Happy Birthday!

To ME!  Yes today is my 33rd Birthday!  And yesterday was my shower.  What a wonderful weekend we had.  There was a lot of work done on my house.  It's not complete yet but it's getting there.  We should have the nursery completely done by next weekend.  The hardwood is down and the trim is back on it just needs to be cocked and a little touch up painting.  Then we need to finish the shelving in the closet, organize the furniture, and hang all her wonderful pictures and such.  I promise I will post a picture when it is done.

Onto the shower.  What a great day.  I got my makeup done which made me feel good.  Especially since I am so swollen right now.  Even my face is swollen.  Awesome!  I ended up spending way too much money on products, but I am really tired of my pro-activ, and was really looking for some new facial products.  I hope JD isn't too mad at me.  Oh well! 

We had about 30 people at my shower.  Some of my friends from my hometown came which was great.  So wonderful for them to have travelled 3+ hours just for my shower.  I was so touched.  And I was so happy to see them, as I haven't seen them in a long time.  Lola was spoiled rotten!  I did a quick speech and there wasn't a dry eye in the room.  I didn't intend to make everyone cry but I wanted them to know what a miracle it was that we were having a shower in the first place and how much it meant to me to know that this little Miss is surrounded with such love.

My parents left for home this morning, they are coming back again on the weekend when JD is off to finish the flooring.  So today I am spending the day on the couch, chilling with my feet up.  Who could ask for a better Birthday!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  Much Love!

I can't wait to see your nursery pics!! Sounds like you had an awesome weekend with the shower too. If I get a shower (usually are planned after baby is born) I plan to say something to the effect of our journey and how incredibly blessed we are too. Will be a toughie! And happy 4 year anniversary of your 29th birthday!!! Take care!
