Pampering Presley!

My dear friend Ashely was surprised by God.... and is now expecting her 3rd child, 1st little girl! We are tickled pink for her because every mommy should have a little girl to go shopping with and get her nails done together.

Our small group hosted a baby shower on March 22nd. The ring leader was Erin Carroll, so an extra special thank you should be given to her, as she designed the entire shower, got our shopping list down to a "T" so we didn't go over budget, and ended up doing the finishing touches to the water bottles and a few other tasks. Erin, we thank YOU! I know you are not going to be happy with me about this special thanks, but accept it... you deserve it!

Any hoooooo, Ashely was blessed with the presence of some of her closest friends and family in Christ. She was all smiles. AND if I am not mistaken, is finally prepared for her soon-to-be baby girl... PRESLEY!!!!!!!!!!!! Isn't the name FAB?

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I had holy plans for you." Jeremiah 1:5

We cannot wait to meet this newest addition. Ashely, aren't you so excited? The coolest part is that Presley is due on Tyson's birthday, MAY 11th.
What a "little" DIVA! And no... I am NOT speaking of Presley!! Just teasing. She is the smallest 7 month pregnant lady I have ever met.

Here are some of the details of the shower...
I started making this diaper cake and my step-mom took over. Didn't she do a great job "blinging" it up?
Compliments of BOW-tiful stuff's hair accessories!!!
The food table.
The o so gorgeous water bottles, designed by ERIN!
The fluffy pom-poms.
The cake matched the diaper bag! Erin makes SCRUMPTIOUS cakes if anyone needs a "cake lady!"

The guests mingle and eat in honor of this new gift from God.
The mommy-to-be gets ready to open gifts.
Opening Gifts.
Ashely requested "GIRLY" things instead of necessities for Presley. Ask and you shall receive. "Ashely, pull this tab!" It was a trick!
It was like a clown car. The bows kept coming and coming and coming!
I think Presley is set for LIFE as far as hair accessories goes.
Aunt Kristin got Presley her first piece of jewelry, a personalized, beaded bracelet.
Aunt Jody got Presley a monogrammed blanket.
And all of us girls chipped in to get Presley and mommy a girly diaper bag.
The finished cookie. This is what we gave our guests. Homemade, heart-shaped, "P" cookies, with a tag revealing our gratitude for their visit and gift.
