Shower (Also, am I the only girl who hates 'em?)

I have to be honest with ya'll.  I despise showers.  Really, they give me the nerve so bad.  I had a surprise lingerie shower at a bar in New Orleans on my bach, and a couples tool shower which was more of a casual engagement party, because I refused to have more.  Because I don't like them.

Now that my rant is out of the way, here's pics from the lovely baby shower we threw this weekend for my friend, ALE who is expecting a baby in December.  One of the other hostesses, Veaz, has a shower in 2 weeks, and is also expecting in December.  It's contagious I suppose.  Maybe I should start wearing a mask.


Here's the delish spread.

I am so impressed with LAM's arrangements- I need to take my Mama's advice and take a flower arranging class.

We had 2 dessert stands of large yummy petit fors.  Tip of the day- if you live near an university, please check with their bakery for good deals- we had 40 of these for $26!!!!


Jules, MC, and MC's mom, CM.  MC is ready to have some boyfriends when these December babies are born.

Peg, my workout buddy, and myself.  Do you notice how I look like a deer in headlights?  Thank goodness for adrenaline.


MOH and me.  She was feeling my pain herself.  However, as she was just hungover, and not a hostess, she left early.  I'm not jealous or bitter at all.


The beautiful mama to be, ALE, opening gifts.

ALE and Veaz with their big ole bellies.  Folks, I am not ready for this quite yet.

The shower was a great time though, even for a very serious shower-hater.  It was beautiful, and everyone loved the scones!  If anyone wants the recipe, let me know!

  3. Love the flowers. I totally know what you mean about it catching- at one point this summer I had five pregnant friends.

  4. For someone who doesn't like showers, you did a fabulous job with the spread! Fabulous flowers! I only like showers that don't have games - just go straight to the bubbly, food and gifts. There ya go.

  5. That was a gorgeous shower! I would love the scone recipe! Will you post it or email it to me? I have a bunch of (dreaded)showers coming up and need all the help I can get! No games and I can get through a shower. Games= awkward.

  7. You're not the only one! They were gorgeously decorated and the flowers are stunning I must say!

    I have nominated you for a blog award! Yay! When you get a mo, stop by and pick it up! :)

  8. Those hydrangeas are so beautiful (and some of my favorite flowers). Flower arranging would probably be a really fun class.

    I kind of agree about showers. I mean, I don't mind watching someone open gifts and have cake or whatever, but please no awkward games!

  9. I do not like showers at all! People are invited to parties to bring gifts and then spend the whole time watching a person open those gifts while everyone else talks about that person. When I had my bridal shower I was so nervous. I felt sick to my stomach the whole time.
