This past weekend I was lucky enough to host a baby "sprinkle" for my sister and her baby boy to be. Apparently after having a child or two it is no longer a shower but rather a sprinkle - yet I am highly confused because when it came to the gifts it was like a freaking downpour. It turns out that a lot of people love my sister [she's got so many more IRL (that's "in real life" mom and dad) followers than I do, not that I'm keeping track or anything but really] so when her childhood best friend suggested we do something nice for my sister I was all "of course! It will be like NBD right because what it's like 5 people you invite and you have a couple of snacks and easy peasy!"
30 women later and a brunch consisting of egg souffle, sausage hashbrown casserole, coffee cake, cocktail wieners, fruit, cheese, cookies, yogurt, other pastries, mimosas and Bellinis, punch and the list goes on - it was a big ole fashioned party.
Don't be fooled, I totally hired those cookies out. Mine would have all had little boy parts on them or something, bakeries are so much more mature and fancy than I am thankfully.
side note: these new Snickers Crisper things are amazing and I can't stop eating them
Being that this baby is a boy and all, I went with navy and gray for decor purposes and then quickly realized it was looking more like a spaceship party than anything else but whatcha gonna do ya know? My "Oh Baby" balloons unfortunately arrived an hour after the party ended so that was fun. Apparently that whole "planning in advance" thing isn't for me.
Regardless of the decorations or lack thereof, it was an awesome couple of hours sprinkling my sister with love. Watching her as a mother already to her two adoring daughters is so much fun, I can't wait to see what this little boy will bring to the mix. Probably a lot of pee all over the place, you're right.

Sis, if you couldn't tell already - you are so beyond loved. Now, who else is ready to have a baby? I've still got chilled champagne ready to pour - bring it on babies.
