On Sunday afternoon, I was lucky enough to be thrown a second baby shower by my New York girlfriends!
My friend and yoga instructor, Alana, was lovely enough to offer up her yoga studio to host the party. The space transformed into my baby shower so perfectly! I loved the whale decorations Kate found :)
The company was great, the food (especially the cupcakes) was awesome, and I was definitely spoiled with gifts and plastic bling. Henry has so much great stuff waiting for him now!
I was surprised with email messages read aloud from Nick, who was away in Stockholm, and my sister Jenn. I held it together up until Kate passed me her phone that had a video of Ben and Jillian with a “happy baby shower” wish on it.
Are you kidding me? “Princess Preggers” definitely lost it after that.
It really was so great to get together with everyone though, even some of my friends’ little ones. I’ll have something this cute soon!
The group shot was missing a few, but you know who you are.
Thanks again to everyone who came for a great shower!

Last week, I flew up to the Toronto area to spend 6 days with my family. This was my last long trip to Canada, while I’m still allowed on planes.
I spent two days with my sister and her family in Oshawa, and the second of those two was my first ever shower (besides, you know, the kind with water)! Jenn and my Mom threw me a baby shower where a few family members and some of my best friends came to play games, eat food, and visit with me. Since I don’t like being the center of attention, I wasn’t sure how it would be, but I loved it. It was so great to have some of my most favourite people all together in one room to celebrate my baby-to-be.
I was so happy to finally meet my friend Joe and Dori’s adorable son, Rowan…
…who was, strangely enough, dressed exactly the same as my nephew Ben.
Thanks to everyone who came out, especially the boys who hung around and waited for the BBQ to start!
Of course, Julia couldn’t leave without us taking belly photos. I can’t believe she only has two months to go!
I spent Monday to Friday at my parents’ cottage in Fenelon Falls. It was mostly pretty chilly, but we had a few nice sunny days (perfect for building chipmunk houses with Grandpa).
My Grandparents came to visit and stayed for a campfire and sleepover. My Grandpa got wild and spit sambuca into the fire. My Dad called him Gene Simmons.
