Modern Safari Shower

I have some pretty amazing friends and family!  Not only did they let me be a part of the planning of my baby shower for Baby #2, but they also saved the trash-talk until after they left my house that first day that we had a "baby shower meeting". Why would they trash talk, you ask?  Well, I handed each of them a file folder containing an inspiration board along with various links on where to find certain items necessary for the vision I had in my head.

I know......it's ridiculous to be that controlling that I needed to be involved in the planning of my own shower.....but that's just the way I am.  So to Kolini, Jennifer, Becky, Megan, Monique and my mom, I say.....THANK YOU!  You guys are awesome! You put up with me and my controlling ways, and you listened to my gripes about the rainy weather that came the weekend of the shower.  Despite it not turning out the exact way I envisioned it originally {due to rain},  I think it turned out AH-MAY-ZING!
