Thank You Everyone For Such A Great Shower!!!!

Thank you everyone for such a good shower!!! We got so much helpful stuff! I am starting to feel like I am ready!

For those of you who don't know, I am on doctor ordered bed rest. I have been for about 4 weeks now and I am going crazy!!! I know it is needed but it's hard to just be home and not really be able to do much either. My doctor has given permission for minor activities but I still have to take it easy. As of tomorrow, I will be 37 weeks, so although there isn't a lot of time to go, being home makes it feel like an eternity. But at least it is for the best! The problem that put me on bed rest was high blood pressure. And since I have been home from work, it actually is a lot better. In fact, at my appointment today, it was the best it has been for probably about 6 months. So things are on the right track, even if it is a slow one. I am deffinately needing to learn some more patience :).

So here are pictures from my shower that was last Saturday. It was great that so many friends were able to make it! I got lots of pictures with friends and family.

This first one is my friends from middle school and high school. This is the first time in a long time that we have been together. From left to right: Amber, Jen, me, Carrie, Michelle. Jen and I became friends in 7th grade. I became friends with Amber and Carrie in 8th grade. And even though Michelle and I have known each other since about 1st grade, we became really good friends in 11th grade. I am lucky to know all of them!!!

I know I am a big meanie, but I made my husband come! And because he is such a good man, he did and he was even pleasant and didn't put up much of a fuss!!! And look at how cute he is!!

This is my friend Cecilia. We used to work together about 3 years ago. Even though we don't get to see each other much, she is one of my best friends and I miss hanging out with her!!!!

Here is me, Lindsi, my sister-in-law and Malia, my niece. She is really one of my best friends!!!

This is Bea and Thea. They are Thong's cousins. See Amber (Lafata), Thong really does have cousins!

Here is my very good friend Amber Lafata. Along with Jen and Marci, she threw the shower for me. This is actually at her darling house!! For those of you that don't know, she is more crafty than I am!! She has her own blog at . You should deffinately check it out! She is extrememly talented!!!

Here is Amber, me, Marci and Andrea. Amber and Marci both work with my husband, Thong. And they still put up with him and have room left over to be my friend :). I meat Andrea through Amber and Marci. And the funny thing is, Andrea is friends with Mary (see below). They used to work together. Marci is rubbing my budha belly for good luck!

This is me, Miriam (my sister), Mary, and my mom, Wylene. Mary is my sister's friend from middle school. She is such a sweet person and has had some hard times lately! I hope you know I love you Mary and am thinking about you!!!

Unfortunately, I didn't get pictures of everyone that came! So if you don't see yourself here, it's not because I didn't want ya!

Thank you everyone for such a great day and for all the help! Lord knows I need it!!! Can't wait to show off our little one!!!

Happy Stamping Everyone!

Ok, hi, I just left a comment on your magnet board post, and then I looked at the rest of your blog and was in shock! You are so amazing and creative! I can't even process it all! I hope you don't mind, I'm going to add you to my blog so I can keep updated on all the cute things you do!
P.S. Congrats on the baby! I hope it all goes well!

Hang in there Leana! I know it isn't fun! I had problems with high blood pressure right at the very end, maybe it is in our genes? Your baby will be gorgeous!

I'm going to link to you as well so I can see that baby when she comes.

You look fantastic! I can't wait to meet the little one!!! Sorry I couldn't make it. Cindy and I are going to get out there to see you soon. Maybe we'll wait until after the little Miss arrives since she could be here any time. Big Hugs.
