Who doesn't love a good surprise?!?

The first weekend of January - 16 of us descended upon New York City to give our friend Jenny a surprise she certainly was not expecting!

Jenny is getting married in Chicago the first weekend of February (she lives in Stamford, CT one short train ride from NYC) and gave clear direction she didn't want a bachelorette party.  So it started as a few of us who missed her shower in Chicago deciding it would be fun to come to NYC to do a small shower.  Then it quickly evolved into a girls weekend that NO ONE wanted to miss.

You see - Jenny is that person - we all have one - selfless, giving, supportive and wouldn't miss an opportunity to support you.  So it should come as no surprise that given the chance to do something good for a great person - everyone stepped to the plate. 

Here are some pictures from the night - I'd like to note that I made it out until 3:30 AM and only wish I had taken a picture when our cab on the drive back to Harz's apartment got a flat and kicked us out - haha! 

Fabulous weekend with fabulous friends!!

Some of the shower goodies!

Waiting patiently (or not so patiently) - it felt like the longest walk from Grand Central to Harz's apartment


Our friend Marla got a nasty bug and was headed to London after the girls weekend so against her better judgement - made the mature decision to stay home and rest up for her work trip.  She got to be there for the surprise via Skype.  Missed you Champ!

After the shower - a fun night out was planned and included tapas, sangria, dancing, shots and some amazing music!

Connor got to spend his fabulous weekend with Grandma and Grandpa Paulsrud but I find no evidence of pictures on camera's here - perhaps Grandma P has some she'll share and I'll update.
