Early last week I was very luck to be able to spend a few days up at Universal Studios volunteering for Operation Shower. If you are not familiar with this fantastic organization, they travel the country and throw baby showers for military moms-to-be. They shower them with love and gifts and give them the most amazing memories. This was the largest shower they have thrown to date thanks to the generous support of Babies R Us and Heidi Klum. We spent one whole day on set up – crafting and decorating under the direction of Jenn from Hostess with the Mostess (sweetest, most talented party gal ever). And day two found us welcoming the moms and their guests and helping with whatever they needed.
I am so grateful that I could be apart of this amazing experience. Amy and the rest of the gals that work tirelessly to put on these events always do a remarkable job. These ladies are only able to do what they do because of donations. You may remember I mentioned Amazon Smile around the holidays. By selecting Operation Shower as your charity of choice, a percentage of your eligible purchases gets donated back to them. And it is super easy to set up. Just search and select “Operation Shower” (NOT Operation Shower of Appreciation – no idea what that is).
This shower was designed by Jenn with a fabulous dessert area created by the adorable Marie of Sweets Indeed. It was so much fun to get to spend some time with the other fantastic volunteers but I especially love watching the moms-to-be get spoiled.

I’m not sure who did the video but will update as soon as I find out.
