"C" is for Cupcakes

Several of my friends hosted a baby shower for me and John over the weekend.  It was more like a big party, but it included gifts and yummy, perfectly-decorated cupcakes, so I can technically call it a shower.

The sweet hosts who went all out!  See the T's on the cupcakes for Tully?!

Highlights included:
  • delicious appetizers and desserts, including antelope sausage from New Mexico, pork sliders, my favorite chicken wing dip, fruits, veggies, cupcakes, and homemade oreo "lollliops";
  • a mad-lib game that had us all rolling;
  • an excessive amount of drinking (for the non-pregnant attendees, of course);
  • hangout time around the chimenea for the guys;
  • gossip time on the couch for the girls;
  • a very adventurous, yet extremely short road trip; and
  • rockband
Soon-to-be dad and mom.  Ahhhhhhhh!

The girls!
Although talking about and celebrating the upcoming arrival of Tully was probably the highlight of the evening for me, I think the most fun part of the shower was an unplanned, one-mile roadtrip to one of the host's previous rental houses.  They still had an active lease on the house for the month of March, even though they are already moved into a new place, and they had discovered a squatter on the premises the day before.  What do a bunch of intoxicated people want to do when they hear this story?  Go see the squatter, of course.  So we took the party on the road and piled into our SUV to visit the rental house.  The dude was still there and totally shocked to see a crowd of people.  The girls safely watched from the car, while the boys interrogated him.  Apparently he was "house sitting."  Riiiiiiiight.

In any case, I think everyone had a really great time.  Thanks, girls, for an AWESOME baby shower.  I can only imagine what's going to happen when we do a sip-and-see when Tully arrives.  Should I schedule to have Grams pick the baby up before we get out of hand?!


  1. A squatter? That is too funny!

    And the Oreo pops look yummy. I just added them to my "must-make" list!

    Tully will be here so soon!
