it’s a girl!

June 1, 2009

we got back from the baby shower about an hour ago and i’m exhausted! here’s a quick recap…


we ran into some heavy rainfall on the drive, but thankfully most of it cleared up by the time we arrived. for the most part, it was a nice day to be sitting out on a deck.

for lunch, i had a cheeseburger and some salad. i ate the burger open faced and only ate half the bun. i didn’t want this to be a “splurge” meal, but there weren’t many options so i did the best i could.




i sipped on this mojito malt drink while playing baby shower games. i rocked the guess the celeb baby game 🙂

and then the gifts were opened…



i split a small brownie with tom after a riveting game of baby gift bingo. we had to fill in bingo boxes with potential gifts and then crossed the correct ones off as the gifts were opened. since i’m totally clueless when it comes to babies, i had a lot of trouble thinking of enough baby stuff to fill an entire bingo grid. one of my guesses was “baby bouncy thingie.” sad, right? this was also my first baby shower. tom said this was his third. i find that interesting because i always thought of showers as a girl thing.

after the gifts were opened, the cake was finally cut. finally, because it was probably 6PM and not only was i hungry again, but i had been eying the cake for the last two hours! hmm…what do you think? white or chocolate?



did you guess right?

i was starving, and my only other food choice was cheesecake (blech!) so i went back inside and asked for a second piece 🙂 this was met with approval as people are always trying to get rid of cake. why is that?


🙂 yum!

we helped the couple bring their gifts home and sat at their place for a while before heading to tom’s parents for a quick visit.

i had an apple and barney butter in the car.


as great as the cake was, two slices of cake does not a dinner make. i didn’t have any other choice though! even though it’s past 1AM now, i’m going to fix myself a small bite to eat because i have an awful sugar headache that isn’t going away! i can never truly enjoy mass quantities of dessert because i always get a headache afterward! does anyone else suffer from this?

well, i’m definitely looking forward to some whole grains and veggies tomorrow! i’ll see you on monday!

    I think it’s hard for people to eat cake in moderation. Either they can’t just have a whole piece and find a team to share or they must have it all. I get headaches/tummyaches too if I have extra sweets.

    It looks like you had fun at the baby shower 🙂 I think they’re funny bonding experiences.

    I usually don’t get sugar headaches from desserts. Sometimes I do if I eat to much cheap candy though. No fun. I occasionally will eat a dessert for a meal. Not the best idea, but not a problem if it’s only occasional.

    I think you did a good job of enjoying the shower and not going crazy. An extra piece of cake won’t kill you, and really, how often do you eat cake?! It looks so good, I would have had a hard time not having twice what you did!
