Baby stuff check, invites check, sense of humor......hum?

I haven't posted in a few days. Sorry. I've just been so busy here at work but I have a few minutes so let regale you with the happenings of my life.

I got together with Jules to plan Preggers baby shower. Okay. Here's the deal with this whole thing. I love planning parties. I love doing parties. I just don't operate the same way jules does. My thought was we would each take different tasks and work on them and put everything together. Jules wants to do it all TOGETHER. pick the games together. buy the stuff together. do the invitations together. cook together. EVERYTHING TOGETHER. This is not how I operate. but I'm making the best of it. She came over Saturday and we picked games. Went to target bought the things we needed for said games. Talked about food, and have now picked a time and date. I think we did a lot. Please note party isn't till MAY 3. almost 2 months minus a few days.

Jules doesn't really offer much in the form of opinions. she's the girl who always checks with everyone else before ordering. The one who gets what you get because it's easier then picking something herself. Yeah. fun. So trying to get input from her is like asking my 5 year old nephew to explain relativity. So you have to know how to work it. I let her "think" it's her idea. For the baby memory game, which i DIDN'T want to play but I let Jules have that, I would see something and say "huh whats this" and then let her look at and say something like "think we should use this" which i would answer "sure". Or i would see what she liked and just agree. I'm trying here people. I'm trying. she did have an awesome idea for the prizes. Her sister is going to supply us with stuff form The Body Shop and all we have to do is include her card in the bag. Sounds good to me.

It has been interesting to say the least. When I'm throwing a party I just see it in my head and make it happen. Jules wants detailed lists. I'm cracking jokes, laughing and having a good time and she's all BUSINESS. She wants everything done and ready to go and I'm going "calm down we have over a month". Needless to say I'll be getting the plates and decorations. I don't need any help in that area. I might pick some more stuff up for the games because they seem a tad lame right now.

P.S.
MY APRON CAME!!!!!!! I will try and post good pictures of it later this week. It's super cute!

First I thought I was Jules and then I thought I was you but now I know I'm both of you.

You are abetter woman than me. I can't really handle baby showers. I endured three with my first born and they were for me.(although the one with the male stripper was classic as my girlfriend knew nothing about baby showers either) The last one I went to was all about the Earth mother and we had to bring a gift to read to the baby to make her feel welcome and be easy on her mom. We then preceded to sprinkle flowers on the mom and massage her feet. I was in a panic thinking what else will we have to massage. Yes, that's a true story. Hope I made you laugh.

Cathy-
Oh my god! I really don't think I could have dealt with that. Look I'm all for having your own "thing" but that seems a tad crazy to me. I'm pretty sure the whole time I was there my head would have been going "These people are nuts-oh, I'm not drinking this punch" or secretly wishing for the child to be a real brat.
