"Great Expectations"


My dear friends Jennie and Milena threw a baby shower for me a few weeks ago. The theme of the party was "Great Expectations." For the invitations they made a "library card" with all of the information about the shower, including the Title(theme): Great Expectations, and Due Date : DEC 17 2008(that was my favorite part)...It was so clever! There was also a bookmark asking everyone to bring one of their favorite books for me to read to the baby(in lieu of a card.) I was given some wonderful treasures that I have never even heard of! At the party everyone was asked to write one line about yours truly, which would be compiled into "Ode to Carol" It was funny, sweet, and so very thoughtful. Thank you ladies for being such great friends and putting together a fantastic shower for me! And Jennie, you did a fantastic job planting all the beautiful flowers in your back yard!


My mom, sister Mikenzie, and my best friend from high school-Maryssa surprised me and drove up for the shower. Becca and Isabelle got to spend 3 fantastic weeks here(more about that later.) Maryssa brought a whole assortment of bath bombs (round, fantastic smelling balls that you put in the bathtub to make your skin feel soft and smell oh so sweet) to make a "Bath Bomb Buffet" All the guests went home with a bag of different scents of the bath bombs. Thanks Maryssa, you rock!
