Showered With Playgroup Love
Every Friday I go to play group at my friend Beth's house who lives across the pond. This past Friday they threw me the perfect baby shower. It was just the girls in my neighborhood and 2 other friends. Besides fabulous food including artichoke dip (my FAVORITE) and a homemade strawberry cheesecake, they gave me the best presents. First and foremost, cute clothes - my favorite thing about having a girl. But besides that, really thoughtful gifts. Marianne made a quilt for Aviva, Mary gave me a book that her mother used to read to her and her sister every year (which is out of print and she had to search down a copy she finally found from an elementary school library), Beth gave me a Robin Miller Quick Fix Meals cookbook, and Kristin along with other neighbors that live in my Court who weren't even invited to the shower gave me enough Babies-R-Us gift cards to get the double stroller I want! (not to mention my favorite Carters newborn gowns too) So I ask you, with all these favorites, how could it not be the best shower ever? Well, it was. so here's a shout out to all my girls - thanks for the good time!
