What a day....

This weekend was quite the whirlwind. 1:30 am I was awoke by the sounds of a very sick husband. We don't need to go any further right? So... I was up. Unfortunately, if this prego wakes up (for whatever reason) it takes a long time to get back to sleep.

Long story short, I went to the couch for a not-so-restfull 3 hrs then to Leah's bed for 1 hr of sleep while a 2 yr old rubbed my arm. The thing is once my kids (and prob yours) are awake we they are AWAKE! I love that they don't need to stretch or pee or brush their teeth. They are just at it. Mama, not so much this morning!

The plan for the day included a cheesecake date with friends, Ay's bff's bday party & the bball game. But, from the moment I woke up I was already planning on how to get out of ALL of it. And Jeff was quarentined. period.

My mother-in-law called to pick up the girls to give me a break, but after several texts to reschedule my "cheesecake date" I was beginning to get the feeling I was not getting out of it. My last text just said, "you're coming. we'll pick you up. dress nice."

So now I wanted to cry because my friends obviously think I will wear my sweats on our date.

I gave myself 20 mins to "dress nice" aka whatever is cute, that fits, and is clean. I was limited.
I was picked up and on my way.

Anyone, seeing where this is going?

We show up for our "cheesecake" which actually ended up being the most fantastic, sweetest surprise I've ever had! Two of my great friends pulled together a little surprise shower for Abram-- and I gave them such a hard time!!

I wanted to cry for my nap, then ended up crying because I felt so blessed! I feel so blessed that so many friends and family got together to love on our little man even before he is here with us.

I wish I had pics to document this, but clearly was unprepared. Jen- send them my way so I can brag on your awesomeness even more :)

Awww, what a nice surprise and super nice of them to give you the heads up to dress nice. I don't like surprises for exactly that reason :)
