This past weekend I went home to assist with and attend my niece Madison’s baby shower. (She is due April 9!)
Home = York, PA. This is 130 miles away from the Wilkes-Barre area (about 2 hours by car) so if I go home, I usually stay overnight. Driving there and back in one day is too much. Especially when I have Lola riding shot-gun.
Lola has her own seat belt attachment to allow her to ride in cars. She sits in the front seat because she is a spoiled little jerk.
Also included in my trip home was a stay in the guest room’s twin bed.
My sister got home before me and claimed my old room and my former, more spacious full bed. This is fine, though. I did not mind the twin. Reminded me of my youth.
The baby shower was pretty normal as far as baby showers go. There were games:
And way too much food:
My sister made all the cookies and cupcakes from scratch. She is really talented and creative. Those diaper pin cookies had fondant accents. I mean, come on. My skills include knowing every state’s capital and being a Notary Public.
Oh, and obviously there was a cake:
Oh and someone else who is a far more creative person that I made these centerpieces. They are baby buggies made of diapers and have baby wash cloths inside of them:
When I finally made it home last night I was too exhausted to even move off the couch. It took legitimate effort to get upstairs. And now I feel like I missed out on a weekend. Someone please do the rest of my laundry. And fill out my college basketball bracket for work. I’m so tired, I may just pick Lehigh to win it all. Tiny Pennsylvania private universities F.T.W.
