showered me silly.

I'm so spoiled by great friends. Wednesday night Kelly, Heidi, and others threw me a baby shower. Every last detail was thought out from the invitations right down to the berry lined cake platters! What I thought was especially thoughtful was the cooshy chair they reserved for me to plop my swollen body in for the night. Nice touch.



Hostess of the Mostess chowing down (I mean, sampling) the variety of cakes. Double chocolate cake, brownies, red velvet cake and cheesecake. Talk about decisions. That's why I had to have one of each...PLUS a to-go platter!


Hostess of the Mostess II - making sure no detail is left unnoticed. Nice concentration on the lemon seed removal.


Flowers and candles to set the mood.


Here are the guests having a rip-roarin' good time...though this picture doesn't echo my claim.


Oh wait...here's one. Nope. On second thought, these guys look pretty bored too. I promise, judging on the volume in the room, everyone did have a GREAT time!


Thanks to all who came and showered me with ridiculously nice gifts. You guys are the BEST!

Happy Shower Ali! I wish I was invited! Why didn't you call me? I'd be out there on a plane in a second, oh wait they wouldn't let me on with my big belly. Cute little girly things...I love them.

I thought you guys might like those pictures. no need to thank me. I think you all look great. If I can post a picture of myself 50 pounds above average, then surly you can handle a picture with a bored look on your face!

I'm with Shell-Bell the cake would be worth the trip!!! You and Kelly would be a great touch too. Sounds like fun. Girl clothes are so cute, fun, addicting, and EXPENSIVE!! Enjoy this last little bit & eat some cake for me~~~
