Oh The Place's You'll Go Baby Shower

    My older sister is having a baby in December and as soon as I found out I volunteered to throw her a shower. I love parties and babies, put the two together and what's not to love? Her "adopted momma" helped me get everything together and we had fun working together. When she found out she was having a girl I was SOOOO excited because I knew how cute this shower could really be. No offense boys, but you just aren't nearly as much fun! :p My sister's theme for baby's nursery is Dr. Suess so I wanted to try to put a girly, pastel twist on the theme and went with an "Oh the Place's You'll Go" approach. My amazing friend Kim helped me come up with my ideas and was even kind enough to send an entire package of adorable things for the shower. Is she a great friend or what? (Will list sources below!) I hope you guys think the shower turned out as cute as I do! It was such a blast to put together, I'm a little sad it's over. Ok enough blabbing, here's what you came for anyway;)

 Congratulations Felicia! You make an adorable little momma!
