More showers!

We had a marathon this weekend with showers on both days.  Brent and I cannot express how truly blessed we feel to have such great friends and family.  I was feeling really overwhelmed and worried last week with all that needed to be done, bought, and prepared for before Emma arrives.  After this weekend, I feel refreshed, excited, and ready for anything! The emotional support that each of my friends gave me was more than enough to get me out of my funk, and we can never fully thank everyone for all the gifts and goodies we received!

My hosts....

I am so thankful for Jane, Emily, and Annie - a family I am lucky to be a part of.  I have watched these girls grow from babies into beautiful young women and I am so proud of who they are becoming.  I affectionately call Jane my big sister, for she has been such an inspiration on being a Godly wife, mother, and friend.  I can't wait to start this new journey with them!
I am deeply proud that Kate and Jen grew from "neighbors" to dear friends over the past 6 years.  They have been people I love to hang out with and look to for support.  Here's to many more outings, walks, dinners, and impromptu cookouts!
And last, my mom.  It has been wonderful to take this journey as a mother, and share it with her.  It still seems oddly strange that she will be a grandmother!!!

My second shower was at Hayes Barton Pharmacy - the ladies Brent works with went all out to make sure we knew how excited they were about Emma:)  I can't be happier that Brent has found such wonderful people to work alongside, and what an awesome company Hardy White Pharmacies is.  Working for an independent pharmacy has been a dream of his, and he truly comes home happy everyday.  I am glad to be a part of their "family" and look forward to Emma roaming around the pharmacy and greeting customers as they come in.  The restaurant is closed on Sundays, but they reserved it for us.  Mrs. Virginia made the BEST chicken salad, deviled eggs, and homemade roasted pecans.  I did go back to the table at lest 3 times.  My only regret is not getting any pictures except for the food - can you tell what's on my mind lately???  Jennifer, Asha, Mrs. Virginia, Sue, Kate, Josie, Linda, Kathleen - I can't thank you enough!!!

Again, I apologize for not taking better pictures...when you're having fun...you can't help but not stop for those little details!

Aunt Paula, myself, and my mother:) I am 34 weeks..and still feeling great!

cute little onesies...
Preggos go for the food first...

Annie made these adorable rattle cupcake pops that she saw on Pinterest...they were so cute and yummy!
You know Emma will need lots of swim suits....lake, anyone?
Too funny!  I was joking around asking whether I needed a name tag for my own shower, and Kate quickly thought of this...as if being gigantic wouldn't give away that I was knocked up:)
I love to see her monogram and name...I don't think that fuzzy feeling will ever get old!
Kate and Jen made these delicious chocolate dipped pretzels for everyone to take home...words don't do justice to how yummy they were!

 And...last but not least.....the food at Hayes Barton....

 We have one more shower this week at my work - I am beyond a doubt getting so spoiled...Emma is going to be the most loved girl in the Triangle!
