Baby Shower #1 Ready to POP

Last Saturday I was blessed to receive an awesome baby shower from my best friend Catherine up in Arlington. It was so nice of her to throw me a shower for all my friends that I have up there so they didn't have to travel to Manassas. I got to see a lot of people I haven't seen for a while and had a really great time visiting with them. I also really needed the distraction with all the baby drama that is happening. The stress relief worked since things are looking much better for me and for baby and we may not have to have the baby so early.

I love the "Ready to Pop" theme that Catherine did so well. She made over 6 different kinds of popcorn and had lots of my favorite candy in purple and pink not to mention the Jones soda "pop" and take home bags that said, Thanks for popping by" that all the guests got to fill up with their favorite popcorn.

I really appreciate everyone that was able to come and celebrate with me and for all the wonderful gifts that were given. It is nice to have people that care about me and my baby. We haven't had a newborn for a long time and it is nice to get all the things that help make it easier. Thanks to all and a special thanks Catherine and to my friend Kelcy for opening her home and helping Catherine out.

Here are some wonderful gifts I also received from my Mother in Law, we really appreciate all you do for us.
