I once went to a baby shower where baby diapers were passed around. In these diapers were melted chocolate bars like Snickers or Mounds or Pay Days and we were supposed to guess by looking and smelling which diaper held which candy bar. I think some guests might have taste tested with a finger.
This is not that kind of baby shower. This is a surprise virtual baby shower thrown by a bunch of us bloggers who wish we could be there in person to shower our friend, our very pregnant friend, Gorillabuns with baby shower love. Since she’s all the way in Oklahoma, this post will have to do.
I can’t remember how I met Buns- did she find me or did I discover her? Regardless, over the years she has become a dear friend. Someone I have exchanged lengthy emails with, gifts and mixed cds. Buns is the kind of blogger friend that comes to mind when someone asks me why I blog. Because I get to meet people like her! I can only hope that one of these days we’ll meet in person. (And she won’t be with child so we can have some cocktails and be inappropriate and talk trash.)
In the spirit of being inappropriate and participating in the party, how about you share with us the worst baby shower game you’ve ever had to play. Gorillabuns would get a kick out of hearing those stories. She’s the kind of girl you can sit next to and say what you’re REALLY thinking.
Buns, I hope you feel the love today coming to you from all across the U.S. (and Canada!) and that the gift we’ve gathered together for you reminds you that you are cared for. I hope you have a safe, easy birth and a beautiful, healthy baby.
