About me: So I'll admit, maybe I'm a liiitle bit of a control freak...maybe..And I love to be creative and plan things..
So when the shower came up I really wanted to be a part of the planning and decorating.. IS THIS NORMAL???
Also- I wanted my mom to be the host, and she is excited to help! My MIL also wants to be a part of it, too. But is having my mom co-host with her OK or is that faux pas?? Its just that she really knows me best and is in the best position (financially and schedule wise) to do so..
Finally- My last dilema.. I really wanted to have the shower at my own house.. We just bought a house, and with this all hapenning so close together we won't be having a housewarming party. Now, don't misunderstand where I'm going here, lol I'm not trying to get two parties in one! I just want everyone to get a chance to see our house. I'm really proud of it! And it will be a lot easier to not have to transport presents after. Anyone else have a shower at their own house or am I crazy here??
The other option that my MIL gave for where to have it was at a VFW (veterans of foreign war) But I didn't like that idea. I just felt that it was a little..not cozy.. Its a bar, there is a function hall, but its very much mostly a bar.. Am I being too stuck up about that?? (No one else's house is suitable for a large amount of people..)
Let me know what you think, I'm the first of my friends/family to have a baby, so I don't have much experience with this..
