Welcome: Ever's Virtual Baby Shower!!!

I am the luckiest blogging 38 weeks pregnant girl...ever... because some of my bloggy friends have gotten together and decided to throw an online baby shower for Mr. Curry, myself and our baby-to-be, Ever Elizabeth!!!

I am thrilled !!! One way of participating is to leave a message for my family and I on my comment section, with whatever you'd like to say :) I will save those in print outs and put them in Ever's baby book!! How awesome, such a modern baby :)

We did have a real life baby shower, and were blessed with wonderful and useful and cute things, but like so many families we are struggling to make it paycheck to paycheck, and my disability leave is difficult, to say the least. The girls have set up a Donate button for my maternity fund, that goes straight to my Paypal account, as well as links to my registry at Babies R Us for the leftover things we don't have yet. I put the Paypal button on the top left of Flux Capacitor :)

This generous and thoughtful gathering of ladies below are hosting the shower, so go visit if you'd like to participate!!:

THREE Ms Moon---- Bless Our Hearts actual URL:

FOUR Mindy---- Petit Fleur's Adventures actual URL:

FIVE Stephanie----Unsweet Mama, actual URL:

I also registered at BabiesRUs for the remaining items we need:

  • BABIESRUS-- The account can be accessed by name: Maggie Ethridge or Registry #: 46171571

I cannot wait to read the messages from my online friends, and thank you SO MUCH to you ladies for thinking of this, Melinda for organizing it, and you all for participating. This is something so fun and so sweet and so happy for me to think about and enjoy right now, and it means so much to me. I love you guys!!!

i accidentally posted this early- the girls are posting tomorrow early morning :))) i just left it up because you know how blogger is, if you post something and then 'take it back' it still leaves your post up on the Blogger reader. so!

first to comment in the virtual baby book! hooray!
dear sweet baby ever,
here is something i know about your family:
they know how to love.
here is something i know about you:
you know how to pick the perfect family.
and here is something you might need to know later:
your mom and dad may not always be right. but they will always be right there. and they will always love you. and your sister and brothers are yours for life or longer. no matter what.

Elizabeth said...

I'm gonna steal that precious drawing and use it to introduce my post, too!

Dear Sweet Ever ~

May you always be fulfilled with knowing the happily EVER after resides peacefully in your soul.

Ms. Moon said...

Happy day, Maggie. I hope the love pours in and fills your heart and tickles your tummy.
Yours truly...Mary

Petit fleur said...

Dear Curry Family,

I wish you all much love and fun on your new adventure.

Welcome Ever Elizabeth, you've chosen well.

I leave you with this poem by Spike Milligan. It says perfectly what I cannot.

xoxo, your friend mindy

There is a song in man
There is a song in woman
And that is the child's song.
When that song comes
There will be no words.
Do not ask where they are.
Just listen to the song.
Listen to it-
Learn it-
It is the greatest song of all

I love this idea!

Happy Virtual Baby Shower to you!

All this little girl needs to do is read your blog and she'll see what an enchanting family she has been born into.

Annie said...

Dear Maggie,
You give so much in your daily interactions and in your writing, I'm happy to send Ever the gift of the beautiful bunny blanket you picked for your registry, along with virtual hugs and love. Joy to you and your family! Love, Annie

Jos said...

Dearest Darling Maggie,

Dear, dear Ever,

You are surrounded by such glorious love and it will hold you and protect you always no matter the fray of life. My favorite quote is one that has been attributed to Lao Tzu, and I share it here, because it says better than I can what I would want to tell you.

Knowing love,
I will allow all things to come and go
And be as supple as the wind.
Life is right in any case
My heart is open as the sky.

May your heart always be open, little one, so that all the love that is here for you can flow in, and in.

Blessings always.

Maggie May said...

These comments are making my morning :)))

miss annie said...

Drax said...

Hunh. No beer here, either.

Stephanie said...

That is so nice of everyone!! I never heard of a virtual baby shower but it's sweet

Marion said...

Dearest Maggie: I sent you a little sumpin-sumpin through PayPal with my Yahoo account. I wish I could send Ms. Ever ten times that amount, but I live on a fixed income. May God richly bless you and your beautiful family. xo

Much Love & Buckets of Blessings,

How lovely! What a wonderful online community you are part of.

To Ever,
I only know your mother through her words, wise and passionate as they are. She speaks of you often - even before you were conceived, in fact! And there is so much love for you. Everyone, even us virtual types, is anticipating your arrival.
Many blessings to you for a long, healthy, passionate, joy-filled life.
xo Leigh

Happy Baby Shower Maggie. How fun. I wish I wasn't so broke. But I know you understand. Lucky lucky little girl coming into such a smart, loving, fun family....

~Amber Elise~ said...

This is such an an awesome idea!
You should expect a small gift from our family to yours in the next week or so.
Maggie, I am so excited for you and your family to welcome this precious gift into the physical world. You are a wonderful family that deserves the best this world has to offer.
Ever, you are coming into a world that is not always easy to navigate and yet you are lucky to have such a supportive family unit that will surround you with love and guidance. Take this world and make it yours, You are Blessed.

Sweet baby, I wish for you the deep love of family and friends, a creative spirit to help you move with whatever comes along your path, and a wide smile to warm the hearts of those you meet on your journey.

Maggie May said...

Thank you so much for the comments:)) Please anyone who has not left one and has been a friend here continue to leave them. I soak them up:) and will be happy to put them in Ever's baby book.

No beer Drax, unless you ask Mr. Curry ;_)

Sweet baby Ever,

I wish you a life of plenty - plenty of laughter and plenty of love. There's no doubt you'll find it in your beautiful family.

"So now, as my voice
burble-urps in your ear - with a bump-thumpy sound
that is not very clear -
the words I am saying
you hear in your heart,
and know that I wish you the very best start.

It's a scrumptulous world
and it's ready to greet you.
And as for myself...

I can't wait to meet you!"

I know I'm a little late, guess that's par for the course with me... I hope you don't mind, I posted a few words on my blog.
I wish you and your family so much happiness, Maggie, you all so deserve it.

Vodka Mom said...

Dear sweet soul,

you are incredibly lucky to be joining your amazing parents in this journey.

May you know kindness, and be kind.
May you know joy, and be joyful.
May you know compassion, and be caring.

And most of all, may you know love.

Allison the Meep said...

Sweet Ever, you are being born into so much love. More than anything else in your entire life, you will find that love is the most important thing. A great start to a beautiful life.

Hugs and kisses on your tiny forehead,

Kate Moore said...

Your folks kick ass. No, seriously they do. And when you're 16 and think they're lamo gamo, just remember they were 16 way, way, way before you and they got the goods on it, K? Whatever, they love you, loved you before you were even you. What's not to love about that. They gave you the benefit of the doubt even before they looked upon you. They were cheering for you even before you got to where you're going. They were there wishing the best, yellin' the loudest, pumpin' the air the hardest. For you.

I'm Katie. said...

I almost forgot my baby shower comment:

You have gone on a beautiful and widely shared. inpired journey. Lucky, loved, wonderful you!
