I love Showers.....Baby Showers that is!

This weekend, we loaded up the car and took a road trip to Charlotte, NC for Julie's baby shower. I didn't take as many pictures as I would have liked, but I have a few. Hopefully, I will be sent a few more and can share those as well.

Here is a shot of some of the presents.

The decorations. If you look very closely, you can see that the silverware is tucked into baby socks. Such a great idea! So, not only were the decorations adorable, but she got about 4 sets of socks!

This present was in a giant laundry basket. There was a sign on the top that said something about pulling out slowly. It was a giant clothesline.

Is this not the cutest idea? I am totally stealing this for my next shower present.

Ms. Momma opening presents. I am so excited to meet Ms. Audrey.

Abby napped through 90% of the shower.

As I knew that she would be into everything. I was completely right. This bag contained a giant stuffed pig.

Abby fell right in!

A few blogs that I read recently posted some pet peeves, so I thought I would share some of my current ones.
  • Jesse James - I just got done reading the People article about Sandra Bullock. What a freaking loser he is. If you feel the need to cheat on your spouse, at least have the nerve to divorce/leave them first. Cheating is for cowards. Plus, there are not many step "ups" than Sandra Bullock.
  • ReRuns - I have said this before, but I am so irritated that the prime time shows are not new every week (ahem....Desperate Housewives). I work every week, why can't you?
  • Buyers - Buy MY house!
  • Bathrooms with no changing tables - I cannot tell you how many bathrooms we stopped at this weekend that had no changing tables. Mostly gas stations, but also fast food joints. I should just change her on the table in the middle of the place, that would teach them.
  • High School Reunions - I just got my invite for my 10th. $40 a person...say what? I would love to spend $80 to see people that I didn't keep in touch with for 10 years for a reason. Ugh, I will probably go anyway though.

I automatically mark restaurants off my list that dont have changing tables. No changing table makes things quite stressful!

I didn't want to go to my reunion...neither did John; but we were both glad that we went.

P.Diddy is a nickname for my dad. Kinda like people call your dad "Big". And, I still cannot believe that I am watching DWTS - I feel much older than I am.

Got your comment. Colt has cut out a nap; he is almost taking none! He is so so exhausted by bed time but still won't go to bed. We finally just let him cry tonight. He couldnt even hold his head up. After about ten minutes, he finally went to sleep. It was brutal but at least he is peacefully sleeping right now.

DWTS is pure hype. I'll bet Kate and Pamela stay until the very end. Why would you care to watch anyone else.
