Josie's Baby Showers!

So on May 12th i had my first baby shower here in Cedar, my friend Mandy threw it for me. we didn't have the best turn out but i still had fun. We played a few game, ate yummy food and then opened gifts.

Then on May 19th i drove up north for my main baby shower, my mom and MIL Julie threw this one for me, they did such a great job everything was perfect, my mom made a ton of cute tissue paper pom poms and we hung them out side with balloons, then she bought a bunch of cute owl decorations that i could use in my nursery after. My Aunt Traci made me a really cute sign for her room that we hung up that says Josie on it. then for food we had mini cupcakes, choc peanutbutter flavor and strawberry lemonaid. then we had a crepe's bar that julie and sarah threw, then some crackers and cheese. 

We sent out about 60 invites, but got 20 RSVPs so we planned on maybe 30 people showing up, we had over 40 people come! i felt very loved! it was so crazy, i really enjoyed seeing everyone, and visiting the best i could, there was so many people it was hard to visit long, because i would see someone else i hadn't seen in forever that i wanted to visit with!  we planned on playing games but there was so many people that we just skipped them and went straight for presents! THANK YOU everyone for all the gifts! Josie got spoilied!!!! i truly loved everything that i got, and i really appreciate everyone who took the time to make her something. i got a ton of adorable blankets and burp cloths. I had so much fun and it was really good to visit with my family and friends. thank you mom and julie , sarah and aunt traci for helping throw a great shower!

I was 33 weeks during this last baby shower, and starting to feel big. haha and that was like two weeks ago!

here are some pictures of my baby showers enjoy!

Tulip Festival 2012

So since i had a week off of work after my accident, we decided to go up and visit Jesse's mom and Sister Sarah. It was a much needed weekend away, and I really enjoyed spending time with my neices and jesse's family. we took it really easy since i was still very sore and was on strict dr. orders to take it easy. so the first night we stayed up late visiting and catching up which was so nice i got plenty of play time in with my cute neices Paisley and Ava. Saturday we all went to the Tulip Festival at Thanksgiving point. It was so beautiful and the most perfect day, we spent a few hours walking around the gardens taking lots of pictures of the tulips and my nieces. then we went back to sarahs and all took a little nap then went to cafe rio for dinner and came back for a night of settlers! which was so fun, i definantly needed some family comfort after what happened.

ok so here are some pictures from the tulip festival. enjoy :)

Car Accident Part 2

wow im a slacker to the max! i guess i should finish my car accident post, and then i can post about everything else that has been going on.

So i left off where I had just been transfered to Labor and Delivery, let me tell you that the nurse i had that day was awful, and i can say that because i am a nurse. but anywho i was transported there and the CNA came in and had me sign my admit papers, after that i didn't see anyone else for 45min, the next person that came in was the doctor. He came in to check on me and tell me what the plans were for day. he asked if the Nurse had come in yet, and i said no, he was really suprised. but he told me they were going to draw some blood, and do an ultrasound and monitor me over night to make sure baby was stable.  so before the RN came in i had the lab come draw blood and the ultra sound tech come in and do my US, then after that the RN finally came in! holy cow i was kinda frustrated by then, and when she came in she didn't even tell me who she was, she wouldn't look me in the eyes and rushed thru everything. ugh. but besides that everything came back looking really good, no problems with baby or me :) jesse stayed with me till about 5pm then he headed home. I had a bunch of people from work come visit me while i was staying there, which was nice to have some company. then i just hung out till the morning, and was discharged the next morning at 10am. My night shift nurse was awesome, and made me feel very welcome and comfortable.

That same day i was in the hospital so was my friend Cami, she was a few doors down from me in L & D she was having contractions and actually had her baby that night, at 33 weeks, way to early, but her and baby are perfectly healthy.  so it was fun texting her all night, and visiting with her.

The next day i headed home, and was told not to go to work for a week, and just take it easy. so thats what i did. it kinda sucked missing work for the pay, but i was so sore, i had some extreme bruising on my chest and pelvis and hurt to move. so the first few days i just layed around. then that weekend we decided since i didn't have to work we would go up and visit Jesse's mom and sister. (i will post about that later)

The main thing that i want to remember about this experience was the feelings of comfort and love that I felt from my heavenly father. the moment my car stopped, the first instinct i had was to say a prayer. it was a very short and quick prayer but it helped me a whole ton. yes i was still in shock and freaking out but once i started to calm down i felt very comforted and knew that ultimatly everything would be ok. After looking at pictures of my car, and hearing from the doctors that it was a miracle that i wasn't injured worse, and that i was able to walk away from my accident, i knew that my heavenly father was watching over me, and that he was with me in the car, and kept me and Josie Safe. it was a huge testimony builder for me. I have so much love for my heavenly father and I truly believe that he knows each and every one of us and what we need, and that he watches over us in times of need. I am very grateful to be a memeber of this church.

I am so grateful that me and Josie are ok, and I can't wait to meet her and hold my little girl :)
