If you read MBA on a regular basis, you may know that I am pregnant – like way pregnant. And although I’ve really enjoyed carrying Baby E for about 38 weeks, I’m ready – like way ready for her to be born.

Last night, I slept for about 47 minutes and after hours of staring at a sleeping Eric (in a non-creepy way, I promise) and watching countless makeup related videos on YouTube, I fell asleep at about 7:00AM.

Amidst dreaming of doughnuts, I was awakened by a buzzing phone that I had placed about 3 inches from my face. Silently cursing myself for not turning off my ringer and whoever was texting me at ridiculous o’clock, I grabbed my phone with my numb right hand (hello, pregnancy carpal tunnel) and noticed that the buzzing sounds were Twitter notifications.

I stared at my phone screen trying to read the letters through blurry morning eyes and realized that one of my best friends on the planet had organized a virtual baby shower for me and Baby E.

Amber from Bluebonnets and Brownies teamed up with an incredible group of talented food blogging friends (see below) to create a perfect shower full of amazing and of course, delicious recipes.

After a couple of brief naps, I have slowly made my way through each of the posts to be left with a full heart, tear streaked face and immense gratitude for each and every one of these amazing friends. I am so thankful to be part of such a fantastic community full of the some of the most talented, kind, and giving people on the planet.

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart! You made our week and it was seriously the sweetest thing you gals could do!

Stay tuned for a formal introduction to Baby E. – she’ll be here early next week!

    I had so much fun making your cupcakes. The only thing that would have been better is to share one with you. James’s coworkers, however, are *really* happy you’re having a baby!
