Celebrating Baby Number 2 with a Brunch Themed Baby Shower

June 27, 2018 in Pregnancy - No Comments

This past weekend, one of my closest friends threw me a Brunch Themed Baby Shower, and it was seriously the best afternoon celebrating this sweet girl before her arrival. Complete with old and new friends, it was a potluck style baby shower, and we ate on some of my absolute favorite foods. And everyone got a good buzz off some mimosas while I watched. Truthfully, I could not have planned a better afternoon for myself, and I was so surprised with how much she paid attention to detail. Everything from my favorite foods, flavors (cake), and flowers–it was perfect.


When I was pregnant with Grayson, my husband and I lived in Washington State and knew absolutely no one for the majority of the time we spent there. We had no friends or family close by, and, when the time to have a baby shower came around, I just didn’t have one. During this pregnancy, I decided early on that I didn’t want a shower again. Partially because I don’t know that many people here and partially because I just didn’t want to fuss with it. That sounds horrible. Thankfully, my friend pestered me about it for the last four months, and I’m so glad that she did.

The Decor

_LSG4996Everything was very simplistic, which I love. I’ve never been super into extravagant anything (except makeup and skincare routines and Target trips). She incorporated a ton of florals even in the cake, beautiful floral arrangements in Mason jars, including my favorite flowers–Sunflowers.

Each guest received a mini succulent when they left. If you follow my Instagram, you’ll see that I was all over town looking for the $1.99 Mini Succulents from Aldi on Friday. Which, if they’re still on sale, you need to high tail it to your nearest Aldi and grab some. (I haven’t killed mine yet, if anyone was wondering).Untitled-1

The Food

Potluck style is my favorite because everyone can bring a little something, and you’re left with tons of options for everyone to choose from. We snacked on everything from Spinach and Artichoke Dip to Donuts.
We even had trays of Chick Fil A Chicken Minis, as well as some Chick Fil A Nuggets sandwiched between two mini waffles and drizzled with syrup. (This was my favorite).



Mimosas were also flowing for everyone but me…I was guzzling water and sparkling grape juice.



I had such a great time celebrating this baby, and I can’t wait for her to be here! We have about 4 weeks now until my due date–and I can’t believe how close we are!

  • Today is #NationalPeanutButterDay! 🥜
This sandwich is probably one of my favorites ever to make. I started making it back in 2015 when I was breastfeeding Grayson and forever hungry. Typically, I make it with bacon...but my husband ate all of the bacon and didn’t tell me. 🤦🏻‍♀️
(It’s just as good with sausage though). I used my @unprocessyourfood Dash Mini Waffle Maker to make these delicious homemade waffles, which I then spread a nice helping of @samsclub Members Mark Natural No-Stir Creamy Peanut Butter on top of. I topped it with some fluffy scrambled eggs and a breakfast sausage patty. To complete it, each sandwich gets a drizzle of maple syrup. 
I love a good salty and sweet combo. 
Also, I’m still trying to figure out my best space in this new kitchen to take my photos. Bare with me while I do!
  • I’ve been gone from this space for so long... I don’t know what’s happening. Am I doing this right? 😂😂 #dollypartonchallenge
  • I wasn’t a huge fan of 2019, honestly. We struggled in a lot of ways, and I’m sure (I know) that some of that will trickle in to 2020 as well. But, we had some really great moments.
Like this one...seems simple and sweet but it’s probably one of my favorite days of 2019. We were randomly buying eggs at Sam’s...I was having an awful day and felt super depressed at all of the obstacles on our plate. I was even mad that my husband made me get dressed and leave the house.. When we got in the car to drive home though, we got the news that we were approved for our house! (Which I will talk more about as we start gearing up to move on the 16th). Having just one thing we were worried about taken off our plate was just what I needed that day. Just. What. I. Needed. 
Happy New Year, y’all!
  • 👋🏻 👀 We did something potentially super exciting today. Keep your fingers and toes crossed for us, and keep us in your thoughts, as we will either have really good news right after Christmas or really crappy news. Hahaha.
  • He told me “Ho, Ho, Ho—Goodnight!” tonight, and insisted on wearing this hat to bed. •
