showered with love

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

As I mentioned yesterday I had the baby shower of my dreams this weekend! My best friend Carrie hosted it and did not disappoint! The girl has mad skills in party planning and I was floored by her attention to detail. I definitely took notes for all of my future mommies whose showers I plan on throwing. 

I got some incredibly adorable gifts and can't wait to show some of those off later this week. I am one blessed mama that's for sure! It was so wonderful to have 20 of my closest girlfriends around me, a handful of which flew all the way down to southern Cali from northern Cali just for me and baby B! Here we are...

  6. I am new to developing web sites and I was wanting to know if having your site title relevant to your articles and other content really that critical?

    I see your title, "Blogger: Nat your average girl... " does seem to be spot on with what your blog is about however, I prefer to keep my title less content
    descriptive and based more around site branding. Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea?
    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated.
