Center of Attention

I find it awkward when I'm the center of attention.  You know like when it's your shower and 30something people are watching you open gifts?  I never know what to do or say or wear.

I go through my closet and think...what would I want to look at the whole time someone else is opening gifts?  Or what do I want people to see when I am sitting there opening all of the generous gifts?  At least with babies, everyone is genuinely interested in what you are receiving and most of them have an opinion or story that goes along with it.  

I welcome those stories and opinions; obviously they have more experience than me at this point!

Obviously comfort is key when you're 8 months pregnant and when North Carolina unexpectedly turns a tad chilly and your shower is at 10 a.m. warmth is priority, too.

At this point, sitting for long periods of time isn't comfortable.  Neither is standing for that matter.  So wearing something that feels like pajamas and looks like fashion was right up my alley.  Luckily, maternity clothes have a way of doing that.

I must add the shower was beautiful.  It was thrown by my mother inlaw and many of my husbands friends and family attended.  I am always blown away by people's generosity and we were blessed with so many beautiful things for baby.  I can't wait to share them all when we reveal the nursery.

Blazer: Belk (love this one), Top: thrifted, Leggings: Old Navy, Boots: Jessica Simpson

  1. You are looking great! I'm glad that the shower went well. I am not enjoying this cold NC weather. Oh and don't worry...very soon you will no longer be the center of attention.

  3. I just had my shower this weekend as well and I told my husband the same exact thing - how it's hard for me to be the center of attention with all eyes staring at me opening presents. I told him it's like Christmas where people take turns opening gifts and everyone watching only severely upgraded cause it's 30+ people! I'm always afraid my reactions won't be "good enough" and I'll hurt people's feelings. I hope your shower went well. It's a bit overwhelming isn't it?!
