It’s our daughter’s first birthday party – (laughs) Well, not quite (Nik laughs) I feel good – Matt’s making some toast – How many do you want? – Two, please So I’m actually just about to hop in the shower, but I thought I would just say good morning and kind of show you guys a little sneak peek of last night’s festivities Wow, we had all the girls, all the familia here last night working so hard, honestly I’m always reminded I have the best family They just put up with me and my crazy ideas I just wanted like this perfect Pinterest baby shower and they honestly brought it to life So I’ll give you guys some sneak peeks Kind of looks like a crazy hot mess in here, but it’s all gonna come together Basically last night, my aunt and cousin came over, my mom, Cloe, my sister, and my other older sister, Pam And we just tackled like all of the more crafty, time-consuming stuff and things that can be prepped ahead And then today, we’re doing like all the food and stuff So I have my best friend Yvonne picking up some platters from Cured Catering which I’ll show you guys later They always do an amazing job, I feel like I have them at every event and they’re the best So we’re bringing all the food today, the cakes got dropped off yesterday I probably should maybe tell you guys like what this plan is because it’s a little bit unique, woo So it’s kind of a different setup than a normal baby shower We have two this weekend Because of obviously like circumstances, I wanted to split up the shower into two smaller groups So today’s Saturday and we’re doing family, my family, Matt’s family And then tomorrow we’re doing friends So we just thought that’d be the best way to split things up and it’s basically the majority of the party is actually going to be outside The limit just changed, basically in the last week from 15 people to 10 No wait, what was it before? It was 50 people inside Which I wouldn’t have had 50 people anyways But we had two small groups of 15 on both days and now we have to do, like basically do it outside So the limit now is 10 inside, 25 outside So we’re basically just having the party outside It’s gonna be so nice today, I think it’s 26 today, 28 tomorrow I love September It’s like you get hot days, you get cool days And we are still going to have like a lot of the food inside and we’ll just do like shifts coming in It’s a bit weird, but it’s what we gotta do and I’m just so grateful to be able to celebrate and have a party with my close friends and family And we’re all gonna be safe There’s sanitizers, there’s masks And like I said, the party is going to be outside and we’ll just have like food and stuff inside But we’ll do games and presents outside and I’m so excited to see everyone Like so many people coming haven’t even seen me pregnant at all just because of you know, ‘rona So very excited I’m gonna hop in the shower and start getting ready I have like a crudites table to put together today, I have a Caesar mix, we have to put out the food There’s still so much to do, but it’s all good My girlfriend’s coming, Cloe’s coming, and we’re basically going to show you guys how to make the ultimate boho floral baby shower. (laughs) By the way, I’m gonna have a full blog post on everything we did like DIY’s, printables, like all this stuff on the blog So check that link down below if you are planning a baby shower for somebody or for yourself I just feel like we found a lot of fun ideas and I want to share that with you guys in a full recap So, gonna hop in the shower, see you in a bit So this is my breakfast, I’ve been keeping it really simple Just spread a toast with peanut butter, honey, and chia seeds And this is a little sneak peek of what happened last night

My sister, I have to give you guys a close up, my older sister Pam is so talented I basically gave her a photo inspo from Pinterest and she created this This is a stick we found at this forest that we always walk through It was already like detached on the ground But it just looks so cute So we’re gonna have all the desserts on this These are boxes from the HealthNut shop that my aunt Kris wrapped in craft paper And then she actually laser printed these letters out of some scrapbook paper I think it looks so cool It’s just like a little floral, whimsical dream in here Then this table kind of looks like a mess, but we did a bunch of floral arrangements last night We have snacks and stuff that we’re gonna be putting out We have some games I printed out a bunch of cards for all the food So I’ll show you guys details once everything is prepped And then Matt has some of the Philips lights on the bottom, they’re really cool They have like a little hue glow But this is going to be the drinks station So I got rose, Caesar mix that I have to make today, this will be citrus infused water And we also have little sanitizer bottles all around and then that will be for ice and stuff Can’t wait to see it all come together (upbeat music) I love this stuff So Matt is taking Miss Cashew for a hike, get her energy out, cause if you are a dog owner, you know if you’re gonna have a bunch of people over, your dog needs to be tired So the plan is to have Cashew at the party, we’ll see If she’s acting too crazy, I might get my brother to pick her up But I think she’ll be okay, and I want her in like some photos and stuff so She’s pretty good with like my family, like large groups of people To be honest, she kinda sometimes gets overwhelmed and then goes to the basement and does her own thing So I think we’ll be fine I’m going to moisturize my belly with my blue belly oil I have a whole IGTV video on how exactly I make this This is amazing, also good for your face and your whole body but I’m gonna put it on my belly, so I’m gonna turn off the camera while I do that (upbeat music) Ow, just burned my ear We got the bestie here!
