Felicia's Pre-Party

They say you can't spoil a baby, but what about a fetus? If you can, Felicia's done been spoilt!! I had my baby shower on Saturday and this kid made out like a bandit. In addition to all the great must-have items she received like washcloths, monitors, and diaper rash cream, she also got a ton of fun stuff like a frilly swimsuit, two handmade blankets/quilts, and some great onesies! Thanks to all the ladies who came and spent the afternoon watching me open presents and eat cake!

And a special thanks to the hostesses (above) who made the day so special for Felicia and me! A word of advice to any other preggos out there trying to enlist friends to host their shower: When 2/3 of the hostesses are pregnant, you're going to have an awesome party with some killer food. Who else but a pregnant lady would special order guacamole or spend the morning carving a watermelon into a baby-buggy? The non-preggo did a pretty good job as well coming through with an Emporium cake complete with buttercream frosting. Way to go Jen, Aly and Carrie!! And if you're also looking for something for your husband to do during your special afternoon, have him host a barbecue for his buddies with the admission price being a pack of diapers. That's how Shawn spent his Saturday and, not only did he have a good time with his friends and catch a pleasant buzz, but I came home to a house FULL of diapers! (And beer cans, and potato chip crumbs, and 1/2 eaten brats, but it was worth it!) With the first taste of spring weather FINALLY arriving on Saturday, it was a win-win for all of us. What a great day!

Um, I brought cheesy hashbrown casserole. I don't believe in diapers as a gift. They encourage shitting in public.

(lol- sorry... having computer issues. I'm the "deleted" comment above!)

I'm still really impressed with the diaper haul the cookout produced! So glad you enjoyed your shower! Jen and Carrie are a dream to plan a party with. Do we need another reason to get together again, or can we just eat?!?!?
