overwhelmed by kindness.

On Friday, work threw me a baby shower and this post title is exactly how I felt. When my manager asked me if I had registered anywhere, I felt embarrassed to tell her that I hadn't because I wasn't planning on having a baby shower (I'm not even sure I'm going to make it home to have one in Wichita Falls). 

Since moving here a January ago, my co-workers have really been my only friends here. The fact that work wanted to throw me this baby shower/potluck meant that much more

I wanted to share some photos from my instagram lens: 

25 weeks and 5 days 

presents came coming in - felix got so many adorable outfits/toys! 

 my co-worker Bertha made my baby shower corsage 

delicious cake

Rachel and her pintrest fruit creation 

actually, all my coworkers are creative : Diana made the sweet diaper cake and the bouquets of cookies for party favors. My big boss man Javier made a basket for me (top left) and hidden in the back was a nice bottle of wine. He joked that it was for celebrating the baby and then starting on the next one. 

love all my girlfriends! 2nd photo is me and Sarah, Sarah who makes the jewelry i love Pretty You & Me. Above is me and Jessica, both of us are pregnant-- about a week apart though this is my first and this is her 4th. 

little thank-yous i made the night before 


I truly believe no matter what your job is, your co-workers make all the difference. It's been true of every job I've had. 

I feel blessed by these friendships and so sweetly spoiled by them.
