More parties for Lucy

My sweet friends at work threw me an amazing baby shower on my birthday. It was a wonderful way to celebrate. I felt loved and spoiled. Everything was amazing. I work with an incredibly talented actuary who missed her life calling to be a baker. She made me a cake that kicks my wedding cakes butt. It was so beautiful and ridiculously delicious.
I mean seriously? A three tiered baby shower cake?
With hand crafted sugar baby shoes?
I know. It is almost too much. We had a very hard time cutting into this beauty. Until we tasted it. Then it was devoured.
The food was all beautiful and so delicious.
Even the drinks were cute.
Tyler was able to take an hour off from school and come to the party. It was fun to have him there looking handsome in his new grown up work clothes.
Did I mention how spoiled I am? Well, Lucy is?
I really love my job and the amazing people I work with. I feel so lucky to have found such an amazing place to work over the past four years.
These are the lovely ladies who I spend my life with. I really spend the vast majority of my time with them, and I could not ask for better friends and coworkers. They threw a mean baby shower. And I can't say I am surprised, seeing as they are master of planning and organizing. We do this for a living after all.
I love them dearly.
And now we officially have every single thing we could possibly need or want. So anytime Miss Lucy would like to show up would be excellent.

A-maz-ing cake! Looks like it was a successful shower! I'm really happy you had such a great job for your stay in Portland!

I'm not sure which of these pictures to comment on first. I mean...the cake obvi. Gorgeous. But I LOVE the little carrots on the veggie tray and how the dip is in a cabbage. Wow. And is that cold asparagus? OMG. And the drink straws, prolly specially ordered online. With flaoting raspberries. These ladies are showing up the Mormons!

What I do take issue with is post on your SLC showers (dumb), no post on your new bday necklace (dumb), no post on your new iphone (dumb) or new iphone cover (dumb). All I'm sayin.

I think that photo of you and Tyler is beautiful. The fact that you can look that gorgeous and cannot even tell you are pregnant a week before giving birth is maybe the best gift of all!

That cake is UNBELIEVABLE.

And Megan Lisonbee Scott, you are a vision. You seriously look amazing!! Excited to see how cute of a baby you and Tyler make.

Dasha said...

Um,wow. Your co-workers are a classy bunch. Pretty sure a Costco sheet cake in the conference room is as fancy as it ever gets at my job. And I'm going to go ahead and echo everyone else by saying that you look amazing! Pregnancy definitely works for you. Hope you're still feeling OK and that Lucy doesn't take too long getting here!

Hi! I am Chelsea said...

Wow! That cake is incredible! And the shower looked so adorable. You lucky girl!
Ps. I died laughing at Andrea's comments!

These photos are so fun! I can't wait to meet Lucy someday. I also can't wait for this blog to be plastered with photos of her!
