Apparently Colorado is the place to be because my other friend, Brittanie, who I served with me on my LDS mission on Temple Square, lives in Colorado right now as well! The trip really was perfect timing because Brittanie is having her first baby at the end of December, so since I was going to be in town during prime baby shower time, I thought it would be fun to plan a little party for her in her honor.
Brittanie was nice enough to put me in contact with her other friend, Patti, who helped me plan the whole thing. Patti was a saint as she dealt with my insanity over the past few months. Planning the shower from afar made me a little nuts because I was so scared I was going to forget something and then be out of luck once I was in Colorado. Also, with the added inconvenience of New York City, I was constantly sending her items from Amazon.com--everything from double sided tape to cupcake liners. We planned the whole thing via email, which was awesome.

The theme of the Baby Shower was "Ahoy! It's a Boy!",
where we had everything decorated with a sailboat theme.
Patti's husband is a chef so they took care of all the food!
Thank goodness, because anyone that knows me knows how much I despise cooking.
The food tasted as good as it looked!
When the guests arrived they signed a children's book about a toy boat,
writing messages for both Brittanie and the baby to read together someday.

He chose the name "Thomas". Tom Savage--I like it.
|Brittanie claimed her pregnancy was contagious and if you touched her belly you would be next!|
