This is the first baby shower I ever had, I didn’t get to have one with Harlow because my ex didn’t want me to. I had family and friends come and I made sure my best friends @whitleysims and @raeganhouser came over! Idk what I would do without them. When the party started to die down I took them upstairs and showed them a little preview of the babies nursery. I haven’t shown anyone else yet. I’m so happy house this day turned out! <3
PS. I already have my sis Raegan living in California, and I posted on my Instagram how now we need to convince Whit to get a 2nd home out here!! <3
