The Baby Shower A.K.A. The Surreal Life

Over the weekend a small group of friends hosted a double baby shower for me and another expecting friend. It was a wonderful time! They had a delicious lunch and gave us pedicures with foot massages. We also got "tattoos" and had fun opening baby gifts.

This baby shower was such an encouragement to me. I enjoyed hanging out with old friends, being pampered and celebrating upcoming baby.

When I got home, I thought: "Where am I gonna put all this baby stuff?" We don't have a nursery yet, and it just felt so surreal to have diapers and other baby things in the house again. It's exciting...but surreal. I find myself thinking: "Is this really happening?"

I am so grateful for these friends who took the time to celebrate our pregnancies and pamper us. It was one of the best days I have had this whole pregnancy.

Updated to include:
I failed to mention that this was every bit as much Emma's shower as it was mine. She loved opening gifts, getting tattoos and having her toenails painted for the second time ever!
