Baby Shower Pics

By January 27th, 202150 Comments

Hola Chicas,

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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!

The ‘apple juice’ chugging competition…

‘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.

Hola Chicas!

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

Baby Bump!

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.

    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!

  • Sdot says:

    Looks like you guys had lots of fun & gifts ๐Ÿ˜€ 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

    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!!!

    I'm Glad You Had So Much Fun!

  • caracara says:

    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.

  • Miss Dior says:

    You are all so pretty! Congrats on my baby shower I know you had a lot of fun:)

  • Passion says:

    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.

  • Anonymous says:

    Beautiful hair!!! I must say your sister's hair reminds me of mine when I straighten mine

  • Anonymous says:

    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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Unknown says:

    +1 for LBell's comment. Your mom's hair is stunning.

  • angelarose says:

    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!

  • beautywithcurls says:

    Beautiful Pics, Loving The Baby Bump!

  • Anonymous says:

    I loooove your mom's hair color.

  • LBell says:

    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?

  • KeetaRay says:

    You look beautiful, Nikki, and so does your family. I'm sure you all had a great time!

  • Notthecoolmom says:

    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.

  • Anonymous says:

    i love that top from Ann Taylor Loft. You look so cute pregnant.

  • Anonymous says:

  • momo7 says:

    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! =)

  • Sweetlady says:

    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!
