Showers, Showers, & More Showers

Figured my blog title is perfect considering Isaac is coming for us shortly. I’m praying it will not be as bad as we all think but if so, I pray everyone stays safe! However, today I’m blogging about all of the lovely baby and wedding showers that I’ve attended lately. Showers are so much fun…tons of gifts, food, and good friends.

The first shower I attended this month was my cousins bridal shower.  Liza received so many pretty gifts and houseware things! Makes me soo excited for mine!

My best friend is having a sweet baby boy so we had to celebrate in style! I wouldn’t have had her shower in any other way either. Haley had a wonderful shower and Liam will have clothes until he is 3! And thanks to Pinterest we even had a Mimosa Bar set up for the non prego ladies.

The last shower of the summer was for a very special friend of mine/cousin in law to be & her sweet baby boy. I hate that I don’t have more pics because she had such a cute shower too. The theme was circus and when I say it was all out….it was. Popcorn machines, cotton candy, sprinkle ice cream cones, etc.

 

Now if all these sweet babies would just hurry up and get here! Who else has baby fever right now??? (Reid please don’t kill me)

Engagement Details & Birthday Celebrations @ the Beach!

I promised I would share all about our engagement so I am! Where to even start??? The whole thing was more than I could of ever imagined.

While vacationing with my family in Destin, FL, my birthday fell on the same week. Reid knows how I am about birthdays so he decided to take me out on a special date for just the two of us the day before my birthday. Because of the bad weather, we were unable to get on the beach that day. Throughout the day, Reid mentioned walking on the beach after dinner but I hadn’t thought a thing of it(little did I know). Dinner came around and he acted fine….no shaking, sweaty palms, or anything! Scary how good he is at this acting. He seriously picked the most romantic spot for dinner at Louisiana Laginappe.

Thank goodness the weather had cleared up by then and we were able to take our walk on the beach. After finding a quite spot on the beach, we sat and talked a while but nothing out of the ordinary. I stood up to brush sand off of me and my dress and in a split sec he was on one knee holding a rock!!! Reid said that I said YES before he even asked me but I can’t tell you what happened…I was in shock!!!  As a little girl, I’ve imagined getting engaged on the beach but never told him that because I didn’t want to put pressure on the poor guy. I think he’s a keeper!

After taking it all in and calling some very special family and friends, we headed to the condo to share the news with the rest of our family. The night couldn’t have been more perfect.  Oh and of course I had to buy all the wedding magazines in Destin! Even my fiancĂ© enjoyed the reading material!

The next day was my actual birthday and where else but the beach would I rather be??? For dinner my parents took me to the one and only Ruth Chris’s Steakhouse. We even had our own room to ourselves….maybe that’s because there was 10 of us! It was def a birthday to remember.
