My weekend was filled to the brim with babies!
Saturday was Andy’s cousin Melissa’s baby shower. She’s due in September and is having a boy.
The shower’s theme was “A Star is Born”, which I though was so cute.
The room was filled with lots of decor that matched the star theme, including these delicious homemade cookies and cake pops:
During the shower we played a few games including baby bingo and guessing the baby pictures of celebrities.
My love for trashy reality TV and celebrity gossip came in handy (for once) and I got most of them right!
For each correct answer you got you earned a raffle ticket for a prize auction. I put my tickets into numerous prize options that were available:
I was feeling lucky on Saturday and my name was drawn three times! I only accepted one prize though, which was a basket of books. I can’t wait to get started on some new novels!
A party would not be a party without food. And Andy’s family never disappoints in the food department! We had an assortment of goodies including Lobster Bisque (my favorite), sandwiches, potato salad, pasta salads, pin wheels, fruit, and desserts.
It was a great baby shower and I’m happy I got to be a part of it.
Baby Sitter’s Club
On Sunday Andy’s sister-in-Law, Lindsay, and his parents were volunteering at an event and his brother had to work. That meant that Andy and I were the last resort to baby sit. With no experience in the baby department, Andy and I went into the situation having no clue what to expect. We certainly would not have been members of the Baby Sitter’s Club!
When we arrived, little Claire was taking a nap. The day was off to an uneventful start (which I certainly appreciated!)
Andy and I settled in at his brother’s house and began watching some TV. But before we knew it, Claire was up and ready to play!
Claire loved this toy and bounced her little heart out:
She also enjoyed playing with her fury sibling, Buddy:
After playing for a bit and eating, she was ready for another nap:
She ended up napping three times while Andy and I were there. Baby’s are so sleepy (although I could have used a nap too!)
It was a fun day and I’m glad Andy and I got to experience our first baby sitting job together! What a team we made 🙂
Wednesday I’m leaving again for another vacation, although this one will be a bit shorter. Andy and I are going to San Diego, California for my good friend Sam’s wedding. I can not wait! Sam and I were roommates in college and sorority sisters. A lot of our college friends will be attending as well and it’s going to be a great little reunion! Now I just need to focus on my work today and tomorrow (which is not easy! I’m so excited) and soon enough it will be party time!
Have you been to San Diego? If so, what is a “must see” there?
