OklaHOME for the Weekend

Monday, October 21, 2013

This Oklahoma weekend was absolutely wonderful. We got to see so many people that we love, making the exhausting 20 hours in the car worth it. (You can ask Grahm if he feels the same, since I drove approximately zero minutes the entire trip.)
On Saturday night, we went to a fun wedding in Oklahoma City. The bride was beautiful. The day was lovely. And I thoroughly enjoyed the feeling of fall. (Get your act together, San Antonio!)
Sunday before my shower, we got to have lunch with one of my dearest friends and her fiance. Katie, my sweet friend of over 12 years, asked me to be a bridesmaid, and I could not have been more thrilled.
Sunday afternoon was my first baby shower. It was absolutely perfect. My wonderful friend Molly was such a gracious host and designed everything to perfection. It was all pink and gray and elephant-themed, aka adorable.
Obviously :)
Molly designed this beautiful artwork for the nursery. I love the quote so much.
Grahm is now convinced that he should have a little pink bathtub too.
This is a quilt my grandmother gave me. Her great-grandmother made it long ago. Such a treasure for Baby Girl to have.
All my bridesmaids were there to celebrate Baby Girl. So thankful they could all be apart of the day.
The soon-to-be great grandmas and the soon-to-be grandmas. Notice our adorable badges that Molly made.
The aunties.
And the wonderful hostess, who made it all happen. 

So incredibly thankful for all the wonderful women in our lives, who spent their afternoon showering us with love and gifts. Baby Girl is already so loved, and I can't tell you how much that means to us.

For even more fabulous shower details and to meet the wonderful hostess herself, check out her blog!

Adorable shower!

Question though, how did you manage those long car rides? I am flying down to OKC and then driving all the way to Del Rio with the husband over Thanksgiving. I'll be 15 weeks, but over christmas will be a different story and another very long car ride. Tips would be appreciated :)

What a great weekend, your shower looks like it was so much fun - and that quilt is adorable (and such a heartfelt present!). My friend's shower is next month and she's also doing elephants and chevron, but in blue and yellow :)
