I have THE BEST friends.
They totally "Got Me'.

This past Friday I hustle bustled through the house, cleaning and prepping to host some churchy ladies for a "get to know you" kinda event. I was very proud of myself. 
I thought, I had this great idea for a recipe exchange and that I had cunningly "guilted" my gal crew to attend the event. 
{They don't usually go to these things.}
Like, I said I was very proud of myself. I even told a few of them so...
I thought I was really pulling something off.


"Ding Dong"
{open door}
{slam door}
"What is this?"
{Tears in my eyes. Open door again...}

A traveling baby shower...standing right there in my driveway. 
They totally "Got Me". I never saw it coming. Never even suspected.
This was the first time in my life that I have ever been surprised.
{for realz}
And it was AMAZING.

The decor, the food, the "party games", the guests, the was all perfectly me. You might think I had planned it myself...every detail was exactly what I would have chosen. 
Again, it was amazing...simply amazing. 
{Balloons, mason jars, fresh flowers, and Chickie's and Pete's French FRIES...HELLO! Doesn't get any better.}
They totally "Get me". 
I am so loved & so blessed to have such thoughtful friends. I feel unworthy, but I'll take it. {wink}
