Dallas Baby Shower

After our fun shower last weekend in Austin, some of my wonderful friends hosted a beautiful baby shower for me in Dallas on Saturday.  Once again, I was overwhelmed with all the love our friends and family have for our growing family and so thankful for this time to celebrate!  The hostesses went above and beyond with so many sweet touches, and I loved every little detail.

I am so thankful for these beautiful ladies and great friends for putting together such a perfect morning to celebrate Betsy!

It was so special to have Katey's grandmother's beautiful demitasse cups at the shower.  These are the perfect size for a pregnant girl's cup of coffee!

Mom and Katey's mom have been friends since childhood, and Katey and I are only two weeks apart and grew up together, along with the other Katie below.  It was such a special time to all get to celebrate together this weekend.  Katey and Katie both have little girls already, and I'm so excited to be joining the club!

Lindsay and Emily were also so sweet to help host the shower, and having both welcomed little ones this spring and summer, I hope they are ready to answer all my infant-related questions!

Once again, our family traveled from all over Texas to be here for the shower, and I'm so glad they did!  And once again, Betsy received so many beautiful gifts.  I absolutely cannot wait to see her in all of her precious new outfits!  This child is also doing quite well in the bag department after receiving several darling embroidered bags in all shapes and sizes.  She'll be ready for some road trips in no time.

After the shower, we made some great progress in Betsy's room by getting the furniture placement figured out and hanging the window treatments Mom made.   It was so fun to have my parents and sisters here for the weekend to help with Betsy's room (and to watch the Aggies beat Auburn).  I am thrilled with how everything is coming together, and I can't wait to share some pictures of her room here on the blog after a few finishing touches!

Austin Baby Shower

Last weekend, Austin and I were spoiled with a precious couples' shower in Austin to celebrate baby Betsy coming later this fall.  Betsy received some beautiful gifts, and we absolutely loved the chance to celebrate her with our Austin friends and family!  

The hostesses included so many sweet details like these rattle cupcakes, beautiful cookie favors, and a cute crate for all of Betsy's new books.  I love that guests brought books instead of a card!  Betsy's library is off to a great start.

The photo booth was also a huge hit!  So thankful for our sweet sisters and my Mom who traveled to Austin to celebrate with us.  

Although our temperatures in Texas are still quite summery, I couldn't help but embrace a more fallish hostess gift for this shower.  And now I'm wishing I had scooped up another pumpkin spice tea for me! 

We are so blessed with wonderful friends and family all over Texas and are so thankful for their encouragement and for our time celebrating together!
