the baby shower that almost wasn't

So, I was getting ready for a baby shower on Saturday, one that some friends and I had been planning for weeks, and the host's husband called my husband. He asked him to "come look at something". Adrian came back and reported that the host's house had a gas leak and was therefore unsafe. With about an hour until the shower, it was moved to our house, and, as you can see from the pictures, was still a success. Special thanks go to my wonderful husband, who helped me whirlwind clean the downstairs.


The guest of honor and our almost-host. As you can see, babies come in droves around here. (Note the 4 month-old playing on the floor behind them.)

All in all, it was a lovely day celebrating with our friends. I'm so excited to meet their little girl!

Thanks for the wonderful shower - the team work on the last minute location change was most impressive! If I hadn't heard the gas leak story, I may have just assumed it was supposed to be at your house all along!

Thanks again, for opening your home. I know it’s no easy feat trying to get your house ready for unexpected guests! I'm glad we were able to surprise Emily!
