Hey Ladies (and a few guys)!
No I won't have a shower for a long time from now, well not the one I'm referring to. Let me give you a quick background then the question.
I haven't been home (live in Botswana, Africa) in what will be 2.5 years by the time I go home. I was single and no kids last time everyone saw me. I grew up in the same house my entire life and same church (until college) so I have a lot of deep rooted connections. When I go home in November my bf is going to throw me a baby welcome shower as baby girl will be about 6 wks when I fly home. (Hopefully DH will be with us as no one has met him either!!!) I asked her if she would be willing to do the shower and she was more than happy to do so! There are so many things you can get in the US that you can't get or are really expensive here in Botswana!
Am honestly thinking maybe 50 women will come (not counting those that have teenager girls that may come as well. Some I used to teach them!) Is it a lot for me to burden my friend with as the cost implications? The big cost I know will be food...I told her it could be done potluck style or we can ask certain people to bring and cater...What do you ladies think?
Any ideas at all are fine! I'll probably have to do an open invite at my parent's church as I grew up there, but I really don't mind! Just worrying about the money side of things (no she hasn't voiced a concern in the finances at all but we just started talking)TIA!!
