Couples Baby Shower Barbeque

A couple of weeks ago, Eric and I had our second baby shower - a couples barbecue thrown by my two besties; hosted at my MIL's house. It was so wonderful, mostly because the people there are some of our favorite in the whole world. The shower didn't even remotely feel like a shower - more just like a fun dinner where we happened to open gifts for about 15 minutes. 


 Delicious food is a requirement for a baby shower, in my opinon.

Eric's dad cooked up amazing hamburgers and brats... We ate them all, obviously.


 My two besties. Love you, both. 

So thankful for these pretty ladies and for their great mom advice. 

 When you can't drink beer, you slurp on cream soda.


I have the weirdest friends ever. 


dress: asos (similar) (similar non-maternity) // 
necklace: ebay (similar) //shoes: naturalizer

The shower was absolutely perfect. It was so fun having both my guy and girl friends there. Guys like babies too (I think). I felt very loved and very blessed - we are at the point where this baby doesn't need much else - we are so thankful for the generosity of our friends and family. Only 5 more weeks until baby boy's due date!

  7. How fun! I love showers that feel more like parties/BBQs - it's fun to have everyone involved, and who needs the cheesy games, right? Just good food. That's the approach we took for the 1st birthday party too :)

  8. What a fun idea! I think we should get the guys involved more often in things like this. I know so many dads to be are super excited and want to celebrate it, too! And who doesn't love a BBQ?!

  9. Sorry if I comment twice, but my first comment isn't showing up for some reason. Love this idea for a BBQ because yes it is all about the food...and I guess the company doesn't hurt either. Haha. You look adorable! Love that pic of all the guys touching your belly. Hilarious!

  10. I love that picture with your friends touching your belly! For my wedding pictures, our photographer made my dad and father-in-law both give me a kiss on opposite cheeks at the same time. I think it was an awkward experience for all three of us. Happy t-minus 5 weeks!!

Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
