The child army continues to grow. One the right, my fellow VT Lacrosse victim/friend Catherine. This shower was good because Catherine was pregnant with her second child and unable to make the wedding so I at least got to see her here. On the left, my fellow college bartender and partner in sweetness Carrie, who is currently pregnant with twins! Carrie visited me out here a month or so ago and broke the news to me very early. She didn't tell very many people so I decided to spread a rumor that she was here getting a consultation for DD breast implants. No one believed me, but Carrie and I got a kick out of it nonetheless. Carrie has always been a skinny minny so we are all hoping she gets super fat because it would only be fair if that were to happen.
Speaking of super fat, I look so damn terrible in these photos, yuk! Plus I was pale. I had not lost all the "relationship" weight I had gained (40 lbs!) when my husband and I moved in together. Thank God it came off (and stayed off thank you very much) before the big day.
See how much longer my mom's hair was already? My aunt Catherine in the middle drove down with my mom and my aunt Helen from Philadelphia and my mom's cousin Brenda, on the right, came and met them from another part of Virginia about 2 hours away. It was so nice to see everyone.
My husband's family is from the burbs of Philadelphia so a couple of them were able to make it too. His aunt Maxine, in the middle, is such a sweet and talented lady. Her eldest daughter Rochelle, on the left, lives in Bethesda and well as her youngest daughter Leah, on the right. Leah and I get along really well so it was no surprise that she won the trivia contest we played and took home a nice little party favor. Chris, my paisan and overall bestie, made some delicious food and her big comfy home was the perfect spot for a relaxing shower.
