michele is having twins!

Today I had the pleasure of attending my BFF Michele’s Baby Shower. I feel like I was just at her wedding yesterday – time is flying by way too fast and now she is a few short weeks away from being a mom!

The shower was held at Nottoway Park Hunter House – I used to play at the park here as a kid! nottoway

I was excited to go to Michele’s shower to see my good friend who is 7 month pregnant.

I was also excited to wear my new dress! Thanks to Hope’s for my dress – the lovely ladies at Hope’s sent me this dress to enjoy & I was pumped to receive it just in time to wear this weekend! I love it!

So a big highlight of the day was the gender reveal – no one except Michele & her husband, Eric knew the sex of the babies going into the day. When we first arrived, we had to guess what we thought the babies were going to be!

After making our guess it was time to eat. The event was catered so there were tons of food options.

We started out with a variety of appetizers, sandwiches & salads for lunch…

Then it was time for a game!

We played Like Mother, Like Father?like mother like father

In the game there were different scenarios that either Michele or Eric did as a child – we had to guess who did what, and we learned a few things about the parents to be along the way.

After the game it was time to open presents! Michele got lots of goodies for the little babies on the way!

And then it was time for the big reveal! Michele got custom yankee candle labels printed with the gender of the babies – she gave one to her mom and her mother in law so they would be the first to see.

After the big reveal there were lots of hugs to celebrate the soon to be arrival of two baby boys. It was a great way to end the party and I was so excited to be there to share in the big announcement of Michele & Eric’s babies!

After the festivities had come to an end it was time to say goodbye – but not before one last treat!

twins are sweet

We were sent home with mason jars full of little sweets to toast the twins. I enjoyed the specific candy within the jars, specifically the Double Bubble gum & Cry Baby’s

Oh and we can’t forget about the Doublemint gum! 🙂

Congrats to Michele & Eric again – I can’t wait to meet your twin boys!
