Saturday was the baby shower. All the planning, printing off of games, prepping and shopping and it lasted about 2 hours, and didnt have a big turnout.
Maybe 16 in all.
Which sorta upset me, because I have gone to enough showers for friends kids and bridal showers for friends kids and have gotten invites where I have gone out and bought gifts.
At what point do you just stop????
I am currently invited to 2 bridal showers, followed of course by the weddings, and a product party.
I have no intention of attending or buying gifts for any of these, I know it sounds childish, but all of these people were invited to the baby shower and not only did they not show, they didnt even drop off a gift.
Maybe they are feeling the same way as me, when is enough with buying gifts for other peoples babies, weddings, etc?
But there are a few who know they got a gift from me and didnt bother to reciprocate, its a shame people will do you dirty.
Rant over.
No Super Bowl party for me, I flipped back and forth and didnt even catch any of the commercials, I watched the Walking Dead marathon, I am a Peyton Manning fan, but not so much the Broncos, I had wanted him to go to Tennessee.
So, while I was hoping to see a better showing by the Broncos, I wasnt really bummed out by it.
Saturday after the baby shower, I went walking, yes, it was so warm and the sun was out.
I took a hoodie, but didnt even need it, it felt so so good with the sun on my arms and face.
I hadnt walked in weeks and so I was hoping to push it to 30 minutes, but the weather was so nice, I was so inspired by the kids playing basketball and riding bikes in the park, that I ended up walking a full hour.
Now, today, I woke to find my car and yard covered in ice.
It rained all night here and I have no plans to go out in this today.
I really cannot wait til the next pretty warm day.
And, back to the shower, after it was over, whatever food was left, I sent home with my son and his girlfriend, for their Super Bowl gathering, cupcakes and cookies and summer sausages and gerkins, etc.
I didnt eat a piece of cake or a cupcake.
I did pretty well thru it all.
Spring cant get here soon enough for me and my feet!!!

    Where's the snow in your pictures? We're getting a few inches today after 50s yesterday. I CAN'T WAIT FOR SPRING!!!

    Sorry your shower was a let down. Be the better person and let the people know you won't be attending their showers/weddings (no explanation needed) so they know how much food, etc. to buy.

    Hope we all see spring soon

    I'm hoping Spring weather will come along soon, too. I think that the groundhog seeing his shadow meaning 6 more weeks of winter is just a myth anyway. So here's to some warm sunshine! emoticon
