{WIWW} Baby Shower

On Monday I briefly mentioned the baby sprinkle that Julie and Kristin threw for me on Saturday.  I always think skirts or casual dresses are appropriate shower attire.  But Saturday was NOT a skirt or dress day because 1. it was freezing outside and 2. my support hose are just about an every day necessity now and I'm not a fan of the skirt and pantyhose look- so pants it is.
I was pretty pumped about this scarf I found on sale at Target for $12 last week.  I immediately fell in love with the blue polka-dots AND had a $10 Target gift card from Christmas that I had not used so I came home with the scarf.  
I'm really liking the blue and yellow combo as well.

Scarf: Target
Cardigan: Gap Outlet (old)
Top: Gap Maternity (old)
Jeans: Gap Maternity
Boots: Nine West Outlet (old)

Julie and Kristin were so sweet to host a shower for me and I must say that their table spread is pinterest worthy.  Don't you agree?

I mean how cute is the chevron table runner and polka-dot cake?  (And yes it tasted pretty amazing too....)

Julie and Kristin- the sweet hosts

Remember this Go Team Bowen Banner?  No?  Well let me tell you about it.  When Chris and I were engaged, he explained to me (according to his love of football and sports) that I would be joining "his team".  We would no longer be two people making individual decisions, but a team who decisions and actions would significantly affect the other.  "Team Bowen" soon became a common phrase around these parts.  This banner made its first appearance at my bridal shower, and has now made its way to both my baby showers.

So glad my mother-in-law and sister-in-law [and nephew] could could come down for the shower!

Kristin had a couple Polaroid cameras from her wedding so they took pictures for me at the shower and made me a scrapbook that everyone signed.  Yes, I went home with a mini-scrapbook full of memories.  Now I don't have to make one.  Amazing.

Thanks ladies!
