Baby Shower

This past Saturday, the awesome women in my life hosted a baby shower for Justin & I. I knew the date & time of the party, but the girls kept me out of the loop when it came to the theme. When I arrived at the hall, I was so surprised by the "Under the Big Top" theme -- it was so original! My sister-in-law, Christa, came up with the idea for the party as well as the decorations and the amazing (and delicious) cake. Being a martini guru, she even conjured up a pg-friendly libation for me to enjoy -- the 'CosMompolitan'. Yum!!
Overall, it was an incredible day. I was surrounded by 70 women whom I love as we ate, laughed and awwww'ed over adorable baby clothes! Here are some pictures:
