Anyway, I woke up, ate some breakfast, and before I jumped in the shower Andy suggested we take Camden to Soda City and walk around for a bit after I was finished. This is a very normal Saturday morning thing for us so I didn't think a thing about it. So we strolled for an hour and then headed home.
As we were unloading Camden from the car Andy smirked and said he had a surprise for me in the den. Umm...okay.... So I walked in our quiet house and as I rounded the corner, SURPRISE! A bunch of our college friends, who are now like family, had broken into the house, with Andy's help, and set up a baby shower for us while we were out. I just couldn't believe it. Andy had been in on it the whole time. And that's why he cleaned the house, he knew his psycho wife's first thought would be "omg everyone has been in my house for an hour and I haven't cleaned the bathrooms." But they were clean and I love him for it.
The girls really outdid themselves thinking of every little detail. From the food and desserts, to the drink bottles and paper straws, everything was so cute. We had so much fun eating and opening presents and just catching up with some of our favorite people.
They were so generous with gifts. Baby Girl is so loved and we are so blessed to have such great friends.
Baby Girl's second Lilly dress. She officially has a better wardrobe than I do.

I don't know why I have such a weird face when I hold up something cute. I'll work on that.
Never been more excited about a trashcan in my life.
She will be a Carolina Girl through and through.
I'm generally not a fan of surprises, but this was great. I loved seeing all our friends and the ladies really did think of everything. They even cleaned up afterward, which was beyond nice. This group was made up of Andy's college roommates and their better halves so I was nervous the guys would get bored, but I think everyone had a great time. There are already a couple kids in the group and we had fun passing them around and hearing all the golden parenting tips. We truly feel so loved.
