Second, my girlfriends threw a monster party for me and Abiella Saturday night. I haven't laughed so hard or yelled so much in a long time. When I got there I was greeted with my favorite drinks, favorite food (Mexican-hello GUACAMOLE and homemade quesadillas!) and THESE AMAZING CUPCAKES!!!!
And then the gifts! Oh my gosh! I had specifically said I didn't need gifts because so many people had given us so much during the adoption process... but a few weeks ago one of my friends called and said, "If you don't register, we're kidnapping you under the guise of a cherry limeade and making you do it." So I did. Turns out getting gifts is pretty darn awesome. Some of the presents included amazing outfits for Abiella, awesome books, and even a few things for myself. (A spa treatment AND a free house cleaning to name a few.) What!??? YES!!!
After gifts they had a fire with s'mores! (AHHH!!! NOBODY loves a good fire more than me.) I. WAS. IN. HEAVEN.
The party was across the street from my house so after 6 hours of absolute awesomeness I walked back to our place exhausted and happy. I hadn't been out that late in months. It was SO MUCH FUN and I felt so blessed. My friends know how to throw a good party any day... but add in all my favorite things and I thought I was going to seriously pass out from sheer joy.
I realize there's not a single picture of me in the bunch, but I've been told there are some great pics on a friend's camera... I will retrieve those and share them one day soon.
Now we're back to the normal week but thank GOODNESS Abiella is feeling better... We had some sort of stomach/respiratory virus last week that knocked her out of 5 therapy appointments... booh :( This morning we had feeding therapy though and we're back on track.
Cheers to a good weekend, great friends, and a healthy baby!
PS: Thanks to all the brave souls who participated in the Throwback Thursday link-up last week. That was SO MUCH FUN! Your pictures and stories were AMAZING and so much fun to read. You made my Thursday ridiculously exciting. You rock!
