Sharing soul sister Monica's blog entry on the sooooper surprise baby shower they threw me last week...i was an eager beaver to be the guinea pig to a pre-natal yoga class that was her bait to get me to Beyond Yoga on that hot Friday afternoon...i walked from Serendra in my cut-up FLOW tee and tights, waddling like a duck:P and the frist person i saw in the studio was Joyce Makitalo and asked her if she was preggy too:P then Monica pops out and screams SURPRISSSEEEEE!! :O and the first thing i say is--- IM NOT DRESSED!! :P hahaahah!! was a small intimate party with sweaty zumba dancing and samba colors! was soooo kilig to have friends do that for me!! Felt uber special! Just what i needed :P Love you gals-- even the ones that weren't there but i felt them in spirit! :*
My yummymummy soul sister and super Sambista, Denise is 8 months pregnant. What do awesome friends do at this time - throw her a SURPRISE baby shower!

Artist extraordinaire, Noelle Hilario gave the idea of using Samba/Brazil colors for the theme of the party. I suggested that we do a Zumba party so that everyone can have fun while working a sweat (always a good thing!) with everyone.
So the fabulous plan was to invite Dee to a (fake) prenatal yoga class at Beyond Yoga. I even got another preggy mum to help me make her believe there really was a free trail session by a new foreign teacher that we are trying out (Thanks for playing along, Pam!)! Dee was so excited about the hoax, that I didn't have to worry until we were ALL running late. I had to let her know to come 30 minutes later than scheduled because the "fake prenatal yoga teacher" isn't ready yet.

Yes, it was a success! Denise was genuinely surprised and fell for our plan :)
