Once upon a baby shower was what started my Christmas vacay.  With a trip to Dallas that began with lunching at one of our favorite burger places, visiting some of our good friends, and finally meeting up with my girl and to attend her perfectly cute “Texas rustic” baby shower fit for one awesome baby boy & his momma!  What was rustic about it?  Well, how about burlap, banners & mason jars, for pure perfection!

It took place at the quaint La Madeleine in our previous home town.  Many of our dear friends from the area joined us in celebrating.  We had a wonderful time and as always it is so wonderful to see each and everyone of them! They made the Mommy (& BB’s), day very memorable.  Here’s a peek at the evening!

How cute are my adorable friends?  They even brought me some sweet gifts!


My gorgeous daughter, (the momma -to -be) & I!


As is the case, very often and totally by coincidence, we both wore black and leopard print scarves!  Are we cute or what?  Lol!  How does that happen???

 The menu~

  • assorted finger sandwiches
  • pasta salad
  • blackberry tea
  • cinnamon cake

Our once upon a baby shower was beautiful!  Thank you Em on a fantastic & memorable evening!
