Caroline and Serge's Baby Shower!!!
This weekend was a blast! It started early on Saturday morning, when I woke up and ate some breakfast (with Bosco's head on my lap) at around 6:30am. I then packed my things for Montreal and woke up Rob to drive me to the Greyhound Bus. We stopped at the Elgin Street Diner on the way to the bus station, and I had some "second-sy's"...yes another breakfast of sausage and eggs and some of Rob's blueberry pancakes! I fell asleep right away on the bus, and when I opened my eyes I was already in Montreal. Christian and Romy were there waiting for me, and when we got back to Sue's place, my mother had cooked up a storm!!! So then I ate the yummiest lunch of Korean bacon, dumplings, and shrimp! We all licked our plates clean, even Edouard the finicky eater! After relaxing at my sister's place, all the girls went shopping...my mother, Susan, Romy and I. So fun! We ended the night, as per Romy's suggestion, of getting KFC for dinner. She sold us on the idea by saying that this way, her "Halmoni" could actually eat with us at the same time, rather than spend all her time cooking in the kitchen...she's so thoughtful! I LOVED all the quality time I spend with my family this weekend...it's been a while since I was there last. And then this morning I woke up to find that the sun was shining BRIGHT BRIGHT RRIGHT!!! It was the perfect day for a baby shower! I haven't seen my friend Caroline since December when her pregnant belly was JUST showing! She was stunning today! She definitely has the pregnant GLOW! She literally looks exactly the same (no weight gain anywhere)...except in her big, cute, belly! I felt her very active baby dancing away in her belly...so fun! I once again ate like a big pig, and got to talk and laugh with my old, close friends. I nourished not only my insatiable stomach this weekend, but nourished my soul! Hope you all had a fun weekend too!
