Earlier this month, I flew to DC to throw a super kicking (no pun intended) baby shower for one of my dearest besties, Kristina.
From the moment I landed, we were busy hamming it up.
The shower was at the home of another dear law school friend, Gina. She's a ham, too. (We hams stick together.)
As the sex of Baby C was unknown to the eager parents, the shower theme was sort of polka dotty and book-y. Because who doesn't love polka dots and books? Gina gets full credit for this amazeballs cupcake thing that she did. She's not even on Pinterest, people. She is just this awesome.
Kristina's wonderful, fantastic, brilliant and sassy sister, Anna, also ditched her college studies at Michigan to attend the party. So irresponsible, Anna! (I kid.)
Friends came. They brought presents.
Which ranged from useful and portable collegiate propaganda:
To useful and slightly cumbersome jumping paraphernalia:
The shower was not without its antics:
Or its share of sentiment:
Or its bump competition:
Suffice it to say, a good time was had by all. Including me. But, you know what? After living in Texas for years, it's DAMN COLD in DC in the winter.
But, I digress. Kristina and Jamie, we love you!
