Baby It's Cold Outside // Baby M's Tahoe Shower

Psst -- today is the last day to enter the Whole Food Market and Diestel Turkey giveaway!

"It's really happening -- we're having a baby," said the eighth month pregnant woman to her husband Friday night. I'm not kidding. I think it finally set in. Time to start moving and grooving on the nursery!

This week Baby M was celebrated by all the Tahoe ladies plus a dear college friend. With our peanut being born in the dead middle of winter you can only imagine what the theme was!


These ladies did an amazing job. The shower was hosted at my friend Rosie's restaurant Blue Angel Cafe. Above the restaurant is the "Loft" which is perfect for events! Plus, their food is super healthy and yummy!


Yummy mini chocolate, almond and lemon cupcakes from Cakes by Grace. The best place in town for cupcakes. We actually had these mini cupcakes at our wedding too!


Table centerpieces


My long time friend and her little girl! They drove all the way from SF to celebrate with us.


Among various games like labor mad libs, present bingo and drain the bottle, guests were asked to channel their creative side and help create our babe's first alphabet book! 


Friends for 14+ years and counting. I can't wait for our girls to be besties!


My friend Natasha is also expecting. Of course we had to get a "bump" shot.


My friend Rosie & I. She bought our sweet pea the cutest crossfit onsie!


With all the lovely ladies! 


Living so far from family I feel extremely grateful to have such a large network of ladies I can call friends in Tahoe. I know they are as excited about Baby M's arrival as we are. Our peanut received so many thoughtful gifts including a number of books to help build her library. Now I just need to get on organizing everything!
