Baby Shower!!

Some dear ladies in my life had a baby shower for me on Saturday in Wisconsin! My wonderful friends Angela and Greta, Greta's mom Peggy, and my Mom were the lovely hostesses. The shower was a SURPRISE for Angela who has a little one due in October. She had no idea that we planned to celebrate her that day, too!

Ang, Grets, Rach

Ang, Grets, and I have been best friends through elementary school, high school, college and now. I love these two ladies so very much.
