Re: January Randoms

  • @kiki047 Almost every bridal/baby shower I've been to had a game of some kind.  My least favorite ones are the ones that require me to pay attention to the entirety of the gift opening (ie: gift bingo).  Although the last 2 baby showers I went to were "green" showers, meaning no gift wrap.  The gifts just got put out on display and people could go look at them if they wanted, but otherwise people just mingled.  Waaaay better, and I wish that was a trend back when I had my wedding shower because I hate being put in front of a bunch of people to awkwardly open gifts.

  • @emeraldduchess yes! They have been out for awhile now. I was surprised too haha. 

    My bf just told me that he’s taking me out on a date tonight. If it’s to go grocery shopping or something I’m going to be sad. I could really use a date night. 

    Also, one of our tenants upstairs is going through something and she’s screaming in Punjabi and throwing stuff around. I’m going to knock on her door in a few minutes to make sure she’s ok. My bf told me to wait until it quiets down a bit cause she’s clearly going through something. I’m glad he’s the kinda guy who doesn’t try to interfere when he knows better haha. I feel bad for poking fun at her because we’ve all had bad days but it just sounds funny because she’s generally the quietest girl.

  • @shamrocandroll I could get behind the "green" showers. I am not a huge fan of opening gifts in front of everyone either. Plus, more time for mingling and eating sounds more enjoyable for everyone.

  • @shamrocandroll I love that idea for a "green" shower. I've heard it called a Display shower too. So much better!

  • @shamrocandroll I went to a baby shower like that last year.  It made sense because there we definitely more that 100 guests and the mother to be wanted to be able to talk to people and not have to spend a crazy amount of time opening presents.  Many of the younger guests were digging it but my my mom and her friends weren't.

  • My FIL is coming into town tomorrow and I just cleaned my house as if my MIL is coming. She isn't so I have no idea why I felt the need to clean so much. 
  • @emeraldcity603 at least now you can enjoy your nice clean house!

    @shamrocandroll I think it's about etiquette.  I get it, it's a party to shower the parents to be with gifts, and a lot of people do enjoy watching them open what they've picked out or made for them.  But, if you've got a massive guest list, that's a LOT of time spent sitting unwrapping (and a long time for your guests to have to sit and watch you unwrap!).

  • @b_1029 UGH, YES!  I keep getting the May 2019 waiting room one and the July '18 IVF one!  I did a "block element" in Ad Block Plus yesterday and that seems to have fixed it... for now.  But I'm sure it won't last.

  • These posts are making me smile today. Adorable pupper @kels0091! Let us know what name you choose.

    @prpl11butterfly wow I love how kids have no filters. There are probably plenty of people in our life who think things like that in their daily lives but only a kid would actually say it! So sweet.

  • Awe, puppy!!! Hes adorable @kels0091!

    @inthewoods23 it is definitely appreciated when it doesnt happen often. Its 1000× more exciting getting complements from random people then DH. He married me, obviously he thinks I'm pretty.

    @jennifer_louise It's not like the guys I work with could say that so having her say it was just so uplifting!
