    We are only a few weeks out from our scheduled induction for the pups baby human. I keep meaning to share photos from our wonderful shower (which we called a Typhoon) and also our maternity shoot but between appointments, work, exhaustion and prepping for our newest pack member time has been just running away from me.

    So here is a start at least and I will try to update as I can.

    Our baby typhoon was jungle animal theme even down to the food. My mom made this hippo watermelon fruit spread.

    My sister made a veggie snake

    We had tons of food even though it was an appetizer not meal event. There was also a veggie and dip lion

    My best friend hosted and she ordered a ridiculously cute (and delicious) cake for us.

    She also got us a sloth pinata that was filled with mini booze bottles and candy.

    Everybody got super into the pinata breaking. This is my sister looking like an action star.

    And one of my very best friends taking out all her frustration on the sloth

    Thank you! It was an amazing shower. So much fun. We didn't even get through all the planned activities and games but lots of laughter and fun for everyone. We didn't do any of the traditional shower games because I'm not really into traditional. So we did the pinata which was awesome (our guests all appreciated it was filled with tiny bottles of booze), and we had a newly weds style game that was "newly parents" and there was a bonus round where the grandparents to be had to answer questions about us as babies which all ended up hilarious too, there was a stuffed animal scavenger hunt, a game where people had to guess based off pictures if it was a pregnant belly or a beer belly, and then we had a pregnancy themed pictionary game that got super competitive as well. And so much food and drinks. We had a mimosa bar and also a momosa bar (virgin version). We were suppose to do poker too but we never quite got around to that. Everyone had so much fun that we went way over when it was suppose to end. I had to call the doggy daycare our dogs were at and let them know we would be late picking them up.

    So much fun! So much planning and thought went into it. It turned out so amazing. I highly recommend having pinatas at all adult parties after this... of course filled with tiny bottles of booze. lol

    Ah, Sweety! This makes me smile to tears. It's fabulous...YOU ARE FABULOUS!!!

    I know you said you were so exhausted...So tired, BUT, this was Disney-esk level entertainment. I was 36 when I popped my pup and I dragged my ass(ets) to answer the door, let alone entertain (brilliantly.) YOU, MY DEAR, ARE AMAZING!!!!!!

    And the Pictures! I Am So Glad that You Did This For Yourself. It Is The Sweetest Time, but it soon gets lost in 3 am feedings and dirty diapers. Commemorating your belly, your joy, your mate...Your journey together...PRICELESS!

    YOU GO GIRL! Cyber Hugs and soon some champagne wishes
