Super Sweet Shower #3!

I've got the best co-workers in all the land. Seriously, not only are they great to work with, but they are super sweet. And who doesn't love sweet people?

They threw me a "Baby Luncheon" yesterday at work, and I was just so grateful for their thoughtfulness. It was just precious. Lindsey did SO much for the shower, and she did a fabulous job.

Here are some pictures of Levi's Baby Luncheon. (From my iPhone)

First of all, Lindsey made these super cute things to hang from the ceiling. They were just adorable. I swear she is Martha Stewart.



She also made these incredible cupcakes (I finally got to eat her Nanny's famous buttercream frosting - and yes, it is ridiculously good.)



And brought these plates that I had a FIT over. My goodness, they are precious. It's nursery rhyme toile!! Could it BE any cuter? Be still my heart. Oh, and there were napkins to match.



Another lady in my office brought these beautiful peonies!



They smelled just as heavenly as they looked.

And of course, let's not forget the food!

One girl brought the BEST homemade chips and dip I have ever eaten in my life. Good golly miss molly, they were delcious.



And my boss brought my favorite chicken salad in the entire world. Remember when I blogged about it a few weeks ago?



Another one brought this fabulous fruit salad in a beautiful bunny bowl!



There were a few other edibles that I didn't get a picture of - like two different salads...they sure were good, though.

After gorging on lunch, it was present time. I got several wonderful gifts, but I've GOT to show you the cards Lindsey had made for me!



This picture does not do them justice because you can't see them very well, but they have Peter Rabbit on them with Levi's name at the top. How presh! There are also matching envelopes with my address written beautifully on the back, but I can't show you them or you might come murder me.

She also made me these SUPER CUTE "Mom Cards", but I can't figure out how to show you without you knowing my last name and phone number. Again, you might come murder me. But take my word, they are adorable.

Okay, okay, so after I opened all of my sweet gifts, I opened "The Office Gift" from everyone. Well, they all chipped in and got me....



HAHA! I was so excited because this was the last thing I needed!! I registered for it, but doubted anyone would get it for me because a.) it's expensive and b.) it's a BREAST PUMP.

We work with only one guy, and while he was slightly humiliated, I was super excited. It's funny though because I had opened some nursing pads a few moments before but didn't take them out of the sack "for Pat's sake". Little did I know, I was going to get the whole pump and he helped pay for it! HA!

Anyway, I was so grateful for such a nice gift. I definitely wasn't expecting it and planned on buying it myself. Now I am all set to have this little boy!! Horray!

  2. Whitney, FYI - those nursery rhyme plates are at Hobby Lobby and have matching napkins. We used the napkins to decoupage eggs and I'm sad I didn't get a better picture of mine, but it was ADORABLE. The cutest thing ever. And the napkins worked PERFECTLY! You can kind of see it in the last picture on my Egg Night post.

  8. Yay, for baby luncheons! I had so much fun doing everything. I'm so glad you had a good time. Did you watch the DVD last night that came with the pump!?! haha!

  10. Yay for the breast pump! A little word of advice (I know, I know, advice is annoying, but my friend gave me this advice and I didn't follow it and then regretted it), go ahead and boil the plastic parts as the instructions say BEFORE Levi comes. I didn't do it because I figured I wouldn't need the pump for a while ... and I had to end up pumping from the first day I got home. Trust me, better to do the boiling and preparing before your "pectoral region" is hugely engorged and you have a newborn!! Better safe than sorry and I so wish I had done that!

    Super-cute plates, by the way!!

  28. It's because I said I'd pass out if I ever met you, right? Yep, sorry ladies - I freaked her out so now she can't show you the cards. ;)

  29. What a nice shower your co-workers gave you!

  30. Looks like you've got some great coworkers!

    I'm the only woman in our office, so I can only imagine them throwing me a shower of any kind! The only thing they throw for me, or should I say at me, are rubber balls and rubber bands!

May the Lord bless you and keep you safe today! Thanks for the comment, friends! :)
