Yup, that's right, baby and I are showered and ready to go! We were surprised with not one, but "TWO" baby showers! The first one was held at my house. My mom is amazing. She comes to my house with a huge cooler, unpacks a boat load of food, and takes over my kitchen (I love when she does that). And my sister in law totally out did herself. She claims she's not crafty, but look at all of the wonderful things she made...the mason jar cookie favors, the cheesecake pops, her signature cookies, the diaper cake, the amazing framed family tree, and the "It's a Girl" sign. She paid attention to every detail and made sure everything was "Tina" perfect, and for that I am truly thankful. The party was a huge success! As you can see, we were not left empty handed. Our friends and family were very generous and it's obvious the baby is coming into an loving environment.
Then, two weeks later, my very good friends/co-workers Tanya and Tara threw us another shower at my job. It was held in the morning and to my surprise many contributed to the potluck style buffet brunch. The food was delish! And what made this shower different was their unique choice of games. You can imagine how a quick game of pictionary can get interestingorking with a bunch of apparel designers and graphic artists. On top of that, I was totally overwhelmed with the amount of creative and thoughtful gifts. Many of them were hand made which added a special touch. Brandon and I left feeling very fortunate and blessed.
All we need now is the baby! 34 weeks and counting, we await patiently and in the meantime are enjoying the holidays with our family. We'll be sure to keep you posted! Happy Holidays!
