Baby Craze!

Yesterday I attended my best friend's  baby shower. And if I must say so myself, what a delight! Seen some of my family members there as we'll as mutual best friends that I haven't seen in a couple of years.  As soon as we (me and my mom) walked into the venue all we seen was an illumination of hot pink everywhere, and then my cousins leaving. At that point (after I hugged and laughed with my cousins) I started thinking, 'Let the games begin!' And sure enough they did. We came in said hi to the "mother-to-be" then headed straight to the food line: meatballs, potato salad, deli sandwiches, lemonade, tuna salad, fruit, ice tea, along with other hand foods.

We then moved on to grub down (and let me tell you, the food was the bomb!).  We sat at a table with some more of my cousins and the mom-to-be family. We shared a plethora of laughs as we got to know each other (who would have thought it all started with a purse scavenger hunt game?).  Soon after we played "baby games" and moved on to the opening of the presents, then finally, the cutting of the cake.

When I left it had me thinking; about the preparation of a baby shower, to the entertainment at a baby shower. I mean, you can't just call a DJ up, have some strobe lights, with an empty dance floor like you could at a party. You would have to have a place for everyone to sit, eat, and mingle.   In regards towards the entertainment, what would a singer do at a baby shower? No, you would have to have a bunch of baby related games.
