On November 14, 2020, my sweet lifelong friends Kendall, Natalie and Lauren and their precious mamas (who are like second mamas to me) hosted the loveliest baby shower for baby Hamilton and I!
It was such a fun day and a wonderful mix of my friends from college, old friends, family and some of my mama’s dear friends. It meant the world to me that my aunt Reta travelled from Indiana, my sweet Taylor from Atlanta, and Ashley/Logan/Laura from Clemson/Greenville area!
We enjoyed so much delicious food and tons of sweets (my fav!). Sweet potato cake, apple donuts, banana pudding, deviled eggs, ham pin wheels, and so on! It was wonderful.
I received so many amazing gifts and was truly humbled by everyone’s love and support for us in this special time. Some of my favorite “surprise” gifts were a baby Clemson tailgate chair, barefoot dreams baby blanket, so many sweet loveys/stuffed animals, and a tiger swaddle. My mom and aunt Reta went in together to get me the most beautiful woven bassinet of my dreams and I squeal every time I look at it. I cannot wait for our sweet baby to be snuggled up in it and for it to be something I pass down to my children. Honestly every gift was perfect.
The hosts had me answer some questions about old wives tales to guess gender, which was a lot of fun. Girl won again, just like at last shower!
At the end of the shower after a lot of people had left, it was so special to just spend time with Kendall, Natalie and Lauren and Rhonda and Robin also surprised my mom with a bundt cake for her birthday, because it was her actual birthday! I was so happy for her to be able to celebrate with her friends and sister! It was just the BEST day and one I will cherish always! 🙂
