baby shower

OC Baby Shower!

This weekend the girls at the church threw me a baby shower. I feel so blessed and am so thankful that people want to pour into us and our little baby girl! I guess my friends felt sorry for me after this post a couple weeks ago, because they bought me my dream diaper bag! I'm sure hubby is very grateful as well because now he doesn't have to listen to me whine about how much I want it (and doesn't have to buy it for me!).

Just a glimpse of the joy... yup there were tears shed over a bag.

A huge thank you to the girls who hosted a shower for me!! You guys rock!


After a trip back to Oklahoma for a few days, we have a lot to be Thankful for! Yes, we celebrated Thanksgiving and that always helps people be thankful.  But I'm in a state of shock at how blessed we are!   A huge thank you to the amazing women who threw us our shower.  We had a blast!  I'm so thankful for the friends and family who are pouring blessings and prayers over our little one.  

A huge thank you to our friends and family for gifts to our baby girl.  I can't believe how much she already has and she won't be here for three more months!! We were very blessed with all our friends and family have given us. We've been getting lots of stuff in the mail everyday for her! So much fun!!   

A huge thank you to my brother & sis-in-law.  They gave us bags and bags of clothes!!! Our niece will be 10 months older than our baby, so she'll be outgrowing clothes as we are ready for them.  Couldn't be better timing :) Thankfully Taelyn is a spoiled little thing with tons of cute clothes!!!  

A huge thank you to Marty & Nancy for doggie sitting our first born! The hard part about going to visit OK is having to leave the pup behind, and we're so thankful for people willing to take in the famous Jack Bauer James. 

An extremely huge thank you to Lee Jackson.  Our trip to OK wouldn't have been possible without the huge blessing from him.  We met Lee on our trip to Israel this summer, and had a great time getting to know him and his son Wes.  When we were stranded in Atlanta after Israel and disappointed that we were going to miss a couple extra days with family, he promised to help get us home at Thanksgiving.  And he totally followed through! What a great guy!! Lee, it was great to see you! Thank you so much!!!!!!!!  

In the words of my mother-in-law....I'M FILLED :)


Okie Recap

We're back in the OC, and we had a wonderful time in Oklahoma!!! Before we left I made a list of places I was craving that only Oklahoma has. I did a pretty good job!

Recap of food eaten:

Rodney's Pizza Raising Cane's McAlister's Hideaway Teds Braums Earl's BBQ

This doesn't include Thanksgiving Dinner(s).  I'm a little nervous to weigh in at my next doctor's appointment.  Could be ugly...but well worth it! YUM.

We had a wonderful day with my family on Friday and getting to spend the day with our niece Taelyn.  She was only a few weeks old last time we saw her and now she's six months! She's pretty cute!

Uncle Brook & Aunt KK

Sunday night was our baby shower and we had a great time!!!! These girls had the right idea and served a real meal...hello bbq! What pregnant woman wants to eat crackers and tiny desserts for a baby shower? No thank you...I'm not working on fitting in a wedding gown at the end of this.  I think those hospital gowns are huge and I'll fit just fine :)

It was such a great trip, and a blast to spend time with family & friends in the great state of Oklahoma.  I'm happy to be home with my puppy and back to the norm, but vacation is always great!!

Hello December! 3 months until we meet our daughter!!
