Crystal's Mom and sister threw an amazing book themed baby shower. Since I love Crystal and books I loved the party!
A book themed cake!
The cake table filled with candy, books, dolls and personalized water bottles.
I also made this one from us! Joey's idea of course. Charlotte representing good old pop punk rock.
Louie loved all the books. This kids loves books.
There were cute games. I even won the "baby info" game by knowing the most facts about babies.
Crystal attacked her giant pile of gifts. The host's asked that people bring along a book for Charlotte's library. They even provided cute sticker book plates where we could leave our name and a message. The girls chose a Llama Llama book for Charlie. They love them.
There was a bouncer (awesome!). Louie spent most of her time inside the bouncer.
Phi and Isaiah tried their hand at tennis, but spent most of the day zooming around the tennis courts on scooters.
So one of those "what a small world" stories. I went to UCSB with Irene back in 2001. I met Crystal about 5 years ago when she found my blog and emailed me. About a year ago Crystal did her internship at the non-profit organization that Irene works for. Of course both are my Facebook friends. Once day I noticed that Irene commented on something Crystal had posted. So an old (I'm not calling you old Irene!) college friend met a new friend and now we are all friends!
Speaking of friends. These 2 get along so great. They are becoming fast friends.
It was great to spend some time with Crystal and Irene. Both women who I totally admire and pull inspiration from. By surrounding myself with strong and intelligent women like this keeps me on my game!
Congratulations again Crystal!
We cannot wait to meet little Miss Charlie and I will keep my fingers crossed for lots of hair.
(But even if shes as bald as a cue ball she was be perfect and gorgeous!)
