Modern Mami: My Beautiful Baby Shower! (PHOTOS)

Baby showers are awesome! There.  I said it.  I was torn. I felt a little guilty registering for gifts knowing that I was essentially asking my friends and family to buy me things. I was like a kid writing to Santa Claus

Dear Santa,

Please buy me a stroller. It’s black and silver. It costs 100 dollars. Also, I know it’s expensive but a breast pump would be great, too. I’ve made buying me gifts easy. I’m registered at Babies"R"Us. I promise to be good for the rest of the year.



But baby showers are a tradition so I let that Catholic guilt go and embraced the love and generosity of my wonderful support system. And I’m glad I did. Baby Bean made out with some serious swag!

Beyond the gifts, however, was the amazing gift of friendship that surrounded me. I was in awe of the women who came out to celebrate my baby boy and me. I was humbled. My sister-in-law and best friend, along with the help of so many others, hosted the shower. It was absolutely beautiful. My guests enjoyed yummy food, cocktails and champagne, the most decadent chocolate cake and vanilla cupcakes, and fresh flowers throughout. I wish I could have invited you all but take a look at some of the pics of my day, along with some of the gifts Baby Bean came home with!
