Normally baby showers aren’t my deal. I find them too cutesy with the hats made of wrapping paper and the silly games. However, my friend Missy invited me to her baby shower and I like her and her husband Jeremiah
Aren’t they cute? So I told her I’d go.
Missy and I met about 6 years ago on an opera version of Macbeth. In opera, the non-singing parts are called supernumeraries. In Macbeth, the female supernumeraries were witches all gussied up in vintage black and white dresses and veils. Missy was a super-witch and I was the super-witch dresser.
The opera ran for a week in Tucson and a weekend in Phoenix and I had a great time with the super-witches, drinking at Irish bars after the show and acting completely inappropriate on several occasions.
Since then, Missy and I have stayed in touch while I went on tour and she went to China and when I came back through AZ on my epic road trip, I spent Easter with her and Jeremiah and we went to the roller derby.
This girl clearly has good taste in friends because her girl friends threw her a dinner baby shower open to couples and kids and served “Breakfast for Dinner.”
With tater tots and pigs in blankets. How great is that?
Plus her friends are cool. I love going to a party where I know 2 people and staying much longer than I’d intended because I’m meeting really interesting people.
And when the mom-to-be proves that she can still do splits?
Then you know it’s the Best. Baby. Shower. Ever.
Happy baby shower Missy and Jeremiah! Can’t wait to meet Baby P.W.!
I just have to say that.split is WAY impressive.
I know right?? Missy is a woman of many talents… You’d like her :)
Hey, you know what paradise is?
It’s a lie — a fantasy we create about people and places as we’d like them to be.
But you know what truth is?
It’s that little baby you’re holding. It’s that man you fought with this morning — the same one you’re going to make love with tonight.
That’s truth, that’s love……
Listen at you all philosophical quoting lyrics and stuff… :)
I’ve been to Paradise- (but I’ve also been to me.)
I can’t even do the splits when I’m NOT pregnant. That is super impressive. And now I’m hungry for a plate of this food.
tater tots are the world’s best compressed food product…
I LOVE YOUR LENS! My legs look so skinny. The best part about that picture is that everyone EXCEPT for you was discouraging me. Those goofballs.
At first I thought you were kidding! And then I was really impressed :) I’ll loan you my camera any time…
