I hope my baby likes Chocolate

Last week some of the girls in the ward threw me a little baby shower. Thanks ladies! I had a great time! And our little Owen, Oliver, Miles...whoever he may be....certainly got his fill of chocolate that night. Doris was so cute and remembered a blog post a while back where I ranted on and on about how much I love chocolate, and decided that the food for the night would be all chocolate! Mmmmm.
There were rich chocolate brownies, amazing chocolate balls (compliments of Pam Thomas. Honestly, amazing), my favorite Chocolate Malted Crunch ice cream from Rite Aid (thanks Sarah for buying an extra carton for me to take home!), choc fudge sauce to go on top, chocolate candies all over the house, Moose Munch, and one non-choc item: cream puffs. They even had milk and water to wash it all down! Here I am hovering over my favorite table:
It was all super tasty. Well done! (I must admit, however, that even for a chocolate lover....it was slight overload. I actually went home and had some chips 'n salsa. The balance was great!)
Sara Morgan, who has the cutest craftiest skills, recovered these chocolate bars as party favors. They looked so professional and said "Dana's Baby Shower" and the date on the wrapper. Again, crafty lady. Cute stuff! And all the fun ladies that came brought the greatest gifts. Cute clothes, diapers, wipes, onesies, gift cards...everything we need! So a HUGE thank you to everyone for being so generous. My mother-in-law Linda was able to come also (sitting next to me in the picture below) and she couldn't believe how many young moms there were in our ward. I told her that this was only half of them! We sure have a fun group of moms to hang out with. I love it. And this little vintage tee from Karla Hunt is one of my favorites. It's adorable. Can't wait to dress our little boy in all this fun stuff!Thanks Doris, Sarah, Pam, Sara, and Laura Daines for throwing a fun party. I'm lucky to know such great people!

Congratulations, Dana. That looks like it was a great shower! I actually knew about it and would have tried to extend my California trip a couple days to attend---and yes... I would have... That's how desperate I am for social interaction---but it was Alexander's birthday, which we wanted to spend with the hubby / father / responsible party. It was great catching a glimpse of you at church!

By the way, have you had those Trader Joe chocolate truffles? I miss those so much.

I love the shower! What a great idea to do an all-chocolate night! And Happy Birthday! It must feel so great to no longer be a teenager! We need to go to Los Hermanos to celebrate!

That makes me hungry just looking at all those delicious pictures. Yum! What a great idea for a shower. I think I'm going to have to find someone to throw a shower for so we can have lots of chocolate!!
