baby mamma party

Monday, April 6, 2009

this weekend some of my best college friends and i all gathered in cleveland to celebrate a duo baby shower for mistiburr and poo poo (pictured on the right).

friends from as far away as LA, st louis and chicago all made the trip to help celebrate the baby mama's party.

the party was hosted by myself, beaver and muffin and was held at muffin's home in lakewood. it was catered by duet's (which i highly recommend) and was an evening cocktail party shower (which i recommend even higher).

night time showers for both bridal and baby are the way to go, i'm a huge fan. at least when the shower is at night you kinda have an excuse for drinking a bottle of wine in an hour and a half.

i know i have mentioned before on this blog that i'm ridiculously lucky in that i have the most wonderful group of friends. friends that i can count on for anything - people that share and celebrate all the major events in our lives.

we're all pretty lucky to have each other.

beaver, shelly, holler, MOB, court, muffin


big pete, tigger, shna and mistiburr


everybody now - HANDS UP!


everybody now - do the muffin face! nailed it.


at dinner at brio on friday foxxy brought up the idea that we should all watch some of the home videos from college and after the wine, presents, and dinner we decided to do just that.

let's just say my stomach hurts from laughing so hard.

the videos we were watching were from september 2001, i.e. a loooooooooong friggin time ago. it was a combination of a dream and a nightmare for all of us watching the videos whose general theme was "you think you know, but you have no idea" - dear lord.

late night parties, karaoke to enrique, 21st birthday celebrations at tim's, card tricks, binge drinking, school projects, college, college and more college.

my next goal is to convert these videos to DVD, edit and share them. they are just too good to keep to ourselves.

but officially after watching these videos none of us could ever run for public office.

good times, good times.

  8. You and your friends always look so lovely in pictures. Good thing, since I swear that camera is a growth out of your hand! hahaha.

  9. I think this evening trend with alchohol would definatly spice up a shower. You can really like someone, but hate sittting at church for hours watching people open gifts. Dread.

    Now, someone needs to get married so I can start this as a tradition!

  10. Wait people flew in from out of state to attend a baby shower?!?! Wow! I avoid going to baby showers when they are in the same city as me.

    I can only hear girls say "oh my god so cute" so many times.

  13. Can I give my friend's your number so they know how to throw a baby shower?

    I'm serious.

    They wanted to throw me a baby shower brunch with egg caserole.

    Who eats egg caserole?

  15. Wait a minute.

    Am I getting this right?

    A baby shower at night with drinking?

    How is that fun for the pregnant lady?

  16. It sounds like you have a great group of friends!

    I've never been to a night time shower but I like the idea of it.

  17. I'm with Kristen on this one. Drinking, at night, seems okay for a bridal shower, but not for a baby shower.

  18. I too am a HUGE fan of alcohol at showers. My sister's baby shower went on until 4am!! Wouldn't have it any other way.

  20. I told B this weekend that the ONLY reason I'm not President of this nation is because of my affinity for belching in public. I'm pretty sure that's it.

  21. i LOVE that it's called a baby mamma party. heh.

    also: dude. i know preggers women can't drink and all, but there's no way i'm subjecting my friends to a baby shower one day without giving them some alcohol to help them through it.

  22. Absolutely love the idea of hosting Bridal and Baby Showers in the evening -- next time I'm in charge, I'll keep this in mind ;)

    And, if arrangements aren't able to be made for an evening soiree, there will most definitely be mimosas and bloody mary's flowing during the (otherwise dull) brunch*

    xo,
    Kelly
