Baby shower! | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

Baby shower!












Gove was so cute and kept wanting to help bring over presents to see what was inside!


Opening up my old baby clothes! ^




Last weekend was my baby shower!! It was at my sister in law's perfect pinterest house (Sharisa) and my other SIL's and MIL were so sweet to help make sure everything was perfect!! The theme was a desert/ succulent/ cactus type thing with yummy mexican food and cute little cactus' and succulents (of course) and everything couldn't have gone more perfectly! Oh also little s/o to my brother, Cam, for offering to take pictures!

Seriously you guys, you don't know gratitude until you have any sort of shower/ wedding/ stuff like that. I felt so loved and grateful for everyone who came and helped put everything together!! I got to see a few people earlier this week who couldn't make it to the shower and it has just been overwhelming (in a good way) how dang kind and generous people have been!!

Baby girl is going to be stocked up on all the things she needs :) One of my favorite gifts that I got was getting my old baby clothes and dresses to use! I had asked my mom if she had any old dresses from when I was a baby and luckily she did! I am mostly excited for the dresses. Some of them were ones I remember seeing pictures of myself in and I can't wait to put baby girl in them and compare our pictures and ahhhh! I'm just so excited about that. I just think it will be so special to have her in some of my old dresses. Jason thinks it's weird to use my old dresses haha but I'm sure once it happens he will melt, too :) 

She is officially due in 22 days (I'm 36 weeks, 6 days) so technically she could come any day now! I got checked for dilation this week and I am 1cm. I used to think it was SO WEIRD for people to say how dilated they were because I didn't realize it was your cervix that was dilated... I thought it as something else so I was always like "Why would I want to know that???" haha But it's my blog and I figure people who read this made that choice so if you are offended by dilation talk, please forgive me ;) 

Anyways though, everything is getting more and more real! We get our carpet changed early next week which means we can FINALLY set up the nursery!!! We didn't want to set it up and then have to move everything for the carpet to get changed so I have been anxiously waiting for it to be done so we can set everything up!! 

xo,
Candace

  1. LOL okay, the dilated thing. TOTALLY thought that meant something else and whenever anyone ever mentioned it I would think, "ew what why?" But makes sense now! So thank you for clearing that up! I clearly know nothing about pregnancy lol. Anyways, seriously SO SWEET. And LOVE the theme!!! As I was scrolling through the pics I was thinking how very "Arizona" it was haha. Love it. And I can't believe your Mom still had your baby clothes! That's so sweet. My Mom would never. Plus my sister was born after me so I'm sure she had them also, meaning double wear, meaning they're probably garbage. Plus my Mom did not dress me cute haha, so I wouldn't want them anyway. YOURS look cute though. And it's not weird! JASON!

    1. hahahah so I am pretty sure we thought dilation meant the same thing... and I always would think it was weird when people would share how dilated they were because I was like "I do NOT want to know that info!!!" but since I know now (like 2 weeks ago learned it's the cervix and not what I thought) I decided it wasn't that bad after all. SO yeah i'm glad I'm not the only one who didn't know and would be super weirded out by it. haha seriously tho, it was Arizona to a T! And kind of Texasy ish right? Gotta stick to my roots :) Luckily I'm the youngest and only girl so they were all just used by me! All the dresses I'm so excited about! Jason will learn to love it ;)

  4. What a lovely shower and I think it's so awesome your mom still has some of your baby clothes. I'm not sure if my MIL has any from my husband as there are five kids and they moved around a bit...I should ask though.

    I'm 39 + 1 day and I'm finally 1 cm. You might beat me!

  7. What a beautiful baby shower!! Sophie occasionally wears my tarheels shirt from when I was her age! Maybe her kid will wear it too haha. I think it's amazing to past down clothes, it's no different then heirlooms!

    I was not even dilated when my water broke...so I had to get poticin immediately to help speed the process up since I was losing amniotic fluid like crazy.

    1. Thank you!! And I think that is so cute/ special she wears it :) Something sentimental about it that I just love! How long was your labor? I'm glad they got her out safely and she is a perfect little girl :)

  8. Hahaha totally not offended by your dilation talk! (; Actually so excited for you! It's so nice to have a shower especially when women attend who have been through it before give you gifts. Take all the advice you can! Sure, you can tweak it here and there once she comes, but it's so nice having all of those things to think about. (: I can't wait! I hope you're taking these next weeks to relax and enjoy the last bits of your pregnancy! <3
