You may remember Carrie’s pretty face from her wedding pictures that debuted on the blog earlier this year. She and her husband Dru are expecting a baby boy in January and we’re so excited for them!
This was actually the first baby shower I’ve ever been to, so I loved seeing what actually happens at one of these babies. <—Pun!
Carrie’s baby shower reminded me a lot of a bridal shower, but with baby fun instead of wedding fun. We played games, ate yummy food, chatted and watched Carrie open gifts.
The food at the shower was delicious! I ate a bit of everything!
I loved the make your own yogurt parfait station.
I topped my vanilla yogurt off with fresh berries, chocolate chips, coconut and granola.
Croissants make the best sandwich bread. So buttery! I really enjoyed the chicken salad and tasted a hint of curry which I’d love to try to duplicate at home sometime.
Games of the afternoon included “name that baby food.”
We had to guess the different kinds of baby food based on smell.
I totally failed that one.
One thing I can tell you is that if I were a baby, I would be all over apple cinnamon baby food. That was the only one that smelled appealing to me. Keep the peas away from me!
We also did a baby word jumble before Carrie opened gifts. Can someone please tell me what a boppy is, because I had almost every word unscrambled and got stuck on that one!
Now it’s time to head out to dinner with Ryan and my father-in-law. Ryan’s dad arrived in town last night (we had a great time at Horse & Hounds restaurant) and I’m anxious to squeeze in some more quality time with him before he leaves tomorrow.
