Well My shower has come and gone already, seems like yesterday we were planing it. It was beautiful, more than a daughter could ask for. I am going to download pics of how nice everything was set up on my page. I hope everyone who took pics of the guests send them to me, once the party started I was to busy to take more. It was fun being able to announce at the shower te gender of the baby too.

1 week 3 days til my shower, I am so excited! The set up is going to be beautiful, Mom went all out, can't wait to take pics too. WE aren't really playing any games but we are giving out party favors and do have prizes. The 3 things we are doing for prizes are 1. the birthday game, closest B-day to my due date wins a gift. 2. Mom had M & M's printed with a message and put in a baby bottle and the closest guess wins. 3. I will have each guest print their address on my Thank you card envelopes and I will pull two from a bag for winners. And at each table we are putting a sticker on the bottom of one plate. The person who sits in that spot wins the fresh flower centerpiece on the table to take home.

Was yesterday a tiring day for me! Not only do I have a cold but I was on my feet 5 hours straight and did a lot of driving. Went to work, then met Mom at Babies r Us to do my registry which took 2-1/2 hours, then we ran over to Party City for all the shower stuff, plates, napkins, etc. Then lunch with my sister than over to Toys R Us to pick up the crib I picked out, Babies didn't have it in stock, but My Mom went ahead and bought it for us, that was awesome. I got home late afternoon and fell asleep at 7 last night!

I have been thinking about my shower since I have had so many friends and relatives offer to throw it for me. It has come down to my Mom and SIL on husbands side, that way we can get both families together easier as we both come from big families, my friends wouldn't know where to start. So I went online to register items at 4 different places, not that I would use 4, I was just checking them out. Well, my tips for you, don't do it online, do it in store at the last minute because 1. They don't have the same items available online and in the store. 2. They rotate items too often, which makes no sense to me as they should stay in stock for at least 9 months! 3.Several things I chose on line then saw in the store were much more than I actually needed. For example The travel systems they have available, the car seats are good, but the strollers are huge and complicated, I just wanted a simple fold up stroller to use when I go for a walk. But to each his own, it is just best to really research for your individual needs. I am having my shower in November because of the holidays and January may be too late. So I will go register right before the invites get mailed.
From what I hear my Mother is going all out for the shower, with fancy tablecloths and fresh cut flowers as centerpieces on each table, which she will give to one person at each table as a prize if their number is called, good idea! Well this is her first grandchild and possibly my one and only shower so she isn't putting any limits on it. I am so excited!
