- Wedding: November 2011
I was at work yesterday, just doing my thing like always. A girl that I worked with said that there was someone in the front of the office to see me, and asked if I had an interview that day. I looked at my coworker and neither of us knew of anyone that should be coming in that day. I asked if she knew who it was that was there, and I was told that I should just come out and see. I thought maybe my DH was there to surprise me and take me to lunch or something.
Lo and behold, I walked out to the front of the office, and my Mom was there! She has planned a surprise trip up from North Carolina to be here for my shower this weekend! It was also her birthday that day! I was so, so, so, so, so surprised…I had NO idea that she might be able to come up! Of course, I cried a little when I saw her (pregnancy hormones!) and immediately went out to lunch with her. Once I got back from lunch, I worked for another 45 minutes or so and then asked if I could just go spend the day with her.
She said that she had to delete posts off of her facebook wall and stuff because the very few people that knew she was coming posted things about her having a great birthday and enjoying her time with her daughter. She couldn’t belive that she could actually pull off the surprise. She didn’t even tell my husband so that he would be surprised, too. I’m her oldest and this is her first grandchild…I am really excited that she is able to be here for the shower and am thankful for the people who helped her pull this off!
