Baby Shower Weekend!

It's finally here, my baby shower is tomorrow!!!

Even though I had a nightmare or two about my shower this week (crazy, stupid, dreams!), I am really, really excited! I know the date, location, and food options, but other than that I have no idea what is planned! My mom, mother-in-law, and sister have been working really hard to put this shower together for me, and I couldn't be more grateful to them for all the planning and hard work they've put into it. I know it's going to be a great time, and look forward to seeing what things they have planned. 

Invitation from TinyPrints.com

Earlier this week it hit me....this is my baby shower. Baby showers are like...the real deal. People have baby showers right before they actually have their baby. Holy cow...how did I get here?! How did this happen?! (Well, I know how it happened...but you catch my drift...) How did I get to the point in my life where I am old enough to be attending my own baby shower?! It's caused me to do a lot of reflecting on the past few years: what we've accomplished, what we've done, how great married life has been for us, and how much greater it is about to become.

My house is suddenly going to be inundated with baby items, most of which Zoey will probably think are for her, haha! Nails are done, eye-brows are threaded, dress is bought, hair-cut is set for Saturday morning....now here's hoping I can at least reach over my stomach to shave my legs for the occassion!

Have a great weekend!

  1. This is indeed an exciting, reflective time. I have had many of the same thoughts about being a grandmother and your grandpa has undoubtedly had many of the same thoughts about being a great-grandpa. Holy Cow! How did any of us arrive at our respective stations. Yet here we are and it's all good, exciting and I feel wonderfully blessed! And...you're right-Zoey will think everything is hers and you're house is about to furnished with the Lil Tykes line! :-)
