On Saturday, I had the chance to bless my dear friend Jen Schultz with a "Mother Blessing Brunch" at our house. A small group of seven of us enjoyed a tea party brunch and some time encouraging Jen. What a great excuse to get out my Grandma Cora's china and to make the house girlie in honor of Jen's fourth girl - Samantha Quinn - coming in February.
The star of the show was this fabulous cake made by Jen's sister, Kim. The "baby bump cake" was in the signature pink and brown colors Jen loves and even featured polka-dotted lingerie and the prego mama's belly button!
I had fun catching up with some of the other Fresno Christian "coaches wives" like Chris Fuller. She was a fabulous help in the kitchen and even did dishes for this other prego mama.
Jen and I are two weeks apart on our due dates and it's been fun to walk this journey together of pregnancy and new beginnings for both our families as we move on from Fresno Christian and seek God for our futures. Baby Giada and baby Sam will be good friends!
