Showering the Future Mrs. Katie Baker

One of my sweet college roommates, Katie, is getting married on July 3rd. Yay! I'm so excited for our her!!! Katie is a precious, precious girl. She means so much to me...

Katie met her match (Wes) in the summer of 2008. I remember her talking about him, and I could instantly tell that she was smitten. Our strong-as-a-rock Katie turned into an ooey gooey mess when she talked about him. It was the cutest thing! As soon as I met Wes, I knew they were a perfect pair. So, I was thrilled in January when I received the news that he had proposed. A few weeks later, Katie called to ask if Clayton would be their Ring Bearer. Yes, of course! We are so excited about their upcoming nuptials!

As a sidenote, Katie is a kindergarten teacher and her new name will be Katie Baker. How cute is that?!?! Wouldn't you be pleased as punch if your child's kinder teacher was named Katie Baker? I know I would. That just sounds like the sweetest teacher name. I love it!

This past Saturday, we threw a wedding shower for our favorite bride-to-be. It was so fun to throw a party for Katie! The hostesses were the 5 of us who all lived with her at 2521 Ashford in college as well as her current roommates. Roommates past & present - good times!

As an added bonus, I got to meet Cindy's new baby! I have been dying to get my hands on Sweet Baby Drew for 3 months now. I finally got my chance! He is adorable and made me wish that I lived close enough to pop over for a snuggle whenever I wanted. :)
It was a fun weekend celebrating my dear friend. I'm so excited about Katie & Wes' wedding and all of the festivities leading up to it. It's going to be a fun-filled few months!
