Baby Shower Thank You List

Last weekend was the live Google+ Hangout for our online baby shower (if you missed it, you can see it here). It was a wonderful experience, getting to share the celebration of our impending arrival this December with our online friends and family. I also can’t even begin to express how thankful my husband and I are for all of the gifts we received off of our registry. We were pretty overwhelmed by all the little things we’d need for our first baby, so every gift we received is a blessing!


I’ll be writing more about the online baby shower experience as a whole (probably after our big move at the end of this month) on my personal blog. But until then, I wanted to say a special thanks to all of those who sent us a little something!

Also, thanks to family and friends that aren’t publicly online or wished to not be mentioned. All of you should be receiving thank you cards in the mail too – not sure on the delivery time for those of you outside of the US, but it’s on it’s way.

For those who are still interested in sending us a little something (cloth diapers and Amazon gift cards are especially welcome), we’re still registered at Babies R US and Amazon. :)

Every week on Friday, I start a thread on the Social Media Examiner Blogging Club so members can share their favorite blog post of the week. It’s free to join, so sign up, find today’s best blog post thread, and share your proudest blogging achievement of the week!

If the reunion at the end doesn’t tug at your heartstrings, then I’m not sure what will. :)
