It is really hard to surprise me, really hard. Ask Lucas or my parents, anytime around my birthday or Christmas the snooping and the questions start. There are two ways I find out what people are getting me, I either find out with my snooping, or I question them to death that they finally give in and tell me what they got me. Hahaha. I know its not one of my greatest qualities, but I can't help it; I need to know what is going on! That is what surprised me most about this surprise baby shower; I was actually SURPRISED!
Even though I have only been with my hula halau for just under a year, they really know what the term "hula sister' means. From the first practice they have taken me in like I have been there for years. This whole surprise shower started off with me thinking that my hula sister Nani wanted to have Lucas and I over for lunch to meet their newest dog and to see their new lanai that they built. Looking back on it now, I should have known that something was up when Lucas shaved that morning and said that I should try to look "presentable" for this lunch.
When we got there I was surprised to tears and had a wonderful afternoon eating, playing games and decorating onesies. The star of the show wasn't a game, present or an activity; it was the chocolate fountain! We all huddled around the machine dipping everything from strawberry to lady fingers in the chocolate. Halfway through the shower they added a little kahlua to "start the party," which is where I got cut off from the fun. We were blessed with more presents for the baby and were overwhelmed by all the love and support from my hula sisters!
