Last weekend I flew to Denver (slash Louisville, slash Boulder!) for my bff Megan‘s baby shower. (I shot her maternity session earlier this month.) I had SO much fun! I hadn’t been to Colorado before, so it was exciting to get to explore a new place. When I got into town on Friday, Megan and I Tokyo Joe’d for lunch and then dealt with the minor catastrophe of a flooded apartment, as their toilet had overflowed while we were gone. Boo! Later on, Megan and Brandon’s longtime friends Sam and Quimby came over for dinner. They live in Las Vegas, and they are SO much fun. We had so many good conversations about books and politics and our cities and, yes, FONT. Major geek-out session, let me tell ya! Mike and Jenn got in later that evening, and pretty soon after that we tucked in for the night because a busy, busy Saturday was ahead!
The next morning, we headed to Megan’s parents’ house for the shower. The boys headed off to do manly things like hike and compare Megan’s dad to Chuck Norris, and we waited for the rest of the ladies to arrive to start the party. There was quite a turnout, and I gotta say, for someone who hasn’t even entered the world yet, Jameson sure did score a lot of loot! I especially loved all the handmade goods… the blankets, the quilts, the knitted booties and outfits, the diaper bag Jenn’s mom made… and of course all of the wonderful Etsy stuff! The nursery theme is “vintage cowboy,” and you know how it is with me and vintage ANYTHING, so I was drooooling all over everything. So cute! Thank you so much Mrs. Lackey and Kimberly for all your hard work to pull off such a great shower, and thanks Caitlyn for the adorable cupcakes. It was such a beautiful day all around.
Love some detail shots… Daisies and strawberries and Izzies… could there be any more summery combination?
Oh yeah, I’m definitely still on a balloon kick. Love these!
This is the Lackeys’ dog Coco. Oh my goodness, is he not the cutest thing you’ve ever seen?
Yay family! (Brandon’s grandmother is so precious, by the way.)
The many faces of Megan June. :)
All of Megan’s sisters and girl cousins! Wow, they look SO much alike. Pretty girls.
And Megan and her mama…. who could pass for another sister! :)
I think Jenn, Megan, and I pretty much cover the hair color spectrum here. Yay Tennessee friends…. who have since moved to Phoenix, Boulder, and Salt Lake City. East coast to west coast… we’re pretty much jet-setters. Not gonna lie.
And Megan with her beautiful friend Sam… look at those green eyes! Man!
And I GUESS the guys can have their own shot…. Still bummed Jamie didn’t get to be there to hang out with Brandon and Mike and meet Quimby! Ah, well. Maybe next time…
So that’s that! Fun weekend…. the last hurrah before little Jameson turns the world upside down! But boy, I can’t WAIT to meet him!
Oh, and I almost forgot:
