Shower filled weekend!

Tuesday, March 31, 2009


This weekend was a fabulous fun filled weekend chock full of showers! First up, attending AJ's shower! The thing I love about any event with AJ and her friends, is that I almost forget how long she has maintained her friendships with other attending friends . . . because they are all so nice and inclusive. I never feel like I'm the odd man out, even though by count of years of friendship I clearly am! Lol. Additionally, there is always, always sure to be good food and Saturday did not disappoint! :) If I do say so myself, AJ got quite a bang for her buck traveling across state lines.

Saturday evening I worked what I think may be my last waitressing shift and caused a bit of a stir by writing "thinks this might be it." as my facebook status! Oops, I need to evaluate the weight of my words a little better next time.

Sunday then was my first shower, hosted by my cousin Shannon, aunt Sally and my Step Mom's friend Amy. We had hands down the best fare . . . a salad bar! How apt is that?!

I didn't go back for seconds though, because my stomach has me a little puzzled right now. It seems to take about 3 hours for my stomach to signal my brain that it's full. No joke, three hours, not really convenient! So I'm relying on normal portions . . . otherwise I'll end up like I did on Friday, after a trip to Ruby Tuesday. I ate my whole turkey burger and salad bar. I left feeling like I could still eat. Thankfully I didn't because 3 hours later I was stuffed beyond belief and actually didn't eat anything the rest of the day! It was ridiculous how full I was . . . even at 12:00 that night!

Anywhoo, back to the shower. I had a fantastic time! The set up was very conducive to an extremely relaxed shower and it was great to see family! We played two games, one of which my mother in law one and the other AJ ended up in a 4 way tie for. It was the "How many sheets of toilet paper around Leah's stomach" game and AJ being 1 1/2 weeks ahead of me, just wrapped it around herself lol. As a tie breaker I offered to step on the scale and whoever guessed my weight was the winner! Again, AJ using her own weight as a guide pulled through as the winner! :) Apparently all of the other guesses were far too nice lol.

I can't even believe I have two more showers after this one! We were blessed with such great gifts! The major ones being our car seat, stroller and baby monitors . . . oh and of course, Gopher apparel.

Fun!! Your car seat and your stroller? Those are big things to cross off your list - very exciting!

Although...1 picture of the festivities is definitely not enough. ;)

I love your comment on my post: "It can't help but be drank!" Indeed.

That's some serious baby loot! I LOVE that you had a salad bar at your shower. I would have been all up in that leafy goodness.

Meredith said...

Leah, can I just tell you that you look HOT in that blue shirt?!

Rachel said...

we have the same stroller and carseat and we LOVE IT!!!

Julia said...

what a pimp stroller, I love it.
Yay for showers. Are baby showers as much fun as bridal showers? Hmmmm...I'll ponder that one for a moment.

Dunc said...

How fun! And you are too adorable :-)

Leslie G said...

LOL at "thinks this might be it." Yep, I see how that could create a stir. =)
I have the same car seat/jogger (just different colors)- I love them! My only problem is with the car seat, Cam has pretty much outgrown it (height-wise). I sometimes wonder if there were infant car seats out there that accommodated longer babies. I'm not ready for him to be in a convertible car seat, LOL!

Becky said...

So glad you had a great shower! Looks like you got some AWESOME stuff, you look so good, blue is definately your color :)

C said...

haha way to falsely alert all the fb family and friends! :) Looks like you had a fab time & got some great stuff! I agree w/ Kristal- 1 picture simply does not cut it!

Looks like a great time! What great items to get at your first shower too! :) Hopefully you decide to stop serving soon... whenever that might be!

AJ said...

Hopefully you see this! I just read this post again for the first time in almost 2 years. I had so much fun being pregnant with you the first time around. I wish I could be there again this time around. ::sigh::
