On Saturday we hosted a couples baby shower for our good friends Brad and Chessa.
Each time I host a shower or event I think to myself, "I am going to take really good pictures of all of the activities, food, and decorations and put them on Pinterest."
Then, the actual day comes and I realize that in between cursing in front of Ina while hanging up the streamers (those twirls don't come easy)
to running out of brisket (I don't think that has ever happened to me before)
to Ina crying when anyone else would hold her (I thought she was over that?)
I quickly dismissed the idea of having a Pinterest-worthy party and instead tried to have one that didn't suck. (I know, I set such high goals.)
We didn't have any games - I don't know if the boys would have been down with that.
Instead, our one "activity" (other than eating) was painting wooden letters of the alphabet to hang in the baby's nursery.
It was a blast.
Afterwards we all took pictures with our letter, to make the baby's first alphabet book!
One of the first things this kid will learn in how crazy Dan is.
What Dan doesn't know is that was supposed to be the "u" not the "n". Bahaha.
Now that the shower is over, I can't wait for that baby to get here!
A few other weekend highlights:
- Sunday we went to church, which I was so thankful for. The message was on time management and I feel like I should listen to it at least once a week.
- We visited my grandma - who has transfered from a hospital to a long-term rehab center.
She is doing much better and even (slowly, but surely) walking on her own for a few seconds.
My sister and her kids stopped by at the same time we did, so we took over the dining room.
- We watched the latest Batman movie, which I thought was great, and a perfect distraction to Ina's sobs. We are trying to sleep train her, but so far she has just been sleep training us.
Have a great week! <3
