Hey! Sorry, I've been so tired! Getting things ready made me very sleepy! My friend and I were up until about 5am the morning of the shower just making centerpieces. I put her to work weather she liked it or not. The shower went pretty well, not as many people came as I thought would, but some other girl in this small town decided to get married that day also. I mean, she seriously planned her wedding in 2 weeks, not kidding. So a lot of people were attending that. This shower was for my friends and family and DH's fam is having another at the end of the month for their side which I'm fine with. We went and picked up the cake and chicken yesterday before the shower, which my mom and grandma paid for.... My friend coplained the whole weekend about money. It is really starting to get old. I asked my grandma to pay for some because I was sick of hearing about $. Another girl even gave my friend half on the snacks, etc, which only came out to cost $40. So really, my friend was out $20-$30. She works 2 jobs like I said before and I have no clue where she spends on her money, but whatever. My best guy friends girlfriend decided to help out and she pretty much took over which was good. Ifit hadn't been for her, it would have sucked. But we had fun, played some games, one of my friends who called me that morning didn't even bother to show up even though she had some of the prizes for the games, etc. Which pretty much made me mad since she called like an hour before and said she was indeed coming. Anyways, I got lots of cute things. Lots and lots of bath stuff! 2 cute little robes, washcloths, towels, etc, about 3 packs of bottles, some outfits, nightgowns, a diaper genie II, and my friends who threw the shower all went in on my ba__sinet. I'm sure I got other stuff, and I already had some stuff sent to me from people who couldn't make it. But we did pretty good. People couldn't stop bragging about the cute centerpieces that we made. I'll post pics on the piczo site later, but that's pretty much it for now! It went about as good as expected! I'm sure the next shower will be a little better since my sister in law is planning it all and demands that I not get involved because SHE wants to do it all! She won't even let her mom help! LOL That's a relief because I am not going to get stressed about another shower again! lol

Wow, looks like you had someone unexpected save your shower, too! I'm glad it turned out well. Can you give me the piczo address? I haven't seen any of the November mommies' pictures. We had chicken, too. We also had to pick up the chicken and cake right before the shower, LOL. Looks like our showers have alot in common! I'm glad, though at how it turned out for you. I bought the original Diaper Genie because I like the idea of the twisty part separating the diapers. Let me know how you like the II version.

Yeah we did have similar showers! lol I forgot to mention (and this pretty much upset me), my friend who was supposed to be over the shower... well... I found out that she is helping with another shower... she voluntarily said "Lat me help with whatever I can" and it's for a girl that she really isn't that good friends with. I mean when I say not good friends... this other girl.. she slept with my friends ex bf while they were together... so not too good of a friend! But she's helping with her shower and then she complained about mine? I don't get it... I've known her for probably 15 years and we've been best friends through the whole time. Ugh. whatever. ANYWAYS... I asked for the Diaper Genie II because I read reviews and heard that the 1st one is hiorrible. I;ve never used the thing. My SIL said to take it back because they both suck, but I'm going to find out for myself! I need something in the babys room anyways to throw diapers in. I have trashcans downstairs, so why not have the diaper genie? It was a gift anyways! The piczosite is novembermommies.piczo. com I'll update mine later when I load these pics :-)

Oh yeah, Mrs. Steve, and you are the one who gave me the idea to get chicken. My friend had planned to make sandwhiches, but I said, get chicken instead, it'll be about the same price but easier on us all!
