I have a friend who has 2 boys. One is 12 and the other is 9. She is now pregnant with a little girl.
My hubby is friends with her hubby. This is the only couple we have in common.
This may be weird to some of you but most of my husband’s friends are single and most of my friends, well, I don’t have any other friends in the area.
So when my friend was around 5 mths pregnant, I asked her if anyone was throwing her a baby shower.
That is how I became the host of her baby shower on Saturday.
I had everything planned out but being the perfect procrastinator that I am, I still had tons to do.
Friday I left work a little early and headed to the store. I had to buy food and drinks for the party.
Once I got back home, I recruited Lael to help me put the gift boxes together.
I rewarded her with candy. She easy like that.
Saturday was a marathon.
It was the Super Sonics last soccer game.
It was also in the 30s.
We froze but we won.
Lael didn’t score a goal but played good defense.
After the game we walked across the field and the kids were given cupcakes and their trophies.
It was the ghettoest awards ceremony I’ve ever seen.
Usually we have a big ceremony at the youth center with all of the teams and we have pizza and cake.
(Apparently now that the Navy has taken over our base things are done differently.)
After the “ceremony” we headed back home but not before stopping at a community yard sale.
I scored brand new baby walking shoes for $2 and a few brand new baby toys for Kobi. Lael was able to get some stick thing for free.
We then made it home where I proceeded to make lasagna, green beans, fruit salad and Carlota’s Perfect Punch minus a few things.
Me and Lael gathered all of our games and headed down the street to set up.
The baby shower was a success.
We played “Guess What’s In The Diaper” and “Dress the Baby (with a partner using 1 hand each)”.
Fun was had by all.
I didn’t get out of there until after 8pm.
I went home and collapsed in bed.
I woke up yesterday with the mother of all headaches.
That was an excuse for me to stay in my pjs and on the couch catching up on my DVR.
I’m thankful that this is a short week, though I’m a little disappointed that the holiday in on a Thursday rather than Friday.
I mean what’s the point?
