Back to back baby showers

On Friday afternoon, my office held our holiday party. We ate tasty hors d’oeuvre from Russia House (mini crabcakes, veal meatballs, shrimp on crostini, etc.), drank some specialty wines (pictured below), and had a white elephant gift exchange. Unbeknownst to me, the staff had also organized a surprise baby shower for me. It was wonderful because they ordered vanilla baby shower themed cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcakes, the best cupcakes in the metro DC area (in my opinion, they should have won top cupcake in the metro DC area while the Washington Post was running that story). Our baby received some very cute outfits, blankets, and accessories. Thanks to my wonderful coworkers.

On Saturday evening, my family threw a baby shower with over 40 people in attendance. My husband and I cleaned and prepped the house, I prepared the appetizers and my family prepared the main dishes. When guests arrived, we played baby shower games and opened up a ton of presents for the baby. After the party ended at midnight, my husband and I were so exhausted after our long day but we took a moment to think about how blessed and happy we are to have such a great support network as newbie parents.


Shout outs

My 3 sisters and sister-in-law threw me an amazing baby shower recently and I wanted to send them a public shout out.

Thanks girls! You’re the best sisters ever. The food was great, of course. We had banh chow, spring rolls, chicken wings, and exotic asian fruits for dessert.

Thanks also to my very best friends (from childhood and now in womanhood) and my cousins whom I would do anything for.

You all probably already received the cheesy thank you notes I sent but I thought I needed to say it again. I love you all!
