So last night I went to mom's house thinking that we were taking my brother's girlfriend out to dinner for an early birthday and went I walked in the door, there were about 15 people yelling "surprise!" I was so confused. I said "Surprise what?" I was trying to figure out why there were friends of mine there that weren't friends with my brother's gf. My mom had to actually say "It's a baby shower" before I got it. And of course I walked in all frazzled because DS was driving me crazy and having a complete meltdown and I was having hot flashes and felt all gross and here were all these people looking all nice and drinking wine. I ran home to change and DH came home from work early to take DS. It was great. Didn't get a whole lot for the baby since it was a second shower, but got lots of wine (!), three spa gift certificates, some cute books on being a mom, lots of band aides, ear plugs and first aid kits (since we will be having two boys), some gifts for DH #1 to cope better with the arrival of a new one, a gift certificate to a really nice restaurant for DH and I to have a night out, gift card to JC Penney to get pictures done of the kids, gift certificate for BRU and an AMEX gift card and some other stuff.
I don't think I have ever been that totally surprised in my life. It was awesome.
