Today was the first of 4 showers in the next two weeks (only one of which I'm hosting :O)). All went well, it was a shower at the school, so it's very low key (a new term I'm letting resonate in my head), AND.....hold the applause because if you know me, you will be shocked to know-I was able to recycle things I had used in previous showers (How's that sign looking, Kelly?), sooooo food/invites/plates etc were the only thing that needed to be purchased (expensive for 50 people, but NOTHING compared to the 'olden days'), how's that for turning over a new leaf? The menu was cupcakes with little 'tin star' toppers, lemonade (look family, Nicole?) and trail mix (in buckets and bags on the tables, along with crayons and butcher paper, everyone went to town coloring). Guest signed boots and we made a wreath for Gretchen to hang on her door when she brings Jacob Allen home!
