Baby Shower!

I have awesome friends, who threw me this awesome baby shower! I was kind of a pain about it because I didn’t tell anyone I was pregnant for a very long time, for a multitude of reasons. So my friends couldn’t send out invites until I did. I didn’t want anything super gendered, I didn’t want baby games, I didn’t want to have to open presents. One of my friends said he went to a co-ed baby shower and all the women opened presents while the men watched TV. I didn’t want that.

The shower was scheduled for September, and I finally made a Facebook post announcing things, and then went on vacation for a week so the excitement would die down before I got back.

And my awesome friends (Janine, Meredith, and Katie) surprised me with a theme they knew I would love – Halloween! Also they put out the ton of Micky and Minnie ears they had and let people wear fun hats – Doug and I got Janine and Ron’s pirate hats.
