The STL baby shower was a friggin’ blast! The final count for our co-ed gathering was a whopping 70, and we partied hardy. There were games, drinks, FOOD, family, friends, and lots of fun 🙂 We received tons of beautiful gifts for baby and lots of well wishes and blessings. With 6 pairs of shoes three months before she’s due, this little diva is already spoiled! Below are some of the highlights:
Aunty rocking a TnC… she lost her clothes pin (because she said ‘Baby’), and had to hold the box!
The MAN games!
A few of the guys opted out of this one, in fear that they’d leave the party expecting!
‘Guess That Poo’ game. The ladies had to guess the contents of dirty diapers by the look and smell of the squished up candy bars inside. It was truly a sight to behold, lol.
Look at all the natural heads!
One of my favorite uncles (my daddy’s bro). We went to his house the next morning for brunch. I was on Day 3 Hair!

We’re dressed and on the way out the door for my Baby Shower! I’m so excited and wanted to share a few pics with you guys before everything pops off! Plus, although my sister and mother wear their hair straight, they too are all natural!
My Hair: A 2 day old Twist-n-Curl with Yes to Cucumbers and Aveda’s Defining Whip
Mom’s Hair: Her beautician blew it out with a round brush after washing, conditioning, and deep conditioning. To preserve her curls at night, she pins it all up on the top of her head and ties a silk scarf around it. She sees Marie at Shi Salon in St. Louis, MO. My mom went gray at 25 and completely embraced it. I’ve got many gray hairs (don’t tell her, lol), but they’re auburn now because of the henna!
Sylvia- She also goes to Marie at Shi Salon. She had her hair flat ironed 3 weeks ago, and I pulled it into a loose, floppy bun using a goody scrunchy.
Alrighty ladies, we’re off! I’m off to eat grilled hot dogs (finally!!!!!), and open gifts for baby. I’ll check back in later.
I've been out of the loop for a few months and come back to find CN and baby! I love it!!!
I'm so happy for you.

I love the new logo, it's adorable!
OMG!! You and your sister look so much alike!! You all have beautiful hair. By the way, my mom started going gray in high school and was completely gray in her 20's she colored it for a while but finally let her grey show about 10 years ago and it is completely white! She gets so many young men hitting on her now!
Love your new logo and I love your mothers hair. I look forward to having a head full of beautiful grey hair. It's shiny and gorgeous.
Looks like you guys had lots of fun & gifts 😀 I'm in St. Louis right now and heard about Shi salon when they were on a show on the style network (the one where stylists trade places at salons…the name slips my mind at the moment). But I def need to give 'em a try.
P.S. I love the new logo
love your new header and slogan.
Awww..great pics! Looks like yall had a great time! COngrats again! Luv the preggers CN logo on the home page.NICE! LOoks just like u!~tsa919~
What a creative energy filled baby shower! My goodness, I had more fun looking at the pictures (and the description of the games lol) of your baby shower than actually being at some of the yawn fest baby showers I've attended.
You and your husband are very blessed!!!
btw the poo game (threw me off a bit…thank goodness y'all weren't dealing w/ real poop) is so unique LMBO!!!

Looks like it was so much fun =) Beautiful family! You looked fab as usual!
Thank for sharing the pictures from your shower. Looks like you got some great gifts and had a lot of fun. I love your mom's beautiful head of hair. You look great! Keep the baby updates coming 🙂
If i ever get pregnant i hope i would stay as stylish as you, you look fabulous and your moms hair is beautiful.
I'm Glad You Had So Much Fun!
Looks like you all had a blast at the baby shower. Pin the sperm on the egg sounds hilarious. Lovely pics of your family– and you looked too cute with your baby bump. Wow, since you look wonderful, you should consider a pregnancy blog on how to stay toned and fit during the 9 months.
You are all so pretty! Congrats on my baby shower I know you had a lot of fun:)
Your mom's hair is so beautiful! I love it! I'm from STL but live in Texas and I went to Shi Salon for my wedding and Tiffany did a wonderful job.
Beautiful hair!!! I must say your sister's hair reminds me of mine when I straighten mine
Adorable! Also I was wondering; are you going to continue blogging after you have your baby. I'm a mom myself so I understand the time commitment of parenting might leave less time to blogging. No matter what I hope you keep the forum going 🙂
+1 for LBell's comment. Your mom's hair is stunning.
Yes, your mom's hair color is just gorgeous. I mean I'm 27 and looking forward to going grey one day because of it! You should definitely do an interview on her hair, simply for the color alone, if nothing else!
Beautiful Pics, Loving The Baby Bump!
I loooove your mom's hair color.
You all look lovely!
I apologize for this coming sort of out of left field but I HAVE to know what your mother does to keep her hair so bright and silvery. I'm assuming that's her natural color…but even if it's not I'd love to hear her tips. Could I persuade you to do a post on your mom's hair if you haven't already?
You look beautiful, Nikki, and so does your family. I'm sure you all had a great time!
Okay your sister is like a little you and when I go gray I want to look just like your mom's color beautiful and look at you and your little tiny bump, you should be modeling and making everyone jealous.
i love that top from Ann Taylor Loft. You look so cute pregnant.
your little sister is GORRRRGEOUS !
your mother is beautiful and her grey hair is amazing 🙂
You all look great! I love your flats! And Mom's hair color is amazing!
You all have gorgeous hair.
Peace, Love and Chocolate
Your family is beautiful!!!! Your mom is FIERCE and your sis is adorable; you two look just alike! I love your pics. You are one stunning mom (I say mom cause once you're preggo, you're a mom 4 sure). You look great H2T (Tyra line lol)! BTW, happy belated mother's day! I saw some t-shirts on the MoNique show called Spicy Wifey, gurl u would look great in those too, baby bump and all (I recently saw some mom shirts like "My Wife's a Hot Mom" somewhere online for husbands and some other mom stuff).
Anywho…Oh yeah, and ur hair is ON POINT! =)
Have an awesome baby shower!!! And scoff down a hot dog for me since I don't eat meat!!! lol
awww you and family are so cute!
wow! I love LOVE your mom's gray hair.
OMG!!! You and your sis look so much alike!!!
Your mom looks awesome too! Adorable!
I hope your shower is in full swing and eat as many hot dogs as makes your heart content!
Congratulations!!! You look great. Enjoy!
Lovely pictures. Your mom's hair is gorgeous!
Mmmm – barbeque… Girl, you're making me miss the STL! God willing I'll be able to visit this August for my HS reunion.
Have a wonderful shower!
Wow! Both have amazing hair, I would like to have my natural hair blown out. My only worry is losing alot of hair as result of all the heat(stress).Looks like Marie has done a good job of keeping their manes healthy while straightening.I may have to check her out on my next visit home…Thanks Nikki!
You ladies look too cute. Enjoy and post pics of the gifts.
