Showers Galore

I had a baby shower this weekend....and it was a blast!! It is so fun to have everyone in the same room to celebrate you and your new little baby. I would be lying if I said I didn't love every second of it.

My Aunt Carol really went out of her way with the food, and the flowers and the fun. Everyone was very generous and we came home with some really great things. Here are some pictures:

Me and my moms. I think they planned their coordinating outfits!!
Why is my aunt not a florist??

Grammy, me and my beautiful mother in law
Mary, me and Anna. I love my sisters!
Nana, Me, Anna and my cousin Krista. It was so nice to have my Hoekstra relatives there too!

Later on in the evening, I had a bridal shower for one of my best friends from high school. We had such a great time!! Everyone was enjoying wine and Limoncello, and it was kind of funny to be the sober one watching them do what we all usually do!! They are such a fun bunch, and after my terrible week, I really needed to hang out with these girls. Here are some pictures. I included the outtakes because I couldn't help myself. HILARIOUS!!! And it was obvious there was wine and Limoncello involved in this evening!!

Left to Right: In the back: Katie, Megan, Liz and Brianna. Front Row: Lana, Megan (the bride to be) and MWAH!

And the outtakes. I love these!!
