So my friend #1 said she was goin to throw me a baby shower, make me a tres leches cake for it cause thats what Im craving and then do this and that and the other. After talking to another friend #2 it was agreed to have it at her house since I have no parking and I dont want my guests getting parking tickets thanks to the city's stupid no parking signs. Well I threw up an invite on FB just so I could get names and addresses for the official invites. Then me and my DH's roommate (friend #3) went looking for what kind of decorations/theme I wanted.
But so far #1 has yet to come to my house to work on the invites, which we were waiting on cause I wanted the 3D u/s pic on them, but Ive had the pics since the 8th now. I dont think #1 has even went looking for decorations let alone I dont know if she realizes she has to buy the decor or what!? at least #3 is goin to buy some of the food for me to cook. (yes I said I am cooking, even not being PG I am SEVERELY anal about food being served ...and with it being a certain type of food I dont want it messed up by Yankees! lol no offense Yanks!)
DH even stopped by #1's work and said that I had been waiting for her to come over for help with the invites and she told him she didnt know I wanted her to come over! I told him "uhhh You heard me tell her at least once to come over before work, and then that following day I told her again to come by and I thought she was goin too". On top of that she has called me 2 times concerning someone wanting to buy one of our husky pups (anyone in the NE area that wants a husky??) and not once mentioned a THING about the baby shower.
Maybe Im over reacting, but the shower is the 13th of March. I figure that my guests should be getting there official invites by now so that we have time for an official RSVP count. Plus any out of state family and friends need their invites mailed like a week ago in my opinion. And my DH wont openly freak out, but I KNOW he has been stressing cause we had some unforeseen financial problems right after we found out I was pg, and all the money we had saved up for the baby has went away. And as much as I dont like "begging" for gifts or asking for help, he and I are really counting on this shower to help us with stuff for Little Turtle. And friends #2 & 3 cant afford to do it....
I know its an old school faux pas to throw your own shower, but what do I do? any suggestions?
