On Friday the boss
Here are some pics from the shower:
Our conference room has never seen so much pink!
I think what made my work shower so special is that I spend so much time with these people every week. We have very stressful moments, and
We did play this
On Saturday, my Aunt Nita and cousin, Christi, hosted a shower for me. Unfortunately Christi got sick and was not able to make it. I'm sure that is really disappointing for her as she did a wonderful job planning it and was not able to see how it all turned out.
Let me just say this: I love my friends and family. I'm so lucky to actually get to enjoy the time I spend with my family. And my friends, of course, I picked them out. So obviously they are wonderful! My Aunt and Cousin are quite the party planners, and continued the owl theme. I got lots of goodies to add to BGT's scrapbook and keepsake box.
My Aunt said she forgot "a dip." I'm still not sure if she was talking about the chips or a family member she forgot to invite. ;-)
My Aunt had no idea that I have been eating chocolate cupcakes like it is nobody's business. It was the perfect treat. Also, we had "cake balls" from that bakery in Ankeny. They were as fantastic as you have heard.
First let me just go ahead and say I LOOK HUGE! I knew I put on 4 pounds in the last two weeks, but holy cow! I literally had no idea that I looked like that. In fact, I saw my sister for the first time in a few weeks on Friday night.
When she left I said to Tommy "Don't Erin and I look the same size?"
Tommy said "Ah, no."
I said "Really? I think we do."
Tommy said "Well, I guess I didn't really look."
Well, clearly Tommy did look but wisely choose not to have that discussion with me. I am also thinking that a lot of that baby weight must come on starting at week 32, right? Erin, Laura and Kimber look great!
No wonder my coworkers all guessed me 12 inches bigger than I am. If I saw that I probably would have demanded another string!
I'm so excited for BGT to have so may friends her age already! Erin, Laura and Kimber are all having boys. (Erin and Laura's gender have been confirmed by modern science. I am relying on the Chinese birth chart for Kimber's gender!) Normally this is where I would go on and on about how bummed I am that al of their kids are boys. Then Tommy kindly reminds me of Mindy's triplets and not to be too greedy! He is right. Once we factor in the Guerra Triplets, the girls still out number the boys!
