Ladybug Shower Recap

Back to reality!  We finally got home last night a little before 1 AM, but as usual I needed to partially unpack, and shower before getting into sleepy mode.  After being in the car for 15 hours, I was wired.  When I did finally settle down, it was fantastic sleeping in my own bed!  That really is one of the greatest feelings, isn't it?

Before recapping ANY other details from our NY trip, I've got to do an entire post dedicated to the baby shower!  EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT!  My Mom really outdid herself, and thought of all the details...I just have to share it with you all.  Brace yourself for a lot of pictures!

Let's start with the adorable ladybug invitations...
 The shower was at one of my favorite local restaurants.  The food is phenomenal, you literally can't go wrong here...EVER!  I ordered the eggplant parmesan...DELISH of course!
 As soon as I walked in the room, I obviously noticed the ladybug balloons.  I was about 99% certain there would be a ladybug theme.  The fact that Mom was able to order these red balloons with black dots was amazing!  Good find Mamma!
Here I am with the incredible lady herself!  Don't ask why we both wore blue, clearly I am having a just sort of worked out that way.  Still, I'd say we look fabulous!  Don't you think?
 My handsome hubby brought me to the shower.  We are posing in front of the (ladybug) wishing well.
Even more ladybug details...
 I LOVE these ladybug lollipops that my Mother-In-Law made for favors!
The entire time, I kept saying how I just couldn't get over how many presents I had there to open!  A LOT of people shipped their presents to my Aunt and Uncles house in South Florida.  (My apartment doesn't accept's a whole thing.)  We will be getting the rest of those (pretty much all of the bigger items) in a few weeks!
My Mom surprised me with a pink Coach diaper bag!  I think the expression on my face says it all!
When we left NY, hubs did the most incredible job packing out the car.  It was all very strategic.  In order for it all to fit, we ended up returning 2 larger boxes, that we will be repurchasing down here on Saturday.  Good plan, don't you think? fits!!!
 Now it is all home, and in the nursery...I can't WAIT to go through it all later!
This little peanut is just so lucky to have so many friends and family members who care so much about her!  Stephen and I are speechless, we can't get over all of this.  Saying we are blessed would be an understatement.  

Thank you Mom for planning such a wonderful shower, WE love you...all 3 of us!  XO
