baby shower

abbey's shower was so much fun. you might remember the shower invites from this post. the shower turned into a weekend celebration since mary came up for a few days. friday morning i spontaneously took the day off and me, abbey & mary hit up all our favorite thrift shops. we had so much fun throughout the day.
starbucks, thrifting....and of course, doumars!
it. was. delish.

for the brunch we decided to do sandwiches: homemade sourdough bread with fried eggs, bacon, lettuce, sprouts, tomoto and cheeses
a little ambrosia salad on the side
we also had fig preserves and strawberry jam
oh, and of course an amazing clafoutis dessert plus a peach praline pie.
my mouth is watering looking at all these pictures....

the sweetest lady around, patty burtch, allowed us to crash her home bright and early and use all her gorgeous china and silver.
thank you...and love you, aunt patty!

i had never been to or thrown a small intimate shower as such. but it really turned out nice and was refreshing to sit and chat with our closest friends and family.
enjoy the photos!
