One of Dave's coworkers around here offered many months ago to throw a baby shower. She has never been to one in the US so would have to look things up. As time went on planning started. Another friend offered to help plan too. Then I think Dave recruited a third person to help that had actually been to a baby shower before. So Sachi, Hilary, and Brenna planned the baby shower. Dave wanted it at our house even though Brenna offered her house. At first I said we should have it at Brenna's but then I caved to letting him have it here. I initially didn't want it here because I shouldn't have to clean for my own shower. But then I gave in. Now that it's over I think spending a full day before and the morning of the shower cleaning made me a bit too exhausted.
I don't have many friends around here and ones I do have from Dev Bootcamp are in the city or moved back to where they were originally from. I was worried nobody would come. I was also getting worried that the people who could potentially come, wouldn't be able to because the invite but went out late. We ended up with about 15 people.
Brenna played games with Nikita while I was socializing. I didn't want to play games myself right away. I thought some people who don't like games would leave and also I tend to not like games.
At 5 most people left. I wished they would have stayed longer. I always want people to stay longer.
I'm so thankful for everyone that was able to make it out. We had such a fun time or at least I did and they pretended to. But I also wish some people we invited didn't have other obligations so they could have shared in the day with us. I'm really thankful for the three people throwing the shower.
