Cirque du Bebe *our baby shower* May 15, 2010


I am so RADTASTICALLY happy of how amazing our baby shower was. Every single of our 45 guests showed up, the weather was beautiful but sunny. I couldn't have asked for a better day. I have been crying with gratitude from my friends and family's kindness. The party went so well that people stayed and hung out inside our house well past the end of the shower. We have a ton of PF Changs leftover but only 3 Sprinkles cupcakes left. All the guests took pics with the instant camera and I need to put them in the scrapbook. We still haven't opened all the gifts but I am super excited about 2 in particular because I LOVE Bjork and our daughter's Godmother gave us a Bjork doll from Etsy!!! I was screaming when I opened it!! My other friend made special *Bjork wrapping paper* for our gifts. I LOVE my friends and family so much. Everyone wrote wishes for Olivia and I was full-on crying when we read them tonight. Some were sooo sweet and some were seriously funny. Jeff, our caricaturist was a HUGE hit, he made everyone look hilarious, I LOVE ours. I am so majorly happy how nice everything was. Everyone loved our nursery and kept telling us how lucky our daughter will be. I can't stop grinning from ear to ear. Thank you so much to Hostess With the Mostess for the shower theme inspriation. You can read more about it on my blog, VIOLENTLY HAPPY.
