Besides the food ;o) my favorite part of the shower was the little ABC book we put together for him. Each guest got to decorate a page with a picture that started with the letter on their page and it was so funny and cute to see what people drew! There were some surprisingly good artists and some great senses of humor. (The "P" page was drawn by baby's grandma. I love her!!) And I loved the Koala shaped straw decorations. I designed them and cut them all out by hand with safety scissors at 2am. It was one of the most relaxed and enjoyable showers I've ever hosted, actually, I had a great time. Which is funny because I started preparing and making things at 11pm the night before. I love living on the edge with deadlines!!
Then I left my own party early to sneak off to my very first book signing, where I learned that I am definitely not famous. Haha. (Just kidding, I'm bigger than Miley, I know that.) But seriously, I did meet one wonderful person (literally one) and it was so worth it!! (Hi, Kara! Thanks for coming! You're so lovely.) And it was fun to sit and talk to the shop owner and his adorable little blonde, curly-haired, 5 year old boy who gave me hug after hug after hug for two hours. I really wanted to take him home with me. My sweet friend also came with me, which made me feel less pathetic, and I sold two books!! ...To...the shop owner. :O)
But I know you guys will all be there when I come to Portland and Seattle! And I can't wait!! Not sure what those dates will be yet, but I'll definitely let you know.
I hope you're having a great Monday!!
I love you very much.
