(I'm not naked & that freeze frame face is just cracking us up down here...also, I even told her not to Y0u Tube this video, but because video #1 was not to be shown, I caved to this one)
So I was totally not expecting to have an O~hi~yer friend walk in on my little pool party around 1:30 this afternoon, holding a camcorder to get the shock & awe of my reaction to that surprise. I am forbidding K to show the actual footage of that moment because well....it's bad. I have a strapless bikini on and had to do a little bolt through the house as she chased me down with a video camera. It was no Baywatch kinda scene. When she walked in I was on the phone with my agency coordinator, struggling to hear her & understand what she was saying. I would catch every 3rd word she was saying, since she speaks with a HEAVY Chinese accent & K was screaming..."SURPRISE!" So I ran. Needless to say, this is the only clip I can publicly show of that grandiose moment.
A few of my friends decided that we needed a party to celebrate Emerson Grace & I guess there was some conversations going on behind the scenes, even J was in on it to get K down here unbeknownst to me. I feel very humbled that a girlfriend I've only known for a short while (3 yrs) would rearrange her schedule & hop a plane to include our family's joyful celebration. This has obviously been a very emotional & meaningful time in our family's life & it was disappointing today when I heard of some other folks who've known us since the beginning who can't fit it into their schedule & they live right here. I feel very blessed to have met so many amazing people along the way.
Let the party begin!
UPDATE: Because my girl Colleen walked in as another BIG HUNK'N surprise!
I could not be more thrilled & excited right now....this is going to be a FUN weekend!
