Shower the Baby

What a wonderful time I had. My friend Hilarie threw me a shower in Cali before I leave! It was so awesome and since we don't know the sex of the baby yet, we made it a baby shower/bon voyage party & the theme was French! I loved it! Beautiful french music in the background, french art, eiffel tower, decadent desserts, champagne (& Martinellis for me), tea, lovely!

I had so much fun haning with some of my great friends! Mom and grandma Joyce were there, which I was so excited about. I recieved so many great gifts for the baby! Things I really really needed! Things like a Diaper Genie, a diaper bag, books, recieving blankets, burp clothes, pacifiers, baby wash, medical kit, toys, clothes, a boppy, and 2 airline tickets!!!! Yeah, My friend Hilarie, not only threw us an amazing shower, but also gifted us two buddy-passes to come back to CA when the baby is born!!!
I loved being with my friends and hearing motherhood stories. I feel very blessed with all of these women in my life. I will miss them all so much & be calling them very often for advice & to just cry. hehe. Here are some pictures:

A Quickie

Alright, so I told all my friends about my blog & then got complaints that I never update it. lol. Which is... well true. I guess it takes a backseat to myspace, facebook, packing & hanging with friends. BUT no more, well... I mean I'll make time for it.
I had my Cali baby shower, which was a blast, but I'm waiting for some pictures from the hostess, Hilarie, before blogging about it.
I said goodbye to my first friend the other day, Janet. It sucks, but I know I'll keep in touch with her & I'm moving closer to her family so I'll likely see her a few times a year. This move still does not seem real and it's about a week away. Then bye to everyone. At least until next summer-ish. (i'm saving more info on that for the baby shower blog, hehe)
I don't have any regrets about moving though, as hard as it will be I think this will be a growing experience for me & Corey.
Ok, well... I said this was going to be a quickie, so bye! I need to pack some more.
