So, yesterday I was surprised with a very nice shower at work. I knew one was coming, I just didn't know when.
I didn't do much at work that day. I answered emails and then worked on one app, we then had a pointless meeting. Afterwards, my old boss started worrying what would happen if I went into labor so she wanted to go over a plan of attack in case my water breaks. I'm like if that happens, I'll go home to labor as long as possible. She's like can you do that?? I will drive you wherever you need to go. I'm like okay sounds good.
Then another coworker decided she needed to go to target at 2 so I should come with her. Sure. Whatever. I worked on another app, answered more emails, ate lunch, did general futzing around. We went to target around 2. Jen was acting weird, the shower thought went thru my head but I was like whatever just be surprised haha. Plus, jen is weird Lol
On our way back to the office she started going on and on how she wanted iced coffee. Im like okay so get some. She's like no no I want it from the kitchen, come with me. I'm like okay let me just put my stuff down at my desk. She's like no just come now no one cares where we are. So I followed and as I walked thru one set of doors it hit me and I started laughing.
I walked thru the kitchen doors and like 40 women yelled Surprise!!! I was shocked. They invited Mark to join in the fun so he was with a room full of ladies. I wonder how awkward that was for him before I showed up.
They had cakes and desserts galore and a ton of gifts. We were surprised about the amount of stuff. I just said to Mark "I told you people love me, I'm pretty fantastic".
My department got us a high chair and then everyone got individual gifts also (except The Loud One which I find hysterical). We got a bunch of clothing, towels, toys, lots of stuff I can't remember. Most departments got us gifts and then individuals who love me got extras. The company bought us a pack and play. Everyone was super sweet and I was overwhelmed by the niceness. I even got a gift from someone I don't know so that'll be an adventure when I go to give her a thank you card.
To top it off, my boss told me to go home early. And i had to wear a crown. All in all it was pretty fantastic.
