Jen's Shower

This weekend I had the honor of attending my dear friend Jen's baby shower (here's her blog). She is going to be an amazing mother, and I am ridiculously excited to meet her little girl in a few weeks (well, several weeks...but still). Here are a few pics of the shower...

The delicious spread! I was particularly fond of the mini-quiches, or as I call them, "little bites of happiness."

Decorations by Faith (here's her blog)

More decorations. I am kinda in love with this...things to remember at my dream shower. 

This is the back of Faith's head, displaying the rock-awesome owl hairpin she wore. 

This is Jen. She is pregnant and rocking cowboy boots. Few women can say this. 

The spread. I was reminded of how insanely cute/adorable/teensy/sweet baby girl clothes can be. And baby shoes. And baby books. And baby thermometers. Seriously.

Alana and Jessi cut the cake, from Community Bakery (according to Jessi). It was superbly delicious. 

An action shot of Jessi cutting the cake. She did an excellent job.

The "cake" of baby washcloths. 

Yeah. This is awesome. 

Okay, so I have Instagram on my iPhone. I decided to make the other shots decidedly more "artsy" by using the Instagram filters instead of just uploading them straight from the phone. I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out. 

Just bask in the glow of a lovely mom-to-be...
