Warning: Some of the images you are about to see may be unsuitable for boys or anyone else who is uncomfortable with a few incredibly unpleasant terms

...accompanying childbirth... that's for you Mom. (My mom thinks it should be left in the hospital for good--- what, six times left you with some bad memories? (my title was too long to fit in the title field. Pfft.)









Tip to look like Melissa while large with child: bold shoes with classic outfit. How cute is she?

It really should not be this hard to turn the camera around on yourself, but apparently I have a hard time with it.








Functional gal. Diaper/wipe shower, made shopping easy peasy.









So this past Saturday I had the honor of hosting a baby shower at my house. Lizzie threw it, but since she was mid-move (they just moved to a new GORGEOUS house in the heart of town, much farther from us, but still in the desert, so it's going to be ok... I guess...), she had it at my house instead. Fun for me! I got to have a fun party with a bunch of fun girls at my house with really, none of the work.

So leave it to Lizzie to force everyone to loosen up real quick. Instead of famous people (or whatever the game usually uses) we had preg. and baby related terms stuck to our foreheads until we guessed them using yes or no questions to our neighbor. Some of us couldn't stop laughing long enough to answer any questions. Especially for poor Holly.


For that, Holly, I'll share one of your cuter than cute bum. Don't you have like FOUR kids? Wowsers.

You seriously immortalized my buttox?! That's a first for me ;)! You and Lizzie threw a beautiful shower. I had such a great time.

Lillie! Wow I am so glad I found your blog. I have not seen you since your bridal shower in Provo. Your girls are so stinkin' cute I can hardly stand it, and you look fabulous as usual. Where in the "desert" are you lving? we live in Tempe. So good to see you, even if it was only in the cyber world :)

And I would like to be invited over for a shower. You make it look so lovely and everyone looks like they smiled and laughed the whole time. They probably did.

I love the pictures!!! Thank you for posting the bum shot... now when Holly complains of not losing all her baby weight, I can refer to that great picture! You just made my life easier :)

Megan said...

Oh. SO Fun. Wish I was there to join in. I miss all you fun girls...
Such cute pics and it sounds like it was a fun shower. I think I might steal that idea for my sisters shower. SMILE

A little bit of crazy.... said...

This comment is unrelated to your obviously fun party. I hit your blog awhile ago and have been coming back for your playlist...you know, just listening. I finally copied some of your songs for my own playlist. Just wanted to send you a "thanks a bunch!"

episiotomy. Let that never ever be a word in my vocab again. Love seeing you with all your friends. Hate that we're not throwing baby showers for each other.
