Baby Bump, Shower, and ... a WEDDING!

Okay, I am finally starting to really show so here is my latest baby bump! Here I am a week ago at 22 1/2 weeks (5 months).


I decided to throw my brother-in-law's fiance a surprise baby shower. I figured she probably wasn't expecting one is why I decided to do it a surprise. I wanted to do a totally themed out one, but I decided that my audience wouldn't really appreciate all the time I put into it (that is half the fun when you decorate... hearing the oohs & aahs!) so I just went simple & pink. Here is the table I decorated.
Here is the close up of the wontons I made. This was my first time making them. They were simple enough with my mini muffin pan, but definitely different! I don't think I've even tried a wonton before this, I was just looking for something pink for dessert!
Here's up close of one of the vases of flowers. It was really fun to be able to just pull them out of my flower garden!....and as a DOUBLE surprise Roger decided to crash the baby shower (since all the family was gathered anyway)... and get married right after it was over! I was sure glad I pulled weeds the day before so their marriage setting could be as pretty as possible!
Jessica's best friend that was at the shower ran to the store as soon as they announced that they were getting married in 30 minutes & got a cake for them so we made them do the traditional feeding even though they wanted to be ultra casual!
All I can say is WOW, didn't think I'd ever have a wedding in my backyard! Although I'm flattered they thought it worthy enough! I love my new sister-in-law, but I can already say we have to be opposites in the party department cuz I have to decorate to the 9's for any little thing, especially my wedding!!!

That is a cute picture of you. However, your baby bump looks small since I've been hanging out with my step daughter Amber who is having twins. The flowers in your yard looked beautiful for the parties.

I just posted a comment and it didn't show up. So, I'll write it again.
Your baby bump is tiny--you still look so skinny! Your baby shower treats look delish. That's pretty crazy to have a baby shower and wedding in one. I want to throw you a shower sometime, but I'm afraid you would be very disappointed in my decorating!

Your baby bump is cute! Enjoy the 2nd trimester while it lasts....I couldn't believe how big I kept getting and getting!

Wow, look at you Nancy, wedding and all. I can't believe what can happen in such a short time. You make a cute mother to be.

Hey guys
I have been meaning to say congrats on the baby. I was so excited when Calvin told me. Our boys will be close and will be great friends I am sure.

Don't worry Nancy you will be so cute when you get that 9 month baby belly. And yes you will feel huge even when people say that you are tiny. I sure do.

Hope to see you guys soon.
