Weekend Recap: Baby Shower Edition

 Fall is in full effect and I'm loving all of the beautiful leaves. This tree is one of my favorites in the neighborhood! It's been nice that walks with Townes are perfect for light jackets (although it's going to get cold fast and I am dreading it). Oddly though, Townes has gotten to where he doesn't want to walk at night (even around 6 PM). It's really bizarre since normally he'll take as many walks as he can. Hopefully nothing is wrong with him, but I'll probably take him to the vet soon to have him checked out just in case.

This weekend was mostly filled with cleaning around the house and running errands in preparation for a couple's baby shower that we were throwing for our best friends on Sunday.

Friday night, after a run to Party City, we ate dinner at Mellow Mushroom. Their pizza is always my favorite!

On Saturday, we took Townes on a really long walk and ended up on the train tracks. The colors were awesome! 
 We spent the rest of the day cleaning, organizing, working in the yard, and prepping the food and decorations. We ended the night with an insane HBO documentary called The Cheshire Murders - creepy!

On Sunday morning, J had to go to his cousin's wedding (I hated to not be there) so I started setting up for the event before Anna (the mommy-to-be), her parents, and Grandmother arrive.
 We lucked out and got nice, sunny weather so outside of the food and hot apple cider, everything else was outside and we ended up having plenty of seating too! Our neighbor let us borrow the 8 foot table and she also randomly had that stork cardboard cutout! :)

 We had a HUGE food selection: cheese plate, veggies + dip, fruit salad (with a baby inside made by the talented daddy-to-be), acorn doughnut holes, petit fours, brownies cheese enchiladas, and potatoes and carrots. 

We ended up playing only 2 games: the pin game and string game. Everyone seemed to love both games and there were some tough competitors!

 Isn't Anna the cutest? I'm not sure what I'm looking at in the below photo - oops! 
We all can't wait to meet baby Jake! 
 Victor + J had a little too much fun with the fake cigarette and pregnant belly photo props! 

After everyone left, we cleaned up and enjoyed the last bit of the fire before I passed out early.
One shower down, and one to go! 
Next weekend is our best friends', Beth and Doug, wedding shower and then I'm on a shower-throwing hiatus for a while!
