I spent last weekend in Death Valley celebrating Life.
Isn't my niece adorable???
Sister's shower (jungle themed, like the nursery)
1). a party with actual people....
Fortunately, I had my amazing Mom there to help. She cut up about 50,000 vegetables
and I made 50,000 cupcakes! (Don't judge, I am learning...).
|My Niece really likes potato chips, which Sister just finished eating.|
Pinterest, Mom and I were full of jungle themed ideas, and with the help of Sister's Sister-in-law who made this awesome diaper cake :
Asian Noodle Salad, Beef Barbacoa with homemade salsa, Sweet and Sour Pulled Pork with this marinade and slaw, Chicken Satay skewers with peanut sauce, Spinach Enchiladas, Spicy Fruit Salad, Pineapple Mango Bread Pudding, and various dippy things for various crackery things. We also served Margaritas and Jungle Juice...which was ginger ale and pineapple juice, not to be confused with this Jungle Juice...it was a Jungle Baby Shower, people! Not Animal House!
We played one game, which involved tasting baby foods. I tried to choose the worst flavors possible...
I am still not sure if I should compliment their palettes.
The Ladies adjourned to the living room for gift opening while the men sat around and did things men do. Like make fire and grunt, I am sure.
Sister opened a lot of presents. It was great to see her smile so much. I wish I could show you everything, but that would be a ridiculous amount of pictures... if you want to see more, send me a message and I will send you a link to an album. There were also some people with fancier cameras who are going to give me their pictures...trust me they are better.
|Yay! Dirty Diaper Disposal!|

I think we all had fun. I hope all the people who came to the party did too!
Stay Cheesy! And Blurry!
