Saturday afternoon, I drove over to South Carolina* to celebrate Jen and her baby boy! After following her story and becoming real-life friends once I moved to Charlotte, I was more than excited to be celebrating her little babe. The baby shower was hosted by Caitlin, who threw an “IronBaby” themed shower, which was perfect since Jen is a triathlete and a runner. I provided some orzo salad with arugula, cherries and toasted almonds and nibbled on good food and chocolate goodies. We also wrote little messages all over some newborn-sized diapers for those late nights when Jen needs a little laugh, such a cute idea! It was a wonderful way to spend an afternoon and I’m so happy I was able to celebrate with her. Jen is such a great friend and so sweet, I just know she will make such a wonderful mother. Yay for baby boy!
*I like to make driving to South Carolina sound super dramatic, but I live really close to SC. I’m from SOUTH Florida. As in, just a few hours from the southernmost tip of the country, South Florida. It may sound silly, but it blows my mind that I can be in another state in under thirty minutes. It’s a constant joke between me and Adam.
