Recently my cousin Grace announced that she was expecting bundle of joy #2. I'm so excited because during most of her first pregnancy I lived hours away and didn't get to be around. I did go to her shower, and actually was there for the birth of my "niece". This time though I'm glad to be there for her more.
She recently asked me to do her maternity photo shoot (combined with family portraits) and we went out the last weekend to scope out a possible location.
Then I started thinking about how much I'd love to give her a shower. So I talked to her Mom and we agreed to co-host a shower together. So of course what was the first thing we did? Create a Pinterest board of course!! haha
Grace, her mom and I are all pinning and commenting like crazy these days on ideas....even though the shower isn't until mid-November. But it's never too early to start planning.
Here are some of our favorite pins so far:
We've also discussed games and activities - matching baby socks, blind folded diaper change, decorate a onsie, etc.
This weekend we are planning a trip to Scrap (a local second-hand craft supply store) and a few great thrift stores to start looking out for baby-shower items (never too early to start buying good deals). I'm just excited to help her with this shower and give her something wonderful.
