From Shower to Shower

Ahh, Friday!

Thank goodness I've made it to yet another weekend... and I am thinking that I'm pretty well-prepared for A's bridal shower tomorrow - despite my disastrous experience (to be shared later) in the kitchen last night! Let's just hope I can do a good enough job cleaning out the oven, so that it won't smoke for me tomorrow, when everyone's at the house and I'm baking the breakfast casserole...

I go from hosting A's shower tomorrow morning, to a 4-hour couples baby shower tomorrow afternoon.

...Am still trying to figure out what exactly could be planned at this shindig to warrant a four-hour time slot. DH, on the other hand, is convinced that the hosts are intentionally trying to torture the male guests.

No further news on my friend G, or her wedding... just confirmation back from her that she'd actually only told me and three others about it. That's only half the number of bridesmaids she has, too... so I'm DEFINITELY keeping my mouth shut (as is DH, and his friend Adam) about it from here on out.

Work has been crazy this week. Currently my dept has 19 potential charitable contributions (or 'gifts') in the works... which is about 3 times the normal number for this time of year. I'm used to 19 or more come November, and definitely by December... but this is atypical for October. I'm hoping that means we're getting some done early, and we won't have near as many smushed into the last 2 weeks of the year... but that's most likely wishful thinking.

My belly is definitely poking out now. No hiding it, at 19 weeks (woohoo!). Though I am proud to say that I can still fit into two pairs of my 'big girl' non-maternity pants... if only for another week or so.

Enjoy the weekend, ladies!


  1. Wishful thinking indeed : )

    You look great! Hope the ear infections are all cleared up now!

  2. You're a busy lady!

    Thank you for your kind words on my blog today. It was exactly what I needed to hear. Time for some soul searching and a major life-change when it comes to the food in my life.

    Sometimes it just feels so overwhelming, you know? Good thing I love the veggies. I'm going to start a new and improved grocery list for this weekends trip. Time for an overhaul!
