Baby Shower

Sunday was my baby shower :D It was a surprise but one of my friends messed up and told me by accident! But for everyone else I pretended I didn't know. Mark organised the whole thing and even made some buns. He did tell me after that he was going to decorate them but ran out of time. They tasted amazing though! He also had pink balloons, baby shower cups and plates, a banner and personalized kitkats.




My friend came and picked me up and we went out for a drink and a catch up which was lovely. She then brought me back home and made an excuse to come into the house. A few other friends were all waiting for me in the front room. It was only a small shower... there were 5 of us in total but I couldn't of wished for anymore as all my close friends were there. 


We played games and had cake and buns to eat. The games we played were guess mum's bump size, the poopy nappy game and guess how many sweets were in the baby bottles. The bump game was so funny... watching them try to guess how big they thought my belly was with a piece of string. They all thought I was a lot bigger than I actually was. The poopy nappy game is a game where you melt different chocolate bars in a nappy and you have to guess which chocolate is in which nappy by smelling them.... very funny!! And the last we each had to guess how many sweets were in the baby bottle. Each game had a prize which Mark also organised.


After the games I opened presents and everyone spoilt baby girl so much!! I was overwhelmed with everything and did tear up!! She got lots of lovely clothes, bath things, nappies and even a play mat/gym.




I must say the biggest surprise was Mark's present... he got me an AMAZING nappy cake!! I didn't even know he knew what they were. Everyone at the shower was also amazed. It was beautiful.




After the presents we chatted about baby things and watched baby girl have hiccups and go crazy inside my belly. I had an amazing time and couldn't of asked for anything more. I'm so very grateful to Mark for organizing everything and doing such a good job. He is so sweet!


Thanks for reading,

  3. Awh that's so sweet of him! I wish I'd had a baby shower but when my friend asked me I turned her down :( Also, my other half would have never pulled it off- when we mentioned baby shower he looked puzzled and said 'That seems a bit unnecessary- can't you just hold him and I'll spray him with our shower- save us some money' XD
