YES it’s a global pandemic but ALSO YES we wanted to safely celebrate the fact that we’ve finally made it to this dream place, and bonus, see the top half of our friend’s faces. Getting to have a baby shower has been a bit of a carrot for me during these last few years of struggle, and I knew I wanted some semblance of one, but WITHOUT becoming a CNN headline like ‘SAD DELUSIONAL WOMAN WITH WEIRD PRIORITIES SICKENS ALL OF HER CLOSE FRIENDS AT VERY CUTE BABY SHOWER.’ So with some help from Mackenzie, Morrison, the CDC guidelines, Amazon Prime and very many hand sanitizers, we managed to to pull together a bit of normalcy and even joy, for which I am very very grateful. Friends dropped by in time windows (which meant I got to have ACTUAL conversations with everyone, which rarely happens with regular, non-pandemic droplet parties), tacos were individually wrapped, Morrison discovered an incredible Spotify playlist that featured every song that’s ever been written with the word ‘Baby’ in it. MOST IMPORTANTLY, my two most important shower boxes were checked: 1 — I STOOD BENEATH SOME BLUE BALLOONS and 2 — I GOT TO HAND OUT TREAT BAGS THAT CAREFULLY FOLLOWED A COLOR AND THEME.
IF I’M BEING HONEST WITH MYSELF AND YOU, GUYS REALLY I JUST HAD THE PARTY SO AS TO HAVE A REASON TO ASSEMBLE THE BAGS.
