My baby shower observation!

This morning I went to my friend Wendy's baby shower!

It was so much fun.

I literally did not know a soul barely. In situations like this I can go into my shell and sit back and observe, but I actually ended up making conversation with a few people there and they were so incredibly sweet and it ended up just being a really wonderful time.

Lame, but these are the only pictures I got.

Me and the mom-to-be.

Don't mind my hair. You might also recognize Wendy from the well-known Christian rock band Fireflight :)

The food table with yummy food.

This is her first baby and the cool thing is they are not finding out the sex. So it will be a complete surprise (obviously, ha). She got sooooo many wonderful gifts.

Yeah, my camera was dead so just got these quick photos with my phone.

This is the gift I got Wendy.

I had this signed made by Jennifer for the nursery. She has an Etsy store "Show Me A Sign". Go check it out. Plus all the proceeds benefit her future adoption. I've also had her make another sign for me and I have not been disappointed. She's just great and so wonderful to work with.

Sooooo... If any of you have ever been to a baby shower you know about the game where you are given a clothes pin and you can't say certain words, and if someone hears you or you hear them, you can take the clothes pin from them and whoever ends up with the most at the end of the shower wins.

Well, observation... there is always, and I mean always, that one person that takes this game WAY to seriously. Like for real, that one person that literally is just sitting there on the edge of their set waiting for someone to mess up and ends up with like 11 at the end.

We couldn't say baby or the word cute. And nevertheless, I was without clothes pin at the end, ha! It was actually quite liberating when I lost the battle of the clothes pin... how can you not want to say baby and cute at a time like that. And once I lost that sucker I tried saying baby and cute whenever I could really loud so she could hear me, ha! Oh, I kid. But what made me laugh is the person who took it from me and was VERY serious about this had like 11 clothes pins and she was just dying to win, but someone beat her by one clothes pin.

She should have won just for her efforts alone. Quite a shame really.

I love baby showers! That clothes pin game is so much fun - but I agree with you that it's nice when you finally lose so you don't have to bother thinking about what you can and can't say. :)

I love baby showers especially since I don't have any babies so it is my time to indulge in some maternal instinct pleasure. This looks like it was so much fun! And I love the sign you gave her as a gift. Very cute!

Oh that's so funny! You know, I've been to millions of baby showers and I've never noticed that there really is that one person who HAS to win that game. Just gotta laugh at them. Whta did he win? Like a $2 candle or something? lol.

Rosie said...

Oops..what did *she* win? Obviously not he.

Glad you had a good time! And yes, I've been there about the people who take games to seriously...
