Shower Idea! Couples shower!


My neighbor Sheila who you may remember makes the best seven layer dip ever, and my other neighbors threw me a couples shower! The Theme was PINK! Well, really what could be a better theme. We've had blue in this house but PINK is coming to town in the form of baby Coco! (Can you tell I'm excited?)

I think the couples shower was so fun. There were cocktails and it was so relaxed...I loved including hubby this time!! It was also fun seeing all our friends before the baby arrives!



Anyhoo, Sheila and the gang....





....threw a beautiful party complete with a full Mexican spread of fresh chicken and beef tacos. It was delicious!!











I was looooving the cake brought by neighbor Annie that had pink chocolate shavings!!!! (pictured above)

Best of all was friends coming together to celebrate something wonderful happening. Don't we all need that right now? I do!

Look at all the fabulous gifts I received!!!!










Hubby and I were so grateful.....



But he really got into the PINK Shower!!!

The gifts in those pics are so cute, is that first one a little bathing suit, Ahhh! Makes me want to have another baby (which as soon as we sell our KY house, we are going to try). Isn't it great to have so many loving friends. Love the pic with your hubby, funny.

How sweet of your friends to do that for you guys! Everything looks great!

I think couples showers can be so much fun if done right! My friend had one last year, and my fiance begged me to never make him go to one again! I think if it was done better, he would have had more fun!

And you friend is SO right about Baby Vegas- I remember it so well! I cherished it with my first and not so much with my second... one of my few regrets.
