I don’t know about you but I’m not exactly the biggest fan of showers…the wedding and baby kind, not the ones you do alone with a glass of wine or a cold bottle of beer. Although both of those things also make the others better as well.
While buying a baby shower gift a couple of weeks ago I wandered past an adorable sweater and decided I needed to buy myself a gift…like a reward for going to yet another shower. I gladly found my size and added it to the pile of baby paraphernalia and a new tradition was born. Every time I buy a shower gift, I get to buy myself a gift too. Whatever I want.
So when I get to the shower and have to create small talk with women I don’t know, and answer the same questions from the women I do know, I don’t seem to mind as much. I’m actually sort of looking forward to my next shower…there’s a pair of shoes I really want:)
