I am a lucky girl

And this weekend was a reminder of just how lucky I am.

Here's a little run down of events...

Steve's parents came into town on Saturday morning and we all went to take a tour of the birth center.  We were very happy to have them with us since my MIL has a great deal of expertise in the hospital arena.  It was great to see where everything is and what the rooms look like before the big day. 

Sunday my sister Niki threw us a baby shower- it was amazing, I can't thank her enough!!  The food, the games, the people- I'm blessed!!  It was wonderful to see everyone and we are so appreciative of everything we got (baby girl's room is full of bags and boxes right now!)  Thank you so much to everyone who took the time out of their busy schedules to be there (especially those who came from so far away!!).  And thank you to my dear friend Tricia who opened her home to everyone. Love you all!

There were so many pictures, here are just a few

My wonderful family & friends

Aunt Jody & my sister Niki

My fantastic mother in law
My best friend Courtney- came all the way from Denmark!

While I was out having fun at my shower, Steve and his dad were busy working on the house.  We now have a much more functional laundry room in our basement with cabinets and counter tops for all that baby laundry we're going to be doing- it looks so great!

This Sunday we start our series of baby classes.  With Steve busy getting his MBA, our schedules have been stretched thin and trying to find a day and time that we could go to classes was looking iffy. Luckily, we finally found classes that are offered on Sundays through September.  We will be taking baby basics, childbirth and breastfeeding. I can't believe we only have 11weeks left!!


  1. Time is flying by!! :-) I can't believe how fast our pregnancies are going!

  2. Wow what a blessing to have some many wonderful friends and family members celebrate you and your little girl. Time is moving so fast, before long you will have that beautiful bundle joy in your arms!
