Friday night, March 4th, the day before my birthday, we had some friends over to grill out. My parents came in town, and Gunter's parents joined us too. It was a good time of fellowship with everyone!
Some of the girls!

Thanks to my parents and friends for a wonderful birthday... oh and how could I forget my sweet husband who planned everything !
Saturday morning was my baby shower with my co-workers. Everything was perfect and they were so sweet with lots of personal touches that I feel in love with.
The table setting!
Notice the birdhouses and eggs... to match the nursery theme!
Opening the seersucker bubble from Mom.
Auburn diaper bag for John Turner.
This was from the hostesses... and much more Auburn things -
a hat, smocked bib, and National Championship t-shirt.
John Turner is ready for tailgating!
With my co-worker Kara.
Kara just had Baby Cal last week!
It was so fun being pregnant together!
The Blessing Tree
Every guest was asked to write a blessing for the baby and hang it on the tree.
This was probably my favorite part of the shower!
It was so sweet! I love reading the blessings!
Melissa, Tiffany, Kay, Me, Liz, and Sheila
After the shower, we celebrated my birthday again before Mom and Dad had to head back home. Here are my prized possessions that I received for my birthday...
The Nook Color!
I am in love! I am reading The Island on it right now... and almost finished with it!
If you have one and want to trade books, let me know!
And from my wonderful husband...
A Nikon d31000 !
Now I can capture some wonderful pictures of John Turner and our new family!
If anyone has one and would like to help me figure it out... let me know :)
