California Baby Shower - Gender Reveal

I can't believe that I had a baby shower.  Me.  I did.  So weird.  I have always dreamed of having a baby shower, but never thought it would actually happen.  My best friend Jen, her mom Patty, and my mom threw me the BEST baby shower EVER!  Everything I have ever dreamed of.  No one (besides my immediate family) knew what the genders were.  We decided to copy Giuliana and Bill and reveal the genders at the baby shower!  :) 

{THE DECORATIONS}

Everyone that came in had to guess what they thought the babies were. 3 pink necklaces? 3 blue necklaces? Or a mix? 

The BEAUTIFUL cake my sister made the night before.

My brother Mitch spent hours printing out "It's Triplets" on paper and wrapping all the chocolates :)



Onesies from Jamie!  Super cute idea! 

{THE GUESTS}
Baba picked 2 blue necklaces and 1 pink!
Jamie & Olivia
Some of my best friends! 
Jen, Kayla, Kelsie & Colt, Kim, and Amber

Everyone was cheering afterwards!

Special surprise inside the cake :)

{THE GIFTS}
 Grandma and Grandpa Brown made the drive up to Hollister for the shower.
They spoiled the babies with tons of gifts! :)
My mom cleaning up already haha  :) She did an amazing job putting this all together! 
 Super cute bag filled with goodies! Lizette made it two hours before the shower! 
Another gift from my best friend Trisha! I'm definitely taking their 3 month pictures in these outfits! 
 My Aunt Judy and cousins wanted to buy outfits for the babies, but didn't know the genders prior, so she bought 3 girl gifts and 3 boy gifts - then took back the rest.  Haha...
My photographers. Stephanie...

 Laker onesies from Mitch & Jill  :)

 My niece Olivia.  She is SO excited to have 3 more cousins.  She said she was hoping for 2 girls and a boy but will settle for 1 girl.  :)  So cute! 
 Thank you Jen for the best shower!!  :)
 I will never be able to thank her enough.  She seriously is making all our dreams come true! LOVE HER! 
 Curtis came towards the end.  :)
The whole day felt so surreal.  I still can't believe this is really happening.
The day couldn't have been any better!!

It is still amazing to me that this is really happening! Am I allowed to say that I'm glad you didn't pursue adoption? Lol. Cutest baby shower ever!

Hi, my name is Melissa Johnson and I live in Orem. You don't know me but, I wanted to let you know that I purchased a photo album at the Provo DI last year, and because it was filled with a lot of nice pictures I wondered if you may want the pictures back? I know that I would greatly appreciate someone finding me if I had donated pictures on accident. The first picture in the album was a ticket with your maiden name so I just gave it a shot and looked you up to see if you might want the pictures back? I gifted the album but would love to get the pictures to you if you want them? I just wasn't sure if they had accidentally been donated? There are some fun pictures. They all appear to be from 2005. They include what looks like a Church activity with a Fit club, a Seven Peaks day, some sort of concert, Face painting at a carnival, BYU Games, A foot ball camp looking event, A Conference Center picture, and many other random pictures with friends. Please let me know if you would like me to get them to you. My email is melissaj1979@gmail.com and you are welcome to look me up on Facebook under Melissa Mortensen Johnson. Thanks.
