My sister’s baby shower was a couple weeks ago. I’ve been planning for it for months and once the date came it felt like it came out of nowhere! We had it at a great local restaurant down the street from our house—and went with the theme “Ready to Pop!” It turned out to be even better than I imagined. Megan had over 70 friends and family there to help her celebrate this little baby blessing. I made most of the decorations—and every thing else was bought at Hobby Lobby, JoAnn’s and Five Below. One of my favorite parts was the popcorn bar. The popcorn was from Pittsburgh Popcorn Company in the Strip District and it was easily the best popcorn any of us ever had.
I bought her a Red Rider wagon and filled it with over 60 children’s books, a mix of classics and my favorites, a onesie that says “Lil Pierogi,” and a “Mommy to Be Hospital Survival Kit.” Plus a gift from her niece, Chloe, aka my cat. She went out all by herself and bought baby tons of outfits with cute kitties on them!
Being surrounded by all these people reminded me how lucky I am to have the family and friends that I do. Many of the people said it was the best shower they’ve been to! Uh, wow, what a compliment J Most importantly, I think my sister really enjoyed it—I know I did!
