Girls' Day Out

Yesterday was a special day - three of my best friends and I got together for a brunch and all-day girltime.  We've all known each other for about ten years - Julie, Cathy and I were neighborhood friends and I met Debbie at a Stampin Up party.  We've been best friends ever since.  In the past 18 months, Cathy and Debbie moved across town (about 45 minutes - a world! away) and we've had a hard time getting together. So we resolved for the new year to make it a priority to plan days together more often.

Little did I know that they planned a "First Time Grandmother" Shower for me.  I arrived to find our table covered with a blue tablecloth (we're having a boy) sprinkled with cute safari-themed confetti and covered with presents and some yummy "Nothing Bundt Cake" individual cakes at our places.  I was totally surprised and overwhelmed! I received darling gifts from each of them and they were generous to include gifts for my daughter too, which I opened and then wrapped back up to give to her next week at her shower!

Onesies from Debbie - I'm partial to these...

Five Little Monkeys book along with the little monkeys from Cathy - adorable

Cards and decorations

Can you tell that the theme of the baby's room is safari/monkeys?

A million thanks to my dear, dear friends. Love you three!
