Planning a Baby Shower

My ovaries are hurting, like, OMG! all this baby stuff is just too much! I was in Target today and if it had not of been for low funds in my checking account, I think I would have bought out the whole department. The pacis! They have a million choices now and for someone who didn’t give it up for a long time (the threat of Santa not coming that year is what made me give it up, like Christmas Eve, not even a few weeks before. )

Then the boppy covers. They are so cute. And the onsies. Seriously? Could have scooped up a few dozen and still would have found more. The socks were so stinking cute and of course the bibs. I wish I could remember where I got R’s from because they were these thick terry cloth bibs that she loved. The soaked up everything, can’t find them now.

Of course I need to pick up diapers for the diaper cake. I got it in my head that I could make one just as easily as buying one (and much cheaper that way) so I have enlisted a friend to help me, just need to remember to pick up a platter at Party City to put it on. And get plates and stuff there. Oh and that reminds me, I need to figure out drinks. I love those sherbet, ginger ale punches but I don’t have a recipe for that.

And games? Are those really necessary? My friend doesn’t care and I really don’t like the diaper tasting game because it just kind of grosses me out. Any of you have cute games that aren’t too cutesy that might work?

I am pulling out the ole Magnolia Bakery cookbook. That is something that I can do with my eyes closed. Now the fondant that I will be using on top of the icing? Well, that is a whole nother story! LOL! I love using it but sometimes my idea in my head doesn’t translate all that well to the fondant. Oops!

Anyway, I am in full party planning mode for this and working on my big event at work. Only six weeks (approx.) left until that event and I am scared silly thinking I am going to fall flat on my face. Here’s to some really productive time at the office going forward.


What you see is what you get; I am a Nashville girl who is single, again. I use the blog to get my inner, tortured, wanna be writer angst out. One day I just may write a book. I have been stumbling through life for 43 years now, I love to cook, read and figure out more embarrassing ways I can either harm myself (thank you hula hoop of 2010 and the case of the thrown back) or just prove how inept I am at household chores and dieting. The people you read about on here are real but most have had their names changed to protect the innocent and not so innocent. And I really should make a list of them so I can remember! Enjoy, read, mock, laugh and comment, it really isn't difficult. Plus, I would prefer reading comments from real people as opposed to the weird spam comments I keep getting. Plus, I will always find the hardest path to follow and take that one, why would anyone want to take the easy way?!
