We made it through another crazy week to get to Saturday for our shower!
And let me tell you about this week....woo boy!
Our beloved cat Bing passed away Wednesday night. We got to be with him when he died, but it was sudden and heartbreaking. We have had him since he was a kitten. He was only 8 when he died of FIP (Feline infectious peritonitis).
He had gorgeous blue eyes
And liked to cuddle with me when I didn't feel good.
And went on nightly walks with us and the dog, laying down in the road if
we started to take too long.
He was a one of a kind cat, and he will be missed.
So that kind of ruined our week, but Friday my parents came over to help us get the yard ready for the shower. Friday Dan also headed up to Chicago to get our new couch!
Old couch, tiny, uncomfortable, hole-y
New couch! Bigger, comfy, pristine!
I may have gone a little pregnant lady about it and insisted we needed a new couch before the shower. Luckily Dan went with it, and humored me. We got a great deal on craigslist and we are both super happy with it!
On Saturday we got everything cleaned and set up for the shower and then my friends Sara and Jackie came over and set everything up.
It. Was. Gorgeous.
Favors of succulents and plants.
Tee-pee for presents. We got so many!!!
Food table! We had a fajita bar.
Pumpkin cream cheese cake! Made to look like logs to go
with our "camping" theme.
Fantastic centerpiece done by the lovely Sara! (Hi Sara!)
Camp Baby Harts!
The lovely ladies that helped put it all together! Sara and Jackie!
Everything was so pretty when it got dark too!
We had some wii Karaoke for people who were brave!
Used a projector to put it on our neighbors fence
Everyone had a great time!
Thanks to everyone who came, pictured and not pictured!
Thank you to everyone that came. We had a great time and couldn't have asked for a better group of people to help us welcome our baby into the world!
Sunday Dan and I caught up on some work and finished cleaning up some shower stuff. We enjoyed our day together since this week Dan will be gone on a business trip for 2 days.
Tomorrow we get to see our baby boy again! I have an ultrasound and a midwife appointment that Dan gets to come to! We are excited to hear everything is going well and I have 9 more uneventful weeks to look forward too.
