I've mentioned a few months ago that I was busy making invitations for my sister's event. Those invites were actually for her baby shower! Yessss, you read that right. My sister isn't fat, she's PREGNANT guys!!!!!!!!

In just a couple of weeks, I'm going to be an AUNTIE!!!! I've been waiting for this announcement from her for so long. I even talked about it in a blog post four years ago about how much I wanted Ryan and her to give me a niece. I don't think my heart will be able to handle all of this cuteness!!!

I was so ecstatic when my sister told me that I could plan her baby shower for her! At the same time, I had no idea where to even start. Since I've never planned such a thing before, I had to call in a crew to help me out! I enlisted her hubby, Ryan, and two good friends, Ellie and Diana.

It took us two months to pull it all together, but it was so worth it to see my sister go speechless when she entered the room!

I made a small request on the invites and asked everyone to bring in a new (or well-loved) book, instead of a card, for the baby. With over 80 guests in attendance, the turnout was unbelievable!

I wish I had gotten more photos of the decor and people mingling and eating, but I got busy with hosting the games and making sure everyone was entertained. 😅

Speaking of games, I really wanted to include ones that everyone could play! I threw in the classics, like the Baby Bottle Drinking Race, Bingo, Guess the Number of Candies in the Baby Bottle, Guess the Size of the Mommy's Tummy and the Blindfolded Diaper Challenge!

I also introduced a new game, that I found through Pinterest, called, Tinkle in a Pot! People had to stuff a balloon under their shirt and squeeze a ping pong ball between their legs. The goal of the game was to wobble to a jar and be the first person to drop a ping pong ball in. The winner of the game discovered a loophole and jumped, instead of walked, to the finish line. We were all speechless!!! Like what the hell bruhhhhhh. 😂

I also wanted to have prizes that worked for all ages, so I knew gift cards were the way to go!

Since I couldn't participate in any of them, I encouraged Daniel to play and to try to win a three month Netflix subscription, an Uber ride and/or a Cineplex pass for me. I mean, us. The only thing this boy can win is my heart, but other than that, he won nuttin!!!!! GRRRrr!!

Besides bringing a book, I had also asked everyone to decorate wooden blocks, so that the baby could have her own alphabet set!

Although I didn't get to capture that many candid moments during the event, I made sure I took photos of people posing with my sister in front of the backdrop! The venue had beautiful large windows, which made it the perfect set-up for the photoshoot. Everyone was literally glowing!!! 😍

My sister bought these adorable succulents as favours for everyone. I was so tempted to take at least five of them with me, until my sister surprised me with my very own terrarium!!!!! If you've followed my blog for many years now, you would probably remember how I killed my cactus. You can rest assured that I have learned my lesson and won't be overwatering it again! 😄

I want to thank Ellie, Diana and Ryan for all of their help in planning this whole thing! I also want to acknowledge and thank my sister's friends who came in early to help us set up and my cousin, Linda, for supplying me with dolls for one of the games! This whole thing wouldn't have been successful without you guys!!!

It still feels so unreal to know that our family will be expanding. I really don't think you guys are ready for all of the blog posts featuring this kid! Just one more month to go!!!!!!! ✨
