I was thinking that January is no good cause that's too close, plus people will have spent a boat load of money during the holidays so you know, less money, smaller gift. (Yeah I know but that is the purpose of the baby shower right? Otherwise I'd buy everything myself)
In December I'd have to do it like the first week so that it doesn't run too close to the holidays and again people haven't spent too much yet. However, the first weekend of December DH and I have our yearly tree trimming party where we invite all our friends and family to come and help us trim the tree. It's become a tradition since we bought our condo. People look forward to it all year, me included and we don't want to skip it this year as we hope to be in a new home and it would serve as our house warming.
So then what November? Before turkey day? Is that too early? It sounds like it. But then maybe that would be a blessing in disguise?? I wouldn't be HUGE and it will be easier to find something to wear and I'll probably be less exhausted. What do you ladies think?
