The Saturday we left for vacation, also happened to be the day I hosted 27 women in my house for Courtney's baby shower. Woops - poor planning on my part. Luckily I had two co-hosts (Beth and Linda) and tons of help from all of the ladies in Courtney's Bible study, so besides having to juggle a little between packing and party-prepping, it really wasn't too stressful. And we actually couldn't get into our vacation rental until Sunday and we drove through the night, so the party didn't actually interfer with vacation at all.
I was really excited for this shower - Courtney is one of my best friends, and you only get to host a baby shower for your best friend once so we went all out! Courtney and Ian have been calling their baby "Blueberry" since they found out they were pregnant, so I thought having a blueberry themed shower would be absolutely perfect! (It helped that they are having a baby boy of course.)
So here's a few details from the party (most of these pictures were taken by Esther Schwander, one of the big helpers from Court's Bible study)

|We also had a yogurt bar - this was the only food item I was responsible for.|
|And of course, brunch would not be complete with out lots of coffee!|
|This doesn't have anything to do with the actual shower, but I thought this picture was so sweet! Weezie (Beth's mom) held Hank most of the shower while Ben packed upstairs.|
