Brittany's Onesie Shower!

One of my new Etsy friends, Jennifer, hosted the most adorable shower for her friend Brittany!
She wrote me a little while back about having the Onesie Party at her shower 
and it sounds like these ladies had a blast with it! 

I have asked her to share a bit about the shower with us and here it is...  

After a very long journey, my dear friend Brittany received an answer to prayer that she and her husband would finally be adopting a baby boy! Immediately, I wanted to throw her a baby shower to celebrate the wonderful and joyous news and to shower this mom-to-be with love! 

Brittany loves everything "Chevron" so the shower theme was easily chosen. 
I decided on a gray chevron pattern as it reflects the design of the nursery. 

And since they are adopting a baby boy, 
I added a few pops of blue throughout as well.  

After a formal lunch, the mom-to-be opened presents, and then all the 
guests created homemade onesies for Brittany to take home with her. 

Creating the onesies was such a fun alternative to playing shower games, 
and all the guests loved it!

 I received so many complements from the guests about how much they enjoyed making the onesies. 
Thank you Sarah for such a wonderful idea and materials! 

     Brittany and I are both military spouses, and sadly she and her husband had just recently moved on to another Army assignment. It was very special to have her back with us in Tennessee, surrounded by friends that have supported and traveled on this incredible journey with her. 

It was an amazing day, and I know she will forever treasure this day in her heart!

Well, that sure went by FAST! 
I can't believe it's already been one year since we 
got hitched in Aggieland!!

We heard so many mixed opinions about how our first year of marriage would be. 
"The first year is the hardest" was the most common one we heard. 

Well thank the Lord, that was not true! 
We have been blessed beyond belief this year and love each other more than ever. 

"We love because He first loved us." 1 John 4:19

Here is our stop-motion video to recap our Best Day Ever, one year ago. :)
