Last night my church threw me a baby shower and let me just say it was a whirlwind! It took place at 8pm, right after class and since our class went over a bit and then I had to use the ladies room, I got there a little late. There were snacks and punch on one table and presents on another. When I was spotted, one of the hostesses quickly ushered me to my chair, pinned a corsage made of baby socks on my shirt and told me to get started. My friend, Amy handed me presents and my sister wrote down who gave me what. As I opened, friends came by my chair to say hello and I waved at others across the room. Jason mingled with other friends and I made a mental note to get the scoop on all of his conversations when the shower was over. As for me, I was on present-opening duty.
It was the fastest whirlwind of the cutest baby stuff that I have ever seen. My niece and two other little girls helped me and together we got it done. Everyone was so sweet and I was overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of my wonderful church family.
One of my dear friends and a fellow runner as well gave me a gift that was perfect and hilarious in so many ways. Shannon has two kids and they are friends with my sister's kids and our husbands are all friends and we get together for triple dates, running dates, races, etc. Well, the gift from Shannon was just hilariously awesome and we all had a good laugh about it. She said it was for me, not just for Eloise, so this morning I got it out and put it together.
According to the box, this is a Playmobile special called Mum with Jogging Stroller, and I have no idea where or how she found it, but I absolutely love it.
In other news, I got a really good night's sleep last night, which has made this day even better. Yesterday was sort of a slow, draggy day and so today I am feeling awake, alive and ready to tackle some projects that didn't get touched yesterday, and I'll kick it off with a visit to my doctor for a checkup.
