Thankful Thursday 34

Hey everyone! So sorry that my post is yet another Thankful Thursday. I have a lot on my plate right now, and I am having more and more difficulty blogging at this time due to work and preparations for Keira's big arrival (she's expected in 2 weeks!). But I make it a point to not forget to be thankful still for all the wonderful blessings that come my way, so here are my thankfuls for the week....

What CHRIXEAN is thankful for this week
More love "showered" on me and Keira! Jennie surprised me with this really cute "Star Baby" shower party. I was shocked, because of all the baby showers I've had recently, this was planned in secret really well. Thanks of course once again to my hubby, Allan, who by now has mastered the art of hiding these baby celebrations. I thought all along that I was going to help plan a surprise party for Jen's hubby, Rein! You should've seen the look on my face when I walked into Jen's house and saw big bright flowers, a milkyway of stars and a clothesline of pink baby clothing hanging across the room. My first thought was -- why in the world will Rein like this decor? Hahaha! Of course, then only did it hit me that it was actually a party for me! And it was a really great one, too! I loved the decor (thanks so much to Jen, Rein and Me-an!) so much that I brought them home and stuck them to Keira's wall! The food was great -- (oh my, oh my, you guys should try those creamy cheesy colorful sandwiches Ria makes. Mmmmmm!), and the cake was gorgeous (I felt so bad that I had to eat it at one point)! It was another memorable day for Keira and me, and again I feel so, so blessed to have such wonderful, caring and thoughtful friends. Thank you so much Jen and Rein for planning this day really well and for allowing us to mess up their lovely house in the process! Thanks also for all the great gifts for Keira, ninang! The clothesline was a great idea (and made for fantastic decor for the party!). Thanks to Me-an (I'm sorry, but the unicorn dolly is MINE! hehe) and Gigi (perfect scrapbook color choice!) for coming all the way to this side of town to be a part of the party! Thanks to Patty, Miren, Bianca and NiƱa, who adopted me and made me one of their siblings (I loved all the baby stuff... glad that we also have the same tastes too, hehe). Thanks everyone!!! Now all I have to do is sit back, relax (I wished...), and wait for Keira... :D
Isn't this a wonderful photo? Pretty maidens, yummy food under pink layette and a starry background!
The spread was mouth-watering! But those colorful sandwiches on top right were hands down winners!
A new take on the "guess-my-waistline" game. These creative ladies got carried away and created some really flashy belts.
The accomplice...
Great, great gifts all!
Under the laundry line. Jen and the supposed "surprised" birthday boy Rein (so sorry the Sammy surprise didn't happen...)
Beauties without their Geeks...:P

You are so blessed. What an awesome surprise. And you don't ever have to be sorry for posting "yet another Thankful Thursday" - we should be thankful everyday anyway right?

I do hope you get some rest before your little blessing arrives you crazy party animal, you! ;)

The White Rabbit said...

yup, i agree with "looney mom": you are such a party animal! and a very surprised one at that! ahahaha...but you deserve all the attention right now coz pretty soon all of it will be directed towards a certain cutie-pie called Keira. hehe.

glad you enjoyed the surprise. we had major fun preparing for it, and feel just as blessed to see it all go as planned. the way your face looked at my doorway is priceless! for that alone i would go through all the preps again! haha.

have a happy next two weeks! all will go well...can't wait to see the little "star"!


I agree with looney mom. You really are blessed with so many friends who really are good ones. May you be blessed with the little one coming to.
Thanks for visiting.

Hey there, sorry I haven't been by for awhile ... your blog wouldn't open properly for some reason, and I could never get down to a comment link !! Seems OK now. Brings up pop-ups, though ... oh well.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Take care, Meow

Are you ready?? We're trying to get the baby room ready (actually haven't started :) ) She's due on October 5, but this being our forth, and the size of this one I wouldn't be surprised if he came early.
Hope everything goes well!
