Last Sunday I went to my brothers house in Aurora for my niece’s baby shower.
Earlier in the week I’d gone out shopping with Chris to pick up something on her baby gift registry. Instead of getting just one item on her list I got three, plus one extra gift. I couldn’t help myself! Plus it didn’t hurt that everything I bought had an extra 20% off either!
I got her and Eddie Bauer diaper bag, a Jolly Jumper baby carrier, a soother pin with a cute little duck on it and a teething ring that can be put in the freezer.
A lot of people turned out for the shower and she got a lot of gifts. She did really well! We all passed each gift around and some of the things were so very nice.
My sister and her daughter were also at the shower so I got a ride back to the subway with them. Well, actually my nieces boyfriend came to pick us up in his parents Charger. I didn’t realize how much that car had changed over the years!
I remember when I was in high school one of my good friends boyfriends had a Dodge Charger. I think it was a 1970 or ’72 or something and that was quite the car! The newer Charger that my nieces boyfriend was driving looked like a toy car compared to the old Chargers that I remember. It was a nice ride though. Very smooth.
I’d say it almost looked like a kit car. Maybe I got that impression because it had billet grilles, fancy hubcabs and other add ons. I guess my nieces boyfriends father must be a car enthusiast.
It was great to see some of my family and my niece who’s expecting. She looked great. She due near the end of February and it looks like they are having a little girl.
I’m pretty sure when the babies born that I’ll be buying more gifts. That babies going to be spoiled!
