I do believe we all had a blast.
The boys did what boys do and acted like Pirates – playing tailgate games, getting loud and one of our husbands who will remain nameless (but his name begins with a J and ends with an –oshua), may have shown the group some parts of his anatomy that he shouldn’t have during a boisterous game of flip-cup.

Michelle, Eric & Baby Wallace got some great presents ranging from Pirate onesies to a purple & gold diaper bag, and everybody ate tons of food.
I was super excited to cook a few of the recipes that I have pinned such as the football-shaped cocoa krispies and s'mores cookies.
Here is the rest of the menu:
Football-shaped Cocoa Krispie treats
Strawberries with fruit dip
“Throw-Up” dip (just Ro-Tel, cream cheese & sausage) with Tostitos
Rollo-Pretzel Bites (pretzel + melted Rollo + pecan = delish)
I also got to be a little crafty (as you already saw from my DIY posts about the tiered tray and wreath). I made tissue paper pom-poms (in purple & gold of course) and little cupcakes out of onesies and wash cloths which I found a tutorial on from Pinterest of course.

I also opted to do a "Wishes for Baby" clothes line instead of a sign-in book for the shower. Shower guests wrote down their wishes for baby Wallace on a card then pinned it to a ribbon. I didn't come up with the idea of the "wishes" myself, once again it was a Pinterest find. However, I did decide it would be cuter to hang them on a line all by myself :)

The boys - and some of the girls - got very creative with their wishes.
Here are some other pictures from the evening, make sure you check out Michelle's blog post too, her pics are way better than mine.
