Painted Nursery/Baby Shower

As I mentioned in my post the other day, we had an eventful weekend. Teirney's parents came down and helped us paint the nursery on Saturday and today I drove to Madison for a baby shower that my friends at Foley & Lardner put on for me.

I'm so happy with the color of the nursery -- I love it! And it will match the bedding perfectly (if it ever ships). Here are some "before," "during" (of my super sweet husband and Bebita's super sweet daddy who did all the high trim and rolling -- I'm so blessed), and "after" pics.

AFTER...



The baby shower today was wonderful! It was so great to see my sweet friends (some of whom I haven't seen since I left Foley). I don't have pictures of the actual shower, but someone was taking pictures, so I will post some another time if I get copies. I felt so very loved and blessed to have such wonderful friends. On the invitation, everyone was instructed to bring a funny gift. To name a few...some hilarious pregnancy/post-pregnancy books, a bib that says "spit happens," a pacifier that says "mute button," a NoseFrida, and some Monkey Butt powder. They were all very creative -- it was so fun! But I also got a ton of other adorable gifts. I took a picture of all of them below and there are some closeups of some of them posted as well. I felt so loved and humbled. Hannah hosted it at her house and she of course had an amazing spread of food...as always. And I'm pretty sure she packed up her entire refrigerator and sent the contents home with me...as always. She is such a sweetie and an amazing host.

To those of you reading this who came today, thank you SO much for your huge hearts! You are so sweet to me all the time and I love you and miss you all dearly!!!

I love the color in the nursery. Beautiful! And the darling wee little baby items are incredibly sweet. Is it really just a mere two months away?

Hugs!

Wow, what a difference between the before and after! I'm so glad you had a great shower! That is so nice of your friends! That NoseFrida looks pretty gross. Please tell me there is a filter in it.

Thanks girls! Yeah, the NoseFrida is nasty -- it's a European product though, so you know, they're all into male lactation too. LOL! But seriously, I have a link I could send you with some crazy stuff.

Wow, you will LOVE the Nosefrida... are you kidding me, gross? It's the best invention ever and yes, of course there is a filter! Looks like you got tons of great stuff...

Sorry, didn't mean to offend. I just saw the picture of the woman sucking out snot. Looked gross, but I'm sure it's great!

Yes Leah, please do send a link!!!
Do they have inventions like the one in "Meet the Fockers"?
