So Evie will be 2 weeks old tomorrow. I can't believe it.
As most of you remembered, I wasn't going to have a baby shower before baby came because we were team green and I'm picky and didn't want a bunch of useless gender neutral stuff, especially on the off chance that I was getting my baby girl (which, obviously, I did). So I told my birthing coach's mom (a lady at our church who puts these things together and had done my only other baby showers) that she had to wait and that I wanted an "after baby shower".
So today, she and the pastor's wife ask me when would be good to do it. They wanted to know if the first weekend in October is good. I honestly said no, cause we are going to Montana the 28th and will be there for 10 days and I need stuff before then and I've only be buying bare minimum and necessities cause I know some ladies are going to go crazy cause I got my girl.
So then, pretty much, the only option is to do it on a Thursday night. I can do a Thursday night and I'm pretty sure my mom can... so they made the announcement that it's going to happen the 22nd at 6:30 in the evening. Then when I was leaving church I realized that this means that DH's mom and gramma's can't come. Oh yeah, and there is that friend from up north that wanted to come down and wouldn't be able to do so.
So it looks like I will have two showers. One from the church before we leave for Montana to visit FIL, and then one when we get back on a more desirable day for the out of towners.
But now I've hit another snag. Saturday is pretty much out because my mom and DH's mom both work on Saturdays. We could do a Sunday around 1:30 or so, but then it makes it VERY difficult for my friend from up north (5 hour trip).
I'm gonna talk to my mom and MIL about it some more and figure it out.
