Surprise!

My bunco group threw me a surprise shower tonight! It was very nice of them. They have apparently been planning it behind my back since the last gathering.

Funny thing is I almost didn't go tonight. Wouldn't that have been disastrous! Luckily I decided to ditch work and go hang with the gals.

We have intentionally not bought clothes, toys, blankets, and small stuff like that because even though we are not having showers I figured I might get a few gifts of that nature. And it worked out because that's mostly the kind of stuff I got, and I'm very appreciative.

And I was telling the story about my MIL calling me fat the other day and everyone kept telling me that I was looking so good and had only gained in the belly and not in the face or legs at all. I don't know if they were lying or not, but I'll take it. That was a pretty nice gift too.

So even though I didn't want a shower, I appreciate my neighbors caring enough to throw one for me. It was really nice of them. I need to go get some thank you cards now and get going on them.

Fun! I admire you for not buying baby clothes yet. I'm tempted to do that, just because my family is already going crazy (and they don't even know the gender yet)...but dangit, the day after I find out the sex, I've gotta buy a little outfit or two! Haha :D.

Sounds like a nice surprise - I wonder what they would have done if you hadn't gone!

How fun!

I can't bring myself to buy baby stuff yet...all I see is the hassle of bringing it all back.

PS I'm sure your MIL is totally wrong and everyone else is right.

Oh how nice of them! I hope you weren't terribly uncomfortable. I hate surprises, and a surprise shower would have freaked me out I think! I'm glad you got some positive comments to counteract the mean (and untrue) one from MIL!
