Baby, it's cold outside! {a baby shower}

Happy Tuesday, friends!

I know - it's been a while. Again. This poor little blog just has not stood a chance of thriving against my every day life as of late. Alas. It is what it is! The longer I'm away from sharing in this space, the more I feel like I don't know where to begin or what to say, which keeps me from writing anything at all. So! I'm jumping in with both feet today to share about a special evening we had in December - one I don't want to forget.
When Michael & I were visiting my family in Ohio over the holidays, we were blessed to have a gorgeous baby shower thrown for us. It was a couple's baby shower, which I really liked. The dad should get to celebrate, too! And we're back in town so rarely that it was a great chance for both of us to see our family and friends who attended.

The theme of the shower was Baby, It's Cold Outside. I know - so. stinking. cute. Right?? The coordinating party invitations were from minted:

Guests arrived to a luminary lit driveway...
were instructed to leave their coats on our screened in porch...
...and come inside for the festivities! 

Every detail of the party was so very thoughtful. There was a place for guests to share their advice for us...
 ...and a place for them to guess when our sweet boy will arrive!
And then, of course, there was the food. And it was delicious!

Is this "chilly bar" not the cutest?!

The sweet treats were also amazing. There were cookies and milk, champagne bubble candies, chocolate cupcakes, vanilla taffy...
...but my favorites were probably the scrumptious cake pops {I had never had one before! YUM!}.
I also loved the hot cocoa bar - so fun! {Hot cocoa and whipped cream not pictured!}
All the decorations were beautiful, too.

The heart put into the evening was so apparent.

Such a special night with dear family and friends to celebrate our baby boy. We are so grateful and feel so blessed! 

Also...did I mention he is due one month from tomorrow? (!!!!)

Whether it's cold outside where you are or not, I hope you're warm, cozy and well. 
Thank you for being here!

P.S. COMING SOON - pictures from a super cute shower my in-laws threw for us in Michigan!
