Showered with LOVE

My nearest and dearest ladies (along with a couple of gents) recently gathered for my baby shower thrown by my wonderful girlfriends Catherine, Danielle, Embeth, Emese, Lauren, Michelle, Mimi, Robyn, Shannon, Stefanie and Tracy. Thank you so much. I couldn’t have felt more special and loved!! Shannon Rotenberg, thank you to the moon and back for hosting us at your amazing house. Alexis Sims, thank you for coming all that way. I couldn’t ask for a better sister-in-law. I was sad that my sweet parents were not able to make it due to the flu. We missed you Embeth and Alissa!

Did you know that they are now calling a shower for a second time mom a “sprinkle”? I had NEVER heard of that before! The weather tried to sprinkle, but we did not let a few drops of rain dampen our celebratory spirits.

This girl’s sprinkle was beyond lovely and no detail was overlooked thanks to my gorgeous (inside & out) friend and Managing Partner at Yifat Oren and Associates, Stefanie Cove. Thank you, Stefanie from the bottom of my heart for all of your hard work. Baby girl Stuber thanks you, too!

Here I'm with my college roommate and my best friend. I’m SO blessed to have amazing girlfriends. The stories these two ladies could tell!!

Spring was definitely in the air thanks to the vibrant flowers from Bloom and Plume. There were even balloons that spelled out “Baby Girl Stuber” from Geronimo Balloons. Talk about pops of color… More like fireworks of color!!

My girlies sipped on bubbles and some tasty (so I was told) themed cocktails. Vino, Mama will be back in the mix soon!!

The eats were supremely delish and I’m not just saying that because I’m a hungry pregnant lady! Truly yummy works of art from Whoa Nelly Catering. How pretty is the soup? It looks like a Monet painting.

Now if you thought my flower arrangements were special, check out this to die for naked cake from Annie Campbell. A marriage made in heaven… flowers AND cake together forever! #dessertNirvana

My gift to the girls was jewelry from Gorjana. I’ve worn my new bangle just about every day since the shower.

Now I’m not going to mention any names, but someone clearly went a bit overboard with the string game to guess how big my belly was… Joey Maalouf you are SO in trouble!!

I was super happy to receive the Nuna travel system as a gift. Baby girl Stuber is going to be cruising in style!!

One of my best parts of the shower was near the end when my two favorite boys in the entire world showed up. Could they be more handsome? I’m totally not biased at all.

Overall I had an absolutely magical day. I know my little girl in my belly felt all the love from all of my friends and family. Below are some of my favorite pics from the shower.
