2 baby showers in 1 weekend: Baby Jaynes

After the first baby shower of the weekend we were off to the second! We arrived in Greenville, SC from TN around lunch time and met up with our friends Justin and Emily.

Justin and Eric hung out while Emily and I attended Carla's baby shower that afternoon at 2. Chris and Carla who live in NYC (in case you remember our trip to NYC a few years ago) are expecting a baby boy in July.

The shower was downtown in apartment above shops. It is owned by a family friend and wasn't being used so it was great for decorating especially with the exposed brick! I love this "little boys are made of" sign.

This shower had an adorable frog and blue/green theme. It's neat when some of the food is incorporated into the theme too.


Framed printables at a shower are such a great idea. These sugar cookies were delicious. Since the shower was in the afternoon they had snack foods and desserts for everyone to munch on while they mingled.


All the ladies got to guess Baby Jayne's arrival date. My date is July 7th... lucky number 7 right? Although that would make her overdue by several days but the days closer to the due date were all taken.

Then we played the pretty popular shower game where you had to guess the names of nursery childhood books by a description using a lot of synonyms... some were easy and some were hard.

We played one more game where you had to guess the name of the song and artist when a short clip was played. All the songs had "baby" in them. I was not so great at this game trying to remember artist names but did pretty well with the song names. It was fun to see some of the ladies born before us trying to figure out Baby Got Back.

Of course we had to see what awesome presents Baby Jaynes received.

We did a group gift from several of us but I also made him a Clemson class of onesie and a fish outfit (same fish outfit as Whitney and Tyler... luckily they don't live in the same city so the babies wont have a "that is my outfit!" moment). He is going to be the most stylish baby out and about in NYC that's for sure. I promise to share pics of the fish outfit soon.

It was getting late in the day so the lighting isn't awesome but Emily and I had to get a picture with the mom to be. I love how our hands happen to make a heart!

This is a pic I snapped of Carla with her sweet Clemson roommates.

Then we went back to see how much trouble the boys had gotten into while we were gone and Eric and I were on the road back to home sweet home, Charlotte.

We had such a great time and I was glad to be a part of this special celebration for Baby Jaynes. We cannot wait for his arrival and to hear what his name is!

  1. I previously used expensive diapers and hated them. My daughter's pediatrician gave me Honest on one of my visits and I was hooked. They are softer, more absorbent and I've only had a few "loose-booty" clean-ups with it. Also, the Pampers don't leave the tiny "crystals" on my daughters tushy like the Huggies did. I recently ordered the honest diapers for my 11 month old and love them too. I have 2 friends who also liked them after using a few of my diapers.
