my first baby shower ever...

this past saturday i was given a baby shower by my old locker partners, marta and allie. it was such a hit and i'm just positive that more people came because of marta's cute invitations than because of me.
i actually stole these pictures from marta's blog that describes the shower with so much more eloquence... its almost poetic. but i thought i'd copy some of my most favorite pictures that she took and post them here too. (i hope that's ok mart)
(first photo above: allie, marta, me)

marta and allie served delicious quich and warm cinnamon rolls along with fruit and cookies. it was all so delicious.

my favorite part was marta's subtle little touches. i didn't discover the cute jelly beans and baby fact cards until the end, but once i did i filled my mouth full of the yummy tasting treats.
anyway, big thanks to allie and marta. it was truly a baby bash! there were girls in attendance that have influenced every stage of my life (including my mom... who has influenced all of my stages of life)
list of attendees:
marta [halverson] dansie
allie holtkamp
mom [christine keyser]
mary irene [homer] allen
kira [steadman] bingham
katie [macfarlane] wolfert
jenny [osborne] bullock
chelsie [choles] brady
maresa madsen
tanya tapp
ashleigh [mee]
jenn henry
alysia rathbun
michelle paskett
vivian smith
and in answer to those who are surprised that i'm still so close to my high school locker partners.... all i can say is, some friendships are just meant to last.

So fun that you already had a shower. Let us know what you still need. By the way - the link to Marta's blog didn't work. I would love to check out her description if you can fix it.
