Shower Summary

It’s early (6:15am) and at some point in the next few minutes, all of the dogs will wake up (because they’ll hear me up) and the day will get started. I just wanted to pop in first thing and say that I am, quite possibly, the luckiest woman on the face of the planet. My friend, Junkie, threw the best baby shower in the history of all baby showers. The food was great, the games were hysterical, and it all suited MrZ and I very well considering we are not your typical couple. The shower was held around the Alabama football game (which went VERY well, thank you GOD, MrZ was in the BEST mood) and I don’t know if it could have been possible for me to laugh harder than I did yesterday. I will try to post more details later but just in case I never do (ha!) I did want to stop in and just give you a quick summary.

  • We got everything we could possibly need for NikkiZ’s arrival. She is welcome to come any day now.
  • The more beer MrZ has had, the worse he is at silly shower games.
  • Beer is a great addition to any baby shower.
  • Baby showers when the boys are invited? Are more fun than when they’re not.
  • Infant jewelery makes me cry.
  • My in-laws are awesome.
  • My friends are awesome.
  • All of the kids who wrapped up the baby shower performing Love Shack on the karaoke machine are awesome.
  • My husband is awesome.
  • It IS possible for a pregnant woman to spend an entire afternoon laughing her ass off and not even ONCE pee on herself.
  • It is ALSO possible for that SAME pregnant woman to eat more food that should physically fit into her body and actually not spill ONE PIECE on herself.
  • I’m not sure what it says about me that in the game we played forming words from NikkiZ’s full name, I was the only one who resorted to using curse words.

I’ll post pictures and give more detail later, but my Bro-in-law’s girlfriend summed it up PERFECTLY when she said “That’s the first baby shower I’ve not gotten bored at.” And you know what? It lasted FOUR HOURS, so that’s saying quite a bit.

  1. Oh, come on… you expect us to believe you didn’t pee yourself? Surely you’re covering! hahahaha (just kidding)

    Sounds like an awesome day! I had my first real baby shower with my 5th pregnancy. And it was thrown by my internet friends. Several drove/flew to my town, many others sent gifts and attended “virtually”. It was AWESOME.

  2. Finally I am leaving a comment. I’m so excited for you, Can’t wait to see the pictures and hear the rest of the story. Makes you feel so much better when you have everything you need doesn’t it???? I’ll have to remember that beer goes good with a baby shower the next time I have a baby.

  3. That’s great, Missy. This is the first shower I ever heard of where the boys were invited. And now that I think of it, it makes perfect sense. Someone there is very wise, indeed.

  4. I love “Jack and Jill” showers. It’s not like daddies aren’t involved with their kids, especially good ones like MrZ, so why shouldn’t they get to come to the party? πŸ™‚ And as long as there’s other boys (and beer, apparently) it shouldn’t be strange for them πŸ™‚

  5. Aww I am so happy for you. I am glad it was such a success. Somehow showers do make you feel more prepared and also they remind you how many people you have around you to love you and support you.

  6. Girl, we just rock……..I don’t think it’s even possible for us not to make something the best it can be, right? It’s just in our nature. πŸ™‚

  7. I got the notify thingy, seems to work ok.

    And that nursery is so preeeeetty without being so girly-pink generic. I love it πŸ™‚
