( Playing Catch-Up Again - Day 20 and 21 )
My friend Sabrina's baby shower was awesome yesterday!
I went over early because I wanted to assist Dionne with set-up. We were super proud of ouselves for getting the canopies up by ourselves (because, you know, ladies can do anything!) I also loved that Dionne decided on a Pirate theme for the shower since Sabrina loves pirates and the initials for her baby boy will be ARR.
I was pleasantly surprised to be chosen as the winner for the first game. We had to draw a skull and crossbones with a blindfold over our eyes. I've always considered myself a no-talent drawer but apparently, my skills improve when I can't see what I'm doing. *g* I also happened to be the only one who chose to use the whole page for my drawing. Everyone else did really small ones. My prize was a bottle of Mango Margarita Hand-Soap from Bath and Body Works. It smells awesome. :D
I think the funniest part of the shower was when Dionne brought out a sword and a skull cane and said: "All right, ladies, who's feeling athletic?" She wanted to do a Dizzy Bat contest (where you put your head down on the item, spin around really fast, and then run across the yard.) We all opted out though as it was too hot and we'd just eaten cake.
When I got home, Nick and I picked up a Gourmet Vegetarian pizza (zucchini, mushrooms, sun-dried tomatos, artichoke hearts, spinach, cheese, and a creamy garlic sauce) from Papa Murphy's. It was a great way to end the day, plus I have leftovers for lunch. WOO!
On a final note, only three more days until I start at the Pauquette Center and only two more weeks until I get to go to IOWA!
