After living in San Diego for two years, Derek and I were blessed to not only live close to my parents, but to meet some amazing life long friends. After telling our families about the arrival of our sweet baby, I think the next few people I told were Mandy and Stephanie, the two sweet girls who put this adorable nautical inspired baby shower together. With the help of my Mom, they were able to plan and execute this darling shower while I was visiting San Diego in October. The delicious food and treats were compliment to the fantastic company and beautiful weather. We enjoyed lunch and company while sitting on my parents back patio, with a light breeze and sunny morning. It was such a wonderful day surrounded by so many whom I truly love, ranging from childhood friends, women who have known me from ten to twenty years, and the friends we made while in residency. It was more then I could've asked for, and am so grateful for all these sweet people in my life!

Early in October, my sweet in-laws offered to throw me a family baby shower in honor of Baby Boy Smith! It was absolutely darling, and had the cutest details ranging from nautical inspired rice krispe treats to a cute homemade cake! I was very spoiled and received so many cute outfits, shoes, and handmade blankets and burp rags. Another wonderful part of the weekend was that both my sister & brother were able to travel up from Logan, Utah and Rexburg, Idaho for the day! That night, my mother-in-law, Trina treated us all to a fun night at a local pumpkin farm and dinner. It was so fun to be back together with Rachel and Dallin, since we hadn't been since Dallin's return from his mission! It was a wonderful weekend, and I'm so grateful to all the people in my life who love me, and are even more excited to welcome our sweet little one into the world!
