boots, babies and barbecue!

my amazingly awesome bff threw me a honky-tonkin' baby shower a few weekends ago, and i loved it! unfortunately i don't have many pictures of it either.  i'm so grateful for so many wonderful friends who came to celebrate little wyatt's upcoming birth and arrival!  four weeks to go, possibly less.  we'll see! 

my sister (step, but still...i always wanted sisters, and now i have kari and shawna, yay!), kari, came and hung out for a while.  aren't we cute in our pregnant-ness?  kari is a few months behind me, due with little cali later in the summer.  i don't know how she works as hard as she does plus being prego.  she is a professional chef and has her hands full.  rest kari!

nina is so dang creative! where do i even start?  wish i'd taken pictures of the food tables and such...she is amazing.  we ate homemade pulled-pork sandwiches (yum nina!), homemade cole slaw and baked beans (thanks lucynthia!...seriously, your beans ROCK) and my family's potato salad (gracias mom!).  nina also had my favorite, and constant craving...chewy chips ahoy.  so bad.  i could eat a whole bag in a day.  easy.  there was also old-fashioned coke in glass bottles, lemonade, strawberries with the dip from heaven and the DELICIOUS chocolate and oreo moose mason jarred dessert.  i'm still dreaming of just the food.  

there were also quilts laying about on the grass for us all to sit on, not to mention the cute gift holder and awesome "wyatt" sign.  oh!  and then the peonies, roses and hydrangeas!  my faves.

nina...seriously?  i heart you way too much, for obvious reasons.  and also for the not-so-obvious reasons.  

now wyatt is much more ready to come!
