My baby shower was today! Originally I was a little bummed because most of the people invited were out of town (I guess that's what I get for having a shower in the middle of July!) but it was really nice. There were only seven of us, so we had brunch at a restaurant that we all really like. It was really fun to get together with friends, and a lot of the people who couldn't make it sent gifts/notes which was really sweet! I don't have any pictures yet, but I'll have to post a couple when I get them (a friend took them). I was so excited that I got a lot of stuff off my registry! Maybe that's the difference between having a girl and having a boy! Lol! With DD I got TONS of clothes. This time, way less clothes and more stuff that I really needed, so that was awesome. Baby boy is getting plenty of hand-me-downs from friends, so I didn't need much by way of clothes (although it's still fun to get a few cute things!) I was thrilled to get stuff like the baby monitor, booster seat, etc. It was great to get out of the house by and have some "grown up" time... not to mention that it felt good to do my hair/put on make-up/wear something other than sweats .
That sounds like the perfect shower in my opinion I felt overwhelmed with my shower with my first, and felt bad that I didn't get a chance to talk to everyone and thank them personally. Glad you got some useful stuff
