Ashley & Baby Reese's Shower

Oh happy day! Ashley is expecting a little girl at the end of August, Reese Madison. Linds & I wanted to throw her the shower months & months ago--and have been thinking of ideas since! We had so much fun planning & preparing, I think we got a little more into it than most. Linda did the amazing cooking, so (of course) we had fabulous food. It was a short, sweet party full of sweet girls & tons & tons of presents! Ash has everything she needs & more--and no one deserves it more than she does. She has been an amazing friend & I know she will be an amazing mom.
Plus, can you please check out how hot she is?
I am pretty sure she is the hottest girl there & she is pregnant!

I love you Ash, thanks for letting us spoil you!

Linda, Ash, Me, & Linds

Jackie & Ash
*for the record, if I look even HALF this good at 7 months pregnant I will be the happiest woman in the world, are you kidding me? I mean SERIOUSLY?

& more friends!

Oh Janelle, how we LOVE you!

And the million presents begin. Here is Ash "Oooo"ing & "You did NOT!"-ing over Juicy baby sweatsuits!

enjoying red velvet cake & tea cakes while Ash opened gifts

We had a diaper raffle-everyone brought diapers in addition to their gifts & we raffled off chic beach bags & beach accessories. Ash is set for life with diapers now!

Such pretty ladies

this isn't even 1/4 of the gifts she got...

Ashy & her mama

I made these letters "It's a Girl" to hang over our candy bar. They are rhinestoned & all kinds of detailed--I know, I am getting too into it!

We did tissue flowers as our decor in the backyard. Big, medium, & small-they were so much fun to make & gave the perfect "pop" of color we needed!

My very first experience arranging flowers! I was SO in love with it! I could do it everyday. I loved the colors we picked too.

our first event!

Look at that cute belly!!! We are SO excited to meet her when she comes, I can't believe how quickly time has flown! She will be here before we know it.
This is the loot! Her ENTIRE car was filled to the roof & some in her mom's car too.

Oh my gosh, I am dying right now! Every single thing about her shower was amazing. She looks absolutely stunning. You guys nailed the decor, I've never seen a cuter baby shower. I am so glad she got so many great gifts. I'm still sad my present didn't get there in time. I have a few words I'm saving for the postal service. Your glitter letters turned out perfect!!! I just love the whole thing and really really wish I could have been there. You and Linds are amazing. I am so excited for Ash, she is going to be the cutest mom ever. I can't wait to meet Reese. I already love her to death. This all has made me want to get pregnant even more. Yay for Ash and a successful baby shower!
