The Baby Shower...excuse me...Party!

Today I received my baby shower invitations in the mail! YAY!! Did you notice that I said invitations, as in plural?? Well, there is a reason for that...

One of our best friends Jeff had this crazy idea that he wanted to throw Eli a baby shower. He just thought it would be super fun to try and take on this feat. A) because he's a guy and he thinks a guy planning this is hilarious and B) because he LOVES to have everyone together to hang out with and what a better way to do it than to throw a shower...or as he calls it, a party.

One of our other best friends Meredith also said she would like to help throw a baby shower. So, after a while, it just seemed best for Mere and Jeff to work together instead of having separate ones, so that's where the story begins.

Jeff decided that he wanted to make his invitations extra special, so after I gave them the shower invitation list (which I hate doing because I always feel like I'm leaving someone off, which I'm sure I did...) he had me mark the ones that he could send invitations to, and then he had Meredith send the rest of the list her invitations. Basically, all the family members would be getting Meredith's adorable invites, and then the friends or people that understand Jeff would be getting the special invites. Instead of trying to go into any type of explanation, it's probably just best to let you see the invitations. I'll put a better picture up of Mere's invitations when the camera battery is recharged...it died while I was taking the picture.

Meredith's super cute invitations!
