Our family is very blessed; we actually had a total of 4 baby showers! One was in Idaho while I FaceTimed in, but it felt just as special as every shower here with my new family, my coworkers, and our church. Two of the showers were a big surprise, but I did get to plan one! The only theme that got my swollen feet all tingly was a book themed party… for the mere reason that I LOVE to read! If you’re looking for a gender neutral and easy on the wallet shower idea, try this book theme!

I got all my books from Amazon and a nice large shipment from my mom who kept ALL our old childhood books. What was perfect about this theme, was the fact that all the “decor” could be used for Pia; she had a library of books before she was even born.

We only played one game before it turned into a wild Jamaican dance party in the backyard, but Matthew guessed the EXACT measurement of my belly. Talk about baby daddy of the year!
