Baby Shower Today.........Good and Bad...Pics included.
 
So we had the baby shower today, It was fun for the most part. We didn't end up having alot of people show up which was annoying because we had so many say they were coming and didnt bother to show or call. Any way, so we only did 2 "games" not even games really. We did one where they guessed how big my tummy was....apparently everyone thinks i'm huge :( and then we did a diaper raffle to get diapers - we only ended up with 4 packages but better then none.


So the bad...We gave gift cards to the "winners" of the two games and both gift cards should have had $15 on each. One to Target and one to Starbucks. SO sister won the belly game and picked the Target one and a co worker won the diaper thing and got the Starbucks.....ONLY for me to find out when i got home that the stupid lady we had to deal with last night at target (who was SOOOOO rude) put $50 on the target card not $15, and because SO sister is always broke already spent the money on it, So now i have to call target and yell at them for that lady being so stupid and putting the wrong amount on and now i need to give my mom $30 back to cover it because who gives away a $50 gift card for a baby shower?

So my mood right now and really all day has been not to good, which sucks because i should be happy and i'm not. I just wanna cry and can't cause i dont want SO to see it. But on a happy note i guess here are some pictures from the shower...Hope you all enjoy. Also my 30 week and 31 week belly pics are gonna be here to.

First of all, you look great!!! I'm sorry you had a small shower (it's so irritating when people don't RSVP or say they're coming and then don't), but it looks like your baby girl got some wonderful gifts. Oh, and your cake was adorable -- I love the "blocks"!

I'd call Target and complain too. Good luck!

Looks like you had a nice baby shower!! It is sad that people don't care to call and cancel. You look great on the pics and looks like you got a lot of goodies. Have fun arranging them now :)

About the gift card.. would you be able to talk to the manager of the store and explain the situation. I do not think what happened is correct.. see if anything can be done about it.

Thank you so much, I feel huge and I'm just so done being pregnant, I want my normal body back.



thanks girls, It does suck that everyone acts like they are so happy and excited for you, but the ONE chance they have to come show it and share it with us no one comes, so then it makes you wonder if they are happy for you at all. As for the gift card, SO is gonna call the target store and see what they can do...If anything.

Thanks girls! Everyone says Its all baby, and for the most part i know that, but i still feel like a whale. The target thing still has me mad....but what i just realized about an hour ago, was the girl (SO sister) who got the card DIDNT even bring us a baby gift, and with that $50 she just got from us by mistake STILL DIDNT even bother buying a baby gift for us....how sad!?

Oh, that's too bad!!! Some people just have the nerve! (either not showing up or taking advantage of that $50 mishap and not even considering you).

I hope these bad things fade and you are able to celebrate your baby girl :wub: You got a ton of really sweet stuff and looks like you had a nice spot for it too! I love those baby block cakes, so darling!!!

I love the cake to, It turned out just how i wanted it. They matched the colors perfectly!


As for the whole gift card thing, SO thinks that we will come into money some where along the line because she did take advantage of us with it. Only time will tell, Whats done is done. I'm paying my mom back for the money that she's out since we were only thinking it was 15.

But on the bright side you got TONS of adorable gifts!! :wub:

for a small shower you got a lot of stuff though!!! You looks great! And that cake is so cute!!!

You cake is awesome! I love it! And it looks like you got some fantastic gifts!! I'm sorry about people RSVPing and not showing up or even letting you know that they couldn't make it. That is always frustrating. And I'm sorry that your SO's sister took advantage of you like that...did the card have the amount you thought you put on it ($15) written on it? If it did, I would have called you immediately when I realized that there was so much more! (It's especially frustrating since she didn't even bring something small for baby girl! And she's even going to be her Auntie!) I think your SO is right though, karma will come around and you will end up better off for it :)

((hugs)) I'm sorry some of your friends didn't show, I'd be upset too - but on the brighter side of things - it looks like it was nice day, your little girl got lots of cute little outfits and much need essentials and you got that gorgeous yummy cake!! :D

...the gift card situation sucks, do you have the receipt/ card statement to show you wanted/paid for $15, not $50?

I love the cake !!! You look great too. I would be even more upset about the card not only b/c she didn't bring a gift but because she's supposed to be family. Sorry you had a rough day :(
