Blogger Power!

(image from House of Smith's)
Today was the big day for our blogger group, Service Soapbox.
We're a group of bloggers (duh!) who want to make the world a better place.
Today was our first official event. A baby shower to benefit the March of Dimes.
One of the things The March of Dimes does is help struggling new moms with diapers and other necessities.

Check out all the loot we brought in for them!
(These pictures are also from House of Smith's. Shelley takes better photos than me.)

Just like a REAL baby shower, we had some amazing food and decorations.
This cake was make and donated by Amber from Amberlicious Cakes.

Are you drooling yet?

The decorations were equally impressive.
Shelley from House of Smith's brought her amazing Rose Forms. Have I mentioned Shelley is my BBFF (blogger best friend forever)? LOL!
Seriously though, her blog is amazing.
These flower arrangements were also donated by Karlie from Garden House Floral. She is way talented.
My friend Ashley was my "plus one". She's such a trooper. Ashley doesn't even have an active blog but was still happy to come with me.
Someday you should ask me what we did after the shower with silicone breast implants.

Ashley eating a delicious cupcake. We were on a sugar high for hours!
Did I mention KSL showed up to do a story (for Studio 5)?
I wonder who told them about the event...? LOL.
Brooke Walker was there in the flesh, but I forgot to get a picture with her. (But it's not like I don't see her every other day of the week.)
Watch Studio 5 Monday at 11 to see her report. I'll post the story after they air it on Monday.
I was in charge of games! I gave out prizes for the people who knew the answers to these questions:
Greatest amount of children born to one woman69 children by a Russian woman in the 1700’s. She had 27 pregnancies and gave birth to 16 pairs of twins, 7 sets of triplets and 4 sets of quadruplets

Oldest woman on record to have a baby (naturally or with a doctor's help) 70 years old, she had twins in 2008

Oldest man to get a woman pregnant - A farmer in the Indian state of Rajasthan, fathered his 21st child at the age of 90!

Youngest girl to get pregnant and have a baby - Lina Medina (born September 27, 1939) is the youngest confirmed mother in medical history, giving birth at the age of 5 years, 7 months and 21 days.

Youngest father13 years old British kid in 2009

We also gave prizes to the woman with the most kids, the longest labor, shortest labor, longest time between kids, shortest time between kids, etc.

We had SO many donations for the shower, EVERYONE got to go home with a prize! I won five passes to a Roller Skating rink!
Ashley one a free car wash! Too bad she has to drive 45 minutes to use it in Draper.
Here is the entire Blogger Baby Shower planning committee! What a bunch of gorgeous women if I do say so myself! I love love love these women! They worked so hard and pulled off a really successful event!
I should also mention the whole thing was planned over e-mail. The committee never actually met in person.
That's Blogger Power!

***UPDATED: Here's the story that aired TWICE on KSL! Once on Studio 5 and once in the 4 o'clock news!
