waiting for baby mason...

This is Lynsey.  She's pregnant with baby boy Mason! I can't wait to see her be a mommy!!!  She will be terrific!!!

It's safe to say I would do anything for Lynsey, who's loyalty, sacrifice and friendship have known no bounds or limits.  I've seen her in action: she was my matron of honor!  More importantly, she's been a great friend to me since my sophomore year of highschool.  And I followed her to college too, where she always had my back and introduced me to my hubby!  I adore her and I am beyond excited to meet little Mason, my nephew, arriving this fall!
My mom and I hosted a baby shower for her. It was a chocolate and blue bonanza! It was a positively perfect evening for a shower!  And I was thrilled with how everything turned out. It was my first baby shower. Lynsey and her guests were delighted, pampered and pleased!
Chocoalte table clothes with blue napkins folded and pinned like diapers.
Party games and pencils in "Mason" jars, which Lyns noticed right away!
Lysney's Momma, Patty, provided the beautiful daisies. 
Daisies are the perfect shower flower!

A gift for baby Mason also used as part decor.

The life of the party: marsh mellow pops!
