So the old saying goes, "sugar and spice and everything nice, that's what little girls are made of." Well I have found that BIG GIRLS also are made of everything nice!!
Some of my dearest friends threw me a super surprise dinner/baby shower at one of my favorite Japanese & sushi restaurants here in Athens (Shokitini for you that live in this area-it's fantastic, but they have no website, so I couldn't link it). I was just under the impression I was going for a casual dinner when I showed up with pink balloons and baby girl gifts galore at the table! I can't tell you how much of a sweet and kind gesture this type of thing is, especially since this is my third go around at the whole baby thing. Yet the friends keep making each baby feel very special.
This is a picture of a dress my friend Christen actually made from scratch on her own sewing machine! Hello, sooo talented. And she is also about two months behind me in delivering her babies-yes twins, double the fun! That's us below with our baby belly's. I also got tons of compliments on my t-shirt dress, which is actually NOT maternity (I've been anti-maternity clothes this go around if I can help it). It's from LA Made, (which actually has a maternity line),which is an affordable knit basic line but they are always on trend. It's also nice to get ANY sort of compliment when you're 7 months pregnant. So if you see a prego walking around, pay her a compliment...anything...it'll make her day;-)
Most of the pictures of me opening my baby girls presents are pretty funny and I have hilarious looks on my face, so it was hard to find many normal pics! Example below. But the baby clothes nowadays for little girls are amazingly small versions of things I would put in my own closet! Check out this cute purple embroidered dress??
I am soooo thankful for my girlfriends, those that are mothers and those that aren't to that place in their lives yet, they all inspire me in different and unique ways. I only hope that my little girl is blessed with great girlfriends in her life like I have been, because they are priceless!!
Thanks ladies for the wonderful night out- this mama needed it!!!
