As I’m sure you’ve read, Emily and I like to hang out with a few awesome blogging moms who live here in our local area. We call ourselves the Big Deal Moms, because, we think we are as Ron Burgundy would say, “Kind of a Big Deal”. (Oh, and *maybe* because some of us are coupon/frugal bloggers.) Anyhoo, two of our group, the fabulous food bloggers Erin of $5 Dinners and Tricia of Once a Month Mom are both REAL pregnant right about now. And so, I decided that we needed to throw them a Big Deal Baby Shower!
I even COOKED, y’all. And used my FANCY CHINA and glassware and silverware. I don’t do that for just anybody!
(Thanks Tricia for the photos!)
After we stuffed ourselves with yummy food and cake (ok, fine, I bought the cake! Geez!) there were of course PRESENTS!!! When I told some great folks about the shower, they offered to send Erin and Tricia some items just to be NICE! Bethany from Little Peanut Originals sent Erin these amazing burp blankets:
Tricia received the one on the left (*cough*genderneutral*cough*), and I loved hers so much I went to Bethany’s Etsy shop and ordered the pink & orange polka dot one for a friend! These are the perfect little holder for your diapers and wipes. Throw it in your purse or diaper bag and go! Thanks, Bethany! She makes all kinds of great stuff including really cute Tooth Fairy Pillows for the older kiddos so check her out!
I wanted to get the girlies some great swaddling blankets, because I swaddling Sophie saved my sanity when she was little! Jill told me aden + anais had amazing swaddling blankets and they sent the girls each four for me to give them!
These are super-soft muslin blankets and the box even comes with swaddling instructions for the new parent. *Love* that!
We had a really great time at the shower. And both prego mamas looked GREAT! And I was quite disgusted by the fact that Erin, at 38 weeks pregnant, could wear these shoes, which my fat feet never would have fit in at that stage:
Thanks to all the Big Deal Moms who came to the shower and the great companies that sent gifts! Can’t wait to meet those Big Deal Babies!
