This weekend three of my very best friends are hosting a baby shower tea for me, and I can’t wait! Especially once I realized the Cinco de Mayo evite they sent me was a joke and that they would not actually be serving margaritas out of baby bottles – really funny, girls. Although I have to say, at eight months pregnant, I have no idea what I’m going to wear (my uniform most days is maternity jeans, a tank top, and flip flops – not exactly afternoon tea attire). The rest of the weekend will involve continued nesting efforts and my last prenatal appointment with my doula. I know I say this every week, and it’s probably getting old, but I honestly can’t believe how fast time is flying by and how soon our little girl will be here. It’s overwhelming and awesome all at the same time (which is what I imagine motherhood will be like, too).

    Parenthood: 98% different from what you thought it would be and about 2% of what you imagined. And awesome and overwhelming. Have fun at your shower!
