Tea for Two...or Thirty!

So here is the long awaited post about the baby shower my fabulous and amazing bestest friend Bonnie through for me!

The shower was super fun and really cute. We had a tea party theme, because, well, we love tea so much! I can't wait to take Lorelei to tea for the first time at Lovejoy's--our favorite spot for high tea!

There were some super yummy sandwiches--all taken from some of my favorite Lovejoy tea sandwiches--stilton and pear, apple and cheddar, hummus, and chicken salad. We had a couple of salads, some of my step-mom Janet's amazing fruit salad Jell-O (I love me some Jell-O!) and lots and lots of cupcakes (lemon and chocolate)

Bonnie put together some fun games--try to guess how big around I was, putting pictures of me during my pregnancy in order and gift BINGO.

Overall, it was a fun and BUSY day!
Hanging out with Stacy and Liz--teacher friends from when I taught kindergarten!
