the invitations!  Loved it all!

 I enjoyed doing the flower arrangements! The gerber daises were huge! So pretty.  

Dessert table and the adorable banners Lauren made!

Cupcakes from Bluebonnet Bakery in Ft. Worth.  Delicious, even though they turned our mouths blue!

 "Advice, tips and encouragement" cards for the Mommy to Be.

Guest of Honor 

Sorry for the bad iphone pictures...the lighting was terrible and orange!

The green and white striped table runner is wrapping paper!

Sweet friends, great fellowship!

Blessed by these friendships! (and Ashlee hardly even looks cute!)

Mason jar drinks and stripped straws, of course!

 Swaddle blankets! 

 So cute...bathtub filled with "bubbles" and all the baby will need for bath time!

 Thanks to all Ashlee's friends who came to celebrate and bless the Mommy to Be!!
