For those of you dying to know -- Shower Weekend was a massive success!!

BF Kimmy's Baby Shower was a wonderful event full of lots of green and lots of frogs and lots of fun!! I am just so excited that my bestest friend (for 20 years now!!!) is having a baby! And I am so happy for her and her husband Bill that they got so many wonderful gifts last weekend and so much love from everyone!

Anna's Wedding Shower (which began just 20 hours after the baby shower ended) also went fabulously! Lots of fun had by all and lots of gifts for Anna & George to start their married life with! (Umm.. however, I am a horrible MOH and failed to take ANY photos. I suck!)

I realized something though, that I had previously failed to notice as a shower-giving friend: Moms are crazy. The only real stress associated with each shower was with the Mothers of my girlfriends. Baby Shower Mom hated the ugly room we had the shower in and was upset about the lack of seat assignments. Wedding Shower Mom was in arms over the fact that we didn't buy those pastel mints (gag me) to put on the tables and that another bridesmaid and I kept telling her to sit down and enjoy herself rather than running everything. I always tried to be nice to the Moms, but ultimately I feel like my role is to make the mom-to-be and the bride happy. Who knew that showers could make Moms so crazy?? Luckily, I am sure my mother will be totally calm whenever I get around to having my showers. We'll just share a few drinks and have a good time (right Mom?)!

In addition to all of the Shower-Craziness, I was also able to spend some time with my awesome family! I had dinner with everyone (from Buffalo's famous Chinese/pizza/wing/bar restaurant), caught a movie and did some shopping with Kel (my lil' bro's gf), watched Nephew play some soccer (perhaps full-contact sports are not his thing, but he wants to be an animal rescuer anyway, so lay-off!), had a super fun time at a party thrown by my sis-in-law (and bought lots of yummy treats), and enjoyed having the "Sneks Girls" (Mom, sis-in-law, Kel and me) at both of the showers! I also enjoyed the whole 6 hours I spent with Ry!!

Oh, and did I mention that my car had to stay in Buffalo while I came back to the Little Town with my mom's car (Thanks Mom!) because I HAD to give a final??
Overall though, I think the weekend was a HUGE success!! And I already miss all my friends & family!!
