Surprise Shower

I had some friends suggest we all get together for a "girls night" dinner tonight a few weeks ago. I was excited to go tonight and get out and see some of my friends. We met at a restaurant in Fayetteville and I rode with my neighbor/friend Melissa.

I was SUPER surprised when I got there and found out it was a shower for Hollis! They had the cutest cake made for me in her nursery colors! :-)  I had requested my Sunday School class NOT to have a shower for me because I feel like we have so much and I just didn't need a shower. So I felt bad that these friends did this - but it was SO nice and it was fun to get some cute things for Hollis.

Julee, Jill and Melissa
Laurie, Amanda and Whitney

When the girls put the dinner together - I had thought about inviting Laurie and Amanda and then knew they had both been out of town or were going out of town and probably wouldn't have time so I just didn't. When we pulled up - I was pretty sure Laurie's car was parked next to us and I thought - "maybe someone invited Laurie?" and felt pretty bad it hadn't been me. I was excited they got to come! That was a surprise too!
All the girls. I would have dressed up a little more or fixed my hair a little better if I knew it was my shower. ha! ha! I just thought I was out for a little dinner! I'm so blessed with so many sweet friends and Hollis is lucky to be so loved! And now she has a few cute outfits that weren't worn by her big sister. ha! ha!

(I should add that I met almost all these girls through my blog. And I'm so thankful! I'll say it 1000 times - if you told me 10 years ago some friends I met on the internet threw me a shower - I would think you were CRAZY!) ha!
