Baby Shower #1 - Raleigh, NC

I have been promising you pictures from my shower all week, so I figure it's time I deliver on that promise!  This past weekend was my first baby shower in Raleigh, NC.  It was hosted by Dan's family (sister Meredith, sister-in-law Andrea, mother-in-law Susan) and two girlfriends (Ashley & Steph).  To say that it was beautiful/incredible/amazing does not even do it justice.  It was so thoughtful, well-planned and just all around perfect, and I had such a wonderful time!  The shower was a brunch which they hosted at Porter's Tavern in Raleigh.  Porter's is one of Dan and I's favorite places - if you've never been, you must go.  We all got a choice between French Toast, Huevos Rancheros and a Cobb Salad.  I, of course, went with French Toast because it's my favorite - but everyone raved about all of the entrees.

My sister, Katy, was nice enough to take a TON of pictures for me, so I'll use those to show you how awesome the shower was.  I am not posting a lot of photos of the gift opening, mainly because she seemed to catch me making a funny face/talking in every one of those and I am vain.  ;-)

Had to post this because it's hilarious.  My girlfriend Moneque made it - she is amazing.  Check her out on Facebook at Gifts and Mo - she does everything!

Again, I can't say enough nice things about this shower.  We had a great turnout, and people were so generous.  I can't say enough how fortunate we are to be surrounded by such wonderful friends and family.  I can't wait for her to meet each and every single one of you!
