well, on saturday i had my very first baby shower! it was so fun to get stuff for Stella! being the center of attention is never very exciting for me . . . always a little uncomfortable . . . but i still had fun! the food was SO SO GOOD. it was a brunch as the shower was from 1030am till 1230 pm. we had french toast, egg stuffed tortillas with salsa, lots of fruit, spinich quiche, mimosas (EXTRA YUMMY!), and cupcakes of course! there were 2 games that were really cute and wrapped hershey bars as favors. they made me a diaper cake and were the best hostesses ever! after the shower 2 of my friends stayed and we all swam in the pool that afternoon then my parents made us all dinner. i think it was fun for them to have a house full of girls like they used to! we drove back home late that night and made it back a little after midnight. we were all exhausted and i'm still tired today! i'm so so so grateful for my girls! they know me so well and made the shower just as i would've if i had done it myself! i'll post pictures as soon as i can (pics are on my mom's camera).
