Baby Rodrick's 1st Baby Shower

I had my first baby shower in Columbus on Saturday with a bunch of my friends and it turned out to be beyond anything I had ever expected.  Lynn, who is 35 weeks pregnant and who I hosted a shower for last month, hosted the shower along with help from a few other good friends and my mom. My friends definitely know me well and planned every last detail according to what I like (in terms of food & dessert) and what Baby Rodrick's nursery is going to look like (pink and gray).  I left the shower completely overwhelmed by how amazing all of our friends are and how many people already love our baby girl!
 
The details:
