Several weeks ago, Sizzle came up with this great idea to have an online baby shower for Shana and I helped her bring it to fruition by organizing the above bloggers to kindly send in a monetary donation to go towards a Target & a PF Chang's gift card for the Gorillabuns family and also to agree to dedicate a post in her honor today!
As the resident photographer in the bunch, I thought it would be fun if I documented what the shower might have been like...
First we gave Gorillabuns a lovely "Mom-To-Be" sash, so it was clear to everyone who the belle of the ball was. Doesn't she look cute?
Since Neil was the only guy there, we appointed him the resident DJ. He spun all of G-buns' favorites like: Foo Fighters, Snow Patrol, Modest Mouse and Death Cab.
We also had some refreshments, namely the Gorillabuns Signature drink... Watermelon Vodka and Red Bull. Let's just say that DutchBlitz, Alphamommy and Little Miss Mel hung around the punch bowl a little too long. WHOA.
Whoorl, Sizzle and Metalia serenaded us with a few tunes...
And of course we had to play some quintessential shower games.
Walking Punchline won the word challenge game by coming up with 55,212 baby names using just "Shana & Rich."
LVGurl came the closest in measuring Gbuns' belly.
I think it is safe to say that Carissa was a tad dubious about taste-testing chocolate poo.
The Baby Bottle Drinking Game was quite amusing as Kris naturally took the lead over Rhiannon. Next time we'll use room temperature milk instead of wine!
Let's not forget that I handmade these stellar party favors for everyone.
Oh, and Whiskeymarie brought the cake. It's probably a good thing she forgot it was a scheduled c-section!
And for fun, we generated photo samples of what their child might look like. Oddly enough, it was a boy every time! But we were all a little surprised with the outcome of the last one...
Well, at least they got the lips right! (HAHAHAHA)
But on a more serious note, I'm so happy that we were able to celebrate the soon-to-be Gorillabuns, the Third. I adore G-buns and hope that she feels the love, support and genuine care from many of her blogging friends. I can't wait to meet the little one, Shana! Take care my friend...
And a big thanks to everyone who helped make this possible... xoxo
