Welcome to my blog Viewing My World! I have another blog A La Carte where I share my love of thrifting, tablescapes and other aspects of my life. This blog is to share my love of photography! I hope by starting this blog I will take more photos. Come along with me as I view my world through the lens of my camera.

This past Friday night there was a baby shower for Sara & Blake  It was a couples shower with their friends in Athens, GA where they live.  It was so much fun!  My daughter Ashleigh and I drove over together from Atlanta.  They had a Taco pot luck since Sara has been craving tacos during her pregnancy!  Here are some photos of the event.  They were taken with my little power shot and most were taken by others at the shower so they aren't as crisp as I would like.  I have done some photo editing since there was lots of red eye!

See that cute baby bump!

So much to add to your taco's

Vintage Pyrex...love these gals

Lots of gifts

Octopus Onsie! 

Ashleigh gave Sara a stroller
the real thing was delivered to their house

Blake and Sara will be the best parents
Their smiles light up the room

Their friends were very generous and they received many things off their registry and some wonderful creative handmade items

I can't wait for Tiger to get here! 

Viewing My World,



  1. Those came out great, Linda...I had to laugh at all the vintage Pyrex!
    Your daughters are beautiful. I am sure you will be the best Grandma, too!

  2. Great shower!!! Everyone looks so happy...I know ya'll can't wait for Tiger to get here. Love the vintage Pyrex...couldn't miss that!!!

  3. Okay so my answer is the shower was last Friday - I am all goofed up!

    Any way your daughter couldn't look any happier - she has the biggest smile on her face ever.

    You other daughter and SIL - happy too.

    You are a blessed mother.


  4. first, i must comment on your haircut-super cute. second, i spotted that pyrex-thought you brought it with you. i like couples shower, especially for baby. those pillows are perfect! looks like such a great day!

  5. I didn't know you had this blog too! You're amazing. I'm not one for baby showers and do everything I can to avoid them these days. Bridal showers too. I guess I'm the female equivalent of a "curmugeon" huh? Thats great how they used all the Pyrex--now THAT gets me excited!

  6. Oh, Linda, they look soooo happy. I'm happy for them. The arrival of a little one is one of life's greatest gifts. Congratulations, Grammie. Thanks for sharing. Susan

  7. Linda, it looks like it was a fun shower! And Sara got some great stuff. yup, I am way behind. I haven't got to Target yet. got sick this past weekend. But, I very soon...Promise! LOL And I cracked up when I saw all the vintage pyrex!

  8. How fun! Will this be your first grandchild? Such a happy time!

  9. What a lovely shower. I like how it was co-ed. ;-)
    Lots of happy faces. I'm so excited for you all. Nothing more wonderful then a new baby in the family.


  10. Linda, not only do you have a beautiful mother but you have beautiful daughters and SIL too! Aren't families grand??
