I am a mom to amazing twin girls, a wife, and I work full time. I battled infertility for 2 years and over the course of treatments, a twin pregnancy, and raising twins I managed to gain about 80 lbs. I’ve lost about 50 lbs so far and would like to lose another 50 in my quest to become a hot mama.

Baby Shower #1

This past weekend was our first baby shower.  It was in Kansas...so we had to fly...and I was told 20 weeks was the cut off for twins.  So it was an early shower but that's o.k.

We had an amazing time.  Our good friends Bob and Ashley hosted the party at DH's parents house.  They really went above and beyond from the decorations to the gourmet cupcakes.  DH's parents had BBQ catered in.  A good friend who is a home brewer supplied a keg of home brew for all of the non-pregos and the men.  It was really a great gathering of all of DH's closest friends.

We received a TON of gifts.  I couldn't believe how much stuff we got!  Getting it all home was "fun" but worth it.

Here are some pics from the shower.

  8. those are such cute baby items! I just began my baby registry at myregistry.com and I'm not adding too many things to it yet since my due date is in December but I love the artwork in the 6th photo! Do you know where you got that from? I want to add it my wish list. Good luck with any upcoming baby planning! :)
