This weekend was spent showering Baby Dietrich with lots of love and presents in my home town. A little background that some may or may not know about me, I come from a very large family. Specifically, my dad’s side of the family is huge! He is one of seven children (all boys and one girl), each of his siblings are married and have multiple children, so the cousins are endless, and I’m so blessed to be a part of it! A handful of my sweet aunt’s came together and devoted lots of time and energy into making this event for Baby D super special. And special it was! I couldn’t have asked for anything better! My cousin (and bridesmaid from my wedding), Jennifer, put together the games, one of which was “Price is Right” themed- FUN FACT:: in college I was on the The Price is Right. Yes, they called my name. Yes, I was the closest bidder and got on stage. Yes, it was back in the day when Bob Barker was still the host. No, I did not kiss him on the cheek (he was wearing more makeup than me and he was soooo oldddddddd…). No, I didn’t win a car. Yes, I spun the wheel. Yes, it was heavy. Anyway, the game was great, we had to price out baby swag and whoever got the closest to the actual price of everything won a bag of goodies! Cute idea, right?!? Thanks Jen! You’re awesome.
I really want to thank everyone (even those who couldn’t be there and were spoiling Baby D from afar) for making the shower so wonderful. It’s a whole new experience when so many people show so much love to your baby who isn’t even born yet. I cannot wait for each and every one of you to meet Baby in a few short weeks!
Please enjoy some of the pics from the shower, sorry some are a little blurry, they are from multiple cameras and phones…
