Seeing as I'm having my second girl, a shower was not in the plans. However, Lizzie, being the loves-you-like-a-sister, always-seems-to-do-more-for-you-than-you-do-for-her, super-friend that she is, planned a "girls-night-out in honor of Lillie having a baby" kind of thing. She shot out an email to some of my closest friends and convinced me it was no big deal, a chance for us all to get out for dinner together.
Last night I collected-- enjoying a night out with a table full of some of my favorite girls, PRESENTS which I don't think are supposed to be part of a non-shower... (but I'm NOT complaining :)- one can never get enough self-pampering and pink- THANKYOU!), Pasta Da Vinci- my favorite dinner at The Cheesecake Factory compliments of Lizzie and Holly, a huge, heaven-sent, beautiful, black-out chocolate cake served in it's entirety... and I'm still enjoying some at home today :) (seriously Lizzie, I've never even SEEN someone purchase a whole cake there), and even a favor to take home. And she said it wasn't a shower. Pretty sure I just cheated the shower-system.
Thank you, everyone for coming... and Lizzie-- what would I do without you? Really.
