The night I told my girls was a fun surprise for everyone... We scheduled a girls dinner for Tuesday night because my close friend Bromli was going to be in town. We showed up at Cheesecake Factory and once everyone had arrived, I said I needed to go to the restroom. Little did they know that I snuck outside so my Mom could hand me a tray filled with cupcakes announcing our pregnancy. (Shout out to my Mom for going above and beyond in making them SO CUTE!) I hid behind the hostess stand until the drink orders had been taken and then walked up to the table and said "I have a little surprise for you girls from France!" Then one by one I started passing out the cupcakes that had little flags on them saying "Aunt Katie" "Aunt Alexis" "Aunt Bromli" etc. etc. It took a few seconds to register for everyone but when it did we had quite the reaction and lots of hugs and celebrating! It was such a blessing to get to share such GREAT news with my best girlfriends all at the same time. We spent dinner going over the details of when / how we found out, the due date, boy and girl names, pregnancy symptoms, and all that other girlie stuff :)
PRESENT AWARD OF THE YEAR GOES TO NICKI COCHRAN!!! She MADE this onesie that says: MADE IN FRANCE and on the back...
LOVED IN TEXAS... Since receiving this both my Mom and Stepmom have requested one haha :) BF LOVES Aunt Nicki!
The night was perfect. I am so grateful to God for all He has redeemed. I really was convinced that our January pregnancy was perfect timing... but this time, with this NEW life inside of me, we got to share the great news in PERSON with everyone that we loved. Yet again, He never ceases to amaze me in bringing good things out of the bad. Shout out to all my girls who came/ were there in spirit - y'all mean the WORLD to me!
