spoiled...

that's what I am...very spoiled indeed. I have the most amazing friends and family imaginable; sometimes I just feel so undeserving of their love and kindness.

Being that Asher is my second, I wasn't expecting a baby shower, or anything of the sort; but was completely blown away by the two showers that were given in my honor.

While we were in Utah to pick up Asher, my sister Kim had organized a family shower at the Olive Garden. My sisters, sister-in-law, step-sisters, step-mom, and grandma all attended; and Asher and I walked out of there feeling like royalty. I'm so grateful to Kim for thinking up and organizing such a fun evening, to Lynell for footing the bill, and to everyone else for attending and for bringing such darling gifts for my new little king.



Last weekend, my friend, Amber (with the help of several other friends), threw the most amazing baby shower I'm sure I have ever attended. Everything was entirely color coordinated, and perfectly displayed, and superbly thought out...down to every, single, minute detail. I was completely overwhelmed by the amount of time, and work, and energy that went in to making everything so perfect and enjoyable for me and my sweet boy.











Once again, I'm sure that I have the most amazing friends and family around.

They make me feel so absolutely spoiled...and altogether loved.

Thank You.

Im sorry I couldnt go. I really felt included and loved when I got an invitation but was SO sad I couldnt make it. I had a date (reservation) with my mother-in-law and sisters. I miss you and CANT WAIT to see Asher!

Nicole, you deserve every bit of it. You have so many people you love you and your family to pieces and everyone just adores you all.

I'm still so sad I couldn't make it to the shower. I had to drop the food I made off at 7 am at Tara's house before I left. I'm so glad you posted pictures, though. Love you.

Awww, you really do have amazing friends and family. YOU are a person who has always given and given, so I am so glad to see you able to receive such great love and spoilings. You deserve every bit of it!

(And I am LOVING the color coordination -- I may just have to steal that idea for my sister in a few months...)

What a cute shower! I am going to have to remember some of those ideas for the next time I have to throw one!
