Mota-Vational Quotes

  • "Life isn't about how to survive the storm but how to dance in the rain!"
  • "The happiest people don't always have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have."
  • "Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."

This past weekend my wonderful mom and some of her friends threw me an absolutely amazing shower in Mineral Wells. These ladies went ALL OUT! I walked into the country club on Saturday and immediately felt that little Preston and I were surrounded with love and excitement. We had around 50 attendees, WAY more than anticipated. Some of these people traveled quite a distance to share in this celebration with us and it really meant a lot to have them all there! The room was decorated with "It's a Boy" banners, beautiful blue hydrangea arrangements, an adorable cake with the most precious little baby made out of icing on top, balloons, baby music playing in the background, a wonderful food spread, adorable personalized mint tins and "It's a Boy" bubble gum cigars! It was just awesome!

They had a fun memory game planned to play where my mom and my aunts dressed me up in baby gear from head to toe and I put on a fashion show for the attendees. The person who could write down the most of the accessories won a prize. It was lot's of fun! I think we might have had more fun in the back room trying to determine where these things were going to be pinned on (hence the placement of the nightlight, hat and rear view mirror).

After the fun game I proceeded to gifts. With this many attendees, you can only imagine the incredible gifts we were showered with! We got so many great things! I obviously can't name everything here, but to list a few we got, our stroller, car seat, baths, towels/washcloths, lots of blankets, moses basket, portable swing, pack-n-play, bouncing play station, vibrating/musical seat, books, toys, clothes, diaper cakes, a few adorable personalized Preston pieces including his letters for the wall and some much appreciated AGGIE and TEXAS gear to support everyone in our divided family. =)

It was amazing! I really can't thank these women enough for throwing such an amazing shower. I had such a great time!! I am beside myself and completely in awe with the showing at this shower and the incredible amount of excitement that is felt for our new little family. We could not be more excited. We have had so much fun unloading everything in Preston's nursery. This was truly a shower of love and I will never forget being showered for my first baby boy by so many wonderful people! Thanks again to everyone involved for making it so very special!!

I do want to say a special thanks to my incredible mom who did everything to make this perfect for us. I am so thankful to have you as a resource for this pregnancy and a friend to share in the excitement of it all! I love you with all my heart!!
