My sister and her hubby are having a baby in less than 90 days
and i am beyond excited for them.
I always knew she would get pregnant around my wedding and she did!
God is definitely amazing in his own time!
As much as i am excited about the baby…
i am beyond disappointed that i don’t have any more vacation days
to visit until early next year.
Can you believe it???
Darn corporate America…
I used them all up for my thyroid surgery.
She lives in London, England.
Not only won’t i be there for my new niece or nephew’s birth
(they are keeping the gender a surprise),
i won’t be able to attend her baby shower:-(
Therefore, i wondered what i could do.
I saw on another blog,
(now i cannot remember which blog)
about throwing a virtual baby shower!
So i said to Mr. Pancakes, “do you think i should throw my sister a virtual shower?”
And of course he was supportive of my decision.
“Go ahead babe! Give your sister the best baby shower ever…virtually.”
So here i am throwing my sister a surprise virtual baby shower!
HAPPY BABY SHOWER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is the invitation: (ONLY a sample, not her real info!)
The Location: Somewhere nice and cozy with books
(my sister loves books and writing!)
The Decor: Simple, elegant and gender neutral!
When she entered, she would receive some flowers courtesy
of Mrs. Julius’ DIY flowers (they are made with baby items–awesome right?!)
There would be lots of friends and family: (from the U.S, Canada, Italy and London)
After meeting and greeting,
we would settle into cheesy but thoughtful games…
The Food and Drinks: I would totally use Raven’s ideas from her sister’s shower!
The Sweets: I loved Lauren’s (from Lucky Layman) cake
(which was also a reveal cake) so beautiful!
Other Sweets would include cupcakes:
The Gifts: would be many and plenty!
These are awesome …the monthly onesie!
And of course our lovely guests wouldn’t leave without getting a little something:
The fun: We would of course, eat, laugh & dance to Bryan Adams
and share our best wishes for the baby and the mom to be!
And of course i would share that: I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH!
We’ve come a long way as little girls playing house
and now we are married women
and you are about to have a little one of your own.
God continues to bless us individually and collectively and for this i am grateful.
I am so glad you are my sister
and i cannot wait for our little ones to play together
and build the bond we’ve had over the years.
We can go without speaking for weeks
and when we are together, it feels like we were never apart.
And as you begin this amazing journey into motherhood,
i wish you nothing but God’s grace and blessings!
Although we live miles and miles, countries apart,
i am here for you whenever you need me.
I know you will be a fantastic mummy!
The little one is definitely God’s gift to our family.
And i cannot wait to meet the little angel!
I hope you enjoyed your Surprise Virtual Baby Shower…
both Mr. Pancakes and i love you, the Mister and little angel to pieces!
And i am counting the days until i can be with you all!
