Weekend Recap Part II - Melissa's Shower

I was soooo excited to have the opportunity to co-host (with my mom and sister) a baby shower for my cousin's wife Melissa. They are due in May 6th.. and I cannot wait to meet Addison Riley. I absolutely love Melissa, I have actually known Melissa forever, we went to the same babysitter when we were growing up, and I couldn't be happier to now have her in our family - and I just know that she will be an AMAZING mom!!!

Her nursery is done in the Brooke pattern from Pottery Barn and here is one of her owls - she was so excited to get this!
i bet ya'll will be shocked to know that i got her a set of BBblocks and made her a pillowcase dress (and yes I know that I haven't posted how to make one of the dresses yet - i will sometime this week!)

the oreo pop favors (which I called a labor of love... I will have another post on how I made these)
I can't wait to meet Addison, she will be a well loved baby!
