Best Friends Host a Unique Baby Shower

Sandra and Kevin Usleman wanted to do something special for their best friends, Kristina and Scott Rehling who are adopting a child from the Gladney Center for Adoption’s Ethiopian program. Rather than a traditional baby shower with wine and cheese and baby gifts, Usleman decided to do something a bit different. A music concert seemed like the ideal event for the Rehlings who are veterans of the Austin, Texas, music scene. So, rather than presenting typical baby shower gifts like bottles and diapers, guests will buy tickets to the event and will be treated to an intimate, world class concert featuring some of the top music artists in Austin.
