thoughtful friends are my fave

January 27, 2012

If anybody ever asks me what my favorite part of blogging is I always respond, “The friends I’ve made.” I met both Danni and Karen through blogging and last week during Alt they somehow managed to squeeze in an adorable baby shower, in our hotel room no less! It’s still hard for me to believe how thoughtful those two (and actually the entire guest list) are. Both baby and I are incredibly blessed.

You can see more photos on Oh Hello Friend. And now I’m crying.

    So sweet! You look amazing and all the food and decorations do, too — what a wonderful surprise. How nice to know that you and baby are loved and cared for by so many far and wide, isn’t it? 🙂

    Okay, I’m creepy too. I love making new friends. I don’t even know you that well but I liked you so much when we met! Very creative. And very cool.

    I love your bump photos. So happy for you two. I mean THREE!

    I agree completely with you. My favorite part of blogging is the friends I’ve made too.

    So glad I was able to be there and see Danni and Karen in action. They’re both amazing!

    Oh wow, that is REALLY sweet. Good friends are the best.

    What a cute party! At first I thought they just whipped up that party last minute, and I was all flabbergasted at the craftiness, but it’s a little reassuring to know there was at least a bit of planning going into this. It doesn’t seem AS superhuman.

    Also, you really are the cutest pregnant lady.
