Well, we had an AMAZING night last night! Our Helen (my sister) organised a baby shower for me.... none of us had ever been to a baby shower before, but from what i can gather, it's basically just an excuse to get all your best girlfriends together and drink lots of champagne (that is, unless your the mum to be and you have to do with sparkling pretendy wine!!) and play silly games and open presents!!
Firstly, she organised everyone making a buffet - I tell you what - we should go into this professionally!! My mum made canape's, Kamala cooked a whole host of indian food (her specialty!), mum-in-law took friday off work to bake pies and allsorts, Leann and Meg made some amazing brownies and cakes, and my friend Fiona made the most amazing chocolate fruit cake i've ever tasted!!
There's no denying. Leann really does make the best brownies in all of england!!
And our helen's friend (who unfortunately couldn't make it as she was poorly) baked some lovely blue baby cupcakes!
This is the amazing chocolate fruit cake I was telling you about... I hid it in the pantry at 10pm so that I can keep it for when we get visitors over the next few weeks!
And look what my mum made... how impressive is this!!! I was so chuffed, and couldn't bring myself to eat any!!
Then Helen had organised loads of fun games and a quiz, and then we had presents.. boy did we have presents!! I was so lucky, and received some fabulous gifts from people....
My nana did a great job of keeping me right when I opened them and passing them round for everyone to see!
And the girls had even bought presents for dad (or presents for the little man that dad-t0-be could open...) his favorite TV show is Big Bang Theory, so Meera and Kamala bought the baby this little baby grow... he LOVED it!
Then Helen had bought some plain white baby-grow's and split people into teams and they had to decorate their baby grows in a way that represented how they were friends with me... it was INSPIRED!! And i've got some fancy decorative baby grows to hang on the nursery wall.
Anyway, it was a fantastic party, and I was desperate to share the pics with everyone - there are more pics on my facebook page too... So HUGE thank you to my amazing sister and fabulous friends for making it such a special time!! Lots of love Sara xxx
