I have been friends with this person since we were in diapers...we lived on the same street and our parents were friends. I don't think the person hosting her shower has a clue that she's tacky.
First the invite envelope had the return address stamped and the address to me a computer print out on a sticker...the stamp is what really looked tacky.
I open up the invite and taped to the corner is a ticket with a sticker saying Diaper Raffle and to bring a pack of diapers if I want to participate.
Then at the bottom of the invite it says "Baby has plenty of clothes". Ya....all I piratically got at my shower were clothes because people LOVE buying clothes and I would never dictate what they should or shouldn't buy.
If it was just an acquaintance I would send my regrets, we live in FL and the shower is in CA, and send an outfit hehe. But since this is my best friend from childhood who I still keep in contact with, I'm just going to play along with the demands and keep my comments to myself and if I even plan on attending it.
Just thought you guys would get a kick out of the tackiness. I always enjoy reading other people's tacky stories lol
