Heidi-ho, everyone! I thought I’d share a quick post about my baby shower that took place this past Sunday! As some of you know, B and I are big Star Wars nerds, so I had my heart set on a Star Wars themed baby shower. A lot of the ideas I found online (mostly influenced by this birthday party), and I thought catering from Daphne’s, a Greek place that’s not really sit down but not really fast food, either, would fit the theme the most. I for sure want to take credit for Chewbaklava, and my best friend thought of C3-Pollo. 🙂
The food puns are labeled in the pics, but overall it was so much fun! I bought some Star Wars stuff here and there and my best friend (who graciously offered us her house for the party) went so above and beyond with decorating it! I couldn’t have done it better, and I am so grateful on what an amazing hostess she was. Even more amazing, is that my brother and sister-in-law bought the BEST cake I could have ever asked for. They said that they wanted to take care of it, and while I expected something cute because my sister-in-law has a knack for finding cute stuff, I was blown away by what she selected!
Overall, it was so much fun, though it felt like a mini-wedding since there were over 50 guests and a ton of kids, so it felt like while I got a chance to talk to people, I somewhat felt rushed talking to everyone. I think for the most part everyone understood, and I was completely blown away by all the love and generosity given to B and I that day.
Here’s some pics from the event! Can you guess which one I am in the family pic?? lol
Now that the party is over, it’s definitely nesting period time on ‘roids! Thank you so much for everyone on their advice about term versus variable life insurance – it definitely influenced us to choose term for all the reasons everyone stated, so I am so grateful for this community! And, shamelessly, I have another question this time around – do you have a favorite “freezable” meal that you’d like to recommend? I’m going to attempt to make as many frozen meals as possible this month so hopefully we’ll have a good reserve for when Flash arrives, so I’d love to hear them!
I definitely need to catch up on everyone’s blogs, but I hope everyone’s been doing well! I hope you have a wonderful week. xo
