A Baby Shower

A little over 2 weeks ago I had a baby shower at the house for my dear friend and old neighbor, Shawna.  Shawna has always been such a sweetheart to me and I wanted her baby shower to be as remarkable as her!  As you all know I am in no way a domesticated hostess-with-the-mostest!  In fact I am just about the total opposite.  It became clear to me while getting ready for the shower just how un-domesticated I am!  This was the first event I had at my house where more than say, one person, would be attending.  I was definitely nervous.  I co-hosted the shower with Anna and had some serious help on ideas from Megan - thank heavens for them both!   The shower was s huge success!  The best part was Megan's idea for a 'paint the baby a onesie' craft in lieu of traditional baby shower games.  What a GREAT idea.  Everyone who attended decorated a personalized onesie for baby Moore #2.  I absolutely love this idea and will use it again for future baby showers (ahem, Meredith Bookwalter, soon to be Sitko!} I also feel confident to have other events at my house without feeling like I won't measure up to the 'domestic diva' status I have created in my head.*

*I am coming to realize very recently through discussions with a close friend, of certain things I need to just 'let go' of.  Throughout discussions I've realized how silly some of the things I have created truly are.  Sometimes I let my mind go into overdrive, over-thinking, over-analyzing and therefore stressing out and making poor decisions.  Life doesn't have to be as hard as I have made it.  So in essence a self-inflicted 're-boot' has been done to my mind.
