    Baby Shower

    Tuesday, April 29, 2008


    This weekend was a very exciting one because we finally got to surprise Jen with the mini-shower I'd been planning with Katie and Jennifer. We got a hotel room at the Hyatt in downtown Minneapolis for a night and filled it with baby shower decorations, some of Jen's favorite snacks and lots of gifts for the new little one. Jen thought that we were just going out for a girls-night-dinner, but after the meal we took her to the hotel and surprised her! We had a great time and Jen was very surprised! We also ate at a REALLY good restaurant called Solera. Their tapas were to die for!!

    I guess Jen wasn't the only one surprised this weekend, as Mike and I were too. We were asked to be the our new niece/nephew's godparents and we were delighted to accept!

    There are so many exciting things happening in both families! While on vacation in New Orleans, Dennis proposed to my cousin Erin and they are planning a January wedding. Mike's brother Andy and Jennifer are also getting married in January and Mike's brother Dan and Katie are saying "I do" in October. Mom and Dad will officially be living in Minnesota in early June. And, of course, our godchild is expected sometime in late May! VERY cool stuff!!

    Even though the weather does not show it, summer is just around the corner. Our calendar is already booked up with all sorts of fun events! We are looking forward to so many things. This weekend Mike and I will be running a 15k race in Rochester and we will also be celebrating our 6th wedding anniversary - could it really have been that long!? ;-)
