i can't believe how amazing my boyfriend, friends and family all are!
on saturday i had a surprise baby shower, it was so sweet and well planned and thought out and such an amazing surprise.
two of my oldest and very best friends came up to visit their families this weekend. we don't get to see each other much these days and never all together as they both live far away now, so we arranged to go for a meal at a restaurant we'd always planned to go to.
i got back from work at 6pm on saturday and rushed about getting ready with my boyfriend as the table was booked for 7.30pm. as we were about to leave nick got a phonecall from his mum, saying she had fallen over and asked if we could stop at her's on the way to give her his wrist support. i drove up to her house and nick even called my friends on the way to tell them we'd be late, ha!
everyone had parked away from the drive and nick told me to go a different way because of "road works" so i wouldn't spot any of my friends/family's cars on the street. we jumped out of the car and walked inside and as nick opened the door to the kitchen, there was all of his family, my family, and lots of my friends! it was AMAZING!!
my favourite was definitely a baby clothes bouquet from baby blooms. it's a bouquet of velvet and silk flowers with rolled up baby clothes that look like flowers running through it! my parents got this for us, i don't think i'll ever actually take it apart - it is so beautiful!
we also got the angelcare baby monitor with the sensor pad
i have the best boyfriend, friends and family ever... i can't wait until oliver is old enough to realise just how lucky we both are to have them caring for us as much as they do.
Aww that is so sweet!! My first shower is June 19th . Over here in the States showers are very common (especially in first pregnancy) and usually the mom to be knows about it but I love that yours was a surprise!! It does sound like you have a wonderful OH and family!!! xx
