Well, I sure felt spoiled this last week! I left Sunday morning to fly BY MYSELF to Chicago for several big occasions: Mom's REAL birthday (the surprise party in March was great, but I wanted to be with her in person to celebrate her actual day!) AND Abbey's baby shower!!! I could not have been more pleased that these things fell on the same day :D I think the time in the airport and on the plane might have been my favorite. It was the most obvious that I was on my own without the need for extra snacks or chitter-chatter... ;)
We went straight to the baby shower and had SUCH a nice time visiting with Abbey and everyone else! I was only there for two days, but we packed in plenty of eating, shopping and relaxing. I also snuck in a nice, long breakfast date with Brandi and Ellie :)
Yesterday, I got to go on this special date with Teresa: Book Signing and Chat with Judy Blume!!! This was my birthday present from Josh, which of course, he presented in the creative manner of a scavenger hunt :)
Getting a copy of her brand-new book signed!
