Sparkfam, it's official, I made it to the baby shower of my nephew! You don't know what this means?! It means, I got up from my long nap after shopping & getting a car wash & taking my son to Saturday tutoring. Then came home to fix me & my son breakfast of scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, grits & a pancake for me. Then the hubs comes in & says all that food is making me hungry can you make me something? Seriously? Well I am still taking care of him so I obliged. I took a two hour nap & then kept finding reasons not to go. Finally my son says are we still going? I got dressed & said at least I will drop him off the $100 in a card. Got there & they hadn't even opened gifts! The shower started at 2pm, I didn't get there til 6:30pm! They have such a big family, friends & co-workers that presents weren't done til 8pm! UGH! I am a house potato meaning that once I'm home I am not going back out. So I am taking baby steps to get back out there in the social world once and again. It was fine I didn't eat much, at lunch time at home I had ice cream, salsa & chips. Then had a jello shot for those of you who don't know those little puppies have alcohol in them & ALOT! I had to step out to compose myself & they were drinking them like they were going out of style. Not me, I know just a touch of alcohol will intoxicate me so I didn't do but 2more during the entire time I was there. Then I called it one we said our goodbyes & I was so touched to get out & be with my extended family & get all those hugs & kisses & just laugh & have a good time. With so many woman there of course there had to be drama. One girl said "baby" by mistake & so the other woman wanted her safety pins. It's a game you play at those type of things. They were arguing even after the host gave everyone a gift. Seriously! It was a mess & it was such a nice shower & they pulled out all the stops. The to-go-bags were avon products, girl scout cookies & popcorn. I didn't give bags for my daughter when I threw her one. That was one I forgot though. I did grab a burger on the way home but I only ate half & ate 10fries.
Long story short even though there was food all around & drinks, I didn't go all crazy. I didn't get on the treadmill or do my sit ups. I took the day off & I guess I needed it but I didn't go over on my calories either. I pray you all had a wonderful Saturday & good night!
God bless Sparkfam!
