The baby shower was a great success! We actually had 16 people and the house and the food were both amazing. I must say though, I’m glad it’s over.
Wade and Neal got in at 2AM. They decided to drive through the night. Once they got settled, it took me a while to get back to sleep. So, I was up until about 4:30. I woke up at 7AM to finish prep for the shower. Right at 9AM, I ran to Target to get some ice and a little something extra for the shower. When I came home Kristen and Lisa had just pulled up in my driveway. As I was trying to pull into the garage, I knocked my driver’s side mirror off because I hit it on the house. If you’re counting, that’s 3 times!!! UGHHHH!
We had crab quiche, bacon and spinach quiche and another kind that was vegetarian along with mixed salad and fruit with poppy seed dressing. It was spectacular. Lisa made a spinach artichoke dip and I made apple and cranberry brie with a bunch of muffins and banana nut bread. I thought I had bought plenty of champagne, but 30 minutes into it, I had to make an emergency run to the liquor store for more. We ended up going through 10 bottles. That’s quite impressive for a Saturday morning. Anyway, since my car was blocked in the garage, I had to take Kristen’s mini-van. I’m sure people on the road thought a soccer mom was having a psychotic episode with the way I was driving…LOOK OUT, FOLKS! I’VE GOT A BABY SHOWER/CHAMPAGNE EMERGENCY!!!
Once I returned, we ate and opened gifts. Courtney got the cutest stuff. We all just sat around and talked for a while before we tried to take a group photo. Poor Nellie had been upstairs with the dogs all morning, but we needed his help and he obliged. That brave man came down and took our picture!!! What a lifesaver?!? I can’t wait to see it.
After the shower, I cleaned up the party and we all took a nappy nap. I’m still looking for bed tonight and a restful day tomorrow.
