What an amazing day.





So I woke this morning with plans to spend the day with my Mom and sister. The kids were off with there perspective grandparents and my husband was at a golf tournament. We had planned spa treatments at the Four Seasons and then my mother had some surprise for my sister and I, something that involved food. The spa treatment was amazing and very much needed. As we were leaving I was told I had to be blindfolded for the surprise. My mother was in her car and my sister and I were in my sisters car. I was a little pissed off that I had to be blindfolded for a surprise that was for both my sister and I. As we were driving to our destination my mind started spinning. Besides feeling car sick I realized my sister was in on the surprise and I couldn't figure out what was going on. She keep on telling me we were going to Brunch. I insisted they have Eggs Benedict where ever we were going or I'm going to be really pissed. As we arrived at our destination I realized it wasn't a restaurant, but my front door.

My husband over the last two/three weeks had been planning the most amazing baby shower a mother could ever dream of. All my family and friends were there, some from out of state.

For anyone who is not familiar with "Junk Posse", they make adoption jewelry. I had purchased a necklace that read in Spanish "I would go to the end of the earth for you". My husband made T-shirts for me and the kids with a picture of Faith and the saying, "I would go to the end of the world for you". He bought a beautifully delicious cake with her initials on it, and had the embroidered Mayan calender that I bought on our visit trip framed. I received more clothes than I know what to do with and bathing suits that will last all summer. My sister put togeether an adoption word scrabble, all but one person got "dossier" incorrect. It was a beautiful, incredibly thoughtful, amazing shower.

My husband felt that with the lack of support I've received through this process he thought I could use a pick me up. I am still tearing up thinking about it. My husband is absolutely amazing. I love you so, so ,so much. Faith is so lucky to have you as a Daddy.

And to my dear friend Suzette, I missed you at the shower, but you have a good reason for not attending. Kiss that darling baby boy of yours for me.
