Yesterday we showered my future sister in law, Tabitha, and baby Wyatt at my parents house in Bell Buckle, TN. Everything was so beautiful and the turn out was even more than expected - given the recent weather in Middle TN.
This woman right here put it all together. That's my momma, can't you tell? This is her, in her natural form after hosting a successful baby shower. I was really upset with mom right before the shower because she was doing it all on her own. I didn't realize how upset I would be not helping till, well... I didn't. She did it all because she thought I was "too busy". Remember in my last post how my friend Jo Anna said "busy can be negative" ? Well, there it is in it's prime. I wasn't too busy - and I really hate she thought that. But sometimes the attitude I give her is a so strong, really it's too strong and in this moment, mom did something she had never done before. She walked away from me and did the damn thing (Go mom, even if I was sad)!
How beautiful is that above?! I was so afraid the party wouldn't look pinterest'esq. Not because mom isn't capable, but because I'm a control freak and I knew where everything was that she would need. She didn't need me, but I did make the pretzels, they were a hit :-P
And then there's this beut....
My dad made that cake stand! He is so much more gifted than he gives himself credit for. This is the second cake stand he made... The first one would make an amazing wedding cake stand. Cake&Cupcakes by Publix!
All in all, Mom turned it out. I think she even surprised herself, she definitively surprised me. ( I think you did amazing, momma!) Everything was beautiful, everyone showed up, Tabitha was given love and baby Wyatt is all set with all things baby. I still can't believe I'm gonna be an aunt!... My baby brother is having a baby... when it hits me I'll let you know.
Thanks so everyone who came out yesterday and thank you to my momma who loves me and chooses to like me in adulthood. I wouldn't trade your for the world. <3
