Actually, that's my friend Amanda, but Lily is in her tummy.
I've been meaning to update you guys with pictures from the baby shower I went to this weekend. I took so many pictures, it was a daunting task to go through them.
I arrived a couple hours early to help Autumn in the kitchen and with decorating. She was very frazzled, but it turned out completely awesome.
I brought good old fashioned pigs in a blanket to round out the fare. I used little beef sausages, because I don't eat beef. Otherwise, these would have been a downfall for me.
We also made dirt pudding. The flowers weren't edible, but everything else was. :)
For some reason, we had Mandy serving the dirt pudding. lol...
We played a game where we had to draw a baby's face on a paper plate on top of our heads. I won the contest for Worst Baby Drawing. I'm already a really bad artist. I think I could have won it even without it being on my head.
It looks like a butt. Butt face baby.
My fabulous friend Kirsten and her plate.
Then, came lots and lots of presents. We gave her mostly clothes, because Amanda actually lives in Fairfax, VA. She moved last summer to join her hubby there for a job. Boo. :( I miss her!
"Love for Life"
I found pink Carebears stuff!!
The whole gang:
It was so much fun! Now, I can't wait to meet little Lily. She's due May 28!
Oh ya, this is a food blog..................................
Tonight, I brought out the crockpot because I found boneless pork ribs on the clearance rack at Vons. Yum-O!
My crockpot roast included:
- boneless pork ribs (clearance!)
- yukon gold potatoes
- red potatoes
- can of cream of mushroom soup
- chopped fresh mushrooms (thrown in for the last 45 minutes)
Tonight, I have bookclub. We'll be discussing Isabelle Allende's Daughter of Fortune. LOVED this book. Going to go chill with hubby before I have to leave. xoxo
Do you enjoy baby showers? Do most of your friends have kids?
