Have you ever seen a more radiant or glowing mama-to-be as my friend Katy?
What about one that could pull off such killer heels at 31 weeks?
Seriously, Katy – you rock.
Katy and her BabyBug were the guests of honor at yesterday’s baby shower, which our incredibly creative friend Jackie hosted for her. It was a beautiful shower filled with great friends I haven’t seen in far too long, delicious food that made my belly happy, and lots of laughs that no party is complete without.
Jackie really did do a wonderful job piecing the shower together. I loved the details of teal and orange that popped up everywhere.
You know you’re at a blogger’s baby shower when…
(p.s. awesome idea and so sweet that Jackie is coordinating the guest posts for Katy, now that’s a great friend.)
The food! Oh, the food!
I went back for seconds, plus a sugar cookie. I need to get the recipe for the black-eyed pea salad, the chunks of fresh avocado in it won me over.
The host and the guest of honor (I told you there were lots of laughs )
We had one game, and it was tough one. Jackie mixed Katy and Lucas’ (Katy’s husband) baby photos in with a bunch of celebrity baby photos and we had to guess which celebrity belonged to which photo.
It was a lot tougher than I thought it would be, apparently I need to read up on my celebrity gossip. I got 5 right, which is a far cry from the winner at 14.
And, of course, it wouldn’t be a shower unless we showered the mama-to-be with gifts!
Katy had so much fun opening presents. Her facial expressions were priceless.
There’s no hiding how excited she is to be a mom.
We missed a big group shot, but we managed to get one of all stragglers who were too busy talking to want to leave.
I miss my Orlando girls!
It’s hard to believe the next time I see Katy she’ll have a baby instead of a belly. I’m so excited for her and this new adventure and I can’t wait to meet the little Baby Bug.
After the shower, I headed to Downtown Disney and met my parents for dinner.
They recently redid the Lego store, and I was impressed with the new lego statues out front.
Downtown Disney was PACKED! I forgot how bad the summer crowds are on the weekends. After fearing a long wait at every other restaurant we walked by, we really lucked out by being seated right away at the bar at Wolfgang Puck.
I tried a new-to-me Florida beer.
It was super hoppy, but not bad.
My parents and I shared the sushi platter, which came with miso soup
I only had a couple of pieces, I was saving room for the pizza and salad my dad and I had ordered.
That’s my portion of the veggie pizza and endive salad. It filled me up.
I came home and immediately crashed. It was a good day, but a long one. Now my plan is to take it easy today. I’ve already slept in and started watching the men’s marathon. Can you believe the Olympics are over? *tear*
